Catcuddles Sanctuary (The)
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Kent (West), London (East) & London (West)
Kit Kat is a 19 year old female, in our care following the sad loss of her owner. We are seeking a special person willing to offer this dainty pawed, gentle cat a loving retirement home. Kit Kat is not too keen on other pets and therefore needs a home as a solo pet.

It was a Saturday evening in early June that the Catcuddles team received a distressing phone call from Lewisham Police Station.

An elderly cat was in urgent need of refuge after being found in a flat alongside her deceased owner, who was believed to have passed away several days earlier. Finding herself suddenly alone and without food in the flat, it's unimaginable what Kit Kat, must have endured.

An emergency foster carer was quickly sought and a foster place secured and Kit Kat was brought to safety the same night. Frail and extremely hungry, Kit Kat seemed both bewildered and relieved in foster care that first night; timid and gentle from the outset. Her name and age were revealed by microchip records, and she is missing a tail seemingly from an accident or injury earlier in life.

Kit Kat is looking for a calm, settled and loving home where she can spend the remainder of her days in comfort. Her adoptive home will be one who will extend all the kindness and care possible to her, not only because this is what every cat deserves, but because it's what every loving cat owner deserves, too; for our cats to be provided with love, comfort, and security, should the day arise when we can no longer provide these things ourselves.

We have found Kit Kat to be a sweet, friendly girl who enjoys rubbing her head on your hand. She makes adorable noises when you stroke her cheeks too.

Due to her advanced age, she’s had a thorough health check at our North London cat clinic, where the vet has determined she has kidney disease, so Kit Kat will need to have regular health checks, including blood and urine tests to monitor kidney function. It is therefore important that her kind hearted adopter is financially comfortable to cover the cost of vet care. Kidney disease is common amongst older cats and for Kit Kat this is being managed with a special renal diet which is widely available to buy from pet shops, vet’s and online.

We are looking for home where Kit Kat can live as an indoor cat. Anyone adopting an indoor cat from us needs to be committed to creating a safe indoor environment, including cat proofing windows that will be opened, and cat proofing a balcony if there is one. If the home has outside space then any doors leading directly to the garden, courtyard or patio must be catproofed. We can advise on all this.

We want nothing more than for Kit Kat to enjoy her remaining time - whether that's months or years - in the comfort of a loving home where she'll be spoiled and happy. Please contact us if you are that big-hearted person willing and able to offer that to Kit Kat.
