SPECIAL APPEAL FOR CATS THAT ARE LITTLE MORE NERVOUS
We currently have a few cats in our care that are very shy and fearful and are looking for particularly rescue minded people willing to give them a chance to thrive and offer them a loving home. Some of the cats are fine with our staff but can be wary of strangers and need to learn to trust.
These cats are marked with this symbol 🐚. Sadly they have already been spending a very long time at the shelter and would benefit so much from being in a loving home.
If you have a bit of experience, patience and oodles of love to give please consider adopting one or two of our beautiful shier cats. You will be rewarded with their trust in the end.
Our cats are all neutered and microchipped, we provide lots of advice and life long assistance in the event of any future health issues or injury.
Key to symbols next to names:
😿 = Harder to home
🐚 = Shy cat
💗= Single cat (cat that doesn't like other cats)
🏠= indoor/house cat
💊 = medication required
All our cats for homing are neutered (or to be neutered = small kittens), micro-chipped, flea treated and vaccinated.
Our cats and kittens are rescued and are seeking caring, suitable, permanent new homes where they will be loved, respected and have a new chance in life.
We always carry out a pre-adoption home assessment. In normal times this would take place at your home but currently due to the coronavirus situation we are temporarily carrying out video visits. We provide any advice you may need about caring for and settling in new cats or kittens – incl. health care, feeding, holiday arrangements, dangers in your home etc. We also look at the location of your home to assess for hazards such as easy access to busy roads or for indoor only homes to advise on making windows or balconies safe.
Our cats have varied temperaments and needs so we also discuss what ‘sort’ of cats would be suitable for you, your family, your lifestyle and your home.
Since the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown we have been inundated with enquiries and offers of homes for our cats, obviously this is positive but, with a reduced team and new ways of working, we have been struggling to keep up with responding to enquiries as promptly as we would like to. We are trying to respond to everyone but please bear with us.
Please help us by using our email address to contact us rather than phoning the clinic and provide us with as much information as you can in your initial enquiry, e.g what sort of cats you are looking for and how many, a bit of information about your family and who lives in your home, tell us about your previous experience with cats, your address and a contact tel no. You can also send us photos and videos, all this information will help us process your offer of a home more quickly. If you are interested in a particular cat(s) please put this is the subject of your email.
As always we are particularly keen to hear from anyone who can offer homes to our harder home cats including suitable outdoor homes for feral cats.
Thank you for your patience. Canning Town Homing Team.
