Adopt

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

NORM

  • Male
  • Approx 12-14 years old
  • Needs lots of company 
  • Adult only cat savvy home

Hellloooo, I’m Norm! I arrived here after a kind lady who was feeding me when I had nowhere else to go got a bit worried about me. The volunteers think I must have had a nice owner at one time as I was neutered and am very friendly but sadly they couldn’t find them so here I am! I’ve had a few vet trips since arriving, I had an infection from my time on the streets and I had my teeth sorted too but I’m all better now. The vets think I’m  an older chap but the good news is my bloods were great and I have plenty of life left in me yet which I will show you if you get the feather toy out! I absolutely love sitting on laps, I could sit on you for ages if you let me! I just like company and feel much better when I have it but of course I don’t mind you going to play out for a bit sometimes! I’ve earned the nickname ‘Naughty Norm’ as I don’t like being made to get off a lap before I’ve finished with it & have been known to nip but the hoomans use this trick with treats which stupid me falls for every time to get me down! I have been used to going out but I’ve done plenty of that so I think I’ll be OK to be an indoor cat now if I had plenty of space and attention if playing out wasn’t an option. Purrlease fill in the form thingy if you can offer me a home 🐾

CHICCO

  • Male
  • 7 years old
  • Would prefer to be the only cat
  • Needs outdoor access

Heyyyy the names Chicco and let me tell you, I’ve had quite an eventful few months! First I found myself left behind by my hoomans and didn’t know what to do but a kind lady fed and looked out for me before getting me some help to find me a home. Then I arrived here and they took me to the V E T S!!! I had a full health check and some teeth out which has made me feel better. They are treating me well here but I do get stressed with being couped up at the rescue and would love to be back in a home again where I can play out. They say I’m a little bit special because I need a grain free diet good for my tummy but the volunteers say this isn’t expensive so don’t worry! I did sometimes have accidents outside my tray which the diet has helped me with now thankfully but it’s best if you don’t have lots of carpet where my tray is just in case! I love a good lap and sofa to sit on and also love the outside so a nice garden would be purrfect for me. I know I’m a little bit of work but I promise to bring you lots of love and happiness in return for your patience. Can you offer me a chance?

SOOTY

  • Male
  • 2.5 years old
  • Needs outdoor access

Hello, I’m Sooty and I came to Pawprints when my owner could no longer care for me. It was a bit scary to start with but I’m settling in now and starting to enjoy some fusses. I’m a bit of a shy boy but with lots of love to give once I trust you so I’d like a fairly quiet home to match me pretty please. I have been allowed to play out so a nice safe garden is good too. I’ve not lived with other cats or young children so I’m not sure how I feel about them. Can you offer me my happy ever after?

SALLY

  • Female
  • 13 years old
  • Needs to be the only cat

Hello! I’m Sally and a kind neighbour took me in when my owner could no longer care for me. He’s a nice fella and looks after me well but unfortunately he can’t keep me forever because he goes away a lot so wants to find me the purrfect home with someone who will take good care of me and be around a bit more to keep me company for the rest of my years. I’m a quiet lady who enjoys the easy life. I like fusses but also enjoy my own space too so I won’t live in your pocket I promise! I’m in good health so don’t let my age put you off, age is just a number right?! I like to play, my foster dad has been introducing me to toys which has been fun! I do like a little mooch around the garden occasionally but like to spend much of my time inside. Can you offer me my furever home? 🐾

NEO AND VIOLET

  • Mum and son
  • 2.5 and 2 years old
  • Need outdoor access
  • Need to be the only cats

Hello, Violet and Neo here. We originally came to Pawprints as our owner passed away. We did find a home but unfortunately it didn’t quite work out and we ended up back at the rescue. The volunteers say don’t let the innocent faces fool you! They say we can be quite naughty and territorial when it comes to other cats (OK ok, I, Violet, may have tried to beat Chicco up the other day but he did ask for it. Well that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!) so need a home that doesn’t have lots of cats nearby. We also like to scratch carpets so the volunteers say we need a carpet free or scratch friendly house. Despite all that, we are friendly and enjoy sitting in the catio at the rescue watching the world go by. We are better suited to a quieter home. If there is anyone out there who doesn’t mind a bit of character and could give us our furever home please get touch 🐾

NINA AND BOLINA

  • Bonded female pair
  • 3 years and 18 month old
  • Need to be the only cats

Hello, Nina and Bolina here. We came to Pawprints when our owners moved away and couldn’t take us with them. The kind people here looked after us and got us spayed and into a nice foster home to recuperate whilst we wait for our furever home. The volunteers say we are cheeky girls once we get to know you and are typical sisters, sleeping together then arguing over who gets the top shelf on the cat tree! We like attention and our face spot is in the window watching the world go by. We would be fine in an adult only home or one with older children. Could you give us our furever home purretty please? 🐾


TEDDY (RESERVED)

  • Male
  • Approx 8 years old
  • Need outdoor access
  • Quiet home needed

Hey, I’m Teddy. I came to Pawprints when a kind family saw me visiting their garden and saw I needed help. I’ve been looking after myself for a few years now, it’s been hard and I’m learning to trust again. My foster mum looked after me while I had my bits off and teeth done until a pen was free for me I’m feeling so much better now and getting used to the nice volunteers. I sometimes growl to protect myself when I’m scared but once you get past my hard exterior I can be pretty sweet, just don’t tell anyone! I love food, its definitely the way to my heart! I need a quiet home with someone understanding that will let me come round at my own pace. In return I will repay you in headbumps & fusses. Can you offer me that chance?

Buttons (RESERVED) 

  • Male
  • 11 months old

Hey, Buttons here! I came to Pawprints because they said I was tormenting the older cats. I only wanted to play but I think maybe I was just a bit much for them. The dog didn’t seem to mind me! I’m a friendly boy who loves attention! The volunteers say I’m cheeky and lots of fun! Could you give me my furever home purrtyyy please? 🐾

ARIANA (RESERVED) 

  • Female
  • Approx 8-10 months old

Hey hey, I’m Ariana but you can call me Ari! The volunteers say I’m cute and sassy! I love to play and wrestle with a good arm! I could live with other animals who want to play with me and children but not too young as I can play rough at times. So come on now, pick me! 🐾

KITTENS

 

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 £75 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.
