Adopt via our Direct Homing Scheme

Where we're not able to take in a cat that needs a new home, we try to help via our Direct Homing Scheme. This is referred to as a 'private adoption' as it is up to the potential adopter to liaise directly with the current carer to decide if the cat is suited to its possible new home. Equally, it is up to the current carer to decide whether the potential adopter will provide a good home, properly care for the cat, and keep the cat indoors in its new home for at least six weeks. The current carer continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place.

We feature the cat on our website and give brief details but we make no claim to accurate knowledge of the cat, its health, vaccination status, whether it is neutered, micro-chipped, etc.

Cats featured will stay on the site until we hear/establish that they have been rehomed or other arrangements made.

There are no adoption fees for this - the Direct Homing Scheme - but either party may want to make a donation to the branch which is much appreciated.

This little stray wandered into Linda’s garden approximately one year ago and Linda has been caring for her ever since.
She would happily keep her but she already has two cats of her own.
Linda tells us a little more about Steph below: 
“Steph is about 2 years old.  She is not microchipped and we’re not really sure if she has been vaccinated.  When she arrived, we noticed that she had patches of sensitive skin.  The vet diagnosed her with a skin condition which is controllable with medication.   She is friendly – even with strangers and likes to be stroked – although she does tend to hide away from children so would be best suited to an adult only environment.   Because we already have two cats, she tends to stay outdoors and sleeps outside in our garden.  I would love to find her a home soon as I wouldn’t like her to spend another winter in the cold outdoors."
If you think you could give Steph the care and love that she clearly needs, and are interested in learning more about this sweet 2 year old,
then please call LINDA on 07948 605732 for more details, or to arrange a visit in the Erdington area.

Rochelle tells us that due to a change in personal circumstances, she is no longer able to take care of Stripe.
Read more of what she says about this fun loving, cuddle seeking kitty, below:
“Stripe is a 1 year old male who has been microchipped and neutered.  He is a friendly cat who loves to have cuddles - he is a big boy.  He brings home leaves and sticks and currently lives with 4 other cats, 2 dogs and 2 children...and loves to chase a laser around!  Stripe is a very calm cat but does like to go hyper when he sees a fly.”
 If you think you could offer a loving home to this cute cat, then please call 
ROCHELLE on 07460 549079 for more details, or to arrange a visit in the Sutton Coldfield area.

These two "adorable" cats are being lovingly cared for by their neighbour who learned that they had been
abandoned by their previous owners when they moved away.
Read more of what Tracey says about them below:
“These two kitties are about 3 years old.  We think the black and white is a girl and the tabby a boy – but this has not been confirmed.   The tabby cat is a little nervous but once he becomes familiar with you, he is okay.   Neither of these cats are feral.   They appear to be playful and affectionate.   I have been feeding them regularly and their appetite is fine.  I am afraid I know nothing of their history, whether they are vaccinated or spayed/neutered.   But I do know they are friendly and that I would really like to find them a loving home.  I already have a couple of senior cats otherwise I would happily take these adorable cats in”
 If these abandoned cats have tugged on your heart strings, then please call 
TRACEY on 07966 254691 for more details, or to arrange a visit in the Great Barr area.

Rosie and Tiddly are sad because their owner has passed away. Although they are being well cared for by Sharon, she is unable to take them on full-time, so they are now looking for a new home together, where they can receive the love and security they once knew. 
 Read what Sharon says about these inseparable best friends below:
Rosie and Tiddly have been indoor cats since they were kittens and are now in their ninth/tenth year.   They tend to shy away from the outdoors, preferring to spend time at home – sleeping.

Rosie is an affectionate cat who doesn’t play much these days.

Tiddly is more timid than Rosie and doesn’t like too much fuss – at least not until she knows you better so a little patience is required here.

The ideal home for them would be a very quiet household where they could stay indoors and gradually acclimatise themselves to their new environment.   They have not been spayed or microchipped. “ 
Could you offer these two beauties a caring, loving home?  
Then please call Sharon on 07722 862317 for more details, or to arrange a visit in the Dudley area.
