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: 12 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.


Whisper (F) HC3212

Age: 5 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: 5 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 !!!

Belle (F) HC3244

Age: 6 years




Callie (F) HC3886

Age: 3 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.  



Honey (F) HC4115

Age: 22 months

Honey is a beautiful young tortoiseshell cat who is looking for a very patient owner who can give her the time and space to realise all humans are not intrinsically bad. She loves her food and home comforts but at the moment is definitely not a lap cat and is not keen on human touch.

Scaredy-cats like Honey can be very rewarding and make very loyal companions when they finally learn to trust their owner.

She would need a quiet adult only home with no other cats as she really doesn't like them which is typical tortie.

Honey is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped.



Kirrin (F) HC4285

Age: 19 months

Kirrin was less than a year old when she came into our care heavily pregnant -  the feline version of a teenage mum. She had been reported on social media roaming around the area obviously pregnant.

She gave birth to 5 kittens and now they are weaned, she has been neutered and is looking for her permanent home, away from the kids, who can be a pawful for a single mother.

She's very friendly, laid back, loves batting foil balls and begging for treats.

She'll be very good with children old and informed enough to know what a tailflick means. Her tail is beautifully expressive, as it's impressively long, in contrast to her petite frame.

She doesn't need much attention, and would be comfortable being left alone during the day.

We think she would prefer to be the sole pet in the household.  She is OK living indoors with her fosterer but in time would like to have a safe garden to explore.

Kirrin has been neutered, started her vaccinations and been micro-chipped.




Lexie (F) HC4354

Age: 2 years

Lexie was dropped into one of our vets by a lady who had been feeding her. She is now in a foster home and this is what they say about her:

"Due to lock-down we've had Lexie for a while now, and she has gone from strength to strength while living in our foster home.  Her coat is thick and shiny and super soft, she could even do with losing a tiny bit of weight! She likes to supplement her breakfasts and dinners with treats from the neighbours and self-caught mice, she is very resourceful. She has beautiful white whiskers and piercing eyes, a white 'bib' in the front, a white stripe down her tummy and the cutest little white socks - she's really very pretty!

Though she is a small cat, she has a loud purr and great confidence. As she has been with us for so long she's been allowed to go outside, and has immediately become the ring leader of the other cats in our street. We even saw her chasing a fox, and several big dogs in the park - she is completely fearless. But behind all that scrappy-ness, she is a real softy. She loves a fuss while purring loudly, wants to know what you're up to, even follows you into the loo and comes and sits next to you on the sofa. She supervises our cooking sitting on top of the bin in the kitchen.

She is confident enough to be in a household with children who know how to behave around animals - she would love a playmate, someone to chase with some string or ribbon (she does spectacular jumps!) but also someone who knows when to leave her alone and let her nap or reflect quietly. We would recommend children who are old enough to understand they can't grab/pull/frighten her. 

Lexie definitely needs a home with a garden and surroundings where she can roam, so that she can safely go on the prowl and have her little adventures. We keep her in at night, which is lovely as she sleeps and purrs in bed and makes the perfect nap buddy. 

We don't think Lexie is the kind of cat who can live with another cat.

Lexie has been spayed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and treated for fleas and worms

To see more of her please check out Lexie's own video and her photo album on Facebook. 

 



Tia (F) HC4381

Age: 16 months

Tia came into our care recently due to a change in her owner's circumstances.  She is a sweet and friendly little girl but can be a little shy with people she doesn't know but this will change once she feels secure and settled in her new home.  She is very partial to catnip so  some catnip toys would make her feel at home when she is adopted.

She would be fine for a family with older children say 8 years and above  as she can nip if she get's excited.    She would be equally happy in an adult only home and would like a secure garden to investigate

Tia is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date with her vaccinations. 



Kofi (F) HC4383

Age: 5 years

 Kofi came to live with us in March due to a change in her owners’ circumstances. She settled in well and was friendly and allowed us to stroke her from day 1, although for the first few weeks she preferred to have a bit more quiet time to herself as she took in her new surroundings.

