Cats & kittens

Rehoming list

Please consider an older cat as they are often calmer, gentler, loving and more grateful!
Black or black and white cats and kittens are nearly always overlooked so please also take this into account.

Marge (F) HC2120

Age: 7 years

Marge is an elegant and playful young cat of about 5/6 years old. Very sleek black with a white diamond on her chest and white patch on her belly.  She will be good with another cat and will probably make friends with him/her first.    Marge has been in foster care for some time and has only recently allowed her foster family to stroke her. She is independent and does her own thing.  She is very outdoorsy and loves climbing trees so will need a garden.  She's very laid back and a lovely natured female and we have enjoyed having her around to see her develop.





Ella (F) HC2208

Age: 9 years

Ella is a friendly, happy little cat who loves people and being the centre of attention.  She has become increasingly outgoing in foster care with us and has discovered the joys of the garden which she absolutely loves.  She has a medical condition called hyperthyroidism which needs to be controlled by taking a tablet each day and Ella is no trouble at all, taking the tablet down happily when it is put in a little wet food. 

Ella really does have a lovely temperament, and is affectionate and curious.  Because she likes people she would probably like to live with humans who are home for part of the day.   She definitely needs a private garden because she loves it so much.  She doesn't like to play - we suspect she never had chance to learn it - so she wouldn't be a good choice of pet for children who want to play with a cat.    We also think she might rather like to be the only pet in a household ... just so she can have you all to herself!

She has been spayed, microchipped and vaccinated and is looking for a permanent home to call her very own


Mr. Yellow (M) HC2422

Age: 5 years

Mr Yellow is an independent but affectionate cat. He likes to go out and explore and will often be out the whole day on his adventures, particularly in the summer. Like all cats he spends more time indoors in the winter and when he has got to know you he will be happy to sit on your lap in the evening, purring away and sleeping contentedly...

He is a very gentle and retiring cat with other cats and has no problems mixing with them, but would appreciate other cats who are not aggressive because he is very submissive.

 Mr yellow would suit a quiet environment and/or would also suit somebody who works  all day 

Not suitable for homes with children.

Mr. Yellow is neutered, microchipped and up to date with his vaccinations.


Whisper (F) HC3212

Age: 3 years

This litte female was part of a stray colony and our intention was to neuter and put her back but after a couple of days at the vets they realised she isn't feral just a little timid but friendly so it wouldn't be right to put her back.

The vet nurses called her Whisper as she's very quiet.  She will probably need a quiet adult only home where she can flourish.

Whisper has been vaccinated, neutered and micro-chipped.


Myrtle (F) HC3232

Age: 3 years

Myrtle's story
Well we started in our own commune, we had lots of babies and eventually there were too many of us.  That's when HAWS came along and collected us in small groups.  Myrtle (that's me) and Beauty went first and had our kittens, the kittens have all been adopted as they were all cute.  Beauty was adopted and that left me - I was lonely and miserable, one day Nicola who looked after me and my five kittens moved me and  I met up with five of my cousins or they may possibly be my brothers and sister I really can't remember.  One thing about us is we are all shy and nervous but we do love dinner and treat time, at night we move our beds around the room to confuse Nicola in the morning.  We are all black except Mog who is black and white, the rest of us do have little white hidden markings, mine Is on my  tum.  Let me introduce you there is Little one she is small and cute, we have William he is the biggest, Munro who is the middle one and Midge!  Myself and Little One are the ladies the rest are gents!!  I can't tell you how long it took me to get everybody in one place and to make them sit still for a photo !!!


Lara (F) HC3267

Age: 3 years

Lara came from a multi-cat household and was relinquished to us when she became pregnant again.   She gave birth to two kittens who have now been adopted.

Not only is she beautiful with the softest slky fur she is a sweet and gentle cat.  Lara should be fine with sensible older children.  She needs to be the only cat in the household and needs access to a secure garden.

We can't understand why this beautiful cat has been overlooked.

She's been spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated


Li'l Puss (F) HC3358

Age: 3 years

Li'l Puss was a heavily pregnant stray when she was taken in to have her kittens.  She only had one surviving kitten - Velcro - who went to his forever home a while ago now.

Li'l Puss is now about 3 years old. A lady who loves her food, she loves a brush as well  and will purr away at full volume. As she was semi feral she is fine with contact but is not much of a lap cat unless there are a few treats on offer.  However, she does like company and will settle down for a snooze wherever you are. She is looking for a forever home where she can do her own thing but still be pampered. 



Mimi (F) HC3622

Age: 3 years

Mimi is a pretty glossy black adult female cat.   She was found as a stray living in a communal garden.

She is very shy and will need lots of patience to help her gain confidence and relax around you.  These very shy cats can be so rewarding when they finally learn to trust you. 

