This is our official list of cats in our care that need homes. It is updated as soon as there are any changes, sometimes even daily.
Our re-homing centre is currently completely full and we have 24 cats and kittens in total needing homes.
Volunteer cat cuddlers are always welcome as they do an important job of keeping the cats socialised with people and more re-homeable as a result. Fosterers are always and very much needed. With more fosterers we could help more cats.
If you would like to visit our centre with a view to adopting one (or more!) -or to come and make a fuss of them, or even just to satisfy your curiosity- please contact Ian Williams by one of the following methods-
Because of increasing expenses, we now have to ask for a donation of £20 for cats we take in. We can only accept cats in the re-homing centre that have been neutered/spayed and vaccinated against cat flu, though we may be able to help with this.
Something to think about: every cat we re-home means we have space to take in another cat which might otherwise either be tossed out to fend for itself or destroyed.
There are three parts to the list: cats at the re-homing centre, cats fostered out, cats re-homed. Unless stated otherwise, Ian is the contact.
Introducing a new section: Lost and Found.
If you have lost your cat, email me a photo plus cat and your details and I'll put it on this page for 3 months or until you've got it back back whichever is the shorter period. The same if you have found a cat.
Rosie, male, missing Penshaw area since 30/06/14. Added 20/07/14. If found/seen please contact: Louise at email@example.com
Cats at the re-homing centre.
Sansa, female, about 2, pale ginger and white, still settling in but seems like a nice cat, doesn't like other cats though. Arrived 05/07/14.
Pierre, a large friendly longish-haired black and white male age 18 months. Everyone who meets him loves him. Just not enough to take him home. Surely there's a place in your house and heart for him. Arrived 30/03/14.
Sox, age uncertain but about 12-18 months, very friendly, a really nice young boy cat put in our care as a result of a family break up. Who will give this kittenish cat a home? Arrived 24/06/14. Reserved.
Aoife, 5 yrs, black with small white patch, female, ideal for a single person or couple with no children or other animals, likes having a fuss made of her, sitting on knees and sleeping on beds but otherwise low maintenance. Used to being a house cat. Must be the only cat. Only given up by her idiot fosterer (me) because he had too many cats in the house and some had to go. Arrived April 2013.
Burnside, 8-9 years old, ginger-white, been living rough-ish for three years, not a bad cat but best placed in a home without any other cats. Takes a little while to settle down and, at first, will escape if he can but he is friendly and likes people. The sort of cat that grows on you the longer you have him. Dependent on the kindness for strangers for many years, he's looking for someone who will finally give him a permanent home and love him in the late summer of his life. Arrived 05/04/14.
(The unfortunately named) Rasputin is a two year old female and very friendly. Desperately needs someone to adopt her and give her a new name more fitting to her loving nature. Arrived 30/04/14.
Roly, a lively friendly 2 year old boy. Missing the company of his sister who was re-homed recently, he's looking for a human on whom he can lavish his love. Arrived 03/04/14.
Hero. male, two and a half, b/w arrived 03/01/14, Frightened of children but generally friendly. That's his story and he's sticking to it. Come on, there must be someone out there for a bonny boy like him.
