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!
This majestic all black longhair boy came to us from Canary Wharf and has been clearly abandoned. He is 2-3, so a young adult full of promise, very street smart and quite a strong character. We just had him neutered so we expect his friendly nature will shine through even more now.
Zorro would be perfect to a home with plenty of outside space where he can still be spending his idle hours, and a family who will not need a lap cat from day 1 as he is not that yet, he is too young and too busy! Having said that, he is a clever, alert boy who can fend for himself and know which side his bread is buttered :-)
Adult-only homes or even families with respectful children used to cats would be ideal, we do not believe Zorro would appreciate his tail or fur pulled or being chased around the house! This is one cat who will need a bit of time to settle into his new environment and will enjoy being solo. He is the type of cat you will not feel guilty leaving behind to go to work. A lovely, all-rounder, he will also be fine as a starter cat, but remember, not a lap cat from day one.
6 Year old Soda has been a treasured family pet but recently has struggled to cope in a large multi cat household - she is now looking for a forever home where she can live a pampered life as a solo kitty.
This beautiful girl is a friendly, sociable cat who adores human company, in fact she much prefers humans to other cats! Her ideal home would be one where there were people with her to interact with throughout the day, making her an ideal family cat. She gets on well with children although should not be homed to families with toddlers.
One of Soda's favourite things to do is play with interactive toys and feathers such as Da Bird. She's not a cat who will sit in the background - she's well-behaved but very active and likes to be involved in the comings and goings of the household.
Soda is an indoor only kitty with no experience of outside, as such she is not at all street savvy so will need to remain an indoor cat. She is perfectly happy with this arrangements as she also adores her creature comforts!
3 year old Lottie is a very gentle young girl who is going to make her new humans very happy! She is very nervous at the moment and will need kindness and patience to help her overcome this, underneath the shyness is a lovely, friendly girl who has a lot of love to give. Her favourite things are head tickles and a good meal!
Lottie is calm and quiet and will enjoy a forever home where there are good routines and people with plenty of time to interact with her. She will need a relatively quiet home so should be rehomed as a solo cat in an adult only household.
Lottie will certainly need outdoor space to explore once she is settled in her new home.
Chinook is an utter delight! This one year old boy is super friendly and very active.
He has a warm, sunny personality and loves humans. He is a very busy cat - always wanting to explore and have new adventures.
Chinook will be great with children and would thrive in a busy family household. He is really affectionate and likes cuddles and strokes.
As he is still young it would be great if there were people around in the day to spend time with him and he will certainly need access to a secure garden.
He likes other cats too and will seek them out for playtime - he would be a good companion to an existing cat.
Arthur is a very sweet young adult who was found as a stray and we assess his age to be 2-3. He is a gentle giant, has a very even nature and is a happy, friendly, easy-going chap. Initially reserved, he can be shy -for seconds- but is clearly desperate for some love and affection. He will come straight to you for head bumps in the morning!
Arthur was neutered on arrival and is now calm and chilled out, is enjoying the warm of his garden suite looking at the comings and goings of the team, and cannot wait until he has a warm home of his own. Arthur would enjoy some outdoor access but would also be happy with a terrace or large balcony as he won't want to go far from home. A spacious indoor home with human company would also be considered.
He is a gentle and friendly boy who will only become more so once he has strong routines in his loving and safe forever home.
This is three year old Kitty. She has been through a lot in her short life, including kittenhood in a place with a careless owner, raising her own litter of three, and three hard months of living outdoors in the cold winter. She has had a lovely home for the past year and is now a happy confident, chatty and vivacious cat who always seems like she's having a ball of a time. Sadly her owners are emigrating and have made the difficult decision not to take Kitty with them.
She is a lively, wonderful, very funny cat - she is independent and vocal and a real character. Playful and cheeky, she absolutely loves games with string and enjoys playing hide and seek! Kitty is extremely friendly, bright and engaging.
Kitty is happy in her own company and does appreciate her own space. As such, she won't mind if you have to go out to work but she will always give you a friendly greeting when you get in. When she is in the mood she is very affectionate - often demanding cuddles! You will know when she is happy because she dribbles and kneads her tail gets huge and fluffy.
She is always gentle, although she doesn't hold back at expressing herself to other cats, she would certainly be happier in a single cat. She is a born adventurer and loves exploring and roaming around outdoors so you will need to be able to offer safe outdoor access.
It is now time for Kitty to finally find a forever home where she will be safe and happy and be able to settle somewhere for good.
15 year old, Milly is looking for a safe, happy retirement home. Her previous caretakers were not able to adequately care for her but since Milly has been with us we have really enjoyed getting to know this lovely, sunny girl. She has a very affectionate nature and will happily sit with you, she loves strokes and fuss.
