When we are not able to take in a cat that needs a new home, we try to help via our Direct Homing Service. This is referred to as a “private adoption” as it is up to the adopter to liase directly with the current carer to decide if the cat is suited to its potential new home. Equally it is up to the current carer to decide whether the potential adopter will provide a good home and properly care for the cat and keep it indoors in its new home for a minimum of three weeks. We feature the cat on our website and give brief details but make no claim to accurate knowledge of the cat, it’s health, vaccination status and whether it is neutered or microchipped etc. The current carer continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place. There are no adoption fees for this, but either party may want to make a donation to the branch which is much appreciated."

Sandy is about 20 years old and is needing a new forever home as his owner has had to move into rest home accommodation at short notice. He has been relocated from Norwich and is staying with me as the only relative who doesn't already have a cat. Unfortunately we are not in a position to keep Sandy as we have a busy family home and my husband is not keen on cats.

Sandy is a placid cat. He is very low maintenance. He likes to sleep a lot. He eats well but not excessively. He uses the litter tray without problems. He doesn't jump. He likes lots of strokes but hasn't really wanted lap cuddles. He purrs a lot and has not shown any aggression. He appears comfortable with children even though he has lived his life in a quiet household. He is the largest cat I have ever met, but not at all overweight. He appears in good health apart from some haziness to the right eye. I think he would be best suited to a quieter household with outdoor access where he can live out he days in peace and quiet and sleep undisturbed. My mobile number is 07989 536892, enquiries welcome
