New Arrival: Friendly male cat. More info to follow shortly. Sir Box-a-lot was found abandoned in a cardboard box in a park. He was very lean but is now doing well. Ready for a new home soon.
Update 11th May: Our vets are carrying out some health checks with Sir Box-a-lot as he is quite lean and vomits quite frequently. Updates on this to follow. Otherwise he is a very friendly, vocal chap who seems very keen to be friends with other cats. Our vets are trying him on a diet for a sensitive digestion and we will see how it goes.
UPDATE 9th June: Sir Box-a-lot is being cared for on a foster trial whilst we continue to try and settle his tummy troubles.
CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 SITUATION and cat adoptions.
Following Government Guidance our Homing Centres are closed to visitors but we are able to rescue and rehome cats whilst following regulations.
The coronavirus pandemic does mean that we have had to alter 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 a physical 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 visit we now match cats and homes, you cannot visit cats or kittens in the rescue centre or our foster homes, instead we can provide photos and short video's of the cats and discuss them in more depth. If you wish to go ahead we deliver the cats / kittens to your home as a door step handover. Adoption paperwork is completed as far as possible in advance over the phone. You then adopt the cats or kittens on a trial adoption basis. Despite this being a new and unusual way to adopt cats we have so far found that adoptions are successful.
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.
