This is Murphy who came into us as a stray, he was also known as "Lion Cat" in the neighbourhood where he lived. A member of the public was concerned that she was seeing him deteriorate getting in to fights and ended up with a sore eye. Murphy is quite shy and the person borrowed a cat trap caught him and brought him to us, our vets have neutered and chipped him.
He is shy but is gradually becoming more confident with people.
An experienced adult home is sought for Murphy, he can live with other cats. We estimate him to be around 6 years old.
UPDATE 17th SEPT: GOOD NEWS MURPHY IS RESERVED TO GO TO A NEW HOME!
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.
