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: 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.  



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

Cassie (F) HC4374

Age: 5 years

Cassie was being fed in a local park by a kind member of the public who would have kept her but already had pets.  She has recently moved to a foster home and this is what they say about her.

Cassie is the most gorgeous little black panther, the photos do not do her justice! She’s very chatty and extremely friendly, always looking for fuss and a cuddle. If she can snuggle up close to you, she will! She was quite shy to start with but once she settled her personality started to show as well as her playful side - she loves her toys! She won’t hesitate to wake you up in the morning with little face nudges.  

Cassie would suit a family without small children as she likes the peaceful life!  

We decided to call her Cassie after Cassandra, the alter ego to Batgirl as the silhouette of her head is just like batman! 

Any family would be lucky to have this little panther in their home.

Cassie is neutered, has started her vaccinations and been micro-chipped.


Kofi (F) HC4383

Age: 5 years

Kofi came into our care due to her owner's change of circumstances which means she couldn't keep her.  She came in with another cat Zara but they don't get on.  She is pure black, has a slightly fluffy coat and a pretty face.

She is  nervous of people she doesn't know but once she feels secure she enjoys a fuss.  We think she would be best suited to a quiet adult only home.

She's very partial to catnip so catnip toys would make her feel at home when she's adopted.

Kofi is neutered, chipped and has started her vaccinatons.


Honey (F) HC4392

Age: 12 years
Urgent rehoming required

Honey was adopted from us originally but sadly her owner is having to leave the country and because of a long quarantine period she doesn't feel it would be fair to put her through that.

Honey is a Snowshoe with blue eyes.  She is very friendly and affectionate, loves a lap and watching TV with her human and cudding up at night.    She loves those little sponge scourers and takes them wherever she is - don't ask us why because we don't know !!  She likes watching birds from the window but has never caught one.

Her ideal home would be with a retired person who would give her all the attention she wants.  Honey will come with everything a pampered puss could possibly want including cat climbing and scratching castles, lots of toys, an electric blanket, a carry cage and a cat bed

She has a little arthritis in her back leg but to make sure she hasn't any pain she has a small dose of metacam (cat paracetamol) in her food each day.  This is not expensive so no need to worry about the cost.

Honey is neutered, micro-chipped and up to date with her vaccinations.





Maisy (F) HC4401

Age: 6 years

Maisy is a very pretty tabby who has come into our care due to a young child developing an allergy to her. Her family are very sad they have had to rehome her and this is what they say

Maisy is a gorgeous, loving and friendly cat. She loves the comforts of home, sitting on a sunny windowsill, or layed out on a rug, snuggling in her bed or on the sofa. Maisy is used to children and would like to have a little play now and then. Her favorite thing to do in the evening is to curl up on a lap and get lots of strokes. Maisy likes it in the garden and will go on a little outdoor adventure, but will always remain close by. She was a little bullied by neighbourhood cats as a kitten, so is more relaxed in her territory or in the garden with her human friends. When it gets close to dinner time Maisy will let you know that she is hungry and her little vocals appear.  

She would love to be in a warm and friendly home with someone who will give her lots of lap time, strokes and care. She is very affectionate with a kind nature and will bring lots of joy.

Maisy is neutered, chipped and vaccinated and is looking forward to meeting her new family.
