Cats for Rehoming
- The rescue is open to the public for viewing between 11.30am - 3.30pm daily. You do not need to make an appointment, just report to reception on arrival.
- The fee for adopting a cat is £50.00. They are all vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead, wormed and neutered (if old enough).
- Below are the current cats available for rehoming:
GYPSY - 10 yrs
Gypsy came to Danemere along with her sister Nutmeg due to a relationship breakdown and moving house. Gypsy and Nutmeg are able to be rehomed separately as they are rarely ever together in a home environment.
Gypsy is a very a friendly, confident fusspot. Gypsy adores nothing more than a good fuss (she will nudge your hand, especially if you're paying more attention to her sister) and will gladly be picked up for a snuggle. Gypsy is a purrrfect lap cat and enjoys the warmth of sunbathing, a radiator, or just curling up next to / on her owner. Gypsy loves being indoors although in her previous home she had access to a cat flap to go in and out as she pleased, she never ventured very far, she prefered staying indoors where it's nice and cosy. Gypsy has lived with a dog before quite happily and would just avoid it so she could potentially live with another dog / cat in her new home. Gypsy is also great with kids.
Nutmeg - 10 yrs
Nutmeg came to Danemere along with her sister Gypsy due to a relationship breakdown and moving house. Nutmeg and Gypsy are able to be rehomed separately as they are rarely ever together in a home environment. Nutmeg is not overly confident and more reserved than her sister, and it can take her a little longer to gain her confidence around you. Nutmeg does like to be stroked and likes to sit next to you but is not a 'lap cat' as such. Nutmeg enjoys the freedom of roaming the outside world, she spends a lot of her time exploring therefore would suit a home with the option of a cat flap. Nutmeg does not like to be picked up or groomed. Nutmeg is not great with children and would prefer an adult home. She has lived with a dog before quite happily and would just simply avoid it so she could potentially live with a dog in her new home.
Titch - 12 yrs - DLH, Tabby & White
Titch was brought to Danemere along with Teddy, Billy and Ginger as their previous owner was moving house and sadly could not take them. Unfortunately we do not have much history on Titch however we do know that he has lived with a dog before and other cats - so could possibly live with others again. Titch is a reserved cat but absolutely adores a cheek rub (as you can see from the photos). Titch does not mind being picked up, or his tummy being tickled. Titch is not overly confident with people at the moment but he's getting there, with gentle fuss he's easily won round.
Ginger - 3 yrs - DSH, Ginger
Ginger was brought to Danemere along with Titch, Billy and Teddy as their previous owner was moving house and were unfortunately unable to take them along. Unfortunately we do not have much history on Ginger other than that he has lived with a dog before and other cats quite happily - so could possibly live with other animals again in his new home. Ginger is quite a nervous cat compared to the others that he was brought in with - it's taken him a little longer to get used to the adjustment of his new surroundings in cattery. At first he would stay inside his hide bed and not want to be disturbed - but now he's gained some more confidence he's been spending the majority his time out of it. With the grumpy look that he can give you it may put some people off from stroking him, he's got a 'resting grumpy face' but once you do give him a fuss he relaxes and seems to quite like a cheek rub. It takes Ginger more time to settle and warm to you - but once he does it is very rewarding. We are going to keep working closely with him to gain his confidence. Ideally Ginger will need a calm home where the owner is understanding of Gingers initial boundaries.
Lizzie - 10yrs - Semi long hair, Tabby & White
Unfortunately we do not have much history on Lizzie however, we do know that in her previous home she was kept as a house cat. Lizzie will need to be the only pet in her new home as she does not like other cats. Lizzie loves a fuss and will roll around happily when she's receiving a cheek / head rub, she will brush up your arm / her bed because she just cannot get enough fuss! Lizzie is super friendly and such a beautiful cat with a gorgeous coat however, she hates being groomed! We have found that when using grooming gloves she doesn't mind as much.
Casper - DSH, Tabby & White
Casper came to Danemere as a stray. He had been visiting the person that brought him to us for 4 months (where he was fed and had a cosy bed area outside) but unfortunately Casper did not get on with their original cat and they thought that he deserved a more permanent home - especially with winter fastly approaching. Casper arrived on Halloween - although he's definitely not a halloween frightmare, he is so friendly, affectionate and loving. Casper would hide for the first few days as he was getting used to all of the strange meows coming from his neighbours however, with a little bit of food persuasion he stopped hiding and has now settled really well. Casper absolutely LOVES his food, he's always munching. He is a sucker for under his chin strokes (as you can tell from the photograph). He purrs and purrs like a little motor bike, and if he's really enjoying it he will knead his bed and drool (lots!) with pure happiness and contentment. Casper doesn't mind tummy tickles or being picked up.
Reggie - 10-12yrs, DSH
Reggie arrived at Danemere from the vets as a unchipped stray therefore we sadly have no previous history on him. Reggie is a super confident little fella, he's incredibly friendly and will meow to say hello! Reggie adores head and cheek rubs. Reggie does not like being picked up. We are unsure as to what he is like with other cats. Reggie has such a sweet little face with a sweet personality to match.
Ebony & Puma
my name is Ebony and this is my brother Puma. We came to Danemere because our
old humans were moving house and we could not go with them. We fitted straight
into the cattery, it was strange at first but we had each other so it wasnít
too scary. If I could describe myself in 3 words it would be friendly (I make
friends wherever I go), playful -those cat teasers the humans give me are no
challenge for me! And lastly, chatty- I love having a natter with the Danemere
staff. My brother has so much confidence. Heís very greedy, sometimes heíll eat
all of his own food and then will steal mine, no wonder heís a bit chunky or
shall I say fluffy? Maybe thatís better wording, donít tell him I said that! He
loves attention Ė but we both do, head rubs, cheek rubs we cannot get enough! Myself
and Puma used to live with mini humans (Children) and we got on sooo well with
them, it was fun. We sound like a dream so far right? We have a slight problem
though, sadly when we were just little kittens we were very silly and drank antifreeze (we didnít know it was bad for us)
it smelt nice and tasted sweet. We didnít know it was so dangerous. Because of
our mistake we now have kidney issues; weíve been told that we are really lucky
to be alive. We are on special food (we feel 1st class in the
cattery, having what we like to call, upgraded food) and we will need to be on
that in our new home, we love it its very yummy 10/10 for the chef. SoÖ now for
the sad news. Our life expectancy is unknown, we may have another 10 years or
just a few months. Honestly, you wouldnít know just by looking at us, we
havenít lost our spark and love life! Sometimes it worries us, what if we donít
find a new home? Will we ever find someone willing to have us knowing all of
our history? If you think that you could
give us a foster home purrrrlease
let the lovely humans at Danemere know.
would like to give Puma and Ebony a new home our vet at Macarthur Barstow &
Gibbs will be willing to talk to you and your vet in detail about Puma and
are fed on Royal Canin Renal food Ė which they will need to be on for life.They really are lucky to be alive and they are
such wonderful cats with heaps of personality and love to give
