 Hovis is an approx 6 year old white / black male ex stray cat. Poor Hovis came into our care at the end of April with an enormous neglected abscess wound on his face. Our vets have treated the wound which has required multiple dressing changes and cleaning over many weeks but is now almost totally healed, he has also been neutered and microchipped.  The blue collar in the photo is a soft buster collar to prevent him from scratching the healing wound. 

Hovis was initially very shy and didn't appreciate the frequent dressing changes as he couldn't understand that we were helping him but now that his wound has healed he is enjoying stokes and head rubs and is a friendly cat. 

Hovis is seeking an adult home with a garden and cat flap.

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.
