Pumpkin is a friendly 8 month old female cat. She has been handed in for homing 3 weeks ago because she was unwell. Pumpkin had suffered with diarrhoea since her owners had her and they could no longer cope with her.  Our vets have treated Pumpkin and she is currently eating a hypoallergenic diet which is helping, she may need to stay on this food long term.

Pumpkin is due to be neutered before she is rehomed and her new owner will need to continue with her special diet. CHAT will continue to provide veterinary care for Pumpkins digestive issues for as long as needed via our two London veterinary clinics. 

UPDATE 7th May: Pumpkin is continuing to make good progress but is still on treatment and not yet ready to leave us. Further updates to follow.

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.
