Oliver and Nancy are very elderly cats approx 16 years old who were rehomed many years ago by ourselves as semi-ferals to a stables in Kent. The stables has now closed and the land was being redeveloped so Nancy and Oliver have lost their home. Their days as outdoor cats are now past, Nancy has quite a pronounced head tilt and they are just too elderly to live out. They are quite relaxed around people provided they don't have to be stroked. Nancy is actually quite chatty and will aproach at feeding time.
Generally our staff and volunteers take on cats like Nancy and Oliver as long term foster cats but we have had several very old ex feral cats in recently and are short of offers of homes for Nancy and Oliver.
A quiet, adult, rescue minded, secure indoor home is sought. We will continue to provide their veterinary care under our Long Term Foster Scheme via our Lewisham clinic and would also help with capturing and transporting for veterinary appointments.
Please note: We do carry out a pre-adoption home visit. This is an informal visit that 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. Once a successful home visit has been carried out you will be invited back by appointment to meet suitable cats either at our Rescue centre or at our local foster homes and choose your new feline companion(s). If you are interested in offering a home to one or more of our cats you are welcome to visit one of our Adoption Open Days prior to having a home visit but unless you have had a successful home visit you cannot choose or reserve cats at one of our Adoption Days.
