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.



Whisper (F) HC3212

Age: 6 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 and ideally to be homed with her friend Belle who is in the same foster home.

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.

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.

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.  



Tia (F) HC4381

Age: 19 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. 


Mog (F) HC4437

Age: 6 months
Mog is related to Sparkle
Must be homed with Sparkle

Mog and Sparkle were born outside to a feral mother, they have made progress in their foster home. This is what they say about them

Sparkle is very friendly and will sit on the sofa with us.  She is very outgoing and will make a lovely companion.  Mog is very much an independent cat but will follow Sparkle so I think she will be fine, but someone will have to be patient  with her until they have gained her trust.  She won't be picked up but I can touch her.

They are great fun and will be a lovely pair for the right person. Probably best in a quieter adult home.

They are both fully vaccinated and have been micro-chipped and spayed.

MOG AND SPARKLE MUST BE HOMED TOGETHER.

Ollie (M) HC4456

Age: 23 weeks

Ollie is a sweet little boy who was born to a stray mother along with his siblings Xander and Willow.  They were all shy as they'd had little human contact, but they have come a long way,

Ollie is the bravest of the trio and has moved to a foster home on his own so he can get some one to one attention.  He has settled in really well so he can be homed on his own to people who will give him the space to settle in.   He has just been neutered.

He will need access to a secure garden once he is able to venture outside.

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OUR CATCHMENT AREA OR DON'T HAVE A GARDEN



Luna (F) HC4467

Age: 3 years

"My name is Luna and I’m a gorgeous 3 year old girl with a luxuriously soft and thick black coat that you want to pet for days.

As I haven’t had the best of luck with my previous humans I do have trust issues and it takes me a bit of time to settle down in a new place and get used to people. I don’t get on well with other pets or children as they scare me. I really just need my vey own loving and patient hooman who’s willing to give me the time, space and care I need to build up my confidence and trust.

I’ve been with my foster momma for 3 months and although I’m still not confident enough to ask for cuddles I do let her pick me up and pet me for a while cause I know she likes it so much. I kinda like it too but don’t tell her that or she’ll be doing it all the time! I’m a cat after all and have a reputation to maintain!! I’m very independent and adventurous so a kitty door and safe access to outside is essential "

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


Coco (F) HC4476

Age: 22 months

 

Coco is a sweet, loving but slightly anxious mother cat.  This might disappear when she's not with her kittens as she growls at the front door and is very vocal making sure her kittens are where she wants them or expect them to be!  She loves her kittens and plays with them.  She plays a little with humans but defers to the kittens.  She adores having head rubs, is not yet a lap cat but likes to be near her humans, especially if she thinks there is food involved! 

For more photos and videos please go to her foster Mum's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/MissSkimbleshanks/

 

Coco will be spayed, started her vaccinations and been micro-chipped before homing



Billie (F) HC4483

Age: 18 weeks
Billie is related to Ella

Billie is around 13 weeks old. Billie is the daughter of Josephine and sister of Ella 

Billie, Billie Boom, Billie The Bulldozer, Billie Bob - She is something else! A confident little tigress, she is fearless (apart from humans, she does not quite trust humans yet). She jumps, climbs, rolls, explores, terrorises! She is a delight to watch and to play with. She has a lot of energy, so definitely needs to be adopted by humans who will put the time in to play with her a lot! With her black and white fur, her fluffy face and white, springy whiskers and eyebrows, she is simply adorable! 

Like her sister Ella, Billie has not been around humans at all. As a result, she is quite scared of us. When you walk into the room, when you get up, walking around too loudly or talking too loudly - she is not a fan. She has been with us in our home for about two weeks now, and she has improved a lot, so we do believe that with time and a lot of patience and perseverance she will come round to being a human-friendly little companion. She now sleeps on foster mum's bed, she does come and look when you're doing stuff around the house and she loooooves to play with you and toys. You currently can't touch her, though, but again we think that will change over time. She would be the ideal cat for someone who has the time and understands what to expect from a sweet, bolshy but slightly unsocialised kitten.  

You will find more pictures of Billie and her mum and sister here and videos here.  

