Rehoming Cats & Kittens: London (West), London (East) & Kent (West)
Bertie

Bertie is a middle aged ex stray. Some people had been feeding him their garden and had got him neutered and returned back to their garden. Bertie started to grow in confidence and when the weather was cold he wanted to come indoors but they didn't want him inside so asked us to take him in.

Bertie was inittially very shy but has gradually become more used to us and although a quiet cat can be stroked and is warming to us.   When Bertie was neutered blood tests were run which revealed that he is FIV+  Bertie is currently in good health though.

CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 SITUATION and cat adoptions. 

The coronavirus pandemic does mean that we have had to alter our usual homing procedures. Pre-coronavirus we would meet potential adopters in their homes (home visit) this was an informal visit to provide advice about caring for cats or kittens e.g health care, feeding, settling in and also an opportunity for us to feel reassured that you could provide a good home.  We have replaced our usual home visit with a video call via What'sApp or similar to provide the same advice and so that you can also show us the cat relevant areas of your home e.g garden, location of a cat flap etc. 

Following a successful home assessment we match cats and homes and will suggest suitable cats to you.  We can provide photos and short video's of our cats and discuss them in more depth, in which case if you wish to go ahead we deliver the cats / kittens to your home as a door step handover. Adoption paperwork is completed as far as possible in advance over the phone. You then adopt the cats or kittens on a trial adoption basis.  Despite this being a new and unusual way to adopt cats we have so far found that adoptions are successful. 

From 12th April, it is now possible to come and meet our cats following a successful home assessment.  

We are prioritising homes that are local to our centres.  Lewisham Branch  Homing catchment area: All SE London and BR (Bromley) postcodes. Also N.Kent (Welling, Bexley, Sidcup, Swanley, Dartford), Croydon and SW London (SW8, SW9, SW2, SW11, SW4, SW12, SW16) If you can offer a home to a 'harder to rehome' cat we will consider homes outside our usual rehoming areas.
