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.




Lois (F) HC3601

Age: 15 months
Lois is related to Clark

Lois is a very pretty girl, who is confident, friendly and absolutely full of beans. She has had the misfortune of having to live with 3 annoying boys all her life, but she has coped admirably with their nuisance behaviour, and is in fact the most boisterous of the lot when she wants to be. All the boys love Lois, and will often come over to her and offer up their heads, so that she can give them one of her special washes. She loves to run around and play chase with her friends too

Lois is of the very firm belief that humans have been put on this planet for the sole purpose of rubbing her belly! She will locate a human, wind around its legs until it stops moving, then perform an intricate dance of forward rolls and headstands to get herself into a position where she is prostrate on her back, legs akimbo, having her belly massaged... and she will stay there until the human tires, purring like a Bugatti! A small sample of this can be seen in the videos below.

Lois has really come out of her shell in her foster home and is growing in confidence all the time. She will just need a little bit of time and patience to settle into a new home before she's charging all around and sprawling on her back for belly time!

Lois has been microchipped, neutered and vaccinated and is ready to make a new family her belly slave. Lois and Clark must be homed together, and will make the perfect pair of cats for a loving and patient family.

Clark (M) HC3603

Age: 15 months
Clark is related to Lois

Clark looks like a big, imposing chap, happily surveying the world he owns from his foster carers knee, but he is in fact a complete and total softie. Although he is getting braver all the time he can still be easily spooked and will then take speedy, evasive action. However, once he knows and trusts you Clark wants nothing more than loads of fuss, and a lap to curl up on for a nice kip. He is always the first one to come over for cuddles and will often get so comfy on your lap that you have to stay so positioned for many hours at a time. Clark is also a talkative chap and will often tell you about his day, or instruct you to stroke and coddle him if you are neglecting your duties. He has a lovely, loud purr that he uses very often. He can be seen in the videos above, lying patiently on his fosterer's leg waiting for attention while his sister Lois is enjoying her belly rub. immediately after the video ends Clark decided that was enough and had a good talk to his human, demanding a bit more fuss for himself. In the second video he's a little more forceful about making sure the attention is shared out!

Clark will be nervous of new people, but he will massively reward the time taken to let him get to know you, as he is a genuinely friendly boy who really enjoys human company, as well as that of his sister, Lois.  

Clarks has been microchipped, neutered and vaccinated and is ready to make a new family his favourite laps to sleep on. Lois and Clark must be homed together, and will make the perfect pair of cats for a loving and patient family.

 



Jacob (M) HC3610

Age: 14 months
Jacob is related to Marley

This very handsome fellow most commonly goes by the name of Jake or Jakey. He has the most luxurious semi-long fur, with big fluffy white paws and a truly magnificent tail, which he will waft around very proudly at times. One of Jake's favourite things is sleeping, and he is a master practitioner in the kitten art of "floomping", which is the act of going from upright and awake to sprawled out and asleep in one smooth, swift movement. In between proper sleeps and mid-sleep naps, another of Jake's favourite pastimes is indulging in a bit of silent kitten fighting with his brother, Marley. This can seen in the video below of the two of them playing, while a friend gets mesmerised by Jake's glorious tail!

Jake has the loveliest fur to stroke, and he enjoys a bit of fuss from humans he knows, especially a little ear scratch or chin tickle. However, he is still a little shy and will scamper off if approached too quickly, so it's best to let him choose to come to you when he deems that it might be cuddle time... which could coincide with dinner time.

Jake has been microchipped, vaccinated and neutered and is ready to start his life in a loving new home. Jacob and Marley must be homed together, and will benefit from a patient family, who will allow them to blossom into the fantastic cats they will become.

Marley (M) HC3611

Age: 14 months
Marley is related to Jacob

Although formally titled Marley, this little chap has let it be known to his fosterers that he prefers to be called Mooks, or even Mookins at a push! He's a very sweet little boy, with a pretty face, which often gives him the demeanour of a slightly furry otter. Marley is a very playful lad and loves to run around, occasionally carrying a toy in his mouth, or have a silent mime fight with his brother, Jacob. See the video above for an example. He has also developed a very effective escape manoeuvre for whenever he is cornered by a fellow kitten, which involves leaping about 3 feet in the air, with paws splayed out in all directions and then landing with his legs already running, in a Road Runner style!

