New Arrival Bamboo is a friendly ginger male cat approx 3 old. Bamboo has come in from a Fruit farm in Kent where our rescue team have been neutering a colony of around 40 cats. We are rehoming most of the cats and a few are being neutered and returned as the farm like to have cats around to carry out mousing duties.
Bamboo arrived with a cut to his foot which required treatment and stitching and an eye infection which is being treated with eye drops. Our vets have also neutered and microchipped.
Bamboo is seeking a new home with a garden. He is not particularly close to any other cats from this group and can be rehomed as an only cat.
A home with a garden and cat flap is sought. As Bamboo has been used to a rural home with lots of space to roam we are seeking a new home with a reasonable size garden or a home surrounded by lots of other gardens for Bamboo to explore.
UPDATE 9TH APRIL: GOOD NEWS BAMBOO IS GOING TO A NEW HOME! - With his friends Taylor and Inky!!
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.
