Consett Cat Rescue
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: Co. Durham
Born in rescue to a feral mum on 9/5/22

She is a lovely cat that has had the misfortune to have inherited some poor genetics from her mum causing her to recently have to have most of her teeth removed. However she is recovering well and whilst there is no guarantee she will not ever need the last 2 removed, she manages to eat everything and anything and will thrive from now on.
She has also had the misfortune to have had some tummy bugs in the past but ALL were treatable with antibiotics and finally she is clear of them and has solid poops.
She is a lovely girl who is very very playful but then next minute is snuggling up under a cat fleece fast asleep. She does love the heat.
She would be a lovely pet for someone but she can be quite timid when she first meets strangers. Although she lives here with all the other cats (and gets on very well with her sister Haley), it is possible she could be an only cat but that would then take her much longer to settle in her new home. Owners must understand these things about cats.
A loving stable home is what she needs.

Please read the following general information:
General Wording covering all our cats

The cat has been NEUTERED & MICROCHIPPED. Usually they are vaccinated too but if not vaccinated then we will pay for its vaccines once adopted. (If done at one of our vets).

It has been regularly treated for fleas and worms.
It is litter trained

It is a HOUSE CAT. However we agree cats can be allowed into a catio (best option) or a cat proofed garden (2nd best option) or allowed out supervised on a SECURE cat harness. Cats cannot open windows or locked doors so there is no excuse for not being able to keep them in.

Our cats have not usually been tested with dogs. But if they have it will be written in the specific description above.

Most of our cats can live with other cats but it will state in the specific description above if they cannot. Some cats NEED to live with other cats.

Most of our cats are unsuitable for households with small children, that’s any child not capable of closing a door behind them as they go in and out of the house. Our cats mainly come from feral backgrounds and if they get out you may not get them back. Children already brought up to respect animals and have compassion for them will fare much better with our cats. We will look at everyone’s individual circumstances though but do not be offended if we say no because of your children.

A quieter home is preferred again due to the background of our cats. Having put in the effort to take these cats and get them used to people, many loud noises or busy homes can be too much for them. Yes in time they will be even tamer but that’s not from day one so consider this when enquiring.

A non-smoking home is preferred (cats can get cancer from smoking too).

All our cats come with 4 weeks free Petplan cat insurance and therefore has been health checked by our vets.
Any known health issues are fully disclosed to owners along with a copy of the vet records.

Every cat has its own back story and you will be told its history as much as we know it. Nothing is made up, its available, warts and all.

We currently ask that people donate a minimum £150 for all our adoptions. This goes towards some of the costs we have incurred in providing the basics for each cat. All cats inevitably cost us much more than this basic amount. With huge rising vet costs this figure can also change over time.

In the current economic crisis, we ask people to make sure they can afford a cat and will be able to manage ongoing expenses and vet bills AND have provision for any emergency care etc. Please think very carefully and ask yourself if you can really afford to take on a luxury such as a pet at this time. They are a long term commitment. A common reason for people giving up their pets is lack of money.

We ask people look at the age of the cat and that the human should preferably outlive the cat. There is nothing more distressing than an animal having to be rehomed after it has been settled for years with its owners. A cat can live 15-20 years and maybe longer. A common reason for people giving up their cats is owners dying or going into a care home. If you are of retirement age and older then we will not adopt young cats to you. Its very common for us to be asked to take in cats because the owner has died or gone into a home and the family never seem to be able to take them on. I suspect the owner thought they would do as we get told that a lot by older folk.

If you are interested in meeting any of our cats then as they are in foster care in private homes, it is by appointment only. You will need to read an information sheet first and then complete a questionnaire before being allowed to visit. This saves us time asking many questions as they are all on the questionnaire. Email or private message us (via our Facebook page at to ask for those documents.
