Cats for homing

Here's a select few of the cats in our care to give you an idea of the very special souls we have waiting for new homes!

We are home to over 150 cats at any one time so when you come to visit we will discuss your situation before introducing you to cats who may be suitable. We believe every cat is an individual and making them happy is our number priority, even if it means waiting a while for the right home to come along!

We'd love to let people wander round and pick cats but with so many ages, needs, backgrounds, personalities and temperaments to get to know we have found that matching cats to their new homes and vice versa is the safest way to ensure homes are forever!

Many of the cats in our care will have had two, three, four or more homes in their lifetime already so finding the right home is extra important to us and our feline friends.

If you would like to make an appointment to meet our cats please leave a message on 01953 718529, email felinecarecats [at] gmail [dot] com or ring 07926 540294.

Due to time constraints we're not able to keep our website as up to date as we would like so be aware that cats seen here may already be reserved or rehomed.

Mummy & Tigger

6 & 5 years
Mummy & son!


Mummy and Tigger used to work as pest controllers on a local industrial estate but they have always been used to the finer things in life as staff on site adored them. 

Both cats love a fuss but Mummy especially can be a bit nervous and isn't so keen on meeting new people. They are happy living with us and we plan to release them to live on site to live with us long term but as they are growing in confidence it seems fair to give them the chance of finding a new home. 

They love cuddling up and we'd love to see them have the chance to snuggle on a sofa on a cold winters evening after a hard days lounging and mousing around outside! 

Ernie

15+ years
Female

We know Ernie is an unusual name for such a pretty old princess but when she was little the humans in her life thought she was a boy! 

She's not quite ready for a new home yet as she's waiting for some dental work but it would be lovely to have a new home waiting for her when she's ready. 

Ernie has worked as a pest controller for years but at her time of life she was no longer safe. She's recently gone deaf so she was no longer able to hear visiting dogs arrive and had a few near misses with unfriendly hounds. 

Ernie absolutely loves a fuss so we're sure she will make a lovely companion. As she's been used to living outdoors she will need access to a safe garden as she might go stir crazy as an indoor only pussy cat. 

Ernie experiences with children are likely to be minimal so we suspect she would prefer an adult only home. 

We're confident that if you meet her, you will fall in love! 

Ollie & Amber

2½ years
Male & female


This gorgeous pair are so special to know and really need a very special home, together.

Ollie has Cerebellar Hypoplasia which in his case means he has some limited mobility and can fall over or bump into things. Some people refer to CH cats as 'wobbly cats' because of their style of walking. 

Ollie only has it quite mildly and is able to jump onto furniture and climb stairs, etc.

Because of his issues with mobility he needs to have an indoor home or access to a well-pet proofed garden. His sister would love outdoor time so that would be their dream come true! 

Tia

3½ years
Female

A beautiful girl with heaps of personality. First she can be shy but she loves a fuss and we are happy to consider her going as an only cat or with a suitable friend but she can be a bit bossy at meal times.

Tia isn’t used to living in a home environment so will need some time to settle in and get used to her new routine. She loves a cuddle and is a favourite among volunteers here at Feline Care.

Princess Henrietta

13 years
Female

Once a Feline Care cat, always a Feline Care cat! Princess Henrietta, known as Hettie, is back with us after finding her forever home and very sadly her owner having to move to sheltered accommodation. 

Its easy to forget that she is 13 years old and mistake her for a youngster as she is full of energy and character. 

Hettie has a long and amazing history, she'll probably tell you one day. She has no front claws due to them been removed in her youth in California, USA, which makes her slightly wary as she has lost her first line of defence and as is common, she uses teeth when she feels threatened.

When Hettie first comes across something or someone it can take her a little while to gain her confidence but once she has she is very affectionate and loves a fuss. 

Because Hettie can use door handles she will need to be either be locked in during her (longer than usual) settling in period, at which point she will probably be settled enough to not bother trying to get out, or live somewhere with round door knobs as she can't yet open them!

However the person taking her will need to be aware that she will always be able to get where she wants and for this reason we would like a secure indoor home or a very, very safe outdoor space for her.

She would like to be only cat so she can have all the fuss and because she can be a bully to other cats!

