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: 5 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.  



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 purr 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

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.  



Rocky (M) HC4443

Age: 3 years

Rocky was a stray who was taken in by one of our supporters.  He was taken to a vet as had an injured paw so as he was an entire he was neutered at the same time as having his injury treated.

He has turned out to be a lovely friendly boy and we have just moved him to a foster home so we will update his profile as we learn more about his personaility.

He will need access to a secure garden on a quiet road.

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