We have taken in 26 cats from a hoarder situation after their owner allowed the cats to breed out of control.
They are slightly nervous cats but are gaining in confidence but will require adult homes. They have are seeking new homes in pairs and are seeking homes with a garden and a cat flap, they are also living with a large dog.
UPDATE 16th JAN: We now have just 7 cats from this group still seeking homes. They have been growing in confidence and we have found that by seperately them two at a time from the larger group that this has really helped them increase in confidence and find new homes. We re assessing the remaining seven cats and will update as to who is available and can be rehomed with whom very soon. Florence Poppett is much older than the other cats and maybe able to be rehomed seperately. Updates very soon.....
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 our usual 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 assessment we match cats and homes and will suggest suitable cats to you. We can provide photos and short video's of our cats and discuss them in more depth, in which case 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.
