Adopt a cat

Its a very exciting time bringing a new cat home but to them it can be a very scary prospect. Some cats will walk right in as if they have always been there...but others will take a while to adjust. This does not mean there is anything wrong with them and letting them hide will help them settle in quicker. 
Here are some of the CP guides available - They are well worth a read!


Caring for your kitten

Cats living together
 
There are many more essential guides available here

PLEASE NOTE: We have more cats in our care but they are not yet on the website as they are not up to full health. So please give Pat a call and she can advise you of the cats available.
 
Cats can be left without their own homes for many reasons:
  • Some have been abandoned or are stray
  • Others have owners who can no longer care for them
 
Whatever the reason a cat comes into our care, we will always find the best possible home and family for them.  

This involves taking the time to meet and discuss with the prospective new owner their individual situation and carrying out home visits before the cat is re-homed.

(If you feel you could help out with "home visits" or other aspects of homing a cat..please call us! 07716 596212)

We intend to update these pages as often as possible to enable you to view on-line the most up-to-date information on our cats.

Direct Rehoming

As you know, we take in cats that need to be rehomed, place them with our wonderful fosterers to be cared for and loved until they are ready to leave and then find them loving permanent homes. 
But did you know that we also offer an alternative method of rehoming called Direct Rehoming?
If someone calls us, needing to give up their cat(s), but:
a) we are unable to take them because we are full up or
b) the owner would prefer that the cat(s) didn’t come to us because, for instance, they think that the cat(s) could be stressed by being confined to pens
then we can scan our “Waiting to Adopt” list and match the cat(s) needing a new home with a suitable person offering one. We then put the two people in touch with each other and leave the rest to them. 
We will only get involved if asked to do so, for instance, by doing a home visit.
There is no fee as such but we welcome donations.
Do you think you could offer any of them a warm welcome in your home? If so please ring Pat on 07716 596212.

If you would like to offer a home to one of our rescued cats or kittens, please call (& leave a message if you can not get through) Pat 07716 596212 or themurdybird@aol.com Monday-Friday 10-5 or
Stephanie 07759620055 at anytime

We look forward to hearing from you.
