We rescued a mum cat from a shop on Deptford High Street as she was unwanted by her owners who lived on the street. Thankfully, some compassionate people from the shops a few doors down took notice of her plight and decided to offer her refuge. We were contacted when it appeared she was soon to give birth and our rescue worker, James went to collect her.

Just two days in and she went into into labour on the 26th of March,  giving birth to ten kittens, a large number for one litter. Most mum cats give birth to four or six cats per litter and sometimes smaller with one or two. Sadly, two of the kittens died within the first day, leaving eight kittens in our care. 

With such a large litter comes increased responsibility, including the need for ample food to nourish and sustain the growing family. 

The family are being cared for in a foster home and will be ready for new homes at the end of May.

Because our cats are rescued we do like to meet potential adopters this can either be at your home (home visit) or via a video call e.g WhatsApp this is 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.

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.
