Cats up for grabs

I have two cats to rehome (preferably in Manchester) in the next week after
the person who was supposed to be taking them backed out at the last minute.

One is female, tabby / white, ~8 years old, intensely dislikes other
animals but loves people.

T’other is male, black, ~18 months old, loves EVERYTHING, purrs and mews
constantly, is basically a confused puppy.

Both need a good home, though not necessarily the same one. They do get
along, for a certain value of “get along”. I don’t want to part with them
but circumstances demand it. Posting here at Bob’s suggestion because geeks
love cats.
