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

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

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


Flash (M) HC4355

Age: 3 years
Urgent rehoming required

Flash is being overlooked, possibly because he is black as they always seem to be the last to be chosen and because he's 3 years old which in reality is still very young.

Flash is a very affectionate big boy who loves chiling out in front of the TV.   He loves careful cuddles and is very chatty.  He was handed in as a stray and he has been starved of attention so loves relaxed one on one time.  This is when he is at his purry best.  He settlles well at night and is very clean.    Due to his size and strength we would not home him with young children or other pets.   

Flash has obviously lived in a house before and is used to domestic living noises.  It's very sad that he chooses to sleep on hard floors and does not seem used to the home comforts that other cats take for granted but we are sure that will soon change.    He needs a lot of personal space and would no doubt benefit from a house and fair sized garden.

Flash will make someoone the most lovely companion.   All our vet nurses have fallen in love with him and were sorry to see him leave for a foster home.

He has been neutered and is fully vaccinated.
