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: 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 !!!

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 more 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: 3 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 and we will get back to you to answer any questions you may have.

Charity (F) HC3913

Age: 3 years

Please see notes on Faith

Hope (F) HC3914

Age: 3 years

Please see notes on Faith

Honey (F) HC4115

Age: 16 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: 2 years

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

Scarlett (F) HC4235

Age: 16 months

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.


Kirrin (F) HC4285

Age: 12 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

Mango (M) HC4315

Age: 6 months

Mango has just started to sit on his foster mum's lap but was always brave enough to snooze on the sofa within arm's reach.  He likes playing with anything shiny, or that makes interesting rustling sounds.

He is still a lttle shy until he gets to know you. 

The presence of a friendly resident cat is essential and if there are children in the family they should be 12 years or over.

Mango is neutered, vaccinated and  micro-chipped.

Piccolo (M) HC4326

Age: 6 months

This friendly little kitten was handed in to one of our vets with a wound on his head that is now completely healed.

We have called him Piccolo - he has only been in his foster home a little while and this is what they say about him

Piccolo is a darling little 7 month old boy. He’s extremely friendly and affectionate and purrs all day long. He loves to be picked up and cuddled and adores playing with his favourite toys. He’s quite petite with a kitten face still, he’s a dream! Piccolo is a bit shy with new people but once he’s settled in (he does not need very long!) he’ll soon show his true playful, loving self. He’s previously spent time with an older kitten and played nicely.

We think he would make the perfect  pet for a family with older children.  

He has been neutered,  started his vaccinations. been treated for fleas and worms and micro-chipped.

Rosalie (F) HC4340

Age: 10 months

Rosalie is named after a lady who sadly died and her cat themed jewellery was donated to HAWs to sell to raise funds for the charity.  Her litter of 4 was then give 4 names of red rose varietals. 

Rosalie really is the most delightfully friendly cat and has been a fantastic mother for one so very young when she had her kittens.  She loves people, is desperate to go outside, is confident, playful and talkative if she thinks it will result in food!  She's intelligent and so very good with her babies and has enjoyed playing with them.  Rosalie will be best suited to an active home with children who will play with her and have access to the outdoors. As she has enjoyed playing nicely with her kittens as they get older and sleeping with them we will happily consider a home with an existing male cat. 

Rosa is still very young, and strictly speaking a kitten still herself.  Everyone who has met her has fallen in love with her and said how sweet she is and she loves to play too. Her foster owner was a little taken aback when Rosalie recently learnt how to open the fridge when she knew there was cooked chicken in there!!

She will be chipped, spayed and vaccinated before being adopted.

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.

"Little Lexie settled in our foster home straight away. She is a tiny little thing, but has the loudest pur we have ever heard! She is a confident kitty and makes us laugh so much! She's calm but loves to have a play. She is very curious and follows you around everywhere, even into the loo! She comes up for lots of fussing and loves head butting your hand. She is not yet ready to sit on our laps, but we believe when she gets to know us a little better she will consider it. 

We think she must have belonged to someone before - she is used to the noises around the house (loud talking, the TV, flushing the loo, hair dryer etc), and she is not afraid of humans. 

She would make a lovely pet in a calm household. She's not keen on big groups or children (tried both of these), so somewhere calm and safe where she can also get away from it all for a nap and some reflection on the meaning of life. She cannot live with other cats, she is a one cat kind of cat" 

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