Rescue

 Homing Policy & Area we Cover

As many of our cats have come to us through unhappy or unsafe circumstances, we naturally want to make sure as far as possible that they are being rehomed to people and places where they will be happy and contented for the remainder of their lives.  For that reason, we do insist on doing a home check before you adopt the cat or cats you are interested in.  However, it may be possible to view the cat you are interested in prior to a homecheck.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

 At the moment our area of operation is mainly confined to around Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Wadhurst, Crowborough and Heathfield (and all villages in between).  So those are the areas we can easily home check and support our cats in the settling in phase. 

----------------------------------------------------------------

All our cats are vet checked, fleaed, wormed, neutered if old enough, microchipped and will have at least the first stage of the vaccination done.  This all costs a lot so we do ask for a financial contribution towards this.  Our current Adoption Fee is £55 per cat/kitten unless otherwise stated but if you can spare a little more, it will go to help bring in another cat off the street.

Our helpers are all volunteers, giving of their spare time to rescue and rehabilitate our cats and kittens.  All the money we raise therefore goes where it is needed - to help the animals.

Please note that we do not have a sanctuary or centre.  All our cats and kittens are fostered by volunteers either in their own homes or in purpose-built cattery pens in their gardens.  So you need to make an appointment to view at a mutually convenient time. If we haven't homechecked you beforehand we do require some basic info, at the very least a full address and telephone number, preferably landline, as we will be sending you into someone's home. 

To view specific cats you may be interested in, please email streetkatzinfo@gmail.comPlease leave a landline telephone number if at all possible.

Rehoming kittens:  we prefer to rehome young kittens in pairs or a mum with one kitten. They settle in more quickly, are less stressed and fearful, play and sleep together and are company for each other if you are out at work all day. 


 

JENNY


Jenny is a small, spayed and chipped female cat aged 15-16 yrs. She is pretty deaf we think and a little unsteady on her paws but likes to find a sunny spot outside to soak up some rays.  Like many senior gals she can be a little grumpy at times but is friendly and affectionate.  
  
We are looking for a retirement home for Jenny with no other pets and a very safe and secure garden. She has just had her first vaccination and has been blood tested.

Jenny needs brushing to stop her fur becoming matted. She does best on a mixed diet including hypoallergenic or anallergenic biscuit.

Wonky



Wonky came into us as a long term stray, unneutered and with a bad limp. In spite of life on the streets for several years, he has retained his affection for human company.  Now neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated and around 7-9 yrs old, he is an affectionate and people friendly boy and is ready for his furever home as an only cat.

Wonky is currently being fostered in Cousley  Wood.

His fosterer says,"I think Wonky would suit a dog owner best as a dog could potentially keep him company and his temperament is most similar to a dog in terms of human attention requirements, and a dog owner would be able to keep up with his constant needs as he is so attention hungry. Or someone who has alot of time on their hands who can give him the attention he needs."  (Please note  Wonky is untried with dogs.)  Safe location and secure garden essential. 

Milo

 


Milo is a 9 month old tabby boy, neutered, chipped and with his first vaccination completed.  He came in with his sister, a ginger female called Molly, as an owner surrender.  


Milo is friendly but a little unsure so isn't suitable for a family with small children.  Older children would be fine or an adult only home.


Boys like Milo don't do well in pens so we hope you can open your heart to this lovely boy.


Direct access to a secure garden in a safe location is essential.

Ned & Biscuit

Ned and Biscuit came into our care following an owner surrender.  They are 3 years old and are neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated.  Ned has had a partial dematt.

Biscuit is the double white moustache, Ned the single white moustache on the right side of his nose.  

Initially, Biscuit was the more confident and Ned found the move into a foster home quite unnerving so he tended to hide away.  Now, the situation is somewhat reversed with Ned finding his paws and demanding all the attention.  His foster mum now feels they would be best separated as otherwise poor Biscuit will never get a look in.  

They need direct access to a secure garden in a safe location.  Adult home(s) only with someone who has time to groom them!

Location: Chuck Hatch

Taco and Tamale



Tamale came into our care heavily pregnant and gave birth shortly afterwards to three kittens.  Sadly, two did not survive and Taco became a much loved only kitten.  Look at the close bond they share.


Taco is still quite small for her age but is now spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated as is her mum.   Tamale is now around 2 yrs and Taco is 7-8 mths.


These two are very friendly and affectionate and must go as a pair.  They would be fine in a family with older children or in an adult only household.


Direct access to a secure garden in a safe location is essential.


Foster location: Rusthall


Simba and Chase



Simba and Chase came from the same household as an owner surrender.  Simba is a tabby & white male about 9 mths now and Chase, the grey, is just over 2 yrs.  Both boys have been neutered, chipped and are fully vaccinated.


Simba is very friendly and confident and will quickly come to you although he can be a little nervous at first.  Chase is also very friendly but much more reticent - you will often only see him at mealtimes and he tends to hide away in between times.  So with this pair, you will have a fairly instantly friendly one and a shyer one who will need a little bit of work to help him come out of his shell.  A quiet adult home would be preferred especially if someone was at home during the day to work a little with Chase.


Both boys are very gentle and Simba has the most velvet of fur.


A safe and secure garden away from busy roads is essential.



Angel



Angel is a very pretty blue and cream tabby female, aged around 2 yrs old.  She is spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated.


