Adopt a Cat or Kitten

It is important to us that both you and your adopted cat(s) are happy.
For this reason we have the following straight forward, but important adoption process:

  1. Please check you live in our Catchment Area at the bottom of this page.
  2. Please read and ensure you agree with our Cat Adoption Fee
  3. Please Call Us to discuss on 01243 641409 (Mon-Fri 9-4pm )

All Cats and Kittens are:

  • Neutered / Spayed
  • Part or Fully Vaccinated
  • Microchipped
  • Health and Dental Checked
  • Up-to-date with Flea and Worm Prevention
  • Covered by a 4 week Pet Plan vet insurance from the date you adopt

 

Indoor Cats – As cats can be very independent we believe that they should not only enjoy the comforts of their own home but be able to wander outside if they choose.  Because of this it is quite rare that we have cats that need be rehomed to live indoors only.  Cats that we can consider are either the elderly that may be content with just indoor space or those that may have a medical condition which does not allow them to go outside.  If you are looking for an indoor cat then please read through carefully as we will mention within their write up if they are able to live indoors.

Cats Available for Adoption

The following is a list of some of the cats available for adoption. This is just a selection of the animals we have at The Centre and sometimes we do run out of time to keep the site updated. Please follow the process above to ensure you are not disappointed.

 

Cat of the Month

  • McCarthy

    * Priority Rehoming *

    Children: No
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hello! My name is McCarthy and I am a very handsome 7 year old fluffy black and white boy. I am a very special boy to the staff here as you see I was originally brought here in 2017 as I had living as a stray for 3 years. I didn’t cope well with being penned up then and kept lashing out in frustration, so the staff decided to let me out to live here at The Centre. I was a lot happier then and my behaviour got better, although I would still bite or swipe randomly at times. I decided that I liked living in the staff room most as that was where I could sit on a comfy lap and get myself some love and fusses. As my behaviour was a lot better (although I still liked to show my cheeky, naughty side occasionally) and I seemed to really crave attention the staff decided that I deserved to find myself a home as they felt I would be happier then even more. So I did find myself a home in February this year and I was a good boy and a delight most of the time, but my temperamental side liked to show itself unexpectedly and I did bite and scratch occasionally. Sadly, my owner couldn’t cope with that and back I came. I am such a loving, cuddly boy generally and I love nothing more than sitting on a lap, so I can’t wait to find a new home where I can do that again. But I need a tough new owner who can take some bites and scratches and still love me and not quit on me. Over the years, the staff have realised that I don’t seem to like men so much and so I would be much better suited to a female only household. I cannot live with children of any age due to my naughtiness and I need to be the only pet in the household too. I hope it’s not too long before someone gives me another chance at a forever home. The staff would really love to see me happy in a home finally with my own family.

  • Raynor & Ortaga

    Children: 8+
    Cats: Yes
    Dogs: No
    To be rehomed as a pair

    Hi ya!! That gorgeous petite girl is me Raynor and this is my sister Ortaga, she’s slightly bigger than me. We are both a year and a half and our owner had to give us up as sadly they couldn’t afford to look after us anymore. We are really sweet girls who can be a little wary to start with, especially with meeting new people, it does take us a little while to fully feel comfortable with you and not act shy. Although we do act wary, we do really love strokes and attention from you and will give you cute little meows to get your attention to get some head scratches. We’re still both big kittens at heart as well and absolutely love to play, we love nothing more than batting all our toys around and trashing our pen as we throw our mice and balls all over the place. We can’t wait to get into a new home and for our new owners to play with us loads. We have lived with children before and so could do again but the staff feel due to our shyness initially we would be better suited to slightly older children who will allow us to come to them for strokes and not want to pull us around. If you’re looking for a pretty, friendly, energetic pair of girls, then we are the ones for you!

  • Yara

    * Priority Rehoming *

    Children: No
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hello, my name is Yara and I am a stunning 2 year old black girl. I arrived here at the beginning of July as I had been living as a stray. I’m very scared being here at the moment as it’s all new to me and there’s lots of new noises and sounds that I don’t know, so quite often I’m found hiding in my scratching post as it’s where I feel safest. Having been a stray for possibly quite a while, I am semi feral and I’m very wary of you humans right now. Although I don’t tend to do anything if you just sit in my pen with me, I don’t liked to be stroked currently or for you to get too close to me and if you do try to touch me, I will lash out at you!! Because of this I’m going to need a very patient owner who is prepared for the fact it will take me quite a while to fully settle in and trust you. It would be better if you had experience of dealing with very nervous/feral cats so you know what to expect from me. The staff are hopeful that I will become a friendly girl in the end and be able to trust someone, I just need to get past my nervousness. Please someone take a chance on me and give me the loving home I deserve.

  • Katya

    Children: 14+
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hi im Katya, a beautiful 1 and a half year old black female. I arrived at the centre in may 2020 after I had been abandoned by my owners; when I arrived at the centre it became clear I was heavily pregnant. My kittens have all now gone to there new homes and I did also, however sadly I was returned to the centre in November 2020 as I became very stressed in my new home; you see I was living in a male only household and after a few months it became clear I had a fear of men and I began nipping and scratching them all the time and I didn’t really want them near me or giving me any attention. I also began having a couple of accidents around the home as I was becoming very unsettled. However since I have been back at the centre I have been back to my normal self! I am a very loving girl who enjoys a fuss and attention. I do still occasionally give the odd little nip but I have always done this, its just to let you know that I have had enough. I am ideally looking for a female only household, in a nice quiet home with older or no children and with someone who will respect that sometimes I need my own space. I cant wait to find my forever home soon, I really am a sweet little girl!

