WE ARE NOW OPEN
VISITING IS VIA APPOINTMENT ONLY
If you are interested in rehoming one of our cats / dogs please visit our website first where you will find all of our animals that are looking for a forever home.
Please give us a call first to discuss whether you are suitably matched and we can then arrange an appointment to meet your chosen rehomer.
What have we done to ensure we are meeting guidelines?
▪️ Arranged appointment only - meaning that you will not come into contact with anyone outside of your group & everything will be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly before your visit.
▪️ Only one member of staff or One household in the cattery at any one time.
▪️ Only one member of staff and one customer inside the office at any one time.
▪️Minimal contact with staff, we will have forms and information ready for you to fill out inside the cattery.
▪️Staff will be using correct PPE for your safety.
▪️Plenty of distancing signage & markers
▪️Hand sanitizers available both inside the cattery and outside of the office.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience during this time but we cannot wait to return to our new 'normal' and get our rehomers successfully into their new homes!
The rescue is open to the public for viewing between 11.30am - 3.30pm daily. You do not need to make an appointment, just report to reception on arrival. The fee for adopting a cat is £50.00. They are all vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead, wormed and neutered (if old enough).
If you have seen a cat on our website / Instagram / Facebook page that you are interested in please give us a call on 01905 345655 to discuss whether they are still available. Please be aware that we are unable to reserve any animal via phone or email. You will have to visit us and meet the animal before we can reserve the animal to you and start the adoption process.
Upon arrival please report to reception and a member of staff will be able to show you the cattery.
If you would like more information please visit our homing procedures page.
Below are the current cats available for rehoming:
Wendy came to Danemere because she was found as a stray therefore we do not have any history on her.
Since being with us we have got to know Wendy's personality very well. Wendy is a very confident in herself - she is so comfortable around people she is such a friendly little thing. Wendy loves attention and can be quite vocal in the cattery. Wendy is loving and enjoys a fuss but like most cats, she will also let you know when enough is enough for example - she's not overly keen on being picked up for a cuddle. Wendy likes to weave in and out of your legs and brush up against you for that attention but she also has quieter days where she wants to relax and would prefer to be left alone to snooze or just watch the world go by from out of the cattery window.
We are unsure whether wendy is ok with other cats but she doesn't like dogs and would suit a home with older, more understanding children.
TASH - Male, DSH
Tash has came to Danemere as he was found as a stray therefore we do not have. Poor Tash has been wandering into peoples houses for months, just looking for a cosy place to hide out and rest his head.
He settled in our cattery almost immediately- we think he realised he no longer had to relentlessly search for a home himself, we would do that for him whilst he takes the time to relax! We were told that he can be quite shy and nervous around people at first until he builds trust however, since being with us he is super confident and although he looks like he's been in the wars a little with lots of battle wounds, he is a gentle soul who has lots of love to give.
He loves nothing more than to sunbathe on his cat tree hammock! He likes a good head rub and is a such lovely cat so we are sure that he will find his forever home soon enough.
Tabs - appprox. 10 yrs & Ruby (Rubes) - Approx. 5 yrs
Tabs and Ruby arrived in our cattery as their previous owner has sadly passed away. Unfortunately we do not have much information on either of them.
Ruby is a very wary girl, she is nervous by nature and finds it hard to trust anybody initially, she was originally a stray so we presume that she has had a difficult start in life. Ruby needs a lot of time, patience and dedication to help her feel at ease. Ruby would suit a quiet home - ideally without children. Ruby does not like being picked up but if you approach her camly, she enjoys a gentle fuss. Once she fully settles into the cattery we will update on her personality.
Tabs is very confident, she loves a fuss and will head rub against you over and over until you give her the attention she desires! Tabs can be very vocal and chatty, she is great with strangers and older children. Tabs enjoys being groomed and is ok with being picked up. Tabs is a lovely cat, she would make a perfect companion.
Can be rehomed separately.
Tilly & Toby - DSH, 10/11 yrs
Tilly & Toby have returned to Danemere due to their previous owner moving house and could not take them. They are both currently adjusting to their temporary home in the cattery, they have only been with us a short while and we are still getting to know their individual characters - we will frequently update this as we get to know them both.
Toby is currently apprehensive and more reserved than Tilly, but with time we are sure she will come out of her shell! Toby is friendly once he has established who you are and will welcome a gentle fuss, he also does not mind being groomed. Toby prefers her four feet firmly on the ground and not to be picked up. Toby loves to go outside and will spend most of his time out there exploring the neighbourhood so he would love to be able to do that once more in his new home. Toby has not been socialised with dogs before so we are unsure of how he would react. Toby is not suitable with children.
Can be rehomed separately.
Sooty - DSH, 7 Yrs
Sooty came to our rescue as his previous owner sadly passed away.
Sooty can be quite shy at first with new people but he is very friendly, as soon as you give him a fuss he gains his confidence. He is such a sweet little cat. Sooty does not mind being picked up or groomed and has been introduced to dogs with no issues.
We will update with more information about Sooty's personality as we get to know him.
Rosie (Tortie) and Spicey (Dark Tortie) - DLH, 9 Yrs
Rosie and Spicey have found themselves at Danemere due to their previous owner relocating abroad and could not take them.
Rosie and Spicey are both a little bit timid at the moment (the cattery can take some getting used to at first!) however, they are making improvements and gaining confidence with each new day. They are both looking for quiet homes, without children.
Spicey- Would suit a quiet home with plenty of cosy spots to retreat to. More timid, she tends to hide until she gets used to you but once she does she will come to you for affection - she loves a fuss when she is the one that has initiated it. Spicey does not mind being groomed. Spicey is mostly an indoor cat but will occasionally follow you into the garden but never strays too far.
Rosie- Likes to have a potter around in the garden but never goes far, she does not roam. Rosie is not keen on being groomed but doesnt mind being picked up.
These two gorgeous sisters can be rehomed separately as they did not always get on in their previous home, Spicey is often dominated by Rosie therefore both could benefit and be happier being in a home where they are the only cats.