She can be a little demanding, particularly around food so tough love will be needed in that department. She also needs her own space and will not always want attention, this means she will suit people who have to go out to work, she will really benefit from an adult only household with a very strong daily routine.
This lovely girl will make a great companion to her new humans but does need to be a solo cat. She will also require ongoing care as she has arthritis in her back legs. This means she takes a daily supplement to ease the discomfort in her bones, as a result of the arthritis it causes her pain to be picked up.
A recent blood test show higher than normal renal values so she also has an age appropriate diet to support her renal system, she will need to be on this diet for life.
Milly is a very deserving cat who will enjoy a good old age in a caring and loving home with people who are willing to commit to her ongoing care. Catcuddles will be on hand for the rest of her life to offer support and guidance but for now our priority is to find her a warm and loving home.
Bernie is a ten month old bundle of joy! He has already been through a lot in his short life as he was rescued from the street by a kindly stranger.
He is a real charmer and has the most loveable personality, Bernie loves to be stroked and fussed. This is a shy, quiet boy who would like to lead a simple life - one where there are lots of cuddles and warm places to sleep!
Bernie gets on well with other cats so he would make an ideal companion to an existing cat. He would thrive in an adult home with people who have plenty of time to spend with him. A lovely, safe garden would be the icing on the cake but Bernie would be happy in a spacious indoor home.
Bernie cannot wait to meet you, so please contact Catcuddles today.
This is Orlando who we recently rescued as a stray. He is a really lovely, friendly cat and at two years old has already been through a lot - he has been stray for nearly a year now so was more than likely an abandoned pet.
Otherwise known as 'Big Ginger' this boy has a magnificent presence, both physically and in personality. He likes cuddles and human attention and is a happy, healthy boy. He will need to learn to trust his new humans after a difficult few months and is a little shy right now but once he gets over this he is a real charmer! We can see that once he is settled in a warm, loving home he will only become more and more confident.
In a spacious property, Orlando will do well as an indoor cat because he clearly loves his creature comforts. Ideally he would have an adult only home or a home with very sensible teenage children.
He is currently receiving treatment because he scratched his cornea getting in the carrier at the vets recently but he is recovering very quickly and there will be no lasting damage.
Orlando is a sweet natured boy - a big softie in fact. He is going to bring a lot of joy to his new humans.
5 year old Min has been through a lot in the last 6 months. She was a loved family pet for her first 4 years but when her previous owner's partner moved in, Min was privately rehomed. 6 months later, this home has now fallen through and she is at Catcuddles looking for her forever home.
Min is a delightful cat and has been looked after very well by both previous owners. She is happy and confident and loves human company. She is very calm and laid back and enjoys spending her days laying in a sunny spot bird-watching!
She loves to dash around her home, chasing squeaky toys. She is very interested in the comings and goings of daily life and has experience of older children. She likes affection on her own terms, she does not want to be picked up but does enjoy petting and stroking.
Min needs a loving home where people are often around, she can be left on her own during the day but ideally not for 9 hours plus every day. She would suit a household where someone works part time or from home. She will also be a happy, indoor cat - a balcony or terrace would be a bonus.
Bagheera is a very sweet and gentle 2 year old. She came to us with her sister Gizmo but we think she would do well separated from her sister who also steals of of Bagheera's food! She is very calm and quiet and enjoys chilling out, cuddles and strokes but also active play. Having had her at Catcuddles for two weeks now, we have observed she shows keen interest in the outdoors and so would rather she finds a home with a safe garden to potter about and explore rather than just a flat.
Bagheera is happy to sit on your lap once you settle down next to her and likes to be stroked for as long as possible! Bagheera will make a lovely friend to her new human family. Her calm nature means that she would be suited to an adult only, spacious indoor and outdoor home, or a family with children who like gentle interaction with a cat - no tail pulling please!
Mylo is a petite longhair tabby 3-year-old girl and came to us along with her son, Pickle, a gentle giant of a boy. They get along fine and enjoy the occasional play with each other. However they are not inseparable so could go their different ways as seems to be the case with Pickle reserved on his first weekend at Catcuddles!
Mylo would be suitable as a solo cat or as a companion to an existing cat, to a home that will appreciate her easy-going nature. Mylo is a sweet, even tempered girl who will make the ideal family cat. She enjoys playing with her toys and exploring in her garden. Her favourite things to do are play with interactive toys and chase anything that dangles or moves like laces or strings of wool! She is confident and affectionate and enjoys fuss and strokes. She is used to having a lot of company so a busy family house will be ideal. You will need a cat flap and a safe garden as she like to spend a lot of time outdoors when the weather is good. We have a feeling the little charmer will not be around at Catcuddles for long!
