Leona was collected as a stray from a garden on Friday 29th July, heavily pregnant she was infested with fleas, thin and very hungry. Leona was desperately tired and so grateful for food and a bed at one of our foster homes. Just 24 hours after arriving in our care she gave birth to five tiny kittens.
This family are being cared for in a foster home and will be ready for new homes in pairs from end September.
Update 25th Sept: There has been a lot of interest in Leona's kittens. One pair are now reserved to go to a new home and we have received more than enough offers of homes for another pair. Leona and one kitten are still available though.
The coronavirus pandemic did mean that we have altered our usual homing procedures. 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. We have 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.
Following a successful home assessment we can make an appointment for you to come and meet our cats.
We are prioritising homes that are local to our centres. 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.
