Before we rehome a cat or kitten we will arrange to come and see you in your home, not to judge you or your home but simply to discuss with you all the costs and responsibility involved in adopting a cat or kitten. We will also need to take into account other pets, children, your location and what sort of cat you are looking for. It may sound a bit intimidating but all our homecheckers are friendly and informative and it is more than likely you will end up swapping cat stories!
Having survived the homecheck you will then be invited to view some likely candidates at a fosterer's home. If you decide the cat isn't right for you, don't worry, just say so (within 3 days please) and we will do our best to find you the right one. However, if you like the cat and (s)he likes you and you have all the equipment (litter tray, cat carrier etc) you can take the cat immediately. We do however ask for a suggested donation of £50 per cat/kitten payable to the fosterer when you take home your kitty. Unfortunately we have had a few bounced cheques recently so we would appreciate donations by cash! Please view our Donations page to find out what the donation is for.
All our cats are neutered and microchipped, or will have a chip provided for your vet to implant, and some have also had their vaccinations. Unfortunately, although we would like to, as a small charity we cannot afford to vaccinate our cats and kittens - we home so many that our annual vaccination bill would be around £30,000! Very few of our rescue cats are already vaccinated; if they are, it will be stated on their description.
We strongly recommend you vaccinate your cat, not only with the basic jab for flu and panleukopenia, but also with the jab for FeLV (feline leukaemia virus). A primary course of vaccinations consists of 2 jabs, 3 weeks apart; after a further week the cat is fully immune. We offer discounted vaccinations at our partner veterinary surgeries within the Bristol and Weston areas, and will provide you with a discount form when you adopt your cat.
When you adopt one of our rescue cats, even if you are an experienced cat owner, we recommend you read the following Cat Chat advice pages:
and http://www.catchat.org/hierarchies.html if you have other pets.
Helps you get inside the head of your new feline friend and ease the transition to its new forever home!
We don't have a rescue centre as such but foster in our own homes throughout the Bristol area, therefore visits are by prior arrangement - but we're very flexible and open to visits pretty much anytime!
We get lots of requests for work experience but unfortunately as we don't have a central rescue but foster in our own homes, we're unable to offer this..sorry...
BEING HOMECHECKED - A cat being homechecked means that someone has expressed an interest in that cat and wishes to adopt, pending a successful homecheck.
We operate a strict first come, first served system and no-one is allowed to view cats without first being homechecked, nor will we let people see a cat that is being homechecked for somebody else.
Of course, sometimes the homecheck will fail, or, on meeting the cat, people find it's not quite right for them so the cat then becomes re-available - we update this site at least once a day so please keep looking if there is a specific cat that you are interested in.
We always have cats on our waiting list to come in; we also have cats waiting in our sister rescue centres in Wales so if there isn't one that appeals to you please keep looking as the situation changes almost daily.
PLEASE DON'T FORGET OUR OLDER CATS WHO ARE CONSTANTLY OVERLOOKED - THEY MIGHT NOT BE AS CUTE AS A FLUFFY KITTEN BUT THEY ARE LOVING AND GENTLE AND SO DESERVE WONDERFUL HOMES IN WHICH TO SEE OUT THEIR RETIREMENT YEARS.
THEY DON'T ASK MUCH - A WARM LAP, SOME NICE FOOD AND A RUB BEHIND THE EARS - COULDN'T YOU SQUEEZE JUST ONE MORE IN??
PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT OUR GOLDEN OLDIES ON THE 'SENIOR KITTIZENS' PAGE.
No suggested adoption fee for our Old Age Pusscats but any donations are very welcome as they've often had dentals and other expensive treatments.

And finally to the cats! When you adopt from us, did you know that you are helping TWO (or more) cats? By rescuing, you free up that foster place for another cat in need.
Ebony is 14-15 years old; he was around 6 when he was taken in as a stray by his elderly owner. He died a few months ago and his very elderly mother was looking after Ebony; but recently she was taken ill herself, so he was left in a house on his own for a few weeks, with another relative going in to feed him.
He is a really sweet, gentle, handsome boy who is no trouble. He may have had a run in with a car at some point in his early life, as he only has half a tail, and his pelvis seems a bit weak, giving him a 'low slung' kind of walk which puts his fosterer in mind of Bagheera, the panther in the Disney film of Jungle Book! But he won't be leaping around and would need to be helped on and off a bed or sofa.
