PLEASE DO NOT CALL AS WE DO NOT HAVE RESOURCES TO COVER FOR ENQUIRIES TO ADOPT ONLY FOR GIVING UP YOUR CAT – PLEASE EMAIL IF YOU WANT TO ADOPT AS WE HAVE ONLINE VOLUNTEERS FOR THAT – as some of our volunteers who are experienced are busy with hospital, etc EMAIL STRAWBERRYRESCUE@OUTLOOK.COM
No other rescue would take this group of cats as so many were aged 7 or more. A national rescue offered only to take 2 they would come around and choose from the group of 10 we are told but could not take the other 8 before the lady lost her home of decades.
Meet one of our new arrivals, a gorgeous black smoke British Shorthair called Malachi.
Aged 4 years old and loves other cats.
Adoption fee is fixed at £250 – this is non-negotiable and often doesn’t cover the vet bills we have paid for them. Any donation above the adoption fee will be much appreciated and will go towards helping our other fur babies in the charity.
All vet work and spay will be done prior to re-homing.
Before applying for a Strawberry cat please read the following:
- Unless otherwise stated, our cats are strictly indoor only. This means that windows/doors cannot be left open in any room to which the cat has access. A cat cannot be trained to be indoor only – it must be supervised. All members of the house must be in agreement, and understand about keeping doors and windows closed. We are happy to re-home to a flat but, likewise, this means windows closed and no balcony access, unless the balcony is totally cat-proofed (netting all the way), same is true for roof terraces, so that they cannot drop to their death.
- Unless otherwise stated, we do not re-home to children under 6 years old. If there is nothing stated to contrary, assume the cat cannot go to a child under six. For other cats, please also bear in mind that some cats may also be found to be unsuitable, even for children over 6. WE DO NOT HOME WITH PEOPLE PLANNING CHILDREN, AS SO MANY CATS ARE GIVEN UP JUST BECAUSE CHILDREN ARRIVE OR CATS DEVELOP BEHAVIOURAL ISSUES AFTER BABIES ARRIVING
- It is a requirement of our adoption policy that lifetime insurance is obtained and maintained for every cat adopted. We provide 5 weeks free insurance with every adoption, but the original policy may not suit you and as we are not financial advisors you should seek out the best and appropriate insurance to suit your own needs.
- Most cats are in Greater London, Essex or Worcestershire (an hour from Birmingham), with some fostered further afield like Durham at times. See each listing for details – if not detailed it will be Greater London, London or Worcs. Cats cannot be adopted by public transport – you must be able to collect by car or get a taxi home from fosterer’s home (many get a lift or get a taxi home with cat and things). If you are happy with the above criteria and want to enquire further or reserve a cat, please email.