Mooks is a quiet little fellow, and he will come over to you for a bit of fuss when he wants it, and then arch his back high for a good stroke, and deliver little gentle head-butts to your hand. Like his brother, Marley is still a bit shy especially round new people, but there is a very friendly and playful boy in there just waiting to get out. 

Mooks has been microchipped, vaccinated and neutered and is ready to start his life in a loving new home. Jacob and Marley must be homed together, and will benefit from a patient family, who will allow them to blossom into the fantastic cats they will become.



Pascale (F) HC3657

Age: 21 months

 

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: 20 months

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.



Arietty (F) HC3682

Age: 18 months

Arietty started off as a terribly shy cat, very jumpy and kept her distance at all times. She only came out from under the sofa at night, hence her name Arietty, just like The Borrowers. However, we soon learnt that The Borrowers put things back when they are finished playing with them....

Since then, Etty has become extremely sociable and affectionate towards us and we now think she is ready for her forever home. 

Etty needs a child free home in a nice, cat friendly residential area with access to the outside world in the shape of a well fenced garden as she has a LOT of playful energy. We truly believe she needs to set her inner huntress/tigress free.

We hope you love her as much as we do!


Marlon (M) HC3712

Age: 10 months
Marlon is related to Brando Jessica

Marlon and Brando are virtually identical apart from the colour of their noses.  They were very timid when they came into our care and have made good progress in their foster homes.  They can be stroked now but don't like to be picked up.

We hope they can be given a chance of a permanent quiet adult only home with people who are happy to be patient with them and let them progress further at their own pace.


Brando (M) HC3713

Age: 10 months
Brando is related to Marlon Jessica

Branco is Marron's brother and they need to be homed together.  They were incredibyly timiid when we first took them in but  have made good progress in their foster home and can be stroked although not picked up yet.

It's tme for them to move on to a quiet adult only home with patient people who will allow them to continue their progress at their own pace.


Jessica (F) HC3714

Age: 10 months
Jessica is related to Marlon Brando

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: 17 months
Angel is related to Seraphina Malakhi Phoebe

Angel had been living rough for a while, but found a safe place to have her kittens, in someone's shed.  The shed's owner made sure Angel and her little family stayed comfortable, until we could take them all into care.

Angel has definitely been a pet before, but seems to have been living stray long enough to have become wary of humans.  That said, she is enjoying having the run of her foster home, and has already relaxed enough to sprawl and snooze contentedly in the living room, in-between riotous games of chase with her offspring.  Given time, and with the right owner, Angel should become a delightful companion.

Suitable for an adult-only home, or one with sensible older children (mid-teens +); Angel has been fine with the fosterer's own cats.  She may be adopted on her own, or with her son, Malachi (HC3832).

Angel has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms.


Seraphina (F) HC3831

Age: 6 months
Seraphina is related to Angel Malakhi Phoebe

Seraphina is the smallest of her family, but she doesn't let that stop her joining in the wild games of chase, or their raids on the living room to steal the resident cats' toys.  Seraphina's favourite toys are catnip mice, and anything with feathers, which she kidnaps and drags upstairs to play with on the human's bed.  Once she overcomes her shyness, she'll be a lovely, sweet, and gentle companion.

Must be homed with one of her siblings.  Probably not suitable for children.

Seraphina will have been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms.

 


Malakhi (M) HC3832

Age: 6 months
Malakhi is related to Angel Seraphina Phoebe

Malachi's main interest in life -- for the moment, at least -- is Food.  He can be quite assertive with his siblings, especially at mealtimes, when he *has* to be the first to try any and every dish.  Once he's finished though, he does have the good manners to step back and let his brother and sisters eat.  When it's not feeding time, Malachi likes to play with the little jingly balls with bells inside, and to check that gravity is still working...

His weakness for all things edible has made it relatively easy to get him used to taking treats from the human's hand, and hopefully stroking will be allowed soon too.

Could be homed with one of his siblings, or with his mum, Angel (HC3829), with whom he is quite bonded.  Would prefer a fairly quiet home, children eight years or over.

