We pride ourselves on being able to help any cat. Some can’t be socialised and are used to fending for themselves which means they are not suited to being a traditional family pet. Farms and stables make a good alternative for these cats by providing them with their own territory with shelter and a food source without being confined to sharing a home with people. All they need is regular food, a warm and dry place to sleep and veterinary care when needed. In return, you will get efficient rodent patrol.

All our cats are health checked, neutered and chipped before adoption. For yards and farm cats, we will travel further than our usual 20 miles for the right home and we can provide a crate and basics. We will remain in the background and help with any concerns, and if ever they need another home, we will take them back.

We work with rescues all over London and further to help find safe places for feral or traumatised domestic cats. They can’t help the way they are so we are here to help them on their journey.

How many cats would you like to take?*

Two/three is the usual amount, but we are happy to provide more.

What type of cats are you looking to adopt?*

We assess each cat on arrival. They will stay with us for one to two weeks (sometimes longer if injured) so we have a good idea of suitability.

Do you mind what age, colour or gender?

Will they be aiding you with vermin (mice, rats or other) control?*

Note that a cat can be a deterrent. The smell of cats can put off the presence of unwelcome visitors.

Have you got an area for them to stay in which they can call home?*

The cats should start off in a large dog crate in a stable, barn, tack room or similar. This will be at least 2 weeks but 4 weeks is advisable. All cats must be fed twice a day and have fresh water always available. A well fed, healthy cat will be the best hunter. They should be treated as any other pet if sick or injured (vet visit or seek advice) flea and worming should be done as much as is possible (flea treatment is monthly and worming every 4 months).

Have you or anyone in your household ever been banned from keeping animals by any court of law in any country?*
