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.



Indie (M) HC1208

Age: 11 years

Indie 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.

Indie is neutered and micro-chipped.

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 !!!


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!


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.




Callie (F) HC3886

Age: 2 years

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.  


Faith (F) HC3899

Age: 2 years

Faith, Hope and Charity came into our care as feral strays who we took from a colony of cats living in an area that was very unsafe, we don't know how they weren't killed in the traffic. Normally we would neuter and return ferals if somebody was happy to continue feeding them but in this case it wasn't ethical to do so.

They are still wary of human contact but we think with a lot of patience they could come round.  We are looking for somebody who could give this trio, initially, an outdoor home with the hope that after time they would want to come in.  

The other alternative would be a stables or smallholding where the owners live on the premises.  This trio would be ideal to keep the rodent population down.

They are all young, healthy and neutered.  If you are interested please contact initially by email cats@haws-animals.org.uk and we will get back to you to answer any questions you may have.


Charity (F) HC3913

Age: 2 years

Hope (F) HC3914

Wilfred (M) HC4140

Age: 4 years

Wilfred was a stray being fed by a family who were moving away so asked if we would take him.  He is a friendly boy.  He has just moved into a foster home after boarding for a while at one of our vets.  His foster parents have given some more information now they've got to know him better.

"Things I learned about Wilfred in the past 2 weeks. He loves playing with toys so we have lots of cat toys all around the house in every room and he seems to prefer  to play by himself. He also likes scratching posts and boards and cat tunnels. We have every room door open in the house as he likes to know he can go anywhere he wants.  When you pet him keep an eye on his tail. If it's moving even if he is not purring it means he is not totally happy and relaxed and eventually he will tap you with his paw but he never uses claws on humans. A very smart cat!  He loves windows.  We put his soft bed on the window sill and it's his favourite spot now.   It's been 2 weeks since he arrived in this house and most of the time he walks with his tail straight up. Confident and happy?  We are probably just starting to see his real character now. He does like cuddles but on his own terms so if you can learn his body language you will know when and how he likes it.  Just now he is rubbing his face on my face as I type"

Wilfred is neutered, micro-chipped and fully vaccinated.