Ebony purrs for ages when he is given attention; loves ear rubs; is happy to be picked up; and has lovely thick, soft fur. In fact, he is really cuddly for an elderly cat (they can get slightly bony with age, like humans!) and, once he has settled, will love snuggling on your lap for as long as he can.
He was diagnosed with epilepsy some years ago, but this is now well-controlled with one table a day, which can be put in his food. He hasn't had a fit for 6 months.
We are looking for a special person to love and care for Ebony for his twilight years. He only ever went outdoors to toilet, so will be very happy as an indoor cat (he uses his litter tray immaculately!).
Gemma is a very friendly, chatty, 11-year-old tortoiseshell with a beautiful black splodge on her white nose. She loves you to sit with her and give her all your attention, and she enjoys swiping and pouncing on a dangling catnip toy (as long as it’s not too scary!).
Gizmo, 10, is Gemma’s son. He’s a gentle ginger giant who loves nothing better than a head rub and a tummy tickle. He had a difficult start to life, so he’s very shy and hides away a lot. He needs a patient and loving owner(s) who will help to love him out of his shell.
Gemma and Gizmo are neutered, chipped and have had their first vaccinations. Ideally, they would like to be homed together, but wherever they go, it must be quiet, without children or dogs. Their previous owners not only had their own children but ran a child minding business and both cats found this environment very stressful.
Felix's owner is reluctantly parting with him due to a house move. He is 11 years old, and although he's not a lap cat, he loves being around people: he will have a little chat with you and is very purry. He is also used to dogs and still has a playful side - his favourite game is chasing a piece of string or wool! He would suit an adult home or one with older children.
Felix has had a bowel condition in the past and has recently had a recurrence of the problem and is on daily medication (Prednisilone). However, as a much loved puss, he is insured and the insurance can be transferred to a new owner.
This is 10-year-old Jasmine who had to move out of her home as she didn’t get on with the family puppy. She can be a little shy so she would be best suited to a quiet home where she can get to know her new family in her own time. She may never be a lap cat but she is very chatty, loves being around people and enjoys nothing more than cuddling up on the bed; once she is settled, she will purr and paddle away when stroked.
Her foster mum would love to keep her but feels she is best suited to being an outdoor cat as her hunting skills are wasted on string and fabric mice! Despite her age, once she sees a ribbon, she is like a kitten again and will play at any opportunity.
Jasmine is microchipped, neutered and fully vaccinated. She has recently had blood tests - results of which have come back fine - and a dental procedure, so a bit of an MOT! What the vet did mention is that she could do with losing a bit of weight!
This beautiful tortie girl is 10 years old and is in need of a new home as her owner had to move and was unable to take Tigs with her.
Tigs can be quite timid at first but once she feels relaxed, she's very affectionate and quite chatty. As she is used to a quiet life, she would be best suited to a home with no children or other pets.
9-year-old Colin's owners have made the very hard decision to put her up for rehoming as she's unhappy living with two small children. She is therefore looking for a new, calmer home where she can be the centre of attention once more.
Colin is very friendly and enjoys being stroked, with lots of head/ear rubs. She's not keen on being picked up and is only an occasional lap cat, but goes all silly and 'inside out and upside down' when she's fussed on the bed - her favourite spot! She spends most of her time upstairs these days, to avoid the children, so would love to have a whole house to herself again. She would also prefer to be an only cat.
Swindon - home from home.
Pickle is 8 years old and is neutered, chipped and vaccinated. She was one of four pub cats who needed rehoming when their owners took over a new pub which didn't allow pets. She looks like she's done well on pub food and could do with losing a bit of weight in her new home. She only ever went out on a balcony before so would be fine as an indoor cat - although exercise should be encouraged, along with the diet!
Pickle is a shy girl but very loving and smoochy once she knows you, and loves a snuggle on the sofa. She's quiet and placid and fine with other cats, but wouldn't be suitable for young children as she's a typical tortie and can tell you when she's had enough.
Unfortunately, Juno is in need of a new home as she is not getting on with her sister anymore and the vet has recommended that they be split up.
Juno is 7 years old and is a super-friendly girl who likes lots of attention. She likes to crawl under the bedclothes with her owner at night and wakes her up in the morning by tapping her face! As she doesn't 'do' sharing, Juno is looking for a new home where she can be the only pet.
Juno has always had the best possible care and is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and insured. Her next booster isn't due until October 2014 and her insurance can be transferred to a new owner.
Bedminster - home from home.
7-year-old Mitzy is in need of a new home as she doesn't like living with a 1-year-old child and has occasionally scratched her. She would like a home with a garden as she loves to go outside, although she doesn't go very far.