Billie could be adopted alone or with her sister or mum. Billie has been microchipped and has had her first set of vaccines. She will need to be neutered when she is older.

Ella (F) HC4484

Age: 18 weeks
Ella is related to Billie

Ella is around 13 weeks old. Ella is the daughter of Josephine and sister of Billie

Little Ella Bella is the shy one of the Jazz Cats. The identical twin of Polly (adopted a few weeks ago), her personality couldn't be more different. She is shy and pensive, observes for a long time before she gets involved and is the last one to come out for breakfast and supper. Having said that, there is a feisty side to this little Ella Enchanted that is starting to come out more and more every day. She climbs to the tops of the scratch posts and performs acrobatics on the clothes racks. She will join in once she sees that Billie and mumma Josephine are happily playing with us, too.  

Ella has a beautiful black coat, which is currently still very woolly from kitten-hood. We suspect she will become sleek and shiny like mum Josephine. When she is lying in the sunshine, you can see her hidden stripes, very striking!  

Ella is slowly starting to warm up to us. We are managing to get her to eat from our hands, she comes onto the bed to sleep and if you are sitting quietly reading or at your computer, she is confident enough to come and nap near you if there is a soft blanket or a snuggly cat bed nearby. Ella loves basking in the sunlight. 

Ella would not do well in a house with young children, so older kids who understand how to be gentle and very quiet would be a must, or otherwise a grown-ups only household. Ella needs humans who will give her the time she needs and are able to put a lot of time into her but is also able to give her her space and let her come to you instead. Someone who understands what to expect from a sweet, shy kitten.  

You will find more pictures of Ella and her mum and sister here and videos here.  

Ella has been microchipped and has had her first set of vaccines. She will need to be neutered when she is older.

Tom Kitten (M) HC4495

Age: 16 weeks

Tom Kitten is one of three gorgeous, purry, playful kittens all rescued from underneath a container where they were living in a large colony. 

He's the only boy but he stands up for himself and doesn't let his sisters bully him!  He is very friendly and extremely tolerant of lots of cuddles and strokes even from small humans.

We would like him to go to a family with gentle children 5 years and over with someone around for most of the day while he is young.

He has always been a little bit sneezy but he has been thoroughly checked by our vets and it's not cat flu or anything infectious and quite possibly something he will grow out of.  It was likened to mild hay fever.

Tom is fully vaccinated and micro-chipped.

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OUR CATCHMENT OR DON'T HAVE A PRIVATE GARDEN


Frankie Balboa (M) HC4505

Age: 10 weeks
Frankie Balboa is related to Charlie Bond

Spoiler alert! 

Cuteness overload! Hi I’m Balboa, Frankie Balboa. I am Charlie Bond's brother. My name comes from my posture of standing on my back legs when I’m fighting and playing. which makes me look a super cute mischief. I’m fearless, I don’t even fear the monster called hoover. When I discover new things I would call my brother to join me. I am always busy jumping, playing all day and running around to catch toys and toes! 

I’m first to be awake and go on adventures. I had my first very loud purr after I climbed on a top of the cat tree. Now I’m busy attacking the sofa, I just stopped  to see if you need help catching that fly.

Frankie and Charlie must be homed together.  They would be fine for a family with children over 5 years of age.

Charlie Bond (M) HC4506

Age: 10 weeks
Charlie Bond is related to Frankie Balboa

Spoiler alert! 

Cuteness overload . Hi my name is Bond, Charlie Bond. I came into foster care with my brother Frankie as an adorable tiny kitten, I have grown into my very fluffy tuxedo. I was first to eat big boys food and first to plan 'The great escape' into the living room. I take my brother, Frankie, for adventures around the house now. We are into lots of mischief together,  playing, fighting, jumping and running around.  When my foster mum tickle my tummy, I grab her finger and ferociously start to lick her. 

We play 'catch me if you can' all day. When I sleep, you can literally drill next to me and I just don’t care. And now please excuse me, I have no time for pictures, I need to help my brother to attack the big enemy, the Sofa!

