Hannah is a friendly 1 year -18 month old female cat. Hannah had turned up as a pregnant stray at a home in Walworth. The family took her in and cared for her and she gave birth to 4 kittens. Hannah became extremely protective of her kittens though and would not let her new owners anywhere near them, she had also taken over use of one of their bedrooms and they could not use the room as Hannah was so agitated. They contacted us for help and we moved the family to one of our very experienced foster homes. Hannah was a good mother but was so terribly defensive and protective of her kittens if anyone went near them but when she was away from them she became calm, gentle and loving again. We made the decision to seperate Hannah from her kittens and now that she has been neutered she is a normal loving cat again.
Hannah is seeking an adult home with a garden and would like to be the only cat in her new home.
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.