She is a friendly cat that likes to have her beautifully soft fur stroked and is happy to have a quick cuddle. She also likes to rub against your legs particularly just before her meal times whilst purring loudly.

Kofi likes being able to potter around the garden so would love to have a garden in her new home, although she tends to stay close to home.

When playing, she especially likes chasing balls or toy mice, particularly the catnip variety, and she loves athletically jumping after toys in the air.

She also has an amusing character trait of being very curious, so you may find that she will want to do a full check of your cupboards in the beginning pulling them open herself and climbing in to check out the contents.

Kofi would like a quiet adult only home with a garden.

She is neutered, chipped and is fully vaccinated.  There a a couple of video clips where you can see her playing

Toffy (M) HC4404

Age: 2 years

Hi I’m Toffy, a beautiful tabby cat with a great and funny personality.

 I was a stray cat before Haws found me and now I’m enjoying the very comfy life with the humans.

 My life now is all about team work, you stroke my belly-I make tiny biscuits in the air. You wriggle my toy-I will jump high to catch it then carry it around the house.

You are in home office meeting-I sleep behind you on the sofa edge so everybody can see how cute I am. You want to watch tv- I meaw for attention. You sleep or not all night-I sleep by your side. You want me to sit on your lap-I will sit on your chest. You doing your gardening-I check your work. You walk somewhere in the house-I’ll follow you. And so on. And for all your hard effort I let you kiss my handsome face or massage my shoulder and in return I give you lots of head bumps whilst I’m purring in happiness.

Toffy is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

He would be fine for a family with children 10 years and over.  



Reggie (M) HC4417

Age: 4 years

Reggie is a delightful fellow to have around, friendly, playful and companionable. He has been with us since late May and settled in straight away with confidence. The vets have placed him at 3-5 years, and I suspect he is at the younger end of this as he is so playful. He likes to be around people, so will often move from room to room to sit nearby to wherever I am working / spending time. He is very cuddly, not a lap cat, but the kind who will chill next to you on the sofa, frequently offering his belly and fluffy underchin areas for a good rub. He sleeps on the foot of my bed most nights. He is well litter trained. He loves playing with toys, chasing string, and catching dreamy treats. He also uses a scratch post.  

He loves to be brushed and needs it regularly as he is a longish haired chap. He eats well, dry food all day, and a little wet in the evenings to supplement. He has a very cool party trick for taking treats from your fingertips too. 

He is definitely an outdoor cat, and that is why I am keen to get him rehomed asap. He pines for the outdoors, sitting on our window ledges longingly looking at the trees and grass. He might be okay with other cats and children, we've not had either in the house since his arrival, but he really is chilled so it could work.  

He is quite a noisy chap too, so would suit a home that is accepting of a fellow who likes to sing. That said, I think most of his meeowing is because he wants to play outside and is currently 'trapped' in a top floor flat. A garden home will be ideal for Reggie and he will make for a delightful, loyal family pet.

 He's been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped


Skittle (F) HC4421

Age: 15 weeks
Skittle is related to Chupa Chup

Skittle is Chupa Chup's sister. 

Skittle is the little daredevil of the family. Although the whole family is still extremely shy, little Skitt is the leader of explorations, the instigator of fun and games and probably the fastest of them all. She has beautiful colouring, from greys and browns to gingers and has the cutest little face.  

Skitt cannot yet be handled and will run away when you try to pick her up - however we believe that in a calm, loving Forever Home she will settle and start coming up for snuggles. When tempted by treats, she is already brave enough to come and sit on you. 

SKITTLE AND CHUPA CHUP MUST BE HOMED TOGETHER

Not suitable for families with young children.For more pictures and videos, please visit the Candy Kittens photo album on Facebook.

