Olive has a very sad story. We were called to collect a stray cat that had been left in a garden after the occupant of the house passed away.  She was very scared and we had to trap her. We scanned her to check for a microchip and found one, we called her registered owner who told us that when they got a dog 3 years ago Olive left home and obviously they couldn't have her back.  Olive is 13 years old, her original owner told us that Olive was a friendly cat with them, she is currently very shy but has spent three years living in a garden, she will need an experienced caring quiet new home who will give her time to gain trust with people. 

Update 28th April: Olive is coming out of her shell now, she is loving and enjoys having a fuss made of her but still a bit shy.

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.
