Celia Hammond Animal Trust - Lewisham
Rehoming Cats & Kittens: London (West), London (East) & Kent (West)

Bobby came into our care as part of a pair of 5 year old brothers who were handed in for homing as unwanted pets.  Our vets discovered that Bobby was having some breathing difficulties - in fact he had a chronic ruptured diaphragm - when we spoke to his previous owner they said that Bobby was involved in a road accident two years previously and that his injury most likely happened then.  Bobby required surgery to repair his diaphragm six weeks ago and has made a good recovery.

Whilst recovering Bobby had to spend time on his own but we reunited the two cats after three weeks, unfortunately after another three weeks we decided to rehome them seperately as they really were not close to each other and Bobby seemed rather submissive. 

Bobby is a shy but quietly friendly cat who is seeking an adult home with a garden.

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 or from 12th April, it is now possible to come and meet our cats by appointment 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.
