Stitch is a very friendly black/white approx 11 year old male. He had previously been living stray for several years and had been neutered and returned to his feeder but was brought in because he was looking to be in poor condition. Our vets discovered that he required some much needed dental treatment which has now been carried out and some blood tests which have revealed that Stitch is FIV+
Stitch is seeking a new home, we will home him under our Long Term Foster Scheme whereby we will continue to provide his veterinary treatment for FIV+ related issues via our London veterinary clinics.
Stitch hates being caged and really wants the space of a home, ideally Stitch would like a home with some outdoor access but otherwise a spacious indoor home. We would also consider a short term foster home for Stitch.
UPDATE 12th JAN: Unfortunately our vets do have some health concerns about Stitch and he is going to have an abdominal scan to check what is going on. Update to follow.
UPDATE 21st JAN: Stitch is moving to a foster home. Our vet's are feeling a bit happier with Stitch's health so hae decided to monitor him further for now. Stitch is therefore moving to a foster home today and we will see how he gets on.
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.
