From time to time we help rehome cats that are not in our care. If you can offer a home to these special cats please send your name, address and telephone number/email address with some details about your current situation/pets/children etc and we will get in touch asap.

  

Bear, Faye and their grown kittens (July 2017)

 

I'm sorry to report that the small colony of five cats - Bear and co - will not be going to a lovely new home afterall. We had reached the stage where visits had been carried out and measurements taken to fix a mesh door to the stable, but yesterday the most nervous of the group, Buble, who always ran away when his feeders arrived, didn't run away. Knowing something must be seriously wrong he was caught and taken to the emergency vets last night. There he was put on a drip while blood tests were taken followed by further examination and an abdominal scan. This morning it was confirmed he had FIP. He was regretfully put to sleep but not until his main feeder and carer for many months, and the person whom he trusted most, was by his side. This now leaves us with a problem once again. Although the other four cats appear fit and well, we don't know if they're carriers of FIP. There isn't a test to prove this. Many cats carry the coronavirus, including domestic pets, but they might never develop FIP. We now need a loving home where these four cats can live together if possible, Bear (grey) and Faye (black) are mum and dad and both are tame, love to be stroked and can even be picked up by their feeder. The two smaller ones are their grown kittens and are still nervous but improving. As they are not true ferals it wouldn't be necessary for the home just to be a farm/smallholding/stables.

If your home has room for these cats, we could even consider providing an outdoor run (link below). If you can help, please email feralcatwelfare@aol.com with as much information about your situation as possible so we can try and find the right home for the cats before developers demolish their shelter.

 Mau and Kucing (25 Jan 2017)

 

A quiet loving home is needed for Mau and Kucing who have been returned to our care after five years due to a child's allergy. These cats can be rehomed together or separately, preferably in the Nottingham or Leeds area but we will travel if the right home is offered. They have only known an indoor life so an indoor home will be considered if it is spacious with freedom to use many rooms/at least two floors.  If eventually allowed out they will need a catflap so that they can always return indoors, and the location will need to be well away from busy roads/cut-throughs.  

They are very playful and love to have their mad half hour chasing each other around. Their favourite toys are feather teaser type toys and a laser pointer that they love to chase the red dot around the floor. They have also discovered a treat ball, and worked out pretty quickly how to get the treats out of the hole. 

 

Ferals and semi-feral cats

We are in contact with other charities or the public who are looking for homes for feral cats.  Please let us know if you can provide a safe environment for two or more ferals (most prefer to live with other cats).  The home would need to be away from busy roads/lanes, and the cats would need shelter and to be fed at least once a day to keep them healthy.
