Cats Needing Homes

last updated
27 November, 2015

The following cats are looking for homes just now, as well as many others in the Shelter. Some have had a difficult or fearful time before coming to LCR, so may need a quieter home or a patient, experienced owner. Our experienced staff are happy to advise on matching up the right cat to the right home.


Could you find a place in your heart and your home for any of these cats? If you are interested in any of the cats please contact the Shelter on 01875 821025 for more information and to check that they are still available. We usually have up to 60 cats in the Shelter, so do come along and visit as we may have just the very cat or cats for you and your family.

All cats are spayed, flead & wormed before homing.

Gucci the catGucci is a very affectionate 4 year old tabby and white lad. He’s got a heart murmur but it causes him no problem at the moment, and he’s not on any medication and can go out and about fine. He came here when his owner moved and couldn’t take him. He hasn’t been used to other animals or children so far, but his sunny personality should make him a loving pet.

Halo & Haven, two lovely cats

Halo and Haven are a shy gentle pair of 2 year old females. They got on fine with kids in their previous home, but as a child there was allergic to cats these two unfortunately had to go. Both are ginger, but Haven has a paler shade of fur. A home with a garden together would be good for them.

Lunar the catWhen Lunar’s owner died this quiet, purry tabby lass with big eyes and a wee white chin had to come to the Shelter. At a mature 15 years old she has medication for hyperthyroid, but is active and would welcome getting outdoors from her new home. She hasn’t been used to kids or animals so far.

Holly and Charlie, two lovely cats

Holly and Charlie are two shy but friendly females whose past owner’s ill health means they need a new loving home together, preferrably with a garden. They get on fine with older kids, and have lived with 2 other cats and a Staffie dog. Holly, aged 7, is grey and white, and black and white Charlie is 6.

Bobby the cat

1 year old Bobby is a bit nervous in the Shelter, and has not been used to kids in his previous home, but he may be ok with other animals, and he responds well to cat treats, so this black and white boy with a white stripe down his nose should settle down in a tranquil home where he can get outside when he’s more confident.

Shadow the cat

Big grey Shadow is a bit shy at the moment, and at 2 and a half he’s never lived with children so far, but he should be fine with other cats. His previous owner is moving and can’t take him, so Shadow is looking for someone, preferably with a garden, who will give him a new permanent home.

Phoenix the catPhoenix is a friendly black and white 4 year old female with big eyes, but she’s a bit nervous at the moment, and hasn’t been used to children or animals. She came to LCR when her owner had an operation and could no longer look after her. A home with a garden would suit her best.

Chase the catA talkative, purry friendly boy called Chase is very friendly and fine with kids over about 5, but he was kept indoors in his past and as a lively 1 and a half year old he does need to get out and about. Chase has soft black fur with a white bib and toes.

Tom the cat

A black and white 3 year old lad called Tom is a bit timid at the moment, but should respond to patience and love, and may be ok with kids and cats. He was found as a stray so would be best in a home with outdoors access.

Candy the cat

Candy is 1 year old with black fur and a white bib and paws. She’s a bit wary of people at the moment, but is used to lots of cats – her previous owner gave her up as she had too many. An owner without young children who can build up her confidence, and gradually let her out to explore would suit her really well.

Mabel the cat

4 year old Mabel is very scared in the Shelter after being found straying but she may be ok with children and cats when she’s settled in a peaceful loving home with outside access. She’s a semi-longhaired tabby tortoiseshell lass.

James the catJames, aged about 3 and a half, came from a farm where he was friends with another cat called Henry, so he enjoys an outdoor life. He's a shy lad but he likes to be stroked and petted - and loves cat treats! He should get on alright with older children.

Junebug the cat

Junebug is a 10 year old white female cat whose past owner is moving to rented accommodation where a cat is not permitted. She was a bit grumpy when she came to the Shelter, though her sunny side has now appeared again. She's looking for a patient, loving owner without kids or other animals to spend her senior years with. She appreciates a wander round the garden at the Shelter.

Sooty the cat

Sooty came from an owner who could no longer look after him. 3 year old black Sooty is a bit timid in the Shelter, so is looking for a new calm home with a caring owner, maybe with other cats and/or children over 10, who can bring back his confidence and in time allow him outdoors.

