Polly is a very friendly middle aged female cat who was brought to us as a stray six months ago suffering with an excema type skin problem on her face. It has taken several months of tests and treatment to bring this under control but she is now looking so much healthier.   She does require a special cream applying to her face every day and medication (apoquel) once a day to control her skin condition, in time it may be possible to reduce or discontinue her treatment but her adopter should be prepared that she may require treatment long term. 

Polly is currently being cared for in a foster home but is seeking a permanent home where she will be the only cat as she is not particularly keen on other cats or dogs. Polly is a 'lap cat' and loves lots of fuss being made of her.  Polly is a homely cat but would like a home with a garden. 

We will continue to provide any ongoing veterinary care relating to skin issues for Polly under our Long Term Foster Scheme but this will need to be at either our Lewisham or canning Town clinic.

CAT ADOPTIONS:  The coronavirus pandemic did mean that we have had to alter our usual homing procedures. We are now in the process of returning to 'normal' but this will take some time.   Home Assessments:  Pre-coronavirus we would meet potential adopters in their homes (home visit) this was an informal visit to provide advice about caring for cats or kittens e.g health care, feeding, settling in and also an opportunity for us to feel reassured that you could provide a good home.  During the pandemic we replaced our usual home visit with a video call via What'sApp or similar to provide the same advice and so that you can also show us the cat relevant areas of your home e.g garden, location of a cat flap etc.  We are continuing with the option of an initial video call home visits or an actual home visits. 

Following a successful home assessment you are then welcome to come and meet suitable cats by appointment. For homes who initially had a video call we are delivering cats to their new homes to ensure are settled in with you and any further advice required is provided.  

We are continuing to prioritise homes that are local to our centres - except for feral/ outdoor cats.  Lewisham Branch Homing catchment area: All SE London and BR (Bromley) postcodes. Also N.Kent (Welling, Bexley, Sidcup, Swanley, Dartford), Croydon and SW London (SW8, SW9, SW2, SW11, SW4, SW12, SW16) If you can offer a home to a 'harder to rehome' cat we will consider homes outside our usual rehoming areas.
