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 (eg for Egyptian rescues) 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 arrange a home check or to view specific cats you may be interested in, please email or leave a message on our voicemail 077 077 99 007 (or text us on the same number).  Please 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.

LOCKDOWN UPDATE: Because of social distancing requirements and our set-up which is essentially home-based, we are still unable to rehome any of the cats currently in our care.  Sorry!


NB: Some of the cats may have been listed for some time so, especially in the case of kittens, they will be older and bigger!


Smudge - Special Needs Cat

Smudge is one of our Special Needs cats and needs a special home with a special family. Smudge is totally blind, he has shrivelled retina, and our vet says he cannot even see light or shadow. So his world is totally dark. Unbelievably, Smudge was living on the streets, his family had a new dog and he was pushed out. He was also unneutered.  Can you imagine his terror? Unsurprisingly, it has taken many months of tlc for him to learn to trust again and also to gain confidence in moving around. He
has been confined to one room so he can learn its layout and he now can climb and move his way around it. He is now starting to want to expand his horizons and we feel he is ready for the next stage of his life. Smudge is very chatty and loves his food and will let you know when he is feeling peckish! 

So what sort of home does Smudge need? Firstly, indoor or mainly indoor (could have a small, safe garden with high fence panels); no other pets; an uncluttered house (where the furniture is not moved around every 5 minutes 🤪); and no young children. He would ideally suit an adult only home and would be fine with a couple/individual out at work all day although I think he would love someone at home to help his confidence even more. We realise we have set the bar high but I'm sure you can understand why! 

For further info please email and make sure you read the blurb at the top of this page!

Petal and Tansy

Petal is a small, grey & white cat, aged about 2 yrs and Tansy is her black & white daughter, aged about 14 mths.  Both cats are neutered, chipped and fully vaccinated.

They came in from a large group of cats on a caravan site.  Petal can be a little shy to start with but we are sure she will blossom in a home.  Tansy is more confident and likes to play with toys.

We are ideally looking for an adult only home for this pair where someone is around a lot during the day and continue to give these two a little more 1-2-1 attention.  They won't be instant lapcats but in due course will be loving companions in the right home.

Nancy - from Rags to Riches

As you can see from the picture on the left, Nancy came into our care as a grossly neglected cat - thin, heavily matted and full of flu.  Once she was dematted she weighed only 2.2 Kg.  It has taken several months for Nancy to recover and for her fur to regrow but we are pleased to say she is now well on the way to full health and ready for a new home.

Nancy is approximately 9 yrs old and is spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated.  As a longhaired cat, she needs to be regularly groomed and for that reason we are suggesting an adult only home that is not too busy and there is time to give Nancy a brush.  The only other requirement is that her new guardian needs to report regularly with photos to her fanbase on Facebook!!!

One-eyed Cat with Catitude seeks New VictimOwner

Reggie is a handsome cat albeit with just one eye.  This doesn't stop him eyeing up his next victim!  Could it be you?

Reggie was the only pet of a gentleman who sadly died and was not discovered for some time.  So Reggie was left with his owner in his flat until he was rescued.  By the time he got to us he was very shut down and just liked to hide in his igloo bed.  Coaxing him to come out was a risky affair although we soon discovered he had a soft spot for Dreamies.  With a lot of patience and tlc he has turned into a much more confident cat and we are sure that, in the right home, he will prove a constant and loyal companion.

Reggie is neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated. He needs an adult only home preferably with someone rescue-experienced who will tolerate his occasional grumpiness.

Reggie is enjoying his new cat tree

 in his cat run.

MEERA UPDATE - Meera moved to live with our next door neighbours who are now moving. She lives mainly outdoors where she loves to hunt.  She is currently living rurally and therefore we do want to place her in a similar environment where she can continue to hunt (great mouser!) but will be an indoor lapcat in the evening.