Mitzy has lovely big eyes that everyone comments on when they first meet her. With new people, she likes to approach when she's ready, but once you have her trust, she'll sit on your lap, give you head butts, and lick your face and neck. Because her owner's previous landlord attacked her, she's very wary around male voices but she's not aggressive and, once she knows that she won't be hurt or chased, she'll relax and come over to you. When she's settled, she's a vocal cat who likes to have a conversation with you!
Poppy used to live with her sister but her elderly owner had a major op and his Consultant said he couldn't go home from hospital until the cats were removed from the house. A relative took the sister and we had hours in which to find poor Poppy a foster space or she would have been put to sleep.
Poppy is 6 years old and quite big for a girl, though not overweight. She's friendly, affectionate and gentle, and likes to have a chat. She settled into her foster home straightaway and made herself completely at home - so should very easily adapt to her new family.
The owner of these 7-year-old brothers is no longer able to care for them due to ill health so is reluctantly putting them up for rehoming. They are gentle, affectionate boys who also get on well with other cats.
Jinx has beautiful blue eyes but, unfortunately, the camera flash turns them red - so you'll just have to take our word for it! He has a heart murmur (very common in cats) which does not require medication.
Toby and Jinx get on very well and would make a lovely pair, although they could be homed separately.
Chocolate turned up as a stray but, as is the way with cats, picked himself what he thought was a lovely new home! He was being cared for by a Good Samaritan but unfortunately her housemate was severely allergic to cats so he is now in foster care with us.
Chocolate has been neutered, chipped, blood tested (is negative for FIV/FeLV) and had three teeth removed. The vet said that his eyes, colouring and vocal nature suggest that he is part-oriental.
Chocolate is probably 3-4 years old and loves to play. When he was first rescued, he was quite timid and wary of strangers but his confidence has come on in leaps and bounds and he has now become very sociable. He rolls over to be stroked, loves being affectionate and has a very endearing range of miaows. He is also one of those cats who never misses a lap opportunity - kneel down on the floor and he will be on your lap, snuggling up for a cuddle!
Dylan is 3-4 years old and a big lad, but very friendly, loving and gentle. When he first came to us, it looked like he'd had an untreated eye infection and had very limited sight. His owners just left him in the garden to fend for himself so a neighbour rescued him and took him to the vet.
We thought that the damage to Dylan's eyes was going to be permanent but, to our delight, he's responded well to treatment and has no problem with his sight now. He's also tested negative for FIV/FeLV - so he's fit and healthy and longing for a new caring owner who's not going to shut him out all the time.
Frankie was a pub cat but his owners have now taken over another pub which won't allow pets. He's 2 years old and a lovely, gentle boy who's good with other cats. He can be a little shy to begin with but is very sweet and loving when he knows you - which doesn't take long!
Unfortunately, Alfie's owner needs to rehome him as soon as possible as his daughter is allergic to cats.
Alfie likes the outdoors and has quite an independent streak, but also loves affection and to snuggle up on the sofa. He has always been an only cat so would probably prefer to stay that way, and he would be more suited to an adult home or one with older children. He is 3 years old, neutered, microchipped and up to date with his vaccinations.
Hanham - home from home.
Harry's elderly owner had to go into sheltered accommodation due to ill health, and was unable to take him with her. He is 2 years old and is neutered, chipped and vaccinated.
Harry is a very sweet, affectionate and gentle lap cat, although he can be a little shy at first. As he was used to a quiet home, he wouldn't be suitable for young children, and would probably prefer to be an only cat in his new home.
Shady is a one-year-old Native Egyptian Mau who was found sick on the streets of Cairo by a student at the University who could not afford to keep him so she handed him to the Egyptian Mau Rescue Organisation (EMRO). They treated his illness and placed him up for adoption. He found a home very quickly in Germany but just before he was due to fly, the adopter pulled out.
The Native Egyptian Mau is one of the oldest known descendants of the domesticated cat and one of only a few naturally-occurring, small, spotted cats in the world. However in their homeland they are currently unrecognized, routinely poisoned, and often suffer from cruelty and endemic feline diseases. Despite this and even as ferals, they commonly retain a strong interest in people and when brought into the home make particularly intelligent, loving and playful companions. They expect to be a part of the family and when bonded become devoted and extremely loyal.
Shady has the classic Native Egyptian Mau looks and markings (classed as Lybica & White) with long back legs, long face and big ears although it is suspected he may have a bit of Arabian Mau in him too! He is sweet, playful and interactive and will bond very closely to his family. He is presently an indoor cat. He is not too keen on his feline companions at the EMRO shelter so he might be better as the only cat, at least initially, but bear in mind the shelter is often necessarily full and will be a stressful place to all cats.