Malachi will have been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms.

 


Phoebe (F) HC3833

Age: 6 months
Phoebe is related to Angel Seraphina Malakhi

Phoebe is the boldest member of the family, wanting to investigate everything and explore everywhere.  She also wants to make friends with any other cat she meets.  Phoebe happily accepts treats from the human's hand, will snooze on the bed even when there's a human under the covers, and sometimes spends the evening companionably in the living room.

Phoebe could be homed on her own providing she had some daytime company, but could also go with a sibling.    Needs a quiet home, children eight years and over only.

Phoebe will have been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and treated for fleas and worms.


Liquorice (M) HC3869

Age: 6 months
Liquorice is related to Aniseed

Liqo is a complete and utter lovebug… he wants nothing more than to be stroked and petted and rewards humans with lots of purrs and paw kneading!  He loves his tummy being rubbed and has the dubious habit of batting his treats around the room instead of eating them – which does mean he often loses them to his brother, Anis.  He is obsessed with sitting outside the front door of the flat watching people come and go and has even made friends with the neighbour’s cat.

He must be adopted with his brother

Liquorice has been neutered, is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. To see more click on the link below

Aniseed (M) HC3870

Age: 6 months
Aniseed is related to Liquorice

Anis has finally allowed humans to pet him!  His foster carers has finally been permitted to give him strokes and he even purrs – it has to be on the bed when humans are lying down and it has to be timed well.  However he’s a very clever boy who has quickly learned to “fetch” with his toy mice and brings it back again and again and again – so far, he hasn’t given up with this game before his human!  This is how we finally had the breakthrough with the stroking as he now sees hands as a source of fun and something to be liked (or patted with a paw if they don’t through the mouse for fetch quickly enough!).  He is still jumpy when people are standing but he is so adorable, we just work around that!

Aniseed is neutered, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

MUST  BE ADOPTED WITH LIQUORICE

Rizzo (F) HC3877

Age: 20 months
Rizzo is related to Frenchy Kenicke

Rizzo is a very pretty grey and white young mum who was living in a front garden with her kittens on a dangerous road with very little shelter.

She is timid but not feral.    She will need a quiet home probably without children where she can continue to make progress.  The photo doesn't do her justice.


Frenchy (F) HC3878

Age: 6 months
Frenchy is related to Rizzo Kenicke

Frenchy is a very pretty grey and white kitten.  Like the rest of her litter she is timid and would need a quiet home where she can progress at her own pace.

MUST BE HOMED WITH A SIBLING AND NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN


Kenicke (M) HC3881

Age: 6 months
Kenicke is related to Rizzo Frenchy

Kenicke is the largest of the "Grease" litter.  A beautifully marked tabby with a white muzzle.  Like the rest of the litter he is still timid and will need a home with patient people.

Kenicke is fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered.

MUST BE HOMED WITH A SIBLING

NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN



Callie (F) HC3886

Age: 10 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.  For instance if a treat is put on a white napkin she will find it but if it's on a brown surface she won't.

She is a very affectionate little girl,  loves cuddles and can be held like a baby but if she's startled she will growl and try to bite out of fear.  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




Tammy - aka Mrs. Dribbles (F) HC3895

Age: 17 months

Tammy was found sheltering in bushes and was being fed by some of the neighbours.  Sadly she had no microchip to help us trace her owner.   Before moving to her foster home she spent some time at one of our vets who took the first photo and said "She is so keen for a stroke she just wants to head butt the camera or climb up a leg! She’s very, very sweet and will use her paw to pat you asking for more strokes. She loves human affection and gets so excited she dribbles - hence her nickname!"

Tammy settled quickly into a foster home who have this to say about her "Tammy is lovely, very friendly and trusting.  She loves lap naps, cuddles and being petted and purrs loudly with joy and dribbles!   She is also curious and takes part in daily activities checking what am I doing, observing and sniffing around. She likes to play with her mice toys and string toys, running around the house from one room to the other."

Tammy is petite, super friendly and very sweet and would be an ideal family cat.

She has been spayed, micro-chipped and started her vaccinations.

Her ideal home would be where she has some day time company.
