Cookie is a nearly two year old neutered male cat who is in need of a new home with a garden. He is living with his current owners at the moment who live in a flat without a garden, they think that Cookie really would benefit from a home with a garden so have asked us to help find him a new home.
They have let us know that "He is an extremely handsome cat with a fun personality, the issue in our home is we live on a 2nd floor flat which means he can’t go outside and I think this makes him very frustrated. We also have 2 young children which he swipes at and bites at any given opportunity" They have tried a variety of things, a feliway plug in, bigger cat tree, lots of toys, more hiding spaces to sleep but he’s still very frustrated.
Cookie needs a new home with access to going outside and no children, he can be easily startled and finds the speed of young children and their unpredictability unsettling.
His owners love Cookie and this hasn’t been an easy decision for them but ultimately they know it’s the better for him to be in a new home.
They are happy to have Cookie stay with them whilst a more suitable home is found.
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.