Could Mimi have a chance of a happy life with you?

Mimi has been spayed and micro-chipped and will be vaccinated before going to a new home 



Pascale (F) HC3657

Age: 2 years

 

Pascale is only just over a year old and was living rough on a towpath until a kind house boat owner realised she was heavily pregnant and contacted HAWS.  Her kittens were born on Good Friday and Pascale has been a wonderful mum despite being so young.

She is a sweet petitle little cat and since her kittens have all grown up she has re-discovered her inner kitten. She would make an ideal pet for families with gentle children over 8 years of age.  She's a bit over-whelmed by very small people as she's not been used to them.

FAMILY FRIENDLY FOR SENSIBLE CHILDREN 8 YRS+


Heidi (F) HC3660

Age: 2 years

Heidi is a very appropriate name for this pretty little black girl.  She is very shy but fine with other cats.  She came into our care with her kittens.  Mum and kittens were found sheltering under a bush.  Her kittens have all been homed but Heid remains timid although is slowly improving in her foster home in the company of moe confident cats.

She would need a home with very patient quiet people.  She would be an ideal companion for a resident cat who has perhaps lost a companion and is in need of a new friend.


Jessica (F) HC3714

Age: 18 months

Jessica and Lola are two 6 month old sisters. They are both adorable and very bonded with each other. They love to play andd have lots of energy, they bounce about all over the place. They are very affectionate and will always check in with you then go back to whatever they were doing. Very easy going, good appetites and quite talkative.  Definitely need a garden and obviously a loving home. 

Jessica is the tabby kitten.

The sisters have been spayed, are fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.



Angel (F) HC3829

Age: 2 years
Urgent rehoming required
Angel is related to Seraphina

Angel is a beautiful young adult cat, with a sweet nature and a clear desire to recapture her kittenhood.  She plays with all the toys available, but her particular favourite is the catnip fish skeleton (see photo); having thus worn herself out, Angel looks around, yawning, for a comfortable sofa on which to snooze 

Angel came to us after giving birth to four kittens in someone's shed.  She has obviously been someone's pet in the past, and we don't know how long she had to fend for herself, but she is now very shy of humans.  She doesn't hiss or spit at all, merely stepping back and keeping a wary eye on strangers.  Angel is submissive towards other cats, always standing aside while everyone else eats, before having her own dinner.  She will probably take time to settle in her forever home, but the investment of patience and persistence will undoubtedly pay great dividends. 

Ideally, we'd like to home Angel with her daughter, Seraphina (HC3831), to a household without other cats, and preferably where they are not left alone for long periods.  Mother and daughter both have sensitive digestion, which means they are unable to eat regular supermarket cat food.  After much trial and error, their fosterer settled them on a mix of Burn's and John Wellbeloved; not a prescription diet, nor as expensive as one.

Angel has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms. The second photo shows mum and daughter curled up together at nap time.  They would be best suited to a quiet adult home

Seraphina (F) HC3831

Age: 13 months
Urgent rehoming required
Seraphina is related to Angel

Seraphina is a small and dainty kitten, full of life and energy, and keen to investigate and play with everything that comes to her attention.  She loves to chase foam balls up and down the stairs, and will sit there, chirruping and peeping, to call a human to join in her games.  A real mini-me of her mother, Angel (HC3829), Seraphina is shy, but clearly wants to make friends, even if it takes her longer than usual to do so. 

Ideally, we'd like to home Seraphina with her mum, Angel (HC3831), to a household without other cats, and preferably where they are not left alone for long periods.  Mother and daughter both have sensitive digestion, which means they are unable to eat regular supermarket cat food.  After much trial and error, their fosterer settled them on a mix of Burn's and John Wellbeloved; not a prescription diet, nor as expensive as one. 

Seraphina has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms. They would probably be best suited to a quiet adult only home

Sylvester (M) HC3875

Age: 3 years

Sylvester was being fed in someone's garden and he was obviously a very timid stray.  He is now in foster care with us this is what his fosterer says,

Sylvester is doing fine. His progress has been slow but steady. He still spends most of his time in his bed in his little room (which I keep open). Toys still scare him at times, as do my hands, no matter how gently or where I approach him from.  
 
He does enjoy being brushed and stroked but still looks very tense and will still hiss at you on occasion. He is not an aggressive cat though. He has never, ever, tried to scratch or bite me.
 
He has been a little more adventurous recently: I occasionally hear him running and jumping (especially at night).   He has started to follow me around (rubbing his head on my legs) if I'm about to give him food but runs back to the room at the sound/sight of anything unexpected. 
 
He is eating and drinking fine (he seems to go off the wet food every now and again, only licking the gravy but will eat the dry food).
 
