Cat of the week
Twinkle

Twinkle

Gender/Age: Female 8yrs
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Grey & White
Location: Edenbridge

A sweet but nervous girl who was brought up in a home with children and other animals. She did not like either and moved out into the neighbours' garden where she has lived for some time. A very kind couple took her in but she could not stand their cats and is now looking for a very loving single person or a gentle, quiet couple with no children or other animals. Twinkle has had a very hard time and will take a little while to make friends with new owners, but she is a very sweet little girl and will be a loving and loyal cat for a gentle, patient owner. Please consider giving Twinkle the forever home she so deserves.

Magic, Paddy & Maddy

Magic, Paddy & Maddy

Magic, Paddy & Maddy

Magic, Paddy & Maddy

Gender/Age: 51/2yrs & 4yrs
Breed: Short haired
Colour: Tortie & White, Tabby & White and Tortie
Location: Edenbridge

Very sweet, playful family who will enjoy the great outdoors once they have settled in a home, and will be hunters. Magic's owner was severely mentally ill and Magic lived in a shed all her life, breeding but unable to protect her kittens and so loves the two that she has finally been able to keep safely. All three are shy but gentle and curious about everything. They all adore catnip and dreamies and love to play with things on strings. Magic and Paddy are very bonded and need a home together, Maddy would need a home with another friendly, gentle cat. Paddy is much more friendly now and can be stroked when he is eating, with some work he will become more tame and is a real sweetheart. Maddy is still very shy but not aggressive. Magic has no real interest in people and keeps to herself, but if some catnip toys appear she will play for hours and when the weather is windy, she gets very excited and races around like a kitten. Please consider these cats, they are our longest residents and need homes of their own. Although they are shy, they would be fun for a gentle child 8yrs and over who was happy to sit and play with them and slowly make friends.


Lucille

Lucille

Gender/Age: Female, 12 years
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Black & White
Location: New Romney

Lucille is a sweet older lady who was unfortunately found as a stray and so needs a new loving home. Lucille can be very nervous and unsure of new people, until she has learnt to trust you. Once she knows you, she is very affectionate and loving. She is good with other cats, potentially a cat friendly dog and we are suggesting gentle children 8 years+

Phoebe

Phoebe

Gender/Age: Female 11yrs
Breed: Domestic Short haired
Colour: Black
Location: New Romney

Phoebe has bundles of character and is looking for a loving forever home after her owner couldn't keep her anymore. She can be a little shy to begin with but once she trusts you she loves nothing more than to curl up on your lap for a fuss. Sadly, she isn't good with other animals and will need an adult only home.


Willow

Willow

Gender/Age: Female 18mths
Breed: Persian
Colour: Brown & White Bicolour
Location: Edenbridge

Willow is a very dear little cat who loves attention. She has unfortunately been urinating on the carpet in her home and in spite of her best efforts, her owner has not been able to stop this behaviour and has given her up for rehoming. In the rescue she uses each of her trays once, and then will wee on the floor rather than use a tray again. This only happens at night if she runs out of clean trays, and she is clean during the day. She is an absolute poppet, and if a kind owner had a room she could stay in overnight with plenty of trays and perhaps an easy to clean floor, it might not be too much of a problem. Please consider this sweet little girl, for someone who loves Persians she will be such a dear companion. She is on a special diet as she has a slightly sensitive tummy, but she is doing very well.

Kenji

Kenji

Gender/Age: Female 11yrs
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Tabby
Location: Edenbridge

A very sweet girl who came into the rescue with her two sons after a change in family circumstances. Kenji is a very affectionate lap cat and is homely and companionable. She is good with gentle children 5+yrs and will make a sweet family pet. She has been much loved by her owner and given up with a very heavy heart.


Phizz & Mowgli

Phizz & Mowgli

Gender/Age: Female & Male 8yrs
Breed: Bengals
Colour: Spotted tabby
Location: Edenbridge

These two extremely bonded cats were used as a breeding pair for the first five years of their life. They were caged and had no love or socialisation. They were sold to a family who were told they were fine with children, but sadly they were, understandably, absolutely terrified of the children and after making brilliant progress with their confidence over a period of two years, their owner decided very sadly that their fear of the children had reached an unmanageable point and the best thing for the cats would be a new home. They were rehomed to a quiet couple but sadly Mowgli has recently started urinating in their home, possibly because of the appearance of another cat in his territory. The cats are loving and affectionate in time, and are terribly sweet, nosy and very noisy, but they will probably always suffer from anxiety and stress because of their extremely poor start. One way to address this might be to have a room that is very much theirs from the start and to keep them in that room overnight so they feel safe and don't feel the need to mark the house. They need the most patient, gentle owners who can cope with their erratic behaviour and are happy to take the time needed to gain their trust and make friends with them. Phizz and Mowgli are very adventurous cats, and once they are established in the home, they are likely to spend quite a lot of time outside racing around.

