SPECIAL APPEAL SPRING 2020: FERAL AND SEMI-FERAL CATS SEEKING HOMES
Since restrictions on travel have now been eased we are now able to resume rehoming our feral and semi-feral cats whilst maintaining social distancing.
Spring is usually our busiest time of year for homing feral cats and it’s nice to get them settled into their new homes with summer time ahead. With the lockdown our feral cats have had to wait at our centres so we are keen to make up for lost time and get cats into new homes asap.
Our feral or semi-feral cats are those who have been born outdoors and although they are used to being around people they are wary of actual human contact. With kindness though some do become friendlier and enjoy human attention and being touched.
Feral cats are ideal as a rodent patrol and suit homes such as stable yards, smallholdings, farms and rural gardens. Semi-feral cats can also be a good option as garden cats for homes where a member of the family is allergic to cats and cats living indoors is not an option.
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.
We deliver our cats to their new homes in a purpose built holding pen in which to settle them into their new home before being released. We can re-home our feral and semi-feral cats to Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex, Surrey, Essex.Suffolk, Hertfordshire and London.
Key to symbols next to names:
😿 = Harder to home

All our cats for homing are neutered (or to be neutered = small kittens), micro-chipped, flea treated and vaccinated.
Please note that kittens will only be homed in a minimum of a pair
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 visit. This is an informal visit which takes place in your home. 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.
PLEASE NOTE: CANNING TOWN CAN RE-HOME WITHIN ANY OF OUR BRANCH CATCHMENT AREAS, SO NOT ONLY EAST LONDON AND MUCH OF NORTH LONDON, BUT ALSO SOUTH LONDON, ESSEX, EAST SUSSEX, WEST SUSSEX, MOST OF KENT AND PARTS OF SURREY. IF YOU ARE UNSURE PLEASE CONTACT US!
