Adopting a cat is an immensely rewarding experience and you can really make a difference. Here are a few of the kitties we are lucky to have at Catcuddles. Check out our feline friends that are ready and raring to go!
These sweet dog-friendly youngsters are very much at home both indoors and out, having been born to a feral mum over 2 years ago. Slowly, the volunteers gained their trust and they are now ready for their big adventure in their new forever home.
Savannah is a cheeky affectionate black & white girl with big beautiful round eyes and, like Adamson, very good with dogs. Adamson is a bit more shy to begin with and loves his doughnut bed, belly rubs and cuddles, fuss and general pampering. He would be the ideal feline spa enthousiast! A gentle, loving, chilled out adult home is what we dream for them both, with a lovely garden to explore.
Are you up for the privilege of a life with this wonderful pair?
Hope is a beautiful senior cat who is deaf and blind, and on medication which she takes very well. This doesn't stop her from keeping to her daily routine of long grooming sessions, naps and pottering about indoors (and in the garden, weather permitting).
Hope is on medication to keep her blood pressure down and kidneys ticking along, which she will need to be on for life. This needs to be taken into account and along with her diet, her maintenance costs are probably about ?50 per month more than any other healthy cat but that doesn't stop us from thinking she is adoptable!
As she is deaf and blind, she will need to be an indoor cat with possible supervised access to a fenced garden and will need routine in her life. We are looking for an experienced and compassionate home for Hope who will not mind giving more than they take back from her and great contentment in knowing they are helping a cat where most others cannot.
Although Hope does like to be stroked -but not fussed- she is not a lapcat, and will have no problem telling you when she has had enough attention! Hope can be homed as a solo cat, but we would also consider her to be homed as a companion cat, so long as she is not expected to be companionable. She's quite the independent, dignified lady!
Alternatively, if you would like to help us look after Hope stay in her current volunteer foster home, you may consider sponsoring her. If you need more info, please let us know, we would be happy to share the responsibility and keep you updated of how she is doing!
Elgar, an older kitten at just under 1 year old, is cautious but curious which we are using to our advantage in helping him trust us. He is making excellent progress and still has some way to go but he is mellowing with time and patience. He is a very clever boy and understands how a hiss or a swipe will keep some away, so whenever he isn't sure about someone's intentions, he'll use his behaviour to put them off.
We believe that, with time to adjust to his loving forever home, Elgar will blossom into an affectionate, playful and energetic young cat. He is growing into a cheeky boy who is still more comfortable with his playmate Eddison than us; he would therefore make a great companion cat. A few weeks of love and bonding will turn Elgar into a lovely young life companion, so long as you give him this time. A home with Eddison would be ideal.
A garden is also a must for Elgar and only calm older children who are used to feisty cats would be considered. An adult home is an ideal home for this boy.
Eddison will probably need a few more weeks' patience to build his trust but is gentle and gorgeous looking (this picture does not do him justice). He is a longhair boy of just under 1 year of age, very mellow and quiet, gentle, and a lovely companion to other cats who he still finds more interesting than us humans (we would not blame him, he has excellent taste in his mates!). He is best friends with Elgar.
He is street smart and loves the outdoors. We would love him to be homed as a companion cat to an cat or find a home with one of his buddies, possibly Elgar who he seems to be spending lots of time with. A garden would be a must for this boy, and his new home will need to be committed to daily grooming and probably a twice-yearly professional groom if needed.
Tinker is a 17 year old black and white, neutered female. She had uncontrolled hyperthyroidism and was given up as her owner wasn't coping with having to give her tablets.
She has been taking her medication without issue and is now stable.
She will need medication for life and regular check ups with a vet . She is very sweet girl, purrs pretty much continually and loves attention.
Could you give this special elderly lady a home so she can enjoy her twilight years?
Henry and Maud are a 7-year old brother-and-sister pair who are new to CatCuddles. They are friends and do get on but are not inseparable so could be homed together or separately. The pair are growing familiar with the team and are showing their true beautiful colours. They are gorgeous and gentle, needing only the mildest of encouragement to start purring for England! Not a mean bone in their body and gorgeous cats too.
They may get easily spooked by loud noises such as hoovering, like many cats do. Despite this they are very loving and affectionate and once they bond with their forever family we foresee they will soon revert to being gorgeous lap cats. Henry is a big softie, tall and gentle and Maud will sit for strokes and cuddles for hours, a very quiet girl who will happily stand in her brother's shadow. Both kitties will require lots of attention and a stable home routine to blossom as we know they will and deserve to.
