Do you have any children living at home?* Yes (detail below) No
We do not generally home kittens where there are children under the age of 4yrs old. Any kittens will be at least 4 months old before they are to be homed with young children.
Do you have any other pets at home?* Yes (detail below) No

Please state whether your pets have been vaccinated and neutered

Please note that some cats take a few months to accept living with others in the same home and it will be useful to have a spare room incase they need to be kept separate initially.

And finally

When are you ready to adopt?*

If you are only available to adopt after a certain date, or there is other info you'd like to add to this enquiry please detail in the box below.

I confirm that I have checked the HAWS catchment area * otherwise we cannot process your enquiry. However, if you are just outside this area we may still be able to consider you, but only if you are looking for an elderly, disabled or FIV cat which may otherwise never find a home - please inform us of this by giving details in the box above.

I am aware that HAWS asks for a minimum adoption fee of £100 for each kitten or cat. *