Shady is neutered and has all his vaccinations, as you would expect for a cat entering the UK under the pet passport scheme. He is due into the UK on 23rd December and has been sponsored by private donations. He will be brought to a foster home near Stroud.
4-year-old Oreo needs a new, quieter, adult home as she was not coping with living with a 3-year-old and a new baby in the family.
She is still quite kittenish, loves to chase after string, and will even play fetch! Fetch was her favourite game as a kitten - finding cotton buds and bringing them back to her owners to throw for her again!
Before the arrival of the children, Oreo was a delightful cat, very loving and gentle, and enjoyed a lap in the evenings. She would love to be back in an adult home again where she could feel comfortable and relaxed and have all the attention herself. She would need to be an only cat in her new home as she is not used to being around other pets and really doesn't like dogs.
Oreo is spayed and up to date with her vaccinations.
Sally came to us as a stray. She's only about a year old and is a delightful, friendly little girl who loves fuss and cuddles. She seems fine with other cats too so should fit into any home.
This beautiful grey girl is a stray who has been rescued and has just had a full MOT. She's in good health, FIV/FeLV negative and has now had her 1st part of the Triple vaccine. She's also been flea treated and wormed. The vet estimates she is around 3 years old, and as she has been in the area for 6 months and shown no signs of pregnancy or calling, she's probably neutered.
Fife is a sweet, placid and good natured cat. She is affectionate and loves to play and chase pieces of string. However, she doesn't like other cats and would prefer a family to call her own.
Avonmouth - home from home. BEING HOMECHECKED
Young black beauty Lilly loves her humans and is OK with dogs, but isn't keen on other cats.
Sweet, tiny ball of fluff, only about a year old, who turned up as a stray in someone's garden and was handed in to the vet. She found herself a lovely new home earlier this year but unfortunately her new owners are moving abroad and need to rehome her.
Saffy must have previously been a pet as she's very friendly and affectionate. However, although she loves her humans, she's definitely not keen on other cats so will need to be an only puss in her new home.
Mia is about 2 years old and a total lovebug who wants lots of attention and cuddles. She came to us as a mum but sadly lost all her kittens as she turned out to be a flu carrier. She would therefore be best as an only cat in her new home, or could live with a fully vaccinated cat as she lived happily with two other cats in her previous home.
Lucy is very loving and very much a lap cat. She is only about 8 months old but has already had kittens; she is now spayed and chipped, ready to begin her new life. She doesn't like other animals much so would be better as an only cat in her new home.
Jim and Jenny are brother and sister and are just over a year old. They are very friendly but a bit shy so need a reasonably quiet new home.
Jim is the more confident and is happy to be picked up. He is a lovely fluffy boy, with an impressive set of whiskers! Jenny has beautiful markings but is not quite so sure about being picked up - although she's getting there.
Jim and Jenny are very good together, and with other cats, but could be homed separately or with another cat. Living with another friendly, more confident cat would definitely help them along.
Diva is a 5-year-old pedigree Persian and is spayed, chipped and vaccinated. She's already had three homes in her short life: her first two elderly owners died and she was rehomed by us earlier this year. All was well until the vet decided she was overweight and put her on a dried food only diet. Constipation ensued and she stopped using her litter tray as she associated it with pain. She was then prescribed pouches, which gave her diarrhoea, and her owner at that point decided she couldn't cope so gave her back to us.
3-year-old Daisy had two owners before she came to us and then was unsuccessfully homed twice to adopters who weren't prepared to give her a chance and allow her to settle in at her own pace. She had been an indoor cat previously and had a very sheltered life, so is easily traumatised when moved to a new environment. Her foster mum didn't want to upset her further so decided to keep her, but although she's calmed down a lot, she isn't happy living with other cats. We would therefore like to give Daisy another chance at finding the right home. She's keen to explore the outside world now but will need a home with a secure garden to keep her safe.
Daisy is neutered, chipped and vaccinated. She can be quite chatty and loves to sit on her foster mum's lap or snuggle up for cuddles. She likes being stroked and is very purry and gentle when calm but doesn't like being startled so would need to be in an adult home or one with calm, cat-savvy older children. She will need time and space to settle in - and owners who can appreciate a bit of cattitude!
Rosie was handed into a vet as a stray and no-one has come forward to claim her. She's a super-friendly girl, no more than 2 years old, and is vaccinated too.
