Adopt

Interested in adopting?

 

We have plenty of cats and kittens in our care who are sat waiting for their forever home to come along. From our kittens to our more senior cats, we’ve got plenty who’d love to say hello to you.

If you would like to enquire about any of our cats or to ask about kittens (not all kittens are listed on the page yet, so please do get in touch) then you can enquire via our Facebook page or e mail paws_in_need@yahoo.co.uk.

If you would like to visit the rescue to meet our cats you are more than welcome to do so, please do get in touch first so we can arrange for someone to greet you and show you around.

CATS OF THE WEEK: SKYE AND PIPPA

Pippa

Hi, I’m Skye and this is my daughter Pippa. We are very close and we are mum and sister to Kuba. We are semi feral and can get very scared around people. We would love a nice family who understand our needs and would have the patience to help us come out of our shells. We would love to be homed with Kuba, but we know this might be a huge ask. We would need access to the outdoors once we are settled in. Would you help us?

MEET OUR OTHER RESIDENTS

 

DODIE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi there! I’m Dodie. I’m a very friendly and chatty 7 year old boy. I love love love fusses! Really I’m just a giant teddy bear, all I ever want is fuss time.  I’ve had a very hard life and came to Pawprints after I had been living on the streets for 4 years! I’m very affectionate and love everyone. I insist on regular cuddle times with my foster mum. I would love a forever home where I could be fussed ALL the time and have a nice garden I could explore in. I’m currently in foster with one of our volunteers. Do you have space for a handsome man like me?

 

SETH AND LUNA *Reserved

  

Hi, we are Seth and Luna. We have been at Pawprints for 4 months! Which is madness since we really are the most beautiful pair of cats you will have ever seen. We are super friendly, love fusses, are fine with children and other cats. We are perfect for families or new cat owners. Yet here we are. We don’t mind it here though, we get food fuss and cuddles and we get to lounge around in the sun in our hammocks. Still, we would LOVE nothing more than to find a nice forever home where we could put our paws up and play out when we are ready. We are only 18 months old and must be homed together as we are the best of friends. We would love it if we could finally be the chosen ones. Do you have space for a sweet pair like us?

 

MARLON

                                                                                                    

Hello, my name is Marlon. I came to the rescue after my previous owners moved house and left me behind! I was shy at first but now I’m very friendly and love a good fuss, and to be the centre of attention. I’m quite a chilled out cat. I’m about 1 years old I think! I would like to be the king of my forever home as I can’t be doing with all these other cats. Could you be my happy ever after?

 

KUBA




Hello, I’m Kuba. I’m a bit shy when I first meet you, but once I know you I’m the loveliest and sweetest boy. I’m also a bit cheeky. I love to help the volunteers clean up my pen by jumping on the mop. I also like it when they stop to play with my favourite feather toy. It’s fun! I’m about 1 years old now. I would love to be homed with my mum Skye and sister Pippa, but I know it’s a big ask for someone to take all three of us, so I could maybe go on my own to the right people. I’m very good with other cats, so I don’t mind having housemates. Do you have a Kuba shaped hole in your life?

TIGER

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi there! I’m Tiger. I came to the rescue a year ago after my owner passed away. I hated being in a pen and was very sad so I went into a foster home. It’s good here but I would love a forever home though, I’ve been waiting so long. I’m 8 years young and love to sit on everyones lap. I love to play with my dangly toys too! I would like a nice quiet home with no little people please. Maybe a nice garden for me to sit out in too. Could I be the cat for you?

 

PEBBLES


Hi everyone! I’m Pebbles. I came to the rescue after my owners could no longer care for me. I’m around 3 years old and can be a little timid when we first meet, but once I get to know you I am the friendliest and most chilled out boy you could meet. I’m also very handsome! I would love to be the king of my castle and have access to the outdoors so I can go exploring. Would you like to come say hello?

 

KIA AND MIA


Hi, we are Mia and Kia. We are the sweetest mother and daughter duo. We came to the rescue after our owners could no longer care for us. We have been here a while as we keep getting overlooked! It’s not fair! Kia is around 1 years old and is full of life and I’m more laid back and like lots of fuss, I’m about 2 years old. We would love a nice forever family with access to a nice garden where we can sit out and play. Do you have a Kia and Mia shaped hole in your heart?

 

BLACKIE *Reserved

Hello, I’m Blackie. I’m mum to Sooty and Whiskey. I am around 3 years. I came to the rescue after my elderly owner sadly passed away. I love to have lots of attention, fusses and to be groomed. I’m told by the volunteers that I can be a bit of a bossy boots! Although I think I’m just assertive! I’m getting a bit fed up at the rescue and would love to find a new home where I can boss everyone around and have a nice garden to sit out in. Do you have room for a princess like me?

 

SOOTY *Reserved

Hello, I’m Sooty! I am a lovely 2 year old girl. I came to the rescue with my mum and sister after our elderly owner sadly passed away. I was a little shy at first but I’ve gained lots of confidence. I love to have strokes and I do love my food! I’m a very chilled out puss and would like a quiet home where I can have some peace. I’d love a nice garden too if I may. I would like to be homed with my sister Whiskey ideally, but I could also be homed without her. Do you have a sooty shaped hole in your heart?

 

WHISKEY *Reserved

Hi everyone, I’m Whiskey. I’m a lovely and sweet 2 year old girl. I came to the rescue with my mum and sister after our elderly owner sadly passed away. I was very shy at first as it was all a bit scary, but the volunteers here have helped me settle and I’m now a friendly girl. I love strokes and fusses. I would love a forever family in a quiet house with a garden please. I would love to be homed with my sister Sooty, but we could always be homed separately too. Do you have room for a sweet girl like me?

 

PINKY AND JUNIOR

 

Hello! I’m Pinky. I’m a very affectionate10 year old lady. I absolutely LOVE fusses and really can never have too many fusses! I really am the sweetest if I do say so myself. Word from our neighbours, Blackie and her family, is that Pawprints are looking for fab new homes for us! I am mum to Junior (right) and would love to be homed with him. He is 9 years old and really is just a big cuddle monster once you get to know him, although he can be shy at first. We would love to be homed with a nice friendly family with a nice garden for us to sit in. Do you have room for a more experienced pair like us?

 

VINNIE

Hello, I’m Vinnie. I’m a lovely 11 month year old boy. Although I’m very big for my age! I came here after my owners could no longer care for me. I’m very sad and scared right now but the volunteers are helping me settle. I was an indoor cat so I can be homed as one or I can be an outdoor cat too. I would love a family who have the patience to help me come out of my shell? Could you help?

SALEM

Hello, I’m Salem. I came into the rescue as an emergency intake after I was handed into White Cross Vets because my owner had passed away and I was wandering the streets. Fortunately they managed to squeeze me in here at Pawprints.  I’m a lovely friendly lad and I’m about 1 years old. I would love to see you! I will be posing for some more piccies soon.

 

KITTENS

We do have kittens looking for homes. We only home kittens once they’ve reached the age of 12 weeks and we never home akitten 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.

If you would like to meet some of our kittens then please get in touch here.

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 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 just anyone walk off with them, 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 so we can look up your home to make sure it is in a suitable location. If we believe it to be unsuitable you will not be able to adopt the cat and we will contact you to let you know, all final decisions will be made by the rescue owner. We politely ask that you do not send family/ friends to argue on your behalf. 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 £65 for adult cats and £80 for kittens, 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.
