Interested in adopting?
Visiting the cats is by APPOINTMENT ONLY once we have processed your adoption enquiry.
If you would like to enquire about any of our cats please fill out our adoption enquiry form and someone will be in touch with you for a chat. Please keep in mind that we are run entirely by volunteers who do this around full time jobs and families, but we will try to get back to you as quickly as possible.
MEET OUR RESIDENTS
CHANDLER AND JOEY
- Approx 2 and 3 years old
- Need Outdoor Access
- Terrific Twosome!
Hey hey, Chandler and Joey here! We came to Pawprints when we were left behind when our hoomans moved away 🙁 We were living outside in some bushes with some kind people feeding us who helped to get us safe. I (Chandler) am a bit of a reserved gentleman who enjoys fusses and a chilled life. My annoying little brother Joey is full on enough for both of us!!! I have to tell him off at times as he likes to be the centre of attention and can be a bit of a space invader when I’m having some ‘me time’ but we’ve been through a lot together so would like to find out furever family together. Could you offer us our place to call home? 🐾
- Approx 4 years old
- Needs Outdoor Access
- Playful, cheeky and cute!
Hey, Muey here! I came to Pawprints when a kind family took me in after I had nowhere to go and got me some help. I kept getting bullied by the other tom cats. I’m a sweet cheeky playful boy who loves fusses! I’m getting stir crazy here at the rescue, I really need a safe furever place to call home with a nice garden I can play out in when I’m ready. Purrlease get in touch if you’d like to meet me 🐾
- 9-10 years old
- Needs Outdoor Access
- Chatty boy
Meeooowww, Bruce here! I came here after spending 8 whole years being fed and looked after by a kind family after I was left behind. Sadly my main feeder passed away so Pawprints came to my rescue. I’ve settled in OK here and have found my paws. My fur is growing back nicely too as I lost some of it when I was living outside. I love to chat to folk once I know them and do allow some strokes but if you go OTT I have to use the paw! The volunteers think its because I was left behind so long ago and struggle to fully trust a lot of touch but I am a sweet loyal boy and will make you the best companion as I will love to hang out with you. I’d love to be back in a proper home environment for my senior years, the volunteers say I deserve it after all I’ve been through. Can you open your heart to a slightly temperamental older fella who just wants his furever after? 🐾
- Approx 6 years old
- FIV Pawsitive
- Big Friendly Giant!
Well hello there, Lord Clawd here but you can call me Clawd! The volunteers came up with my name when I first arrived as I had really long claws. I’ve had a trim but the name stuck and I quite like it! I came to Pawprints after spending a long time on the streets trying to take care of myself. I was looking pretty rough but I’m healing now. I have to wear this silly cone or my red robe for a bit longer but hopefully I’ll be free of them soon! I am pawsitive for FIV which means my immune system isn’t quite as good as some cats but the volunteers say with a nice warm home I will be all good and they can have a chat with you to answer any questions about it. I’m a big friendly giant who loves all the fusses! Oh, and don’t get me started on food, I lurve food!!! I’d love my own home now and a cosy bed in time for the winter, can you find a Clawd shaped space in your heart? 🐾
- Approx 6 years old
- Needs Outdoor Access
- Special needs – allergies
- Random sleep spot expert!
Hey hey, I’m Larry and I started visiting my foster mum a few months ago now. I learned to trust her and she let me sleep in the warm and fed me up. I’m a bit of a special case as unfortunately I’ve been having problems with my itchy skin! Its been quite a journey and my foster mum is still trying to help me but she said I need to be in a home as an only cat or one with another allergy cat where they can help me get to the bottom of it (with Pawprints’ support) as there are another 6 cats here and I always find their food no matter where she hides it, oops! She says I’m a quirky character and am forever finding random places to sleep! I like me some catnip and a play too. I’m pretty independent, I like some fusses but also just like to be able to do my own thing. If you have the time and patience to let me get to know you and help me get my silly itching better I’ll be your loyal boy furever 🐾
*Special home/s needed*
CHARLOTTE, ARCHIE, LILI AND LOUIS
- Male and Female
- Approx 2 years old
- Shy but sweet with lots of purrtential!
