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.

  • 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 🐾


  • Male
  • 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? 🐾

  • Shy but soppy

Hey folks, the volunteers here call me Fluff McDuff but you can call me Floofs for short! I came to Pawprints after spending the last 3 years on the streets. I was being fed by locals but no one could give me a proper home. I was really scared when I arrived, I didn’t trust all these new people especially as they took me to the VETS! I used to hiss at them but I’ve realised now that they want to look after me and I now rather love attention from those I know! I can still hide from strangers so I need a home who understands this and will give me the time get to know them and show them what a soft lad I am once I trust you. I would like to play out eventually in my new home and it would be best if it wasn’t too noisy. If you would like to meet me fill in the form thingy and the hoomans will arrange it for me 🐾


  • Male
  • 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 🐾

  • Male and Female
  • Siblings
  • Approx 2 years old
  • Shy but 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 🐾


  • Female
  • Approx 17 months old
  • Needs Outdoor Access
  • Shy but sweet

Hi, I’m Mollie. I’m a bit shy until I get to know you but love fusses once I feel safe. I did find a home earlier in the year with a family with a little person but unfortunately I found it a bit much so here I am back at Pawprints hoping for my next home to be my furever one. The volunteers say I’m a beautiful sweet lady and have special fur which is black one side and white underneath, they say its called ‘black smoke’. I’d be best suited to a fairly quiet chilled out home without little people. I haven’t had lots of experience of outside but think I’d like to have a nice space to explore eventually. Purrlease get in touch if you’d like to meet me 🐾


  • Male
  • Approx 5-6 years old
  • Needs Outdoor Access
  • Prince Charming

Hey hey, the names Jo Jo. I came to Pawprints from Ally Cats so my foster mum was able to help two poorly cats who needed my isolation pen. They took care of me and nursed me back to health after a tail injury brought me into their care. I’m all better now and am happy for my pad to help another cat who needs it. The folk here at Pawprints are nice too, I arrived in time for chicken dinner, winner! I’m finishing my vaccinations this week so am all ready to find my furever home. They volunteers say I’m a charmer and the way to my heart is through my stomach! I’m a friendly boy who will make a great companion. I will need to be able to play out in my furever home too once settled. Purrlease fill in the adoption form thingy if you’d like to meet me 🐾




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.

Adoption Process

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.

Adoption Fees

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.
