These young cats were rescued as strays from a car park in Woolwich. Isabella and Forest both black/white females are the mothers of the other seven youngsters. Isabella and Forest are friendly and must have once been someone's pets and ended up either abandoned or living stray in the car park where they both had kittens. They were fed by concerned local residents but the kittens missed out on being handled by people as kittens and by the time we were called they were big kittens and we have been unable to bring them round.
Gumpy a black/white male, Wilson a white/black male, Denise a black/white female, Apple a tabby/white male, Sawyer a tabby male, Cherry a brindle tortie female and Cider a ginger/white male are approx 9 months old and are semi-feral.
They have all been neutered and microchipped and are seeking a suitable outdoor home such as at a stables, farm, smallholding or a garden home. They will require access to dry shelter e.g a hay barn or dry outbuilding or garden shed. They will need feeding every day with good quality cat food (the same as any pet cat would be fed) but will also earn their keep as an effective rodent patrol.
We can rehome feral and semi-feral cats to homes in Sussex, Kent, parts of Surrey and to suitable homes within London. We initially loan a purpose built relocation pen to keep the cats in for 4 weeks to settle them in and provide life long support and back up should it be required e.g with health care.
or if you are unable to send a email please leave us a clear voicemail message including your contact phone no on 020 8694 6545 your message will be passed to our homing team or come and visit us and our cats at our regular Open Days every Saturday and Sunday between 1p.m and 5p.m Please bring a donation of some cat food!!
MARCH 5th 2020: CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 SITUATION and Adoption Open Days
We have introduced precautionary measuresat our clinics and rescue centres to try and ensure the continued smooth operation of our veterinary and rescue services and to minimise the risks to the health and wellbeing of staff, volunteers and visitors and potential impact upon our animals.
Extra cleaning and hygiene measures including hand washing and sanitising and regular disinfecting of door handles, waiting room, and consulting room is in place. We are also reducing the number of visitors into the main clinic and rescue centre buildings to reduce risk of contamination to a minimum.
Adoption Open Day tours are therefore being temporarily suspended. Anyone with a booked appointment following a successful home visit will be able to visit to meet and choose cats as usual. Reception will also remain open for anyone wishing to drop in during our Adoption Open Day opening hours to register their interest in adopting a cat. We can also be contacted in the usual way by email and phone. Photos and descriptions of cats in our care awaiting new homes will be on our website.
We are sorry for any inconvenience caused but trust you will understand the reasons for this decision. We will keep the situation under review.
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.