Charlie and Frankie must be homed together.  The would be fine for a family with children over 5 years of age.

Joan Jet (F) HC4510

Age: 17 weeks
Joan Jet is related to Lesley Delilah

Joan Jett a bit more timid than Lesley and Delilah, possibly because she's from another litter.  She is long limbed and sleek.  She's a bit shy but looks at you in a way that suggests she wants to be friends but isn't quite ready. She would suit a quiet, adult household, with an understanding family that will be patient with her. 

She would make a nice companion for a resident cat as she seems to get on with all the other cats in her foster home.

Joan will have started her vaccinations and been micro-chipped before homing

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OUR CATCHMENT AREA OR DON'T HAVE A GARDEN

 

 



Lesley (F) HC4511

Age: 17 weeks
Lesley is related to Joan Jet Delilah

Lesley's a tiny bundle of energy.  She's the smallest of the three but eats the most! She is friendly and adventurous and has a very loud purr.  She's pretty confident and doesn't mind being stroked and picked up.  She will suit any type of household, and probably should be homed with her sister Delilah.

Lelsey will have started her vaccinations and been micro-chippd before homing.

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE OUR CATCHMENT AREA OR DON'T HAVE A GARDEN

 



Delilah (F) HC4512

Age: 17 weeks
Delilah is related to Joan Jet Lesley

Delilah is fierce and feisty.  She's not quite as friendly as Lesley but she's just as confident and adventurous.  She doesn't let you pick her up or stroke her, simply because she doesn't sit still for long enough! 

She would suit any type of household, as long as her new family respect her boundaries, and probably should be homed with her sister Lesley.

PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOUR ARE OUTSIDE OUR CATCHMENT AREA OR DON'T HAVE A GARDEN

 


Ebony (M) HC4525

Age: 9 weeks
Ebony is related to Opal

Ebony is a strapping all black, adventurous boy who likes nothing better than playing with his sister Opal and exploring all the boxes in the kitten room. He is very fond of toys and the scratching post where he balances on the top until Opal pushes him off. He is perhaps the friendliest kitten we have had and will snuggle into a lap or climb up onto a shoulder to play with earrings.

Ebony must be homed with his his sister Opal

He will have started his vaccinatons and been micro-chipped before adoption.

WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY OUT OF AREA ADOPTION APPLICATIONS.  WE ONLY HOME KITTENS WHERE THERE IS A SECURE REAR GARDEN.

 


Opal (F) HC4526

Age: 9 weeks
Opal is related to Ebony

Opal is very petite. She is all black except for a tiny smudge of white on her chest. She has a huge appetite but that all goes into energy to play with her brother rather than getting any bigger. Although little she gives and good as she gets. She is still quite timid and should be rehomed with her brother who gives her confidence. She could rehomed with older sensible children who understand that she needs time and space to get to know her new humans.

OPAL MUST BE HOMED WITH HER BROTHER EBONY

She will have started her vaccinatons and been micro-chipped before adoption.

WE CANNOT ACCEPT ANY OUT OF AREA ADOPTION APPLICATIONS.  WE ONLY HOME KITTENS WHERE THERE IS A SECURE REAR GARDEN.


 


Kimba (M) HC4539

Age: 6 years

Kimba is 6 year old Birman who has lived with an elderly owner who can no longer look after him.  He has been kept as an indoor cat and can be quite boisterous, probably due to being kept indoors. but is a pretty well mannered cat.  He would benefit from being allowed to go out into a secure garden even if just under supervision.  Communal gardens are not suitable.

He likes company and will sit near you, to date he has not sat on laps.  We think he would benefit from being in a relaxed adult home  but not with children as he hasn’t had any exposure to them, nor with dogs as he has never met one.

The owner had him on renal food as a previous test showed a minor kidney issue.   His results as at 17th November are good and there has been no change from the last tests which were over a year ago so to make sure it stays like this the vet recommends he continues with the renal diet. If a potential adopter has any concerns the vet would be happy to speak to them. 

Kimba has moved to a foster home and is setling in well  so we will update his profile once we know him better.

He is neutered and vaccinated.
