tiggerAdopt a Cat or Kitten

We always have a selection of cute (and not so cute) cats looking for new loving homes. Also at certain times of the year we have lots of kittens also looking for loving homes

All our cats and kittens are vaccinated against Feline Flu,  Enteritis, and Leukaemia. They are micro-chipped,  health checked by our vet, treated for  fleas and worms and are homed with 4 weeks free Pet Plan Insurance. If they are over 5 months of age, they will also have been neutered by us. If they are under this age, we do ask you to get them neutered at 5 months of age, and that cost is down to you, as the new owner.  We can spend £175.00 or more on each cat or kitten before it is ready for rehoming. We do ask for a minimum amount of £70 per cat or kitten to help towards the costs of their care while they have been with us. If you can give more than this, it will help us to help more cats and kittens locally. If you are a tax payer, we can also claim Gift Aid on your donation, which will make it even more valuable to us and the cats we help.  


Before we home any of our cats, prospective owners have to agree to a home visit. As we will have spent a lot of time and money on our foster cat/kitten, the purpose of this visit is to ensure that our cat or kitten is going to be happy in its new home, and that we have matched the right cat/ kitten to the right owner.

Should you decide to adopt a kitten from us, you will be asked to sign a declaration promising to have the kitten neutered when it gets to 5 months of age. Please note that in the event of this promise not being kept, we will take the kitten back into our care.

If you live within our area and would like to adopt a cat or kitten, please contact our CATLINE on 01268 285778. Our Homing Officer will discuss with you what kind of cat you are interested in and you will be put in touch with one of our fosterers.sam

Alternatively, come along to one of our CAT HOMING SHOWS. These are like a cat show, but all the cats there are looking for a new home. The shows are held every month (see our Events Page for dates etc) and we take along all the cats and kittens which are ready for homing on the day. In this way, you can see them all at once!  We will endeavour to arrange your home check visit on the same day (or soon after) so that you get to take your new cat home with you as soon as possible (usually at the end of the show).