The pair both enjoy exploring outside so they will need safe secure outdoor access. They have lived as companion cats to other kitties in the past so could well be re-homed to a family with an existing cat; they are overall a very tolerant easy-going pair in need of love and affection, more than your average cat.
Henry is highly allergic to fleas so particular care will need to be given to him and he needs regular, strong flea treatments. He also has a delicate tummy but CatCuddles will give you all the advice you need to manage this; it is managed very well here. Both cats enjoy a range of wet and dry food. Henry and Maud will make delightful, calm and friendly companions and they really do deserve a peaceful, loving forever home.
Our 11 year old Henry is a delightful Tabby DSH who is a truly affectionate fellow. He enjoys strokes and cuddles and given time to adapt, he'll trust you enough to curl up on your lap. He is looking for a calm, loving forever home - he is not used to noise or a busy household, so high energy young families would probably not be his cup of tea.
We feel Henry is unsuitable for a home with existing pets as he is not used to sharing his humans. Playful Henry enjoys chasing little toy mice or other small cat toys. He will, however spend a lot of his day curled up napping on a cushion so he won't mind if you have to go out to work. We are sure he will give you a warm welcome when you come home!
In the summer he does enjoy exploring pottering about outside so a safe garden would be ideal - he can be territorial so might not get on too well with other cats. Alternatively, an indoor home with some outside space, such as a terrace or balcony may go down just as well. Henry will make a lovely companion - can you give the handsome boy his forever home?
sisters, Edith and Elsie came with their 7 mates, including Elgar and Eddison (See above) Both are just a year old and still a little shy so we are looking to introduce them to an adult only, loving home with people who can spend time with them helping them grow in trust and confidence.
The girls would make a lovely pair of feline companions to an adult home. A garden is a must as the girls would benefit from some fresh air and nature exploring together.
Edith and Elsie are fostered in North Kent and their foster mum is reporting excellent progress, They would love a visit but would mostly love a chance.
Rumba is a beautiful 6-7 month old female kitten. She originally came to Catcudles as a feral kitten, but has now come on leaps and bounds and is slowly learning that strokes and cuddles are really quite nice! She does take a while to trust people, but once she does trust you, then you will very much see a different and soppy side to her.
Because of her feral background, Rumba is a nervous kitten, and therefore, will need to be homed in an adult only home. She adores other cats so we would like her to be homed where there is already another cat or cats present. She is currently being fostered by one of our volunteers and she spends hours playing with the other cats in the house and cuddling up to them. She would also like to have access to a safe garden in a quite road once she is big enough to go out.
Ate you an experienced owner who has lots of patience and a lovely home to offer this special little lady?
Eight year old Smudge is a gorgeous Domestic Long Haired girl. She is terribly affectionate and enjoys human company. She will also want to spend time on her own as she is independent - everything will be on her terms, she will come to you for fuss and chat but then go back to her own business! She loves nothing more than to climb up high and watch the world go by from the window.
Smudge will need a quiet, without young children, with stable routines. She should also be the only pet as she has no experience of sharing her owner's affections!
Smudge will spend most of her time indoors but is inquisitive so a cat proof balcony or small, enclosed garden would be ideal. She could possibly be re-homed as an indoor kitty.
Smudge is bound to bring her new forever home a lot of love and happiness; she can't wait to meet you.
Fifi is a well loved family pet who has been taken care of excellently throughout her life. She is a seven year old domestic shorthair new to CatCuddles who is being rehomed reluctantly due to a new baby in the family. She has not taken to children so is looking for a child free forever home.
She is an excellent hunter and loves spending time outside but she also enjoys snuggling up somewhere warm to sleep. She is a little nervous, so not a lap cat yet but she does love to be stroked on her back by her tail and under her chin.
Fifi needs an experienced cat owner but will want to be a solo pet. She requires solid routines as she can be upset by anything unpredictable or surprising. She will also need someone with the patience to bring her out of her shell as she can be shy. That said she is a sweet, even tempered cat who will make a loyal companion.
Salsa has not had an easy start to life, she was abandoned young and gave birth to her kittens, Tango and Waltz on the streets of North London. Luckily the kittens were quickly rehomed but Salsa is still here at CatCuddles looking for her new home.
Salsa who is about 5 years old, is chilled out and affectionate, and needs a warm, appreciative home and a lot of love, but before that she will need a couple of weeks to settle in and develop her bond with you. We believe she could be happy as an indoor cat and is generally very sedate and calm. Often you would say she fears she may get hit as she is scared of abrupt moves - she needs humans who will be calm and patient with her so she can grow in confidence.