Cleo and her four kittens were rescued from a garden shed where they were being cared for by kind neighbours. She's about 18 months old and is a lovely friendly girl who enjoys playing, but most of all just loves being with people - she will happily spend all evening on a lap watching television.
Cleo can be shy with new people and would be better with older children as she does not appear used to little ones and is not keen on being picked up and cuddled. She is fine with other cats though so could have a feline friend or two in her new home.
This graceful one-eyed tortie girl is Ariel. She's a calm and well-behaved cat, about 14 months, who loves a bit of a fuss and play. Her favourite games are pouncing on the duvet at bedtime, chasing a piece of string, and running off with elastic hairbands!
She's a little timid with strangers, but she warms up pretty quickly. Once that happens, she shows her friendly nature; she loves people's company and affection but she's not intrusive. She's equally happy sitting on your lap and being stroked, as she is just lying down next to you.
However, Ariel tends to be jumpy. Sudden, perfectly innocent movements can make her run and hide, though she comes back quickly when you call her name. It is getting slightly better, for example, she has now learnt that throwing a piece of string is a part of the game, rather than meant to cause her any harm. The skittishness seems to be mostly to do with people; surprisingly, she isn't really bothered by things such as the hair dryer, fireworks or even drilling.
She would love to be in a patient, loving and quiet home, without young children and other cats, to give her the stress-free environment she needs to open up completely.
Jerry is quite a princess: she can be incredibly loving and all over you, or treat you with disdain if she's not in the mood - that's cats for you! She loves to drink running water so be prepared to be pushed out of the way in the bathroom!
Jerry is 2 years old and is neutered, chipped and up to date with vaccinations. She wouldn't be happy in a home with a dog but previously lived with her brother so could possibly live with other cats.
Warmley - home from home.
Looking pretty chilled but Barbara was very scared when she first arrived as a stray. However, she's now turned into a real cuddle monster!
Her kittens have grown up now and Barbara has been spayed and chipped and has become a kitten herself again. She's only about 2 years old and looking forward to having a home to call her own. She walks with a bit of a limp but the vet has said that it's probably a shortened tendon in her leg causing the problem. It's not painful and needs no treatment.
Alice was a great mum to 6 kittens but is now looking for her own new start in life. She's a friendly young girl who needs a home as an only cat as she doesn't get on with other cats.
This pretty young tabby mum will be ready for her own new home around Christmas time. She is a loving girl who is always looking for attention - especially when she’s hungry! She’s a bit wary of having her tummy rubbed but loves having ear and face rubs.
Tabatha is a kitten at heart and is always looking to play with anything that moves - including her kittens. She is looking forward to being a kitten herself again and to lots of spoiling in her new home. At the moment she's being a protective mum and hissing at her foster mum's cat when he's outside her room, so we don't know what she's normally like with other cats.
Milly is just under a year and Tommy is about 18 months old. They're absolutely gorgeous cats: so friendly and would be great with a family with children. They need to be re-homed together as they're very close.
Milly is a little ball of energy, very affectionate and is happy to please herself playing with her toys. She likes human contact but is not a lap cat.
Tommy, on the other hand, is happy to be on his own but when he wants human attention, he is a lap cat. He sometimes thinks he is the size of his little sister, Milly!
Their foster mum says of this beautiful tabby pair: "They would make anyone happy as they are just so easy and happy to please themselves. I will be very sad to see them go as they have brought a lot of joy already."
A guy on a late night bus spotted a moving blue tub under a lamp post by a pub. He got off the bus to investigate - and found Bella! (Her name was written on the tub.) As it had been the last bus home, he then walked 4 miles, carrying her in the tub - so she was one very lucky girl that night!
These beautiful sisters are about 9 months old, have just been neutered, and are looking for a home together as they're very close. They're very friendly and confident so would be fine living with children.
Hanham BEING HOMECHECKED
Jessie is a beautiful, 8-month-old girl who came to us due to feline overcrowding in her previous owner's flat. She was frightened when she first arrived but now is relaxed and comfortable - just a lovely little companion awaiting her forever home!
Minnie is 5 months old and came in with Jessie (above). She is very sweet, friendly and playful.
Handsome Felix look-alike Steven is a friendly boy who is very affectionate when he gets to know you but is quite timid at first so wouldn't be suitable for a home with young children. He's 7 months old and is neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated.
