A little directory of charity/shelters to help you out;










{many of these have multiple branches too!}

Also, check out the PDSA for education [www.pdsa.org.uk] - they're a wealth of knowledge that also provide first aid courses!

We got a mother and daughter cat from Celia Hammond a few years ago and highly recommend. We also have children so wanted cats that would get on well with them and they were good finding cats that would be happy with us. Mum and daughter in our case have a really strong bond so would recommend as often people just look for a pair of kittens.

Croydon Animal Samaritans to add to the list.

I have a cat that I recently advertised on the wanted section. I can no longer keep him due to an imminent house move

Candy - it's inadvisable to advertise a cat on the internet because anyone who sees your advert can respond and you won't know anything about that person or what they're going to do with the cat - they could want it as bait for training a fighting dog for all you know. Have you tried the animal charities listed above by ED bird. They will visit potential homes to check that people are genuine and that the home is the right one to suit that particular cat. I recommend that you contact Croydon Animal Samaritans [www.croydonanimalsamaritans.co.uk]
Their email address is enquiries@croydonanimalsamaritans.co.uk
Rescue charities will foster a cat first to get to know its character so that it can be placed in a home which suits it, but they don't always have a foster home available as they're often full with rescued animals. I'm sure they will help you but if you have any problem, I know the local cat rescuer for Croydon Animal Samaritans, so can phone her for you if you send me a private message on here to give me your contact details, so that she can get in touch with you. Please let us know on here how you get on, as I'm sure all the cat lovers on the forum will be concerned to see that this cat goes to a safe and loving home.

Further to that, it's known that people looking for pets for bait use a cover person - a well dressed or nicely presentable person to reassure the owner that their pet will be taken care of.

They are paid to do this and the pet will be given to dog fighting gangs.

Just please don't put your pets on social media or gumtree. Go to a recognised charity.

Thanks for all your advice, we are on the waiting list at Celia Hammond and they have been absolutely fantastic. Highly recommend.