Salsa would be best placed in a home without children and with a family who can offer her stable routines and lots and lots of love.
Salsa cannot wait to meet you.
14 year old Milo (Black) and his best friend 10 year old Cuddles (Tabby) are currently looking for their forever home together, their previous owner could no longer care for then due to ill health. They have been well loved family pets so already have charming temperaments and are very sociable. That said they have no experience with young children so should be homed in an adult only home or home with older teenagers.
Milo walks with a slight limp and has a kink in his tail following an accident 7 years ago but it doesn't bother him at all and is not a continuing concern. Milo dislikes all cats apart from Cuddles and they are both frightened of dogs so these two will need to be the only pets in their new home.
These two are indoor only cats; they would not be able to be let outside at all unsupervised however they may enjoy access to a balcony when you are around. They love their cat naps and will want to spend their senior years somewhere safe and warm and will need love and stability in their new home. The can both be very sweet and affectionate - Milo loves to hide in bed before making himself known for strokes and hugs. Cuddles, as his name suggests, has only one hobby - cuddling! What a sweet pair they are!
Mitzy and Caesar have been well looked after family pets but sadly their owner can no longer care for them due to ill health. They are sweet, even tempered cats who need a loving forever home. Little Mitzy is a real beauty and looks and acts much younger than her 10 years. In excellent health, she has an inquisitive nature and once she settles into her new home will be very sociable. She will enjoy snuggling into your duvet at night time. Mitzy would make a great family cat. She loves her dry cat food and playing for treats. She is an affectionate girl who loves cuddles!
Mitzy is looking for a home either as a companion to an existing cat or with her best friend Caesar. 18 month old Caesar is very sociable so wouldn't want to be on his own so if not rehomed with Mitzy should be adopted as a companion to an existing cat. Caeser loves all manner of fuss and attention and he will enjoy spending time playing and exploring.
Both Mitzy and Caesar have been brought up as indoor only cats and so they should remain with only supervised access to a balcony. They will also need a dog and child free home as they have no experience with young children and are scared of dogs.
These two will bring any family years of love; do you have room for such beauties?
Six year old Daisy is a little quiet and shy right now but we believe she has been dominated by her Mum, Belle. When she is rehomed by herself she will become more and more confident. Daisy may well hide a little at first but she will come to trust you and become your best friend in time.
We believe Daisy can make a great indoor cat to both a working couple and a work-from home professional. Access to a garden would be fine but is not strictly necessary for this shy young lady. She could possibly be rehomed as an indoor only kitty.
She is a really sweet girl and deserves a calm, quiet forever home with patient and loving owners who can give her the second chance she deserves.
Lovely little Daisy is a calm, easy going, even tempered cat who can't wait to meet you.
7 year old Belle is a truly outstanding cat with a winning temperament. She will make an ideal first cat as she is outward and confident. She is inquisitive and playful so will need a safe garden to explore.
Belle is very independent and does like her own space, she will not tolerate being picked up for very long but when she wants to be is incredibly affectionate. Belle is easy going and even tempered - just the perfect cat.
20 Year old Bonny has arrived at CatCuddles after her elderly owner passed away. She is a much loved family pet who needs a quiet and peaceful home in which to spend her twilight years. She is a very good natured kitty who is loving and homely. She makes an excellent companion to her human friends but is very shy around young children and will tend to hide if they visit.
Bonny would be happy as an indoor cat as nowadays she tends to prefer her creature comforts to adventures outdoors. She will require daily grooming to keep her long hair in beautiful condition but thankfully this is something she enjoys.
Bonny loves fuss and strokes and will come to you for affection when she is ready. She is in excellent health and has had no medical issues in the past.
Can you offer this stunning senior some peace and a spot on your sofa in her old age?
4 year old Isobella is a super friendly cat; she is very affectionate and just adores cuddles. She loves to spend time in human company, often jumping up to rub heads and receive strokes.
She is a very striking cat, large for a female but not overweight and has stunning golden eyes. She has a beautiful coat - dense and soft - a true little black panther! She is a real heartbreaker.
Isobella will make the perfect family cat - baby safe, friendly with children - a great all rounder. Her confident and easy going nature means that she will quickly settle into her new home, all she wants from you is a warm loving home with safe outdoor access.
Come and visit Isobella at CatCuddles - she cannot wait to meet you.
