Adopting a cat

Why adopt?

Unconditional Love and Companionship: Cats are known for their affectionate nature and can provide companionship and emotional support. They form strong bonds with their owners and are often great cuddle buddies.

Stress Reduction: Studies have shown that spending time with cats can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. The calming presence of a cat and the act of petting them can lower cortisol levels and promote feelings of relaxation.

Health Benefits: Owning a cat has been linked to various health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced risk of heart disease, and improved mental well-being. The presence of a cat in the home may also boost the immune system and reduce the likelihood of allergies in children.

Saving a Life: By adopting a cat from a shelter or rescue organisation, you're giving a deserving animal a second chance at life. Adopting a cat means you're directly contributing to reducing pet overpopulation and providing a loving home for a cat in need.


Rehoming process



Please fill in the application form. We read all applications and get in touch with those that look like a good match for a cat in our care.


Home check

If your application looks like a good match we will contact you to arrange a home visit - this is a mandatory part of adopting.


Meet and greet

Once the home visit is complete we will make an appointment for you to come to the sanctuary to meet suitable cats.


Adoption and post adoption support

We love to see updates about how our former residents are getting on and we offer rescue back up for the rest of the cat’s life.

We are a small team, so we rehome animals within Thanet and the surrounding areas, up to a one-hour drive from the sanctuary.

Ready to adopt?

Before applying, please read through the adoption process so you know what to expect.

All of our cats are assessed individually based on their history and what we learn about them while they are in our care. Every cat has a unique set of needs so please read each profile very carefully. Some are happy in family homes with children and other pets, while some might need to be outdoor in a stable. These requirement are non-negotiable and have been made to help us find the right match between every cat and their new human guardian. We want to make sure all of our cats end up in their purrfect forever home.