Angel has lived with other cats before but does best on her own.  She loves 1-2-1 attention and lets you know if you are not providing enough!  So a single adult working from home or an active retired adult or couple would be ideal.  You will have to be prepared to give up life as you know it!!  Angel will definitely have the upper paw.


A safe and secure garden away from busy roads is essential. 



Maple



Maple is a very sweet female cat who came in as an underweight stray from Gillingham.  Initially, it was thought she was around 7 yrs old but she was found to have horrendous teeth and the vets estimated that she was older than that.  However, she doesn't really act like a typical oldie so we think she might be around 11 or 12.


Maple has now had 6 teeth removed and is chipped and fully vaccinated.  She seems to have been spayed already.  She is very friendly and affectionate with a lot of kitten years left in her.  Like many torties, she likes life on her own terms and her ideal home would be 1-2-1 with no other pets.


Maple's new home will be with direct access to a safe and secure garden away from busy roads.

Mickey



Mickey is a large tabby male cat who, now neutered, has turned into a chatty boy slowly revealing his inner kitten!


Mickey still has a tendency to dominate and be a bit of a bully although that is reducing as his testosterone levels subside.  He is proving quite a good uncle to kittens so in the future he could probably live with one or two little furballs but for now we recommend he be an only cat.  He would suit having a safe rural environment to explore.


Mickey is neutered and chipped but not yet vaccinated.  We don't know his age but we think he is around 5 yrs old.


When he first came in he had a tendency to nip and, although he is ok now, we won't rehome to a family with young children.  


UPDATE - Mickey has turned into a super cat - no longer a bully and loves to give hugs.

Coco-Bagheera - on hold

Coco came into our care about 8 years ago as a heavily pregnant cat. She gave birth to six kittens, three of which were cream seal points. Sadly five died but one survived and turned into the most stunning seal point ragdoll X. Rosko and Coco (renamed Bagheera) went to live with a kind lady on a narrow country lane but, so sadly, Rosko was run over. Bagheera survived and became the sole house cat but circumstances in the house changed and Coco-Bagheera no longer had the 1-2-1 attention she craved. So she developed behavioural issues, some of which had a physical cause and Coco was diagnosed with pancreatitis. 

Pancreatitis is very manageable with good quality food.  Since coming back into our care we have worked with getting Coco onto a diet she is well on and also tried to broaden her diet to include some wet food.  This has proved very successful and we feel Coco is ready to move back into a home of her own.  Her stress-induced behavioural issues have also resolved.

Coco is an Oriental X so not hugely happy with other cats around. She is neutered and chipped but not currently vaccinated.  Her ideal home would be a single adult home where she has an adoring human servant.   She likes to sleep on your bed.  She is a quiet cat that sleeps a lot so would be happy to be left during the day while you are out at work.  

Bagheera - little black panther 


Bagheera is a very sleek black panther, aged about 3 yrs old.  She came into us with another cat from the same household as they were very bonded.  Hmmm, well they were for about 5 minutes but we had to separate them after that.  It may have had something to do with Bagheera not being spayed and in season ...  Needless to say that little detail has been sorted!!


Bagheera is something of a Houdini so her new family will have to be extra careful of doors and windows being left open.  She will be out and gone. We have learned this by bitter experience, ahem.  Fortunately, she seems able to find her way back fairly well. However, for this reason she will not be rehomed anywhere near a busy road. 


Bagheera is very playful and will chase her tail and toss her toys up in the air.  She is friendly and affectionate and would make a great family pet in a calm household. The empasis is on calm!! Even our vet said she needed a quiet house!!!  We think now she is spayed she will be fine with another cat.  She is also chipped and vaccinated and has recently had a dental.  

Felix - sweet little black & white kitty



Felix is a very sweet 13 yr old cat who is quite independent and chatty.  She loves to have access to outside so a safe garden is essential.  Felix is spayed, chipped and vaccinated.


Felix is rather nervous around other cats so would need to be the only cat in the household.  Untried with dogs.  Definitely no young children so preferably an adult only household or a family with older children.


Felix is unusual in that she will come to her name when called - no selective deafness here!! So we would recommend keeping her name at least until she has settled with you and will come to your voice when you call her.


Felix has been blood tested and she is just one point over normal in terms of kidney function. She also needs a steroid injection every 3 mths.  She is therefore eligible for our Golden Oldies Scheme.


Please read our Homing Policy at the top of this page and all enquiries for preference by email to streetkatzinfo@gmail.com 

BOY CAT - does what it says on the tin!




Boy Cat and his sidekick, Girl Cat, were left behind when their owners moved away.  Both were unneutered.  After some time, kind neighbours contacted another rescue who neutered both but had no room to bring them in.  Neighbours continued to feed them but Boy Cat appeared one day limping badly and it was thought he had been clipped by a car.  One of our volunteers picked him up and took him to the emergency vets but fortunately nothing was broken although he continued to limp for a while.  Needless to say, we took him into our care.


Boy Cat is a very sweet puss cat, quite independent although he doesn't mind the other cats around, he just does his own thing.  We think he is probably around 6 or 7 yrs old.  He is neutered and chipped but currently not vaccinated.  


Boy Cat loves to be outdoors and is currently enjoying a lot of rural space to explore.  So a safe location with direct access to a garden is a must.


Boy Cat would love a family of his own where he will be fussed over and fed lots of lovely food!
