Colin Flower is an older ex stray male cat - approx 10 years old. He was reported to us as a stray in need of help because of his very scruffy battered appearance and because he was having trouble eating.
Our vets have carried out some much needed dental work and neutered him. Colin has also turned out to be FIV+ now that he has been neutered and is lacking in teeth the risk of him passing this on to other cats is absoloutely minimal. You can learn more about FIV here: https://www.celiahammond.org/index.php/faqs/fiv-cats
Initially very shy Colin has now relaxed with people and is enjoying being gently stroked, head rubs and chin tickles.
An adult home with a garden and cat flap is sought for Colin.
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.
