Adopt via our Direct Homing Scheme

Where we're not able to take in a cat that needs a new home, we try to help via our Direct Homing Scheme. This is referred to as a 'private adoption' as it is up to the potential adopter to liaise directly with the current carer to decide if the cat is suited to its possible new home. Equally, it is up to the current carer to decide whether the potential adopter will provide a good home, properly care for the cat, and keep the cat indoors in its new home for at least six weeks. The current carer continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place.

We feature the cat on our website and give as much information as we can - but we make no claim to accurate knowledge of the cat, its health, vaccination status, whether it is neutered, micro-chipped, etc.

Cats featured will stay on the site until we hear/establish that they have been rehomed or other arrangements made. We will remove the contact details but leave on the 'success stories' to show how the 'direct scheme' achieves results. If we find the contact number is invalid or doesn't take messages, ie, no-one could get in touch, we will promptly remove the entry.

There are no adoption fees for this - the Direct Homing Scheme - but either party may want to make a donation to the branch which is much appreciated. We ask that the carer ensures they have the full name, address and contact details of the adopter so they can check whether all is going well post-adoption, and this also enables Cats Protection to offer the adopter 4-weeks Petplan insurance, a 'direct cat care leaflet' and a listing of local vets.

The availability of the cat/s currently featured is checked and validated regularly, but cats or kittens featured may or may not still be available as time elapses.


RITZY & RAKELLE
(Uploaded 19.2.18)
Feline Friends Forever
    
RAKELLE and RITZY have been together for nine years and, sadly, they recently lost their carer. 
Yve is trying to find them a home together where they can feel loved and secure once more.
Read what she has to say about these inseparable felines below:
"Rakelle is about 12 years old and she is a black and white short haired cat. She is very affectionate and loves to be  stroked and petted. She likes to be around people and craves a lot of attention. She will come to you when called for more stroking and affection. 

Ritzy is about 11 years old and she is a long haired black and white tuxedo cat.  She's a little madam. She is a little bit more reserved (sometimes) and likes to take her time to get to know someone. She will set the pace of the friendship and she knows her own mind. She will let you know when she wants to be stroked and petted. If you call to her she will come, if she feels like it.

They are both spayed and enjoy being outdoors but spend most of their time indoors these days. 
Both cats love each other very much and are very affectionate towards each other.”
If you think you could give BOTH these ladies the love and care they need, then please call 
Yve Edwards on 07729 115249 for more details, or to arrange a visit (in the Handsworth area)

TABBY
(Uploaded 07.2.18)
Sweet Tabby seeks loving, caring home
 
Tabby's carer is unable to spend as much time with her as she would like and is seeking a loving, caring home for her.  
Read what Samantha has to say about this charming little kitty below:
"Tabby is a 9-year old female.  She is playful, very affectionate and good with children.  Unfortunately I am unable to devote as much time to her as she deserves and she is not too keen on being left alone. She has been neutered and her vaccinations are up to date. She can also take some of her personal possessions to her new home."
If you think you could give Tabby a loving home and would like more details and an opportunity to meet her (in the Shard End area) then, please contact Samantha on her mobile: 07941 874920 
  BOBTAIL 
(Uploaded 07.2.18)
Tortoiseshell 'Bobtail' is looking for a home of her own  
    
Kind-hearted Ann has been taking care of this 'affectionate and friendly' stray, and has named her ‘Bobtail’.  However, she feels it's now time to
find her a loving home/family of her own. 
Read what Ann has to say about beautiful 'Bobtail' below: 
"BOBTAIL is affectionate and friendly and would make a lovely pet.  Although she lives outside, we provided her with a litter tray in the greenhouse when the weather was bad and she did use it so she’s potty- trained.   She doesn’t seem to like dogs but other cats don’t seem to worry her. She’s very confident but our cat does not like her at all. I think she likes to be the boss so she may be better off in a household with no other cats.  She has a happy disposition and I’m sure she would be fine with children.  She has never tried to bite or scratch us.  Bobtail is spayed and in good general health. However she has been diagnosed with a dietary condition which is controllable with specific pet food."

If ‘Bobtail’ has captured your heart and you would like more details and an opportunity to meet her (in the Great Barr area)
please contact Mrs Bolton on her mobile: 07428 225739 or her email: ab2310@blueyonder.co.uk
