Grizabella is a friendly young tortie female cat approx 2/3 years who turned up stray at a home in Forest Hill around Christmas time. The people living there started feeding her whilst searching for her owner but with no luck. They took her to a vet to be scanned to check a microchip but unfortunately she is not chipped. Found cat posters were put up in the area again with no response. Unfortunately Grizabella really isn't keen on other cats and is causing a lot of upset to the cats already resident in the home she has chosen for herself.
Grizabella is seeking a new home as an only cat.
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.