  • Bowie1 & Bowie2

    Children: No
    Cats: Yes
    Dogs: No

    To be rehomed as a pair

    * Ferals – Can be rehomed as outdoor cats *

    Hi there, my name is Bowie1 and I am a handsome tabby boy and 5 years old and this is my friend Bowie2 and she is a stunning 1 year old female. I am the one with my head down in the bed. We originally came to The Centre to be neutered as we were strays and then were going to go back to where we had been living, being looked after by a lovely lady. But sadly while we were here, the lady had an accident and couldn’t have us back there. So we are now looking for a new home. We are both ferals and will hiss and spit at you. I am slightly better and when by myself I will let you stroke me, although I’m not too sure if I enjoy it just yet! Bowie2 is not a fan of you humans at all though right now and isn’t very happy to be here. We will be happy to go and live as outdoor cats on a farm or a stables so long as we have somewhere dry and warm to live and someone to put food in our bellies. Or if someone likes a challenge, we can go to live in a home normally, but it will take months probably for us to settle in, so you would have to be prepared for that.

  • Binky

    Children: 12+
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hi there my name is Binky Lou and I am the tiny little 3 year old black and white girl you can see. I arrived here at the centre in November 2020 as sadly I wasn’t getting on with the other cat in the household. I am a very sweet girl who likes a fuss and I will rub all around you for attention; however, although I am a friendly girl I am also quite independent and I like my own space at times. In my previous home I had been kept as a house cat but I am desperate to go outside and explore so I cant wait to find a home with a lovely garden where I can finally go outside. I can be abit shy sometimes at first until I get to know you but then I do come out of my shell! I can be quite jumpy/wary of loud noises therefore I am looking for a nice quiet home with older or no children.

  • Alfeo & Tulia

    Children: 14+
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    To be rehomed as a pair

    Hiya!! My name is Alfeo and I’m an 11 year old tabby and white male, and this is my friend Tulia, she is a 6 year old pale ginger female. We came to The Centre at the beginning of September 2020 as our previous owner was being evicted and couldn’t take us with her. I am a very confident boy and I will strut up to you for some strokes and attention, but my friend Tulia is a little more shy than me. You see, she didn’t have the best start to life so she is a bit wary of humans; She isn’t nasty at all, infact she will purr and head bop you but she’s only just really getting use to being stroked and she isn’t confident enough to come over and say hello to people yet, she waits in her bed for you to slowly approach her. She likes to follow me around though so I try to show her that humans aren’t to be scared of! We are looking for a home together as we love each other very much! We will need new owners who will understand that Tulia will take a little while to settle in and will be patient with her in order for her to really come out of her shell. We are were use to living with 11 other cats in our previous house although I did spray (scent mark) in the home sometimes and I have also done it a few times since being here at the rescue so I think we would be best suited to a home with no other cats so that hopefully I wont feel the need to mark my territory anymore.

  • KF37-10 & KF95-11

    Children: 12+
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No
    To be rehomed as a pair

    Hello, my name is KF37-10 but you can call me Ellie and I am the gorgeous black girl and this is my friend KF95-11 better known as Coco and she’s the stunning tabby girl. I am 10 years old and Coco is 9 years and we were both here as kittens originally in 2010 and 2011 before being adopted but sadly our owner had a change of circumstances and had to return us back here recently. We are a cute pair of girls, I am more reserved than Coco, she is more confident and happily loves having strokes from you whereas I am more skittish and wary. I am really friendly but I just can’t help being a little nervous! If you hold your hand out to me, I will head bump against it and rub on you but then I get a bit scared and back off again. So I just need a patient owner who will help me to see that being petted is ok and I am allowed to enjoy it! We both really love our food, Coco especially, she is always at the front of our pen yelling at the staff that’s she hungry! We can’t wait to find a new home, we need somewhere calm and quiet with no other pets and with older or no children so we can settle in in our own time and feel safe and loved again.

  • Gino

    Children: 12+
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hi there, my name is Gino and I am a very handsome 9 year old tabby and white boy.
    This is my second time here at The Centre, I originally arrived in 2018 as my previous owners moved house and because it was still in the same area I kept wandering back to my old house and wouldn’t settle. I was then rehomed but sadly I was returned in August 2020 as I became very unsettled in my new home as well and I started to urinate around the house. I am the sweetest boy who loves lots of cuddles and attention! I am also most definitely a lap cat, I just love snuggling up with humans. One of my favourite things is to be picked up and cuddled and have my head kissed. I am looking for a quieter home with older or no children where I can relax and feel safe. Although I am so friendly, I am quite a wary boy at times and I can be quite jumpy/easily scared. I do have a medical condition which will be covered under The Centre’s part foster scheme; you see I have a grade 3 heart murmur which at the moment I am doing okay with it and I don’t need any medication for now, however in 6 months time I will need another heart scan and check up as possibly in the future I may need to start on some medication which The Centre will cover the cost of. I can’t wait to find my forever home soon with someone who will give me all the love and attention I deserve.

  • Rev

    Children: No
    Cats: No
    Dogs: No

    Hi everyone, my name is Rev and I’m an 8 year old male. I came to The Centre at the beginning of August as my previous owners had a baby and it made me very defensive and I began to attack them. I am a very sweet boy most of the time and do love a fuss, once I trust you I will get on your lap for a stroke and some attention. But my new owners will need to be ok with my occasional, temperamental side as you see I was rehomed again recently but sadly I was also abit naughty with those people so they brought me back. I hope someone can look past that side of me and love me anyway because I really am a sweet boy and I love to be with people; I would really like to find a forever home. I would be best suited in a quieter home with no children and no other pets so I can settle in easily and in my own time. My previous owners also said I was quite a homely cat so I would be best in a household where someone is around quite often so I have company.
