Adopt a cat
We are currently operating a 'Hands Free' homing process.
6/1/21 - We are able to continue rehoming cats during the nationwide lockdown, subject to the below updates and our stringent hands free homing process.
30/12/20 - Swindon will be in Tier 4 with effect from 00:01 on 31/12/20. This will prevent us from re-homing cats into areas in different Tiers. Re-homing within the Tier 4 area is still possible. For those in a different Tier, as allocation to Tiers is continually reviewed by the Government a change in our Tier status will hopefully enable us to re-home to you at a later date - so please keep the enquiries coming in!
6/11/20 - Due to the current temporary restrictions on non-essential travel, where more than one home is on offer, then all other things being equal the home closest to Swindon will be given priority.
6/11/20 - Please note: We have in place extensive procedures that are enabling carefully controlled rehoming without putting people at risk of infection, and without a negative impact on cat welfare. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to adopt a cat at this time but we will continue to ensure that all our cats are matched with potential owners who are able to provide the environment and lifestyle required by each cat’s individual needs.
Please think very carefully before deciding to give a home to a cat or kitten as owning a pet is a long-term commitment.
Whilst we all adore the sight of a cute little ball of fur, kittens require lots of attention and an inquisitive kitten is likely to get into mischief if he/she gets bored whilst you are out - you may return home to find that he/she has caused damage to your furniture or has been climbing your curtains in your absence!
On the other hand, older cats can be quieter and generally more sensible than kittens or young cats. They tend to be used to household life, know the ground rules of living with people and are more content to spend their time watching the world go by. With adult and older cats their characters tend to be more evident allowing you to select a cat that suits your lifestyle. Many will be happy just wandering around the garden and are less inclined to roam around the neighbourhood for long periods of time.
All our cats/kittens available for re-homing are:
- Neutered (applies also to kittens over 5/6 months),
- Fully health-checked,
- Vaccinated, and
- Fully flea and worm treated.
The expense of the above often amounts to approximately £200 per cat plus the cost of day-to-day expenses such as food and litter. However we are only asking an adoption fee of £50 to help cover these costs.
When enquiring about a cat's availablity (using the 'Contact Us About This Cat' button within each cat's listing below) we'd be grateful if you could also let us know which vet you have used most recently for your previous and/or current cat(s).More information
can be found on some of our available cats via the links in the top left sidebar of this page entitled 'Adopt a cat'. If the cat's listing, below, says that there is an additional page of information then you should see a link for that cat in this page's sidebar. If you cannot see a link
it is because you are viewing an old version of this webpage that has been cached locally on your device (PC, tablet, mobile). Your earlier browsing of this webpage will have created that cache and will now be preventing you from seeing the latest version with up-to-date links to the additional information, particularly for those cats that have been added recently. Try Refreshing the webpage - but this may only result in the same webpage being reloaded from the cached file. If so, you need to force your browser to go back to the web server and get the latest version. To do this either:
- do a 'Hard Refresh' and/or 'Clear Cache'. Depending on your device and software there are many different ways of doing this. We recommend that you do a Search on your own device to find out how to do it; it is likely to be within your device Settings, System Preferences or your browser's Options. If that fails then you can do an internet search to find the instructions; or
- use another device, that hasn't previously been used to access our website, to get the latest pages. This can be a quicker, temporary solution.
