Find out more about how cat adoption works
We always have cats looking for caring lifetime homes, find out who can re-home a cat and the process involved in bringing a new furry friend into your life.
Who can re-home from us?
Anyone can adopt/re-home a kitten or cat from us – what’s important is matching you, and your family, with the right animal, which will be based on their needs, and yours.
We hold regular homing days, details are usually on this website or our Facebook page. Alternatively, if you see a cat or kitten your like in our Facebook Cats & Kittens looking for lifetimes homes album, please contact us and we can arrange a visit for you.
Re-homing a cat
In some cases the cats in our care are still getting used to human company and may need someone who will be patient with them. Others may need to be kept indoors – this may mean that they’d be ideal for a family with no outside space.
Some may come from a background that means they’re not suitable for homing to families with small children, or with other pets. The welfare and wellbeing of both the cats’ and adopters is our priority, so please do not be offended if we say no to you if we feel a particular cat is not a good match for you.
Be patient, we do our best to match the right cat to you and it can be heart breaking for everyone involved if an adoption does not work out.
Once you and your pet have found each other, we’ll help you get ready to welcome them into your family.
We’ll discuss with you any specific needs that your cat has, and suggest any adjustments to your house, garden or lifestyle that might be needed to help you and your cat settle into a safe, secure and happy life together.
Introducing a new cat to your home will be exciting, rewarding and at times, challenging. It may take quite a while for your new cat to settle into life with you, but don’t worry, if you do encounter some tricky bits with your new cat, you’re not alone – we’re here to support you.
