Mattheuw is not ready yet, and may be another couple months, but we can take applications. Matthew is a large aged 1 and came unneutered and his condition is nothing like photo at all. Fur had been hacked off by presume breeder came from as he had terrible skin condition not treated we think. We are treating as if it is ringworm and all fur will be clipped off at neuter so we can easier apply cream. He will be vacc and neutered shortly. He is on expensive oral meds like Esmie and will not be homed until we and vet are happy with his condition. We presume he has rarely been in a house as all house noises and movements scare him. He needs someone home alot who will work with him, as we have for months. Poor baby and not his fault he was probably a breeding stud and his needs came second to his use. It is shocking how unsocialised he is. But a sweet boy and not aggressive. Lived with other cats but we do not want with more than 2 others and they must be non dominant and fine to be only pet. Not to live in a tiny flat as he has maybe lived in a pen or shed his whole life and in time we want to have space and alot if love he has not had. Adoption fee will be 400 to just go towards his petrol costs to collect, expensive oral meds until his skin is better, vet work, costs to care for him for months and months. No dogs, no kids under 14. Indoor.

 

Adoption fee will be 400

 

Before applying for a Strawberry cat please read the following.

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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 fosterers 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.
