What is the adoption process?

How do I introduce a new cat to my resident pet?
It is important that there is no competition for resources such as food, litter trays or sleeping areas. Exchanging bedding can start the process of ‘scent swapping’. An area will need to be set up for your new cat/kitten, a crate or spare room is recommended. Your resident pet can see and smell your new cat/kitten but cannot harm them. Take care not to overwhelm them and take regular breaks if needed.
What is the process to become a volunteer?
You will need free time and be reliable to come to the Rescue to clean the pens, litter trays and play with the cat/kittens.
What is the process to become a fosterer?
You need to be committed, reliable, caring and compassionate. Have a spare room available in your home, no young children in the home, be able to drive, have a full driving licence and the use of a car to take a cat to our vets and have time to interact with your foster cat.
What tips do you have for finding a missing cat?
Check with neighbours, garages and garden sheds. Sprinkle used litter outside, place strong smelling food e.g sardines, tuna or warm chicken outside your door, go out late at night with a torch calling, shake a bag of treats, post posters throughout the neighbourhood.
