OUR CATS

**While we do our best to take in cats for re-homing, we only have a limited amount of space available. Therefore, we have a waiting list in place and anyone wishing to give up their cat/cats to us, must first go on this list and will be prioritised by date of entry in fairness to all our customers.**

To all customers wishing to re-home a cat, please note that ALL of our cats have had veterinary check-ups. This includes testing for viruses, worming and flea treatments, neutering/spaying and vaccinations, we also now microchip all our cats before they leave the Sanctuary. If you decide you would like to take on a homeless cat, please note we do not do home checks on you – we believe that anyone kind enough to want to shelter a homeless animal should be trusted to care for that animal properly. We will try to match your circumstances and needs to those of the cats we show you. However, we do have to ask a minimum donation of £60 to help pay our costs. Even this amount will not cover the amount we have spent. We now accept payment by card.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please Note – The cats featured on this page are just a small selection of what we have available

Lana

  •   Female
  •   Domestic
  •  5 years old
  •   From Gravesend
  •   Lana was handed over to us in June 2019 because she was not getting on with the other cats in the household. We have spayed her and she has calmed down and is a sweet little cat who is lively and vocal. She is a little nervous at first but once she trusts you she is a very loving, affectionate girl. She is said to be used to children and dogs and we believe a home without other cats would suit her better.

Simba

  •   Male
  •   Domestic
  •  10 years old
  •   From Whitfield
  •   Simba was handed over to us in June 2019 because his owner became too unwell to look after him. He is a very friendly, lovely natured boy who loves attention and his food. He enjoys exploring the sanctuary and he has been used to living with another cat. We do not know how he is with children or dogs.

Snowy and Blackie

  •   Male & Female
  •   Domestic
  •   4 years old/4 years old
  •   From Dover
  •   Snowy and Blackie (female more black on face) were handed over to us in April 2019 because they were displaced in a move. We have had them both spayed/neutered. At first they were both very scared and they would not let us near them. Blackie has really grown in confidence and we cannot believe the change in her. She is very friendly and affectionate and enjoys being out in the sanctuary. Snowy is yet to let us win him round but we hope once he is settled in a quiet new home, he will become braver and just as friendly. They are close and must be homed together. We do not know how they are with children or dogs.

Hewie

  •   Male
  •   Domestic
  •   10 years old approx
  •   From near Ashford
  •   Hewie was handed over to us in June 2019 because his owner could not take him to the new property. Hewie has a lovely nature but he has a little bit of a feral side to him as he was taken in as a stray. He is big solid boy who is said to be a good hunter. He is used to dogs and other cats but he does not like children.

Beastie Boy

  •   Male
  •   Domestic
  •  7 years old approx
  •   From near Faversham
  •  Beastie Boy was handed over to us in November 2018 because he had been a stray and being fed by somebody for a few months. They said that he is not very friendly, hence his name (edited from Beast)! He was very scared, lashed out at us and unhandleable.  Now he has gained the trust of one the members of staff, he is changed boy. He loves lots of attention and he’s very affectionate, cuddly, head rubs and he enjoys tasty sticks. But he does not like anyone else! We hope that he can get to know somebody in a home where he feels safe, so that his love and trust can be transferred to them. We do not advise children as he can lash out with sudden movements and noises and he is not too bad with other cats.

Bluey and Lady

  •  Females
  •   Domestic
  • 17 years old/15 years old
  •   From Ashford
  •  Bluey and her daughter Lady (white on top lip) were handed over to us in March 2019 after their owner passed away. If it is an older pair of cats you are looking for, then look no further than these two beauties. Bluey loves everybody and everything and she likes exploring the sanctuary and meeting people. Lady prefers to stay in bed and she is a little nervous at first but soon comes round once she knows you. They have good appetites, would prefer a quiet house and must be homed together. They both have Grade 3 heart murmurs.

Narlah

  •   Female
  •   Domestic
  • 2 years old
  •  From Folkestone
  •  Narlah was handed over to us in May 2019 because a child was allergic to her. She is said to be timid and very vocal. We have not been able to win her round just yet as she is so scared and hides. We are hopeful that being so young, she could become a nice girl, with lots of time and patience. We do not advise a home with children or other pets. She is micro chipped.

Sasha

  •   Female
  •   Domestic
  •  14 years old
  •   From Lyminge
  •   Sasha was handed over to us in April 2019 because her owner sadly passed away. She was very devoted to her elderly lady owner but is said to not like other people. She is unpredictable and not very handleable. She is used to having lots of fields around her and loved being outside. Being an older cat who has had such a big change, we hope that if she is rehomed to a similar environment, she will be happier than she is here. She has a micro chip. No children or other animals.

Simba

  • Male
  •   Domestic
  •  10 years old
  •   From Pluckley
  •  Simba was handed over to us in April 2019 because of a change of circumstances. Unfortunately we have not been able to win him round just yet. He is unpredictable and does lash out. He was friendly with his previous owners so we hope that in a new home where he feels safe, with lots of time and patience for him to trust you, he should become friendlier. Or he may just want to be left to do his own thing. He is said to prefer to stay indoors and he does not like other cats, dogs or children.

Olly

  •  Male
  •   Domestic
  •  13 years old
  •   From Deal
  •  Olly was handed over to us in February 2019 because his owner sadly passed away. He is a big beautiful boy who is very friendly and loves lots of attention and he is a good companion. He can get a bit grumpy sometimes because he does not like the other cats. He has only ever lived with an elderly lady so a quiet home would suit him best where he can lay around in a sunny spot and have access to a garden. He is micro chipped and he is on medication once daily and a renal diet for his kidneys. He has a Grade 5-6 heart murmur. Please do not hesitate to come and meet him and ask us any questions you have.

Marlin

  •   Male
  •   Domestic
  •  3-4 years old
  •   From Folkestone
  •   Marlin was handed over to us in April 2019 because he had been a stray for a few months. He was fighting with other cats and the poor boy has the torn ears to prove it. He needs time to get to know you and he is friendly and lets us fuss him. We have neutered and micro chipped him. We do not know how he is with children or dogs.
