CATS FOR REHOMING

Rehoming Animals Since 2005

Rehoming a cat can be a rewarding and exciting experience but it is important that you understand the commitment can be anything up to twenty years of your life.

At Woodlands Animal Sanctuary we understand that all our animals’ health and well-being is paramount. We work with Rufford Veterinary Group to ensure that all our cats and kittens receive the highest standards of care and medical treatment possible before being rehomed. This includes:

  • Veterinary Checks
  • Worming Treatment
  • Microchipping
    All of our cats and kittens leave Woodlands registered to the Sanctuary to ensure they can be re-united with their family.
  • Tests for Feline Aids and Leukemia where necessary
  • Spayed/Neutered
    All cats over 6 months old are spayed/neutered and kittens from 9 weeks to 6 months come with a neutering voucher for Rufford Veterinary Group
  • Vaccinations
    All of our cats receive at least their first vaccination before leaving Woodlands. Any cat who has not yet received it, will also leave us with a voucher for Rufford Veterinary Group for their second vaccination. It is of upmost importance that your cat has the same type and brand of vaccine for its second vaccination as the first vaccine. Hence we ask you to return to Rufford Veterinary group to get the second vaccination regardless of which veterinary practice you would normally use.

This care costs over £175 per cat to Woodlands Animal Sanctuary but rehoming a cat from Woodlands means we only ask for a donation of £85 for one and £160 for a pair.

Our Rehoming Process

All of our applications go through the same three-stage process. This helps us to ensure not only the cats safety, but that you and your new cat are the perfect match. Please also pay special attention to our rehoming rules outlined at the bottom of this webpage.

Rehoming Rules

We will not rehome an adult cat into a home where there are existing adult cats.

We ensure that no cat or kitten is released to its new home until 48 hours after its vaccination.

If there are other pets in the household i.e. dogs, we will normally recommend a kitten unless we have an adult cat who is used to living with dogs.  Dogs are able to come to the Sanctuary to be introduced to the cat.

All existing cats in any household must be neutered.

All cats and kittens that leave Woodlands Animal Sanctuary must leave with the food and litter that they are currently using here, this can be purchased from our onsite shop.

The Cats

Millie
Millie


This beautiful girl is Millie, who is approximately 6-7 years old.

Millie came into our care on the 6th February. She was found as a stray and taken to Rufford Vets to be health checked and looked after before being brought to us. Millie has a mild heart murmur which could be a problem for her in the future, she is also on special food as she has a tendency to throw up when given regular food. She has been health checked, vaccinated, microchipped and spayed.

Despite her health condition, she is a beautiful, friendly cat who adores to be stroked. She has a couple of funny quirks which include walking like a crab while getting her strokes and having the cutest meow! Millie needs an understanding and loving home.
Jack
Jack
NOT AVAILABLE UNTIL THE 20TH JUNE

This handsome lad is Jack, who is approximately 8 years old!

Jack came into our care on the 15th March with his friend at no fault of their own. His previous owner moved abroad and could not take Jack or his friend with them.

Jack is very timid, and whilst he can tolerate human presence, we would rather him be a stable cat. He will be much happier in his own space living his life under the watchful eye of a human friend
Rolo
Rolo
This cat is currently awaiting a health check! But if you are still interested, please fill out our application form!

This handsome lad is Rolo, who is approximately 9 years old!

Rolo came into our care on the 28th May after someone had spotted him in the marshes. Believed to be a lost, Rolo was scanned for a microchip and actually had an owner. Sadly his owner no longer wanted him after they moved out and left him to fend for himself.

Rolo, whilst likes to hide, is very sweet and affectionate with a little bit of encouragement, despite what he has been through. Rolo would be a great house cat and would provide a family with lots of cuddles!
Kitty
Kitty
This cat is currently awaiting a health check! But if you are still interested, please fill out our application form!

This gorgeous lady is Kitty, who is approximately 4 years old!

Kitty came into our care on the 30th May at no fault of her own. Kitty's previous owner was moving property and could no longer keep her, therefore she is looking for a new home with us.

Kitty is a very sweet, soft and playful cat who absolutely loves cuddles!! She would be an ideal cat for a family who has children and even dogs as she is used to both. She is a real family cat and has so much love to offer!
Jerry
Jerry
This cat is currently awaiting a health check! But if you are still interested, please fill out our application form!

This handsome lad is Jerry, who is approximately 5 years old!

Jerry came into our care on the 25th May when he was handed into us as a 'stray'. This means Jerry's background is fairly unknown.

Jerry does like the occasional stroke, and will often rub up against you, but he will show you when he's done with cuddles! He would benefit with an experienced owner who can offer him safe outdoor spaces.
Harley
Harley
This cat is currently awaiting a health check! But if you are still interested, please fill out our application form!

This gorgeous lady is Harley, who is approximately 5 years old!

Harley came into our care on the 19th May at no fault of her own. Harley's owner sadly passed away and no one in his family could look after her. She was then trapped and brought into us to help her find another home.

Harley is not doing well in a shelter setting and so would really benefit moving onto a new home as soon as possible. Harley has not shown any aggressive reactions to our staff and allows them to stroke her and show her love, however it may take her a while to open up to us. This process may be sped up in a loving home environment with feliway plugins and hiding spots to keep her stress free and calm. She would need an understanding owner to help her out of her shell again.
Sylvester

This handsome lad is Sylvester, who is approximately 5 years old!

Sylvester came into our care on the 25th May due to no fault of his own. After being found as a stray, the person who found him advertised to see if his owners would come forward. Unfortunately this did not happen and thus he came into our care to find a forever home.

Sylvester is a real bagpuss with adorably huge cheeks! He is a vocal boy who loves attention and cuddles! He would make an ideal indoor and outdoor family pet as he is used to children.
Sootie
Sootie
This gorgeous girl is Sootie, who is approximately 13 years old!

Sootie was originally rehomed from us in 2015, but came back into our care on the 19th February 2020! This was due to no fault of her own, as her previous owner passed away. She has had a health check, is neutered, microchipped and is fully vaccinated.

Sootie is a BIG girl (currently over 6kg), so is currently on weight management food. She is a very affectionate cat who would be an ideal lap cat (once she looses the weight!) She doesn't mind being picked up and handled and would suit any home that could provide the cuddles she needs!

Jasper came into our care on the 26th May at not fault of his own, in fact, he was found by a member of the public as a stray with multiple wounds of unknown origin. This person brought him into us and he has quickly became a staff favourite!

Jasper is a very friendly boy, despite what he has been through. He is very vocal and loves a good fuss and doesn't have a bad bone in his body! He loves cuddling with the staff and enjoys climbing and running about!

This gorgeous lady is Melody, who is approximately 2 years old!

Melody is a sweet and vocal girl but can be feisty. This means that she would benefit from an experienced owner who has no other pets or young children. She is however super playful and loves to interact with toys!
