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.

Whisper (F) HC3212

Age: 4 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: 4 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: 4 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: 4 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. 

Mittens (M) HC3524

Age: 2 years

'Mittens' was never meant to be his life-long name; it was just a means of identifying him while he was a tiny kitten, but somehow it stuck.  It is now completely inappropriate for this fine young fellow, well muscled and athletic.

Mittens belongs to a litter who were already two months old when they were rescued and came into contact with humans for the first time.  He is, therefore, very shy on first meeting new people, and needs to be given lots of time and space to relax and make friends in his own time.  He loves sprawling on an armchair, or sharing the sofa with his Auntie and enjoying tummy rubs.  He also likes to snuggle up on the bed with you, but is not keen on laps (he'd probably squash you if he tried it!) or cuddles.

He will need a garden, as he likes to spend quite a lot of time outdoors.  He is used to living in a multi-cat household, and may be happy to do so in his forever home.

Mittens has been neutered, micro-chipped, and is up to date with vaccinations and flea and worm treatments.

The secpnd photo shows him chilling out in the evening, he knows how to relax and let his guard down!

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 

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.

Angel (F) HC3829

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

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

See this video clip of mum and daughter together

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 well. 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 sudden movements or loud noises. 

He does enjoy being brushed and stroked and will purr away happily. On rare occasions he will hiss at you but he is not an aggressive cat. 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 has recently made a real breakthrough and slept on my bed for the first time.

He has started to venture outside but doesn't go far and comes back when he's called. It would be best for him if he were in a quiet adult only home with patient people where he can continue to progress at his own pace.

Sylvester is neutered and micro-chipped


Cassie (F) HC3999

Age: 2 years
Cassie is related to Charlie

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 was a very good mum to her kittens a bit shy, but not at all aggressiive. 

Update from her foster home

Cassie started off as a shy cat, but is making huge progress. Now she has discovered the joy of being stroked she can’t get enough, and especially enjoys being petted on her back at the base of her tail. She’s also very playful and can be entertained by pretty much any toy, and loves to leap into the air to try to catch anything waving over her head. She’s still a little bit jumpy so will need a quiet adult only home and a family that will be patient with her to begin with, but they will be rewarded with a gentle, beautiful and affectionate cat.

Cassie has been spayed, fully vaccinaed and micro-chipped.

Bubbles (F) HC4043

Age: 2 years

Bubbles is a black cat with some white spots on her neck and belly. She is an easy going friendly cat. This is what her fosterer says about her.

When we first met in the first week of September, she was heavily pregnant and purred as soon as I picked her up. She gave birth to 5 kittens on the 7th of September. She has looked after her kittens really well and has even been fostering a young abandoned kitten. She enjoys looking after her litter and purrs a lot. When she is not busy with her kittens, she likes to sit by the window and look outside. She is certainly looking forward to a forever family where she can finally settle and enjoy the outdoor.

She will have been spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated before adoption.

Rocco (M) HC4074

Age: 2 years

Rocco originally came to our attention as an un-neutered stray. He was being fed by someone who hoped he and the resident cat would get on once he was neutered.  Unfortunately this wasn't the case and afer a fight Rocco ended up with several scratches so we took him in.

He is a handsome ginger and white boy who is lovely and friendly and a BIG boy.

We have just moved him to a foster home, and he settled in straight away.  He's only been there a few days and his fosterers say it feels like he's been there for ages as he's so comfortable and friendly with them.  

Rocco would prefer to be the only pet.   He has been neutered, started his vaccinations and been micro-chipped.  

Misha (M) HC4086

Age: 6 years

Misha is a Pedigree Blue British Shorthair (we have his pedigree papers). His previous owners got a puppy and Misha was very unhappy and stressed, so his owners decided to rehome him.

He cannot be homed with dogs and should be homed as an only pet,  His ideal home would be where somebody is at home for at least part of the day.  Probably not suitable for young children.

As he is a Pedigree he woud need somewhere with a very secure garden and only be let out under supervision.  He's a friendly boy and now he's relaxed and got over his ordeal with the puppy has turned into a lap cat.  He would make a wonderful companion for the right person. Misha is neutered and chipped.  

He wanted to let you know what life has been like in his foster home and this is what he says

I am a very chilled gentleman with a very curious side. My plan was that as soon as I got in my foster home I will tick some boxes. 

Sniffing around to see if there are no dogs - they scare me, tick

Try the sofa to see if it's comfy, tick

Watching cat tv from the window ledge, tick

Demanding chin rub while watching tv, tick

Get my foster mum to have a nap with me all over her, tick

Watching her from my cat tree quietly, tick

Playing with toys later, tick

Walking to the human when I hear my name, tick

Making biscuits in their lap, tick

Put daddy to sleep, tick

Hanging out with him around the house, tick 

Laying with my whole body stretched out to show how big and fluffy I am, tick

Having a good brush to keep myself handsome, tick

Eating neatly and using the litter tray as a gentleman, tick