In my opinion, it would be best for him if he were the only pet in a quiet adult only home.






Callie (F) HC3886

Age: 17 months

Callie is a pretty young tortoisehell who was abandoned at a vet practice.  She had no microchip, wasn't neutered and had a badly broken and wounded tail.  Sadly there was no alternative but to amputate most of her tail but she still has 3 or 4 inches left. the first photo shows her short tail.    Callie has been neutered and micro-chipped. 

Sadly our vet has confirmed that she is technically blind but he thinks she may be able to see some contrast. 

She is a very affectionate little girl,  loves cuddles and can be held like a baby.  She will need an experienced home with somebody around most of the time and willing to learn the best way to inter-react with her.  Her foster home says it's quite easy now they know what to do.  Blind cats cope very well once they are used to their surroundings.  She is very young and deserves a forever home.

Latest update from foster home.  While Callie hates the other female cats in the house she's very fond of Mr. Yellow and seems to want to play but sadly he's scared of her.

She could possibly be homed with a sweet natured, gentle male cat who likes other cats. Not suitable for children as she can nip but only when she's startled.

Update from foster home:  Callie will need a home with a very secure garden.  As she can't see much she enjoys the smell and feel of the garden even in the rain.  She's young and has lots of energy so an indoor home wouldn't be right for her. She also needs some daytime company as she's very chattty.  



Lixie (F) HC3959

Age: 20 months

Lixie is a beautiful little tabby cat who was rescued from a shopping trolley with her three newborn kittens and was an amazing mum, despite being very young herself, and nothing but skin and bones when she arrived. 

Her kittens have all been adopted and she is slowly coming out of her shell, but it will take a lot of patience and love to get her to reach her full potential as she is still not too keen on being touched.  She does however adore other cats and would love to be part of a cat household if at all possible.  She enjoys the garden although appears to stay close to home, and is happy sleeping on her foster carer's bed at night. 

Adopting a timid cat takes patience but it's so rewarding to watch them grow in confidence.

Lixie has been microchipped, neutered and vaccinated.


Carmen (F) HC3963

Age: 20 months

Carmen is a very pretty young mum with a very impressive fluffy tail.   She was terribly shy at first and scared when she first came into our care with her three kittens - the "Chipmunk" litter.

While in her foster home she has made a complete about turn and now loves fuss and attention, to the point where she used to push her kittens out of the way to be first in line for some strokes.

Carmen absolutely loves other cats so for someone who is looking for a companion for their cat Carmen would be ideal.   She goes up and kisses every cat she sees, even if its not always reciprocated!

Carmen would need a quiet home and preferably with another cat.    She has been in foster for a while now and would love her own home.


Harry (M) HC3991

Age: 23 weeks
Harry is related to Alfie Archie Dora Teddy Freddie

Harry came from a multi-cat household and is related to the other kittens in his foster home.   He is the oldest of the group and is a lovely placid easy going black boy.  He starts to purr when he sees food or you talk to him and  grooms the younger kittens.  Harry likes to be stroked and talked to

Alfie and Archie are two brothers that came to me when they were quite little.  At first they were timid and buried themselves under blankets for the first couple of days until they noticed Poppy, another black and friendly young cat of about 4 months old at the time.   Poppy brought them around and the are now cheeky iittle chapies.   They are bonded and play fight and chase eacch other and also groom one another.   

They are growing quickly as they have very good appetites and every time I go into the kitchen they are there giving little squeals for food.

TYhey are blossoming into such affectionate and playful characters - a real joy to have around.

Freddie is a slender pure black kitten with a white patch on his lower tummy.  He looks a bit oriental, loves to play and is quite acrobatic but still shy.  He permits the odd stroke and is coming on well.   Ideally he should be homed with a more confident sibling who will help him progress.

Cassie (F) HC3999

Age: 21 months

Cassie was handed into one of our vets by a concerned member of the public.  She was very heavily pregnant and gave birth to her three kittens two days later.

She is beautiful and  a really good mum to her kittens but  timid.  She's not aggressive the vet nurses can pick her up to clean her pen and she will sniff hands but backs away from stroking.  We have no idea if she'd been mistreated before.  She will take time to settle and would need a quiet adult only home.  

We've had an update about Cassie, and she is slowly becoming more confident and has stopped hiding when she's been let out with her kittens.  She seems to be fine with other cats and very sweet with other kittens who are boarding at our vets.   She just needs somebody patient who will give her time.

Cassie will be spayed, vaccinaed and micro-chipped before homing.

This is what her foster family say about her.  She has been a very good mum to her kittens. She really has been exceptionally patient with them, and very caring. She makes lovely chirruping noises at them at feeding time and when she wants to round them up.