Alix + Shay

Alix + Shay

Gender/Age: Female + Male, 16wks
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Black + white
Location: New Romney

Alix and Shay are a shy but sweet pair of kittens who came to us as part of a rescued orphan litter who were found on the street. They can be a little bit nervous to begin with but with time and patience their curiosity and cheeky nature soon emerges. They would benefit from a calm quiet home which they can safely explore in their own time. They are good with other cats, possibly gentle dogs and sensible children 10 yrs+.


Roxy

Roxy

Gender/Age: Male 9yrs
Breed: Domestic short haired
Colour: Black & White
Location: Edenbridge

Roxy is a very nervous boy who has been abused and always feels he has to attack to defend himself. It took me about 6 months to make friends with him and now he is very affectionate and loving very much on his own terms. He would need to be confined in one room in the home, for possibly three months, because once he is out in the home, it is difficult to separate him when he panics or feels threatened. He is likely to show aggression until he learns to trust a new person. He does bite and scratch and can draw blood, but when he trusts and makes friends he is a very sweet boy. He is a very difficult boy, but he is worth the effort and time it would take to make friends with him. He is extremely playful, loves catnip in any form and would do anything for a bit of cheese and vegetarian ham granary roll! He could be an indoor cat in a home where he has plenty of space and things to amuse him, or he might be able to go outside in a very safe home, once he has been established in the home for quite a long time. He is a very active cat and likes to be entertained.

Catsi & Rupert

Catsi & Rupert

Gender/Age: Males 8mths
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Black and Tabby
Location: Edenbridge

A very sweet pair of brothers who have never been out of their home before and are finding cattery life quite frightening. They will be much happier once they are back in a loving home. They have lived with 6 other cats and will be fine with cats, gentle dogs and gentle children 8+yrs.


Cleo

Cleo

Gender/Age: Female 5yrs
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Tabby
Location: Edenbridge

Cleo is a very tiny, very pretty little girl, but unfortunately she is extremely fearful and can be fear aggressive. When she is frightened she tries to make herself look as frightening as possible, and succeeded in scaring her last owner so much that Cleo had to be collected from the home. She takes a long time to trust anyone and even once she has developed a relationship, she can still be set off by an unusual sound or event. Cleo needs a very experienced owner, who won't be intimidated by her fearful displays and who is happy to leave her alone and allow her to settle in for as long as it takes. I have developed a very sweet relationship with her, it has taken months and now I can stroke her and she sits on my lap for brief periods. It is all very much on her terms and she is happy with that. She is worth the wait for a patient person, she will always be nervous, but is a funny, playful, chatty and affectionate girl, very much in need of a home.

Blue

Blue

Gender/Age: Female 6yrs
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Ginger
Location: Edenbridge

This very sweet little girl was bought from a terrible home where she was not socialised properly and was taken from her mum too early. As a result she finds it incredibly hard to cope with change and in spite of great care and gentle approaches by her very loving owners, the arrival of a new baby has upset her to the point where she can no longer stay in the house. Blue is a very loving girl who loves to bask in the sun but will shoot back into the house if she gets a fright. She must have a catflap to give her secure access to her home and will always need a litter tray indoors so that she can feel safe. She will make a lovely companion for a kind gentle single person or couple with no other animals or children. She needs a quiet, safe, loving home where her new owners will take their time getting to know her and earning her trust.


Samuel & Billy

Samuel & Billy

Gender/Age: Males 6yrs
Breed: Siamese x and DSLH
Colour: Seal Point and Silver Tabby
Location: Edenbridge

A very sweet pair of best friends whose original owner died. Sadly their new owner is unable to keep them and would like to try and home them from her home so they don't have to come into the rescue. Samuel is a very sweet boy, not a lap cat but will happily sit beside his owner on the sofa and likes to sleep on her bed. Billy is ridiculously affectionate, a real lapcat and wants to sleep with his owner on the bed or snuggled up with her. The two boys love to race around and play together and then snuggle up on a comfy chair or sofa. Samuel and Billy had only had access to an outdoor pen in their original home but are now indoor cats and Billy really misses the chance to go out. If a new owner had a safe pen for the boys to pop in and out that would be ideal, otherwise they will need a very safe home where Billy can learn about the great outdoors without engdangering himself. Please come and register if you are interested in these two lovely boys. They will make wonderful companions for an adult only home with no other pets.

Mia & Thelma

Mia & Thelma

Gender/Age: Females 12yrs and 10yrs
Breed: Domestic Short Haired
Colour: Brindle Tortie and Black
Location: Edenbridge

A very sweet mother and daughter who play and cuddle up together. Mia likes to sit on the furniture and will sit on a lap if she is in the mood, Thelma is a real lap cat. Both cats would like to sleep with their owners at night, but they are quite busy tapping faces and sleeping on heads! They have been finding life with a young child and a dog quite stressful and would like an adult home or children 12yrs and over with no other pets. Mia has a habit of stealing socks and other small items to bring home as gifts for her owners. These cats will be very lovely, playful, homely companions for a loving family. Do not be put off by their age, they are healthy, active, busy, funny girls and will bring lots of love into their new home.