Meowth and Jet are a brother and sister pair who are celebrating their first birthday this month. They have been well cared for in their short lives and are much loved family pets who are being very reluctantly rehomed due to a family member developing allergies.
They must be rehomed together as they are very much best friends; they play together, sleep together and groom each other regularly.
This pair are simply brilliant - very friendly cats who get on very well with young children and other cats. They are very petite in size but what they lack in stature they make up for in personality. Their favourite games involve chasing string and toy mice and, of course, exploring the big wide world outside in the day. They certainly need safe access to the outdoors as they enjoy their adventures.
In the evening, however, they love nothing more than loads of love and affection. They are happy to be picked up, stroked and groomed and they just love to be the centre of attention.
These two will bring years and years of joy to any family - they cannot wait to meet you!
Let us introduce you to a pair of heartbreakers - Woody and Winston. These year old kittens are brothers and best friends, looking for a forever home together.
This pair adore humans and enjoy interacting with them, they will always be interested in what you are doing and will more than likely try to join in. They are both loving and affectionate and particularly child friendly.
They are still young kittens so have lots of adventures ahead of them - a safe, cat proof garden is a must for these boys. They also love to play - with each other and with us humans, they enjoy all types of toys and just love fun and games.
Woody and Winston are the perfect pair of adorable young cats who would make ideal family companions or starter cats!
What wonderful boys they are - they will make any house a real home and fill it with love and joy for years and years to come.
Sisters, Kappa (all black) and Kendra (all tabby) are only 9 months old and are looking for their forever home together. They have come from a multi-cat household so get on well will other cats but are currently a little timid. With a lot of love and stable routines these two darlings will come out of their shells and become loving, affectionate friends to their new family. They both have very sweet natures so it will be easy to lavish them with the love and cuddles they need in order to grow in confidence.
Kendra is petite and has lovely big eyes, one of which has suffered a scratch as a kitten (probably by one of the other cats in the home they came from). This has healed and left a distinctive cloud on the surface of the eye. Due to this injury, her new family will need to keep an eye out for any future changes, but no treatment is currently necessary. Kendra would do well as in indoor kitty as she is petite and shy.
Handsome 8 year old Cliff is a magnificent Birman who loves nothing more than to be the centre of attention. He will happily sit on your lap and have strokes all day long! Cliff will love you forever if you can give him fuss and attention and a warm sofa to sleep on. He likes to play with fishing rod toys but mostly is looking for the quiet life. He hates noise and disruption so is looking for an adult only home with a stable routine. He likes to be spoilt with premium wet food for his tea!
Cliff will tolerate grooming but it isn't his favourite thing, nevertheless you will have to groom him regularly to keep that beautiful coat looking lovely. Due to his pedigree he should be kept either as an indoor only cat or have supervised access to a garden. Cliff will make a lovely companion - he has been a dearly loved pet who is being reluctantly re-homed. Have you got space in your home for Cliff?
Nyota is a stunning Maine Coon who was sadly irresponsibly abandoned when her owner left for Italy. She was found by kindly neighbours who rescued her after they found her living in a squat, in less than satisfactory conditions. Due to up to 2 months of neglect Nyota needs an awful lot of love, fuss and attention to bring up her confidence again but she is a gorgeous kitty with a lovely temperament.
She is quite vocal and will always greets you when you come into the room, she adores human company and will rub herself against your leg when she was food or attention. She is a young cat, but does enjoy the quiet life; she seems to spend a lot of time lying around or snoozing and has shown only sporadic interest in playing with toys. This could be because she hasn't yet been taught how to play.
Daily grooming will be essential for Nyota, she is still slightly shy about petting and grooming but since being with caring humans she is continually improving in this regard. Now she rolls onto her back and is happy to be picked up and brushed. At the moment she is protective of her tummy but in time when she learns to trust again she will allow grooming there also.
So far she is showing herself off to be good natured and even tempered. Whilst she is a large cat, with a demanding presence, she is very elegant and graceful.
Due to her pedigree she should be homed as an indoor only kitty - she will be perfectly happy as such, she will also need a child free home and a stable, loving environment. She may well be able to be homed as a companion cat in the right environment.
Nyota is simply stunning and whoever offers her the right home will be lucky to have her.
Sabrina is a DSH girl aged between 3 and 4 years. She has arrived at CatCuddles after living her short life in less than satisfactory conditions. Despite her unhappy past Sabrina loves human company. She will actively seek you out to spend time with her and is very friendly and sociable with people, once she learns to trust them. She is initially shy with strangers and is intimidated by young children so Sabrina is looking for either an adult only home or a home with mature, sensible teenagers with experience with cats.