Jewel and her brother Blue are in need of a new home as they were being bullied by an older cat in the household, and also didn't seem happy living with two young children. However, they settled into their foster home straightaway and are a lively and curious pair who seem remarkably confident - not at all the shy, stressed cats we were expecting.
Jewel and Blue are 9 months old and have been neutered and chipped. They're looking a little ragged at the moment due to a recent flea problem but now they're flea-treated and stress-free, the only way is up for this friendly pair!
These adorable 6-month-old brothers are looking for a home together as they're inseparable - they even pee at the same time in one litter tray!! They like to share their foster mum's bed at night and sleep in the sock drawer during the day time!
Bonnie and her brother Clyde are 6 months old and look very similar, although Clyde has a little more brown on his head and a bit of a kink in his tail.
They are both rather shy but once they know you, will purr for England when stroked! Bonnie is the more confident of the two, while Clyde is a typical boy who just likes to get on with things and play! They are looking for an adult home - or one with older children - and patient owners to bring out the best in them.
Shadow is only 6 months old and is a very playful boy who really likes his food! He enjoys company and follows you around the house for tickles and cuddles. He lives with his sister Jess but is very bossy with her so would be better as an only cat in his new home.
Shadow is neutered, chipped and vaccinated.
6-month-old Jess is Shadow's sister and is also friendly, affectionate and playful. She is looking forward to having her own home, away from her boisterous brother, although she would probably be fine living with another gentle cat.
Jess is neutered, chipped and vaccinated.
These beautiful, sweet-natured 8-month-old sisters are not coping with living with two young children so are looking for a calmer adult home or one with older children.
Bertie, Barney and Katie are about 4/5 years old and were living on a smallholding, but could not stay there when it was sold. Katie is the boldest and can be stroked when she's eating her favourite biscuits but will shy away at other times. The two boys are more nervous but Bertie (black) is better than Barney (tabby - and very camera shy!), though neither can be stroked.
Barney is okay with other cats but is quite independent so could go on his own, but we would like to home Katie and Bertie as a pair as they're very often together. A stables or smallholding environment would probably suit them best.
The handsome Sable was turfed out of his home when his family turned their attention to a new puppy. He was shut out in the garden then wandered away to get food and shelter. Sable is young - less than a year old - and incredibly friendly and talkative. He has a lovely nature and deserves a special new home. He is neutered and vaccinated.
Dolly is a gentle and loving cat who may take a little while to earn your trust. She enjoys playing and either sitting by you or on your lap; she loves to be brushed and stroked. She has been socialised with other cats and is used to dogs but not children.
Dolly is nearly 3 years of age and is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for worms and fleas.
Belladonna was found by workmen when they were called in to board up a flat after the tenant had left suddenly. She had been in the flat for three weeks prior to being found. Despite her ordeal, she is incredibly friendly, interested in everything and such a sweet young cat. She is probably less than a year old and very pretty. She is spayed and vaccinated.
Millie is a beautiful tortie, 2 years old, with a super-friendly personality. However, she is not too keen on other cats so would be better on her own. She was made homeless after her young owner's death but is now neutered, fully vaccinated and ready for her own special home.
Araminta is one of three cats dumped earlier this year. She is a sweet and friendly girl who is desperate for her special fireside. She gave birth to a litter of kittens while she was dumped but has now been neutered and is ready for a new home.
A naughty, lively boy who needs a couple of companions to keep him in line!Brendan is 18 months' worth of monkey-business!! He is a bold and cheeky boy, loving, but with a tendency to play too roughly so would benefit from an older companion who could show him the error of his ways! Brendan has a beautiful, silky coat, is neutered and full of the joys of youth. He would not be suitable for a home with young children.
Tessie was straying for a number of weeks on a large housing estate before being taken in to a local vet. She is neutered. She is a beautiful cat who needs somewhere to call home, rather than being caged in the veterinary practice, which is stressing her.
Super-friendly trio, 5-6 months old, who can be homed separately. Their mother was a stray who, luckily, was taken in by someone before she gave birth.
Jerry and Jasmine were born at a Cardiff factory unit. The manager did not want them returned to site after neutering so they have come to us for rehoming.
Jerry is still rather timid but, as you see, can be handled and stroked, although he will not come willingly and needs to be picked up first. All that could change if he could have a loving, patient home that would give him the time and attention he needs.
Jerry's sister Jasmine is much more confident and outgoing, and will blossom quickly in a new home. She purrs when handled and is becoming very affectionate, but still has some way to go, so a patient home is a must.
Jerry is very close to his sister so we would like them to go together. They are about 6 months old now and are both neutered and have had their first vaccinations.