 Skittles is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

SHE WILL NEED ACCESS TO A SECURELY FENCED PRIVATE REAR GARDEN


Chupa Chup (F) HC4422

Age: 15 weeks
Chupa Chup is related to Skittle

Chupa Chup is  Skittle's sistter. 

Chups is the most 'perfect' looking one - with her perfectly symmetrical stripes and patterns, she's like a poster cat for a posh cat food brand! She is the biggest of the kittens, but not the bravest one - she is very shy. She does the most amazing 'double chin' face when she is looking up at you or concentrating. She loves to play with her sisters and likes to play hide and seek under the blankets. Chups needs time and patience, but will no doubt become a lovely little companion to have around. 

Not suitable for families with young children and must be homed with her sister Skittle 

For more pictures and videos, please visit the Candy Kittens photo album on Facebook

Chups is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

SHE WILL NEED A HOME WITH A SECURELY FENCED PRIVATE REAR GARDEN

Forrest (M) HC4442

Age: 7 months

We were told Forrest  is a Maine Coon by the person who handed him over to us and we are fairly certain he is. At 6 months of age he is the size of a fully grown adult cat.  Here is what his fosterer says about him

Forest settled in really quickly when he came to us, he really is an adorable young man who is still very much a kitten who loves nothing more than to play with his toys or anything else laying around the house. He is slowly learning that feet are not toys. 

He has a lot of energy and will spend most of the morning playing followed by a long afternoon nap.  He loves to sit next to you on the sofa, sometimes with his head on your lap and loves a chin and belly rub. Second photo showing off his very fluffy tummy. He also enjoys being brushed and playing with the brush.

 He's been out in the garden a few times but doesn't like going out on his own so will follow you back when you go indoors.  

He also loves to flick his biscuits out of the bowl and chase them around the kitchen before eating them.

He will need a secure garden and somebody around during the day to stop him being lonely. He could be OK with older children.

He is neutered, chipped and started his vaccinations. Forrest would prefer to be an only cat.

Parks (M) HC4445

Age: 10 weeks
Parks is related to Coretta

Parks is a black and white "tuxedo" boy, and the only way to tell him apart from his sister is he has a black chin and she has a white chin.  Parks is very funny, very playful and affectionate to people as he was  hand-reared after being found in a park at only one week old, with his 2 siblings, being pecked by crows.  Parks is bonded to his sister, Coretta and must go together.  They nearly always curl up to go to sleep with each other 

The white parts of his fur is yellow tinged at the ends because the unrelated female cat in the hand rearing home helped out with the cleaning a bit too much and over groomed them all when they were little. Who knew, over grooming causes saliva stains on white fur!!  The yellow will go away the first time he does a full coat change and is already fading as new white fur grows through.

Coretta (F) HC4446

Age: 10 weeks
Coretta is related to Parks

Coretta is a black and white "tuxedo" girl and the only way to tell her apart from her brother is he has a black chin and she has a white chin.  Coretta is very playful, a bit clumsy (but she bounces well and it doesn't stop her exploring) and affectionate to people as she was  hand-reared after being found in a park at only one week old, with her 2 siblings, being pecked by crows.  Coretta is bonded to her brother, Parks, and they must go together.  They nearly always curl up to go to sleep with each other. 

The white parts of Coretta's fur is yellow tinged at the ends because the unrelated female cat in the hand rearing home took her step mum duties very seriously and over groomed them all when they were little.  Who knew, over grooming causes saliva stains on white fur!!  The yellow will go away the first time she does a full coat change and is already fading as new white fur grows through.

Luna (F) HC4467

Age: 3 years

This is Luna who is looking for a new home as a change in circumstances means her current owner sadly can't keep her.  This is what she says about her.

"Luna has always had a lot of love and affection and is very good with children.  Grandchildren often pick her up and she never scratches even if she doesn't like it that much.

She's a homely cat but loves the garden and spending time outside so a safe garden is esential for her. 

She's neutered and up to date with her vaccinatons.  She also has a pet passport as she's been to Spain before.  "
