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.




Dotty (F) HC1121

Age: 7 years
Dotty is related to Mateo
Must be homed with Mateo

Dotty and Mateo were picked up from one of the Harrods vintage vans at their depot in Osterley as kind people there were concerned about them. Despite not having had a lot of contact and being born to a very timid mother, they were very good natured.   They have been with us since early 2011 and these two really deserve a loving forever home of their own.   They are however still a bit on the timid side and are easily startled by noise.

Both cats have had problems with their teeth.  Dotty had two operations in 2012, as a result of which she lost all her teeth except the four canines.    She needs a good quality wet food mixed with some dry food (small kibbles) due to the lack of chewing teeth.  Dotty is the female, and she is black and white.  Very pretty, very sweet, affectionate, playful and funny in her foster home.

Mateo and Dotty are siblings. They are very close to each other and need to be adopted together. They both love human company, so they cannot be left on their own for long hours at a time.  They will need outside space, and a quiet home with no children.
Neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.



Mateo (M) HC1123

Age: 7 years
Mateo is related to Dotty
Must be homed with Dotty

Dotty and Mateo were picked up from one of the Harrods vintage vans at their depot in Osterley as kind people there were concerned about them. Despite not having had a lot of contact and being born to a very timid mother, they were very good natured.     They have been with us since early 2011 and these two really deserve a loving forever home of their own.   They are however still a bit on the timid side and are easily startled by noise. 

Both cats have had problems with their teeth.   Mateo had an operation in 2012 and he now only has four canine teeth and two or three incisors at the front.    He needs a good quality wet food mixed with some dry food (small kibbles) due to the lack of chewing teeth.   

Mateo is a lovely black male.   He is affectionate in his foster home, extremely playful, vocal, lively, inquisitive. He has a beautiful face.   He is however the more anxious of the pair and darts for cover when startled by noises.

Mateo and Dotty are siblings. They are very close to each other and need to be adopted together. They both love human company, so they cannot be left on their own for long hours at a time.     They will need outside space, and a quiet home with no children.
Both of them are neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.
 


Indie (M) HC1208

Age: 10 years

Indie has been with us since he was a kitten.  He would need to be the only cat, king of his own castle.  As long as he has a cat flap and garden with someone who will stroke him in the evening he should be happy.  So Indie is fine for someone who works full time.

He is quite cheeky and will want to be stroked for a good while and will then let you know he's had enough.    He's a lovely boy, pretty independent and well behaved.   He loves his 'special biscuits' (Dreamies - so new owner must be willing to keep a constant supply!).  He is looking for a friendly, kind, down to earth owner.  He's not been outside before so would need a very secure garden and a home on a quiet road as he's not traffic aware.

Marge (F) HC2120

Age: 6 years

Marge is an elegant and playful young cat of about 2/3 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: 8 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: 4 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.




Jessy (M) HC2684

Age: 3 years

Jessy is a really handsome, pure black cat.   When he first arrived he was a very shy little boy, probably due to a disadvantaged start in life. However, over time he’s grown fully confident with his fosterers.

He has learned how wonderful it is to be stroked and he now confidently demands a fuss from regular visitors as well. New visitors will likely need to have to sit down and spend a little calm time before he will tentatively approach them too. If you’re lounging on the sofa, or relaxing under the duvet, he will invariably want to come and join you  or be by your side. Although he loves being stroked and sitting with you or lying on you, he’s still not keen on being picked up, that’s just not for him at the moment.

In the beginning, Jessy was never much of a talker, but he has always had a really cute kittenish voice. Lately though, he has become far chattier and loves to let you know what he’s been up to and have a conversation backward and forward with you.

Jessy’s a keen eater… biscuits, meat, treats, no problem. In particular, he absolutely loves treats called Tiddlers which are small dried whole fish. He gets super excited when he sees the packet and very protective when he has one in his possession. He also loves a little treat from your dinner if you let him.  If he would like something he will put his paw out toward the plate to tell you. You will never forget the first time you see him walking around with a stolen whole corn-on-the-cob lengthways in his mouth!

Jessy likes to play with his toys like his little grey mice, laser toys, and catnip fishes. He also loves to roll around in catnip which is hilarious to watch. In his spare time he likes to watch out of windows, sometimes chattering at the birds or the falling leaves. He also likes to go outside and see what is happening in the garden, though he doesn’t usually go far and isn’t usually out for long.

Although Jessy has experienced interactions with older children on occasion, he would prefer a home without children where he can calmly get to know his new family.

Neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped.


Whisper (F) HC3212

Age: 2 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: 2 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: 2 years
Urgent rehoming required

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.

She is a sweet and gentle cat and could be homed with another cat friendly feline and should be fine with sensible older children.

She's been spayed and micro-chipped.



Li'l Puss (F) HC3358

Age: 2 years

This cat was a heavily pregnant stray and taken in by a kind couple and they called her Li'll puss.  She only had one kitten - Velcro

Li'l Puss is now about 21 months old. A lady who loves her food, she loves a brush as well  and will purr away. As she was semi feral she is fine with contact but is not a lap cat at the moment.  She is looking for a forever home where she can do her own thing but still be pampered. 

 



Mimi (F) HC3622

Age: 2 years

Glossy black adult female cat - more information to follow

Mimi has been spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated



Sheba (F) HC3706

Age: 3 years

Sheba is a lovely, friendly little girl who would make an ideal cat if someone was out at work during the day, although se does enjoy company too.

 

She would prefer to be only cat and would be ok with older children.    she likes a garden but is homely too.    a real delight to have around.



Dolly (F) HC3716

Age: 4 years

WELL ... HELLO DOLLY!

She is a friendly little cat who came into our care as a stray with her 5 kittens.  She was a good mum and now wants a home of her very own.       

She is petite with long hair, stunning golden eyes and very impressive white whiskers.  She is sweet natured, affectionate and loves having her head and ears rubbed and being brushed.   She is very playful - either with you or when she is keeping herself entertained with her toys.  She is quiet most times, but loves talking to her toys while playing with them. 

 Dolly has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped and is available for adoption now

So, to quote Louis Armstrong ... now that 'You're lookin' swell, Dolly"  can we please "Find her an empty lap, fellas"?



Simba (M) HC3838

Age: 3 years
Urgent rehoming required

Simba and another cat  were taken in by a nurse at one of the vet practices we use.  The owner was threatening to dump them.

They have been with her for a little while but they aren't  really getting on as Simba is dominant.  He's a very handsome and friendly tabby boy  but really needs a home where he's an only cat. This is what she says about him.

So friendly, loves people, loves cuddles & sleeping next to you at night. Never been outside before, so could be a house cat or have the opportunity to go outside. Needs to be an only cat.  He took a while to settle in but is the most affectionate cat I've ever had.

That face is full of character and his expression says  "I'm the boss"
