Adopt

Interested in adopting?

We have cats in our care who are sat waiting for their forever home to come along. From our young cats to our more senior cats, they would all love to say hello to you.

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 to arrange a visit. WE DO NOT HAVE ANY KITTENS

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.

 

MEET OUR RESIDENTS

BUSTER

  • 10+ years old.
  • Male
  • Adult only home or older/sensible children
  • Needs Outdoor Access

Buster came to us with his housemates Kim and Big Boy after his owner had to go into a care home. As you can see from his picture he is a big softie and loves fusses! He can be a little shy when you first meet him but once he gets to know you he’ll want non stop fusses. He will need a home with people who will give him time to come out of his shell and is a real lap cat. He will need a home without young children. Buster can be re-homed with his house mate Kim should you wish to adopt a pair. Could you give the sweet boy Buster a chance?

 

KIM

  • Approx 10-16 years old.
  • Female
  • Adult only home or older/sensible children
  • Indoor cat

Kim arrived at the rescue after her owner went into a care home. She came with multiple health problems and needed dental work, antibiotics and steroids. She’s now on the mend and is looking for a forever home. Kim is sadly overlooked due to her age but she’s a lovely girl who just wants to spend her retirement years in comfort. We have recently discovered that Kim is actually deaf so will need to stay indoors. Kim can be re-homed with Buster (above). Could you give an older lady like Kim another chance?

 

BIG BOY

  • 10+ years old.
  • Male
  • Adult only home or older/sensible children
  • Needs Outdoor Access

Big Boy arrived at Pawprints after his owner had to move into a care home. He lived with Kim and Buster (above) but prefers to keep himself to himself. He’s a much more confident boy than his housemates but can still be a little shy when you first meet him. He’s a lovely lad who just wants a second chance.

 

SKYE, PIPPA AND KUBA *Special & experienced home needed*

Our beautiful semi-feral family are needing a special and experienced home. Skye came to us with her 2 kittens Kuba and Pippa. Both Skye and Pippa are semi-feral and Pippa does not like to be touched. Kuba (front) is a friendly chap once you get to know him and gain his trust. They need a home with people who have previous experience with semi-feral or feral cats and who are willing to commit at least 6 months to helping settle these three in. They are a very bonded family and we have tried to separate them in the past but they have become very distressed so they need to be re-homed together.

 

BOOTS AND SOCKS *Extra Special Home Urgently Needed*

  • 4 years old
  • Male
  • Brothers
  • Special Needs

Hi! We are Boots and Socks. We are a lovely pair of 4 year old brothers who have been here since September 2019 after our owners gave us up. Unfortunately Boots had been a bit poorly and has IBS and has to be on a diet of easy to digest foods. It is a condition that will have to be managed his whole life. Sadly this is making it tough to find someone to give him a chance. We will both need safe access to the outdoors in our new home. We would love a second chance. If you would like to learn more about us please get in touch via the adoption enquiry form and chat to the humans about Boot’s condition.

KITTENS

 

UPDATE: WE DO NOT HAVE ANY KITTENS
We are a rescue that mainly focuses on adult cats and usually only have one lot of kittens in at a time. 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 £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.