We are the ‘Furmouse 4’. We used to be the ‘Furmouse 5’ but we sadly lost our brother George when he and Charlotte got poorly. Charlotte was very lucky she managed to fight the virus with the help of the vets and after lots of waiting we have been able to live together again. We came to Pawprints early last year after being born outside, we were very timid and the rescue have been working hard to build our trust. Charlotte and Archie are the most confident and both love fusses once we get to know you, Lili & Louis are still very shy but we will let you stroke us and relax more after someone spends time with us. The volunteers would love us to find our furever home/s now and continue to grow our confidence. We’ve had a catsultation and the volunteers said we may need to go in pairs which we would be OK with. Of course if anyone wanted us all a special deal could be arranged! We will need a quiet home with someone who has experience of us shy cats. Can you offer us a chance? Please fill in a form for a chat with the hoomans about us if you can 🐾
- 10 years old
- Indoor cat but possibility of safe outdoor access
- Purretty house panther!
Hello, the names Sabrina and I came to Pawprints when my hooman had to move and couldn’t take me with her 🙁 It’s taken me time to get used to all these new surroundings but my foster pawrents have been patient with me. I have an annoying kitten in my foster home I’ve had to get used to so would be OK with another cat if I had to but would prefer to be your only princess if possible! I’m a friendly lady with a touch of sass at times! I like to supurrvise my foster dad working from home, make sure he is doing his job! I was an indoor cat in my previous home with an occasional walk around the garden so I’d be happy as an indoor kitty or if you had a nice garden I might have a little sniff on occasion if the weather is nice! I’m now ready to find my special someone to give me my furever home pretty purrlease! 🐾
- Approx 7 months old
- Cheeky and sweet with a touch of sass!
Hey hey, I’m Della and I came to Pawprints when my hoomans had to go away. I’m in a foster home as the volunteers say I’m a bit young for the big pens! I love to play and run around the house! When I’m tired I also like to snuggle up with the foster pawrents for a snooze. They say I can be cheeky and get a bit carried away sometimes so I’d be better living in a home with adults or older children who understand my character. I mean, us ladies need a touch of sass every now and again to keep folk on their toes! Can you offer me my own castle to rule? Della 🐾
SEEN ANYONE YOU LIKE? PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH US VIA OUR ADOPTION ENQUIRY FORM AND SOMEONE WILL BE IN TOUCH SHORTLY TO ARRANGE A VISIT TO MEET OUR RESIDENTS
We are a rescue that mainly focuses on adult cats. However, sometimes we do have kittens looking for homes which will be stated on this page. We only home kittens once they’ve reached the age of 12 weeks and we never home a kitten under the age of 8 weeks as it goes against the animal welfare act, kittens are far too young to be away from their mother at such an age. When adopting a kitten from Pawprints you enter into an agreement that the kitten will be neutered/spayed when it is old enough (usually around 4-6 months or when it has reached 2kg) and we will be informed by our vets when this has taken place.
We are unable to home cats to anyone living on or very near to a main road or railway line, this is for their own safety. All cats are home checked (not as scary as it sounds we promise!). We appreciate that not everyone likes the idea of a home check, however, we are responsible for the welfare of the cats in our care and it would be irresponsible of us to let them go without knowing where they are going. We are not there to judge you or your decor! We are there simply to check that everything is OK, that you don’t live on a main road and that you know everything you need to know to get your cat settled in.
We will ask for your address initially so we can look up your home to make sure it is in a suitable location. If we believe it to be unsuitable, we will contact you to let you know. All final decisions are made by the rescue owner. A home check will be performed when we drop off the cat you would like to adopt to you, if everything is OK we will ask you to fill out an adoption form that signs the cat over to you. Up until this point we do have the right not to hand the cat over to you, however this only happens in very exceptional circumstances when we believe there is a risk to the cat/kitten and is very rare.
All cats adopted from Pawprints Cat Rescue come with 5 weeks free insurance from Agria Pet Insurance and have been health checked by a vet, neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have received treatment for fleas, ticks and worms. The adoption fee is to cover part of the cost. This basic care alone will cost us upwards of £150 and that’s before we add in costs of food, litter and any additional vet care. We ask for an adoption fee of £80 for our cats, which is just a fraction of what we have paid out. This enables us to carry on our work of rescuing unwanted and abandoned cats.
