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.
We currently do not have any kittens available for reservation.  Please only fill out our online application if you are looking for an adult cat.  We will keep you updated on our socials when we have kittens available for reservations!  Thank you for your understanding!

Unfortunately we are closed to cat viewing appointments at the moment due to the current situation with COVID-19

The Cats

Neil - reserved
Neil - reserved
This is Neil who is approximately 3 years old!

Neil was brought to us as a stray after roaming the streets for female attention! Thought to be a feral however is actually very sweet!

He came to us on 16th October and is now neutered, 1st vaccinated and chipped.

Since being with us, he has been very loving and likes being stroked and fussed with. His chubby cheeks lure the staff and volunteers in!
Peanut
Peanut
This is Peanut who is approximately 6 months old!

Peanut was brought in due to behavioural issues.

He came to us on 14th October and is now neutered, he has had all of his vaccinations and is chipped.

Since being with us, he does purr like a motorbike and does enjoy the fuss however we don't think he fully understands affection yet. He loves to play and is your typical 5 month old kitten however he will need an understanding home with people who knows he'll need his space. This includes no other pets in the household.

Peanut is also on a hypoallergenic diet with sensitive wet food as he has tummy upsets when put on regular food, so please take this into consideration when applying for him.
Matthew - Reserved
Matthew - Reserved
This is Matthew who is approximately 2-3 years old!

Matthew came to us on the 15th November after being found as a stray on several occasions.

Matthew is a really lovely boy and was settled into our care straight away. He is super friendly and loves the attention!

As Matthew is new in our care, he will need checking by our vet. He is neutered however will need to start his vaccinations off before rehoming, however you can register interest!
Ellie
Ellie
This is Ellie who is almost 2 years old!

Ellie came to us pregnant with a few other cats in the same household, unfortunately her owner was overwhelmed with the amount of cats in her care therefore had the hard decision to give them up. Ellie gave birth to 5 beautiful babies here at the sanctuary and have all got homes lined up for them.

Ellie is a very beautifully sweet girl who charms the pants off all of our staff and volunteers. She craves attention and more importantly food! Ellie loves to play with anything she finds on the floor, so her new home needs to be filled with toys galore! She is also very vocal!

Ellie has just recovered from a nasty virus, therefore isn't available just yet. She also needs her vaccinations and chip in place before we can let her leave us. You are able to register interest.
Kittens
We currently have multiple kittens in our care at Woodlands Animal Sanctuary, and due to Covid-19, viewings cannot take place. Therefore we are please to introduce our Kitten Match Making Service!

No kitten is created equal, some kittens in our care were born on site and raised in warm environments whilst others were brought after they were found under sheds and other cold places. Therefore some kittens are more timid than others and require a specific home.

With our Kitten Match Making Service, we will be able to pair you with your perfect kitten, all depending on their temperament and behaviour, as well as your current home situation. If you are interested in rehoming a kitten from us, please fill out a form on our Rehoming During Quarantine page.
Moo - Reserved
Moo - Reserved
This is Moo, who is 8 years old.

Moo was brought into our care on the 11th November due to a house move where her owner could sadly not take her with her.

Moo has a very friendly and sweet nature however she does come with a quirk, she only has 3 legs! Her back leg was unfortunately amputated after a cat tree fell onto it, it was very badly injured therefore vets couldn't save it. She does live without it very well though however will need an understanding home where she will thrive. Her hearing isn't excellent also therefore a house cat with supervised visits to a secure garden would be best.

Moo is currently waiting for a dental appointment, therefore isn't quite ready to leave us just yet. We can accept interest.
Casper
Casper
This is Casper who is approximately 4 and a half years old!

Casper was brought into our care on the 11th November due to his owners illness deteriorated and could no longer look after him.

Despite his grumpy looks, he is a friendly boy who can occasionally give little love nibbles! Casper likes to chill out in his warm and comfy bed but will come for a stroke!

Casper has been neutered, chipped, had his 1st vaccination and got cleared with a perfect bill of health.
Bobby
Bobby
This is Bobby who is approximately 2 years old!

Bobby was brought to us on the 11th November with his friend Johnathon, however they have been separated due to bullying going on.

Bobby has a case of dermatitis which resulted in his fur loss. He is also quite skinny which we are working on. Apart from this, he is lovely and friendly. He can be quite shy on occasions however once he's settled with you in his presence he will come onto your knee for a stroke. Bobby is also very food orientated, therefore will tell you when he's hungry!!

Bobby will need to go to an understanding home who can work on his body condition and give him the care he deserves. He has been neutered, chipped and 1st vacced, therefore is available to be rehomed.
Roxie
Roxie
This is Roxie who is approximately 2 years old!

Roxie was brought to us on the 11th November with her friend Gizzmo as their owner couldn't cope with their behaviour.

Roxie is a very timid little girl who can lash out if she feels unsafe. She and Gizzmo will need to be rehomed together to a very understanding home who can give them the space they need. They both will need a lot of work going in to be able to help them learn to trust people. Hopefully with all that work, they will come out of their shells.

Roxie has been spayed, chipped and 1st vacced, therefore is ready for rehoming.
Gizzmo
Gizzmo

They both will need a lot of work going in to be able to help them learn to trust people. Hopefully with all that work, they will come out of their shells.
