Ginger-Belle has lived stray in a garden for several years, she is approx 5-6 years old and sadly had several litters of kittens in the garden most of which did not survive. We took Ginger-Belle in when she was heavily pregnant. The family were cared for in a foster home where Ginger-Belle was very good mother, all her other kittens have been homed except for her son Ginger-Bob (now 4 months old) who is seeking a new home with his mum.
A patient, very experienced home is sought for these two. Ginger-Belle is very friendly with people and likes being stroked but is temperamental and can scratch and bite - although much more gently than in the past. Ginger-Bob is a little shy.
An adult home with eventual access to a garden via a cat flap is sought.
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.