Korky the cat

Korky is a small black and white female who needs a confident, experienced owner, as she has been kept indoors till now and can be rather feisty. She has never lived with other animals, and would be best in a home without kids under 10, and with a garden. She came to the Shelter due to the illness of their owner's partner.

Beau, our very special cat

Thankfully, the majority of the cats that come into our care very quickly find themselves loving forever homes. However for various reasons, some cats are with us for a longer stay. Click on the image above to see our special featured cat.

Mum cats being cared for in foster homes

We often have some mum cats whose kittens have been homed and are therefore ready to move to homes of their own. We try to home them directly from their foster homes to avoid them going through another stressful move to our Shelter, so if there is a phone number beside the picture of the cat you will know it is a mum cat.

Phoenix the cat

Phoenix is a fluffy black and white 4 year old female whose past owner had an operation and can no longer look after her. She’s friendly, but on her own terms as she’s not been used to children or animals in the past, so a new adult home with a garden would probably suit her best.

Honey the cat

A ginger and white cat called Honey came to the Shelter when her owner could no longer look after her. She’s 3 years old, and very affectionate once she gets to know you. In her previous home she was used to other animals but not to children, and she’s been indoors till now, but would benefit from outdoor exercise.

Oscar & Annie, two lovely cats

Oscar and Annie are 3 year old brother and sister who came to the Shelter as their past owner can no longer look after them. Oscar is larger, semi-longhaired and tabby, whereas Annie is smaller and has a bit more white fur. They love to be petted, and have lived with a small dog and been used to a young child too. A home with outside access would suit them well.

Splodge the cat

Splodge, a little 7 month old white cat with black splodges is very scared at the moment, having been tormented by children in his past home so he’ll need an experienced loving owner (without kids!) who can encourage this wee lad to trust again. He may be ok living with a quiet dog, and would certainly appreciate a garden to go out into when he’s older and more confident.

Minion & Trinity, two lovely cats

A pair of 2 year old females called Minion and Trinity get on fine with kids, but the child in their past home was unfortunately allergic to cats, so this shy but friendly pair are looking for a new owner with a garden and no other animals who will enjoy having both of them. Trinity is tortoiseshell, and Minion is white with tabby blotches.

Buck the cat

Buck came to the Shelter from a home with 15 unneutered cats. Though tabby and white Buck is 2, he is small and timid, but strokeable so a quiet, patient owner could soon socialise him. He's never lived with children, but from his past life, he's very used to other cats! He’d appreciate getting outoors in time.

Jet the catA shy but friendly little black cat, called Jet, came to the Shelter when her owner could no longer look after her, after she kept having kittens. At 10 years old, though she looks a lot younger, she has now been neutered by LCR, and should be ok with older children and animals. A home with outdoor access would be nice for her.

Magic the cat

Magic is a ‘gentle giant’– a laid-back, friendly big 12 year old black cat with white whiskers and a wee white ‘locket’ on his front, who will probably get on fine with older children. He was upset by another cat in his home, where he was kept indoors, though he’d probably appreciate getting outside sometimes from his new home.

Saffy the cat

Saffy is a friendly tabby female but she can be a bit of a ‘diva’ at times so she’d be best as an ‘only cat’ in a home where she can get outdoors sometimes, but with no kids under about 12.

Molly the cat

Molly arrived with us in February 2015 and is a black and white female of 8 and a half looking for a quiet home without other animals or children, as she was getting very stressed in her previous home. She is a friendly girl, although she will let you know when she's had enough! She will need garden access.

Mister the cat3 year old Mister’s face shows the hard life he seems to have had living for months as a stray. However this black and white cat is really looking for affection, and wants to be friendly. He needs an owner without children whom he can trust, and a garden to relax in.

Liam the cat

Liam is a big plumpish tabby chap who's a bit shy after straying for a while and likes to sit in his comfy nest in his outside pen, but he is fine when stroked - especially when coaxed with cat treats! He hasn't been used to kids as far as we know, and could be dominant if homed with other cats.

Chick the cat

After being unwanted, Chick is very scared in the Shelter, so this 1 year old black and white lady with a wee black nose, whose kittens have been homed, is looking to build up trust with a new loving owner, and in time get the confidence to go outdoors and perhaps meet other animals and children for the first time.