Sabrina definitely likes people more than cats so should be rehomed as a solo cat. Her ideal home would be quiet and calm with a clear daily routine. She will also need a garden and safe access to the outside world as she enjoys exploring.
Sabrina is a very easy cat to fall for and she is bound to bring love and happiness to her forever home.
She is very much looking forward to meeting you so please do come and visit.
Nadal is three years old and is a very friendly fellow. He is cheeky and playful and full of character. He is looking for an adult only home where he can live as a solo cat with his new human's undivided attention.
Very independent, Nadal will enjoy getting out and about each day seeking fun and mischief! He is very good at entertaining himself so will be ideal for working professionals who want a furry companion waiting for them when they come home in the evening. A garden, and safe outdoor access is essential for street smart Nadal. Despite his independent streak he is also very sweet and affectionate so will want to spend the evenings with you and in human company. It is fair to say that Nadal prefers humans to other cats!
Nadal was found with a scratch on his face which is now healing nicely - he is now back to full health and cannot wait to find his forever home.
17 year old Suki is utterly charming.
She is a very affectionate girl who loves to be picked up and stroked, she also adores human company and purrs contentedly when she is spending time being fussed over by her human friends. Suki will very quickly become loving and loyal to her new family. She is very calm and even tempered but could be intimidated by small children. She is also frightened of other cats and dogs as she has been a solo pet all her life.
Suki is used to keeping herself entertained so she won't mind if you have to go out to work. She is a housecat who prefers a warm sofa to outdoor adventures so she is very happy to remain an indoor only kitty.
We think Suki is a bit of a heartbreaker and that she deserves someone wonderful to give her a loving home in her later years.
She will want to spend her old age indulging in her favourite hobbies: eating, sleeping and cuddling!
We are happy to introduce Freddy - a stunning little kitten who is celebrating his first birthday this month. Freddy thought he has found his forever home but sadly his owner has to move abroad and cannot take him with her, so he is being reluctantly rehomed as he has been a well loved family pet.
Freddy is in perfect health and has been well cared for, he is very happy and a confident, well behaved little kitten.
He is very playful, as a kitty of his age should be - he enjoys a range of toys and games. He is also affectionate and gentle; a very easy at to care for and to love. He gets on well with humans and other cats so could happily fit in with existing pets or children.
Freddy will need secure outdoor access as he loves to explore during the day - but he will be happy to come home for a cuddle in the evening!
Little Lucinda, still just a young cat herself gave birth to her darling kittens four days ago. Check back in July for an update by which time Lucinda and her kittens will be neutered and looking for there forever home..
If you are an experienced cat owner looking for a bit of a challenge and have time and patience, we have some semi feral cats that need socialising. They are still a little scared and will need some time to bond with human but deserve a chance to go to a good home....
Reasons to Adopt a Senior Cat
1. Seniors are more likely to be housetrained.
2. Seniors are less likely to chew, scratch and destroy your possessions.
3. Seniors require less patience, time and energy.
4. Seniors spend more time napping and are happy to have you join them.
5. Seniors are generally calmer and tend to settle in quicker.
6. With seniors, what you see is what you get. They have already grown into their shape and personality.
7. You will be a providing a loving home to a cat who often gets passed by for a cute kitten or puppy.
8. Most important of all, senior pets will reward you with love, affection and devotion, day after day.
Please consider adopting one of our many senior residents because older pets need love too!
The privilege of loving a senior and the knowledge that you have given this older pet a second chance at life makes it all worth the pain of eventual separation.
From time to time, we host pedigree cats for adoption. Although they are still cats at heart, pedigrees can be more difficult to care for and have different personalities (good and bad) due to inbreeding, for example, a Persian can't be left to roam outside as they do not seem to have the same safety awareness as other cats and require a lot of daily brushing and a Bengal will need a lot of interaction and are VERY affectionate but if left unstimulated they have the potential to destroy your home!
A set adoption fee will apply for these cats, as additional precaution to adopting and selling on and as with all CAtcuddles cats, they will be microchipped and neutered.
Looks alone do not make for a good adoption criterion, so we will be homing these cats to adoptive homes who have experience or adequate knowledge of the breed or have been deemed suitable for the needs of the individual cat(s) following a home visit. We have a single approach on matching the right feline temperament to the right home regardless of pedigree; we will never home a cat based on colour or looks.
