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.

Marge (F) HC2120

Age: 8 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.


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 !!!

Heidi (F) HC3660

Age: 3 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

Please see notes on Faith


Hope (F) HC3914

Age: 2 years

Please see notes on Faith



Honey (F) HC4115

Age: 14 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.


Alice (F) HC4201

Age: 22 months

Alice was left behind, heavily pregnant, by tenants who moved away.  She gave birth to 4 kittens, and the whole family came into our care when the kittens were a few days old.

The kittens have all been homed and Alice is now looking for her forever home too. 

She is cuddly and affectionate but can be occasionally nervous.  We think she would be the ideal cat for a single person or a couple, but is likely to be overwhelmed by children.  She has recently moved to a new foster home and has settled in well and likes to play chase and run around the flat!

Alice has been spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and is ready for adoption




Rafa (M) HC4234

Age: 7 months
Rafa is related to Scarlett

Rafa is a joy to watch as he's chasing and playing with anyone willing to join in (or not), running about with his favourite rustly feather toy and growling with pleasure at his catch or vying for the best seat in the house.  When he's finished playing he's chatting and rubbing round asking for his cuddles and face rubs.  Be prepared for a wet nose and smudged glasses. 

A handsome, spirited and very affectionate and gentle boy who will grow into a big fluffy cat.  He's very curious, bright (he learnt to use the electronic feeder in under a minute) and communicative.  He'll be a wonderful companion whether on his own or with other cats, but he'll need lots of attention both for play and affection.    Our fosterer reports that Rafa is adorable but very full on as a teenager!  Once able to go outside after adoption he will calm down, but currently he needs a home that can tire him with play as he has boundless energy.

He's gentle and should be fine other cats and with sensible children.

He's becoming very handsome with his little bow tie, tufty ears, strong limbs and a gloriously fluffy tail which he carries proudly as he strutts his stuff.  He has a lovely purr.

Rafa is fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered.

BLACK CATS TEND TO BE OVERLOOKED BUT WHOEVER ADOPTS RAFA WILL BE VERY LUCKY



Scarlett (F) HC4235

Age: 13 months
Scarlett is related to Rafa

Scarlett is a lovely sleek black girl who is also a bit of a character.   We took her from an awful place along with her two brothers, who  have since been homed.   

Update from her foster home:

Scarlett has been with us for a few weeks now and has settled in really well.  She loves sitting on laps and will happily fall asleep on you.

She's having great fun with her toys and has some mad moments during the day throwing them about and chasing them.  Like most cats she also likes cardboard boxes and says       "If it fits I sits"

Her passion is food, she isn't greedy with her own food but the minute you have anything she appears and wants to share! 

She is a joy to have and will make someone a  happy cat owner.  

Scarlett has been neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

SHE WOULD PREFER A QUIETER ADULT HOME AND MUST HAVE A HOME WITH NO OTHER PETS



Ziggy Stardust (F) HC4258

Age: 16 months

We named her Ziggy Stardust after a David Bowie character as her eyes are different colours - one is amber/green and the other is blue.  She has very strong signs of some Oriental Shorthair about her, though not pure bred.  

She is quite vocal which again points to her having some oriental in her background.  She does like to have a "conversation" and will certainly let you know when she wants your attention and a fuss.

Update from foster home

Ziggy has settled in well she’s full of confidence and very loud purrs! She’s got such a personality and is so playful. She’s very chatty and she makes the cutest noises/chirps as she goes about her day.  She is a sociable little character and loves company.

Ziggy has been spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped

The photo of her in a box sums up the phrase "If it fits I sit"



Kirrin (F) HC4285

Age: 10 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



Miffy (F) HC4297

Age: 11 months
Urgent rehoming required

Miffy was rescued from the streets of Greece as a kitten of six months by her current owners. She lives with them and their three older cats (a deaf mother and her two daughters). Sadly, socialising all 4 cats to the level where they can live harmoniously has not been possible. 

Miffy is adorable, playful (and learning not to nip hands and feet), talkative, curious, super intelligent and active - she loves to run and jump. She would make a wonderful companion. 

Miffy is still adjusting to being left alone and needs someone with time and patience who can give her attention and help her to live a fulfilling life - eventually introducing her to the outdoors when she is completely settled. She loves following her owners around the home and having  cuddles - but also lets you know when she's had enough. 

Given her early life experiences on the streets she has made remarkable progress.    We think Miffy is best suited to live without other pets or small children.   She needs a  home where her new owners can dote on her and where she can feel safe. 

Miffy is fully vaccinated.  spayed and  microchipped. She has a completely clean bill of health.



Fred & Ginger (M) HC4323

Age: 11 weeks

Fred and his sister Ginger are the most adorable pair of kittens. They had a hard start in life as they were found hanging in a tangled football net. They made an amazing recovery and are super friendly. They would be great family pets. They are very well handled and love people. Must go together as they are very bonded. 

Foster home says:  They really are very sweet kittens. Please  consider this pair as we are getting very attached to them and our resident cat is a bully and wouldn't  put up with them.

Please don't overlook them because they are black - they really are the sweetest pair with far nicer personalities than some of the pretty colours we've had before.

They will have started their vaccinations and been micro-chipped before homing.

FRED AND GINGER MUST BE HOMED TOGETHER

 


Binky (F) HC4327

Age: 18 weeks
Binky is related to Bob
Must be homed with Bob

Binky is a sweet and friendly kitten, she gets on well with her sibling Bob, they play and sleep together and spend most of their time with each other.

She gets on well with the adult cats in their current home and is very happy to get involved in very energetic play and play fighting/chasing.

Binky and her brother Bob must be homed together and would be fine for a family with older children.

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


Bob (M) HC4328

Age: 18 weeks
Bob is related to Binky
Must be homed with Binky

Bob is the larger of the two siblings. He is slightly more shy than his sister Binky but quite happy around people and older childlren.  He is growing in confidence as he gets older is very energetic and is taking great interest in what is going on in the garden.

He is  bonded with his sister, they play together all the time and sleep curled up with each other so must be homed together.  

Bob will have started his vaccinations and been micro-chipped before homing.


Bebe (F) HC4338

Age: 12 months

Bebe is a 1 year old Russian Blue cross.   She is friendly and affectionate wth adults but since her owner has recently had a baby, she is not a happy cat, so the difficult decision has been made to find her a home more suited to her needs.

Her ideal home would be with adults only or a family who have much older children say 10 years plus.  She would prefer to be the only pet.

Bebe is up to date with her vaccinations and has been spayed.