2 year old Artemis is a lovely girl looking for a quiet and peaceful forever home. She is very shy at the moment and her new humans will have to be really patient and consistent with her. It may take a while for her to trust but with good routines and a lot of love, Artemis will develop in confidence.
She is very sweet natured and responds really well to very quiet cuddle time. Her new humans should have some experience with shy cats and be able to offer a quiet indoor home without children, now or in the future.
Artemis has a beautiful, gentle personality and she just needs a lot of love and nurturing.
Siblings, Vincent and Verity (pictured) were brought to Catcuddles by some local firemen who found them abandoned near their station. When they arrived they were both suffering with cat flu which has now been treated successfully. Vincent still has a slightly runny eye and Verity has a characteristic shadow on one of her eyes but both are now healthy and no further treatment is required.
After a month in quarantine these two are desperate for some human company - they are lovely, energetic, affectionate little kittens. Vincent is a typical soppy 'mama's boy' who just loves to be cuddled. Verity is slightly bolder and likes to seek out her next adventure. Both are utterly irresistible!
These two beautiful black beauties will need to be rehomed together as they are best friends who eat, sleep and play together. Raising kittens is a lot of work so you will need to be able to offer plenty of time to play and interact with them as well as very secure outdoor space.
14 year old Bella is a very happy indoor only girl who is looking for a retirement home.
Despite her age she still dashes about like a much younger cat - she loves chasing her toys and playing.
Bella won't mind if you go out to work in the day, she loves to pass her days keeping up to date with the comings and goings outside her windows - afternoons are usually for sleeping.
She will give you a friendly greeting when you get in, she likes to be made a fuss of and picked up for cuddles.
Bella is looking for a lovely, warm indoor home - with adults or sensible teenagers only. She can't wait to meet you!
Lovely 2 year old Gizmo arrived at Catcuddles with her sister, Bagheera, but the girls are not well bonded so we feel she would be best suited to life as a solo kitty.
She is a very happy girl who will 'make biscuits' on almost everything - her favourite bed, a nice rug or your lap! Gizmo is a very confident young girl who is interested in everything that is going on around her. She loves to sit up at the windows and watch the world go by - she also loves to explore so some outside access would be lovely.
Gizmo would make a good family pet as she would enjoy the company of sensible, older children.
She does have a sensitive stomach which is controlled by her diet - Catcuddles are always on hand to give advice about diet and feeding. Gizmo will need some tough love as far as food goes because she will need to remain on her diet and not have treats or extras.
2 year old Pickle is a beautiful young boy. He has already stolen our hearts - Catcuddles love black beauties!
He is really playful and loves chasing his toys and dashing about in the garden. He is a very high energy kitty. Pickle will make a lovely family cat as he adores human company and is great around children. He is a confident, happy, sociable young boy who is also very affectionate. He loves strokes and cuddles and his favourite place to rest is head is a comfortable lap!
Pickle can be rehomed to a family with safe outdoor access either with his mother Milo or as a companion to an existing cat.
Six year old Lucy is a petite black cat, born just before Halloween in 2007. She has been a well loved pet but is now being rehomed as a last resort as she no longer gets on with the other, older, cat in the household. She much prefers the company of humans to that of other cats so should be homed as a solo princess!
She is very sweet natured, inquisitive and still very kitten-like in both her appearance and behaviour despite her age. She is very loving and affectionate and likes nothing better than receiving lots of attention and cuddles, but on her own terms as she doesn't like to be picked up or carried. What she does like is being stroked and snoozing on someone's lap.
Lucy has always been an indoor cat and has never gone outside so would be best suited to a home where she can stay inside and observe birds and other things through the windows. She is very gentle and trusting in her demeanour, making friends very quickly when meeting new people, and would make someone a wonderful pet as she's very attentive and loyal, often following you around the house to see what you are doing.
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, heart and kidneys ticking along, which she will need to be on for life. She has her annual health checks and blood test to monitor her health but she does not enjoy the trip to the vets! Along with her special diet, her maintenance costs are probably about ?50 per month more than any other healthy cat but we love her all the same. Although Hope does like to be stroked -but not fussed- she is not a lap cat, and will have no problem telling you when she has had enough attention. She's quite the independent, dignified old lady.
If you would like to help us look after Hope in her current long-term foster home, you can. We feel she is best taken care of within the Catcuddles family -we have not found a suitable home for her in 2 years- so we are asking you to consider sponsoring Hope, to help look after her.
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.