Veronica Domino

2 years
Female

Veronica is a lively youngster who would love a home with another cat (or small group!) to explore and bond with. A young male or female who has a proven record of getting on with other cats would be suitable.

We ask that you live away from any dangerous roads as she is full of energy and likely to explore. 

She can be nervous when you first meet her but is very friendly and easily won over by treats.

Veronica has never lived in a normal household environment before so her new owner needs to be patient and have the time to spend helping her get settled in to home life and routine. 

Knuckles

11 years
Male

Knuckles spent a whole month waiting in a vets for his owner to come forward as his microchip details were not kept up to date. He is so lovely that they couldn't believe no one was missing him! 

Knuckles is a big hunk of a cat with plenty of love to give, a proper gentle giant!

He doesn't mind other cats but is easily bullied because he doesn't stick up for himself. 

Come and have a knuckles cuddle even if you can't adopt him! 

UPDATE: Knuckles was too lovely to wait here too long and has found himself a new home already! 

Harley

2 years
Female

Beautiful Harley is a very friendly chatty girl, who loves exercise and running on her car wheel at the sanctuary. Now we don’t expect her new owners to have a cat wheel but we would love for her to go somewhere with safe outdoor space so she can continue running around.  

It would be brilliant if Harley could find a home with another cat, a young male who gets on well with other cats would be ideal. 

Although she is a clean girl she will also need regular brushing to avoid any knots especially around her tail area as she has long fur. 

Harley a slightly unconventional history so she may need time to get used to her new surroundings but she is always up for a cuddle and am sure she will settle in nicely.

UPDATE: Harley has now been reserved along with her new friend Freddy! 

Savvy

2½ years
Female

Our beautful Savvy. You may of seen Savvy on our facebook page she has had a rough ride so far after a number of unsuccessful homes after a car accident that meant she lost her tail. 

Her accident also means she suffers with some degree of incontinence although we can say this has improved somewhat over the last few months and it is possible it will improve further and she still attempts to use her tray as normal but does leave spotting. 

Savvy is otherwise the perfect cat who is affectionate and playful and likes lots of attention and going outside. She does not get on with other cats at all so would need to be the only cat in the household. 

We would be happy to chat about Savvy’s accommodation as long as its warm and she gets loads of daily attention and outside time with her family as despite our best efforts she gets lonely in her room at the cattery. 

Please give us a call if you are interested in Savvy for a chat we won’t give up till we have found the home that is absolutely perfect for her since she has been through so much already.

Bubbles

14+ months
Male

Bubbles has been a very special boy for us here. He arrived with huge behavioural issues and he was a serious health and safety problem due to his unpredictable aggression. 

We looked for help and safe solutions for him for weeks and after the weeks became months he was lucky enough to be offered a foster home. In a calmer and quieter environment his behaviour could be monitored and managed better and we were delighted when Lucy Bingley, Clinical Animal Behaviourist, offered Bubbles her services http://www.petbehaviourhelp.co.uk/

Now Bubbles has finally been deemed safe and ready to move on to his forever home his foster mummy, Wendy, has this to say about him:

"Bubbles has been with us for just over two months. We have taken things very slowly with him and have acted on ongoing advice from Lucy Bingley.

"At first, interactions with this lovely boy were kept short, so a few minutes play session with a rod toy fulfilled his hunting and play needs without exciting him too much. We took no chances on our safety and wore protective gear from head to toe which gave the neighbours much amusement, but you can't be too careful!

"As time went on playtimes and time spent just being with Bubbles increased and the protective layers of clothing decreased. We now wear normal clothes around him and spend time just 'hanging out' with him.

"He is generally happy to be picked up for a cuddle but we only do this when he is very relaxed and approaches us.

"Bubbles has shown us no aggression since he has been here but can get carried away when excited, such as jumping on feet etc. We found that if we kept our movements slow or just stood still and ignored him, he quickly settled down again.

"This beautiful energetic boy has much love to give but needs to be respected and allowed to dictate when he wants to be handled.

"He needs a calm, knowledgeable home with no other pets or children. It must be with someone willing to invest time playing with Bubbles and be committed to providing a stimulating environment as he has bundles of energy and is great fun to be with.

"Ideally his forever home will have safe, outdoor access, a countryside home would be ideal."
