Please consider the following before applying to adopt:
Out of consideration to our very small volunteer teams it is important that you read the points below carefully before submitting an ADOPTION APPLICATION form:
Thoroughly read our guide for newly adopted kitties to have realistic expectations of the responsibility of owning a kitty.
Please familiarise yourself with our FAQs to learn more about the adoption process and our response times.
For kittens, we prioritise those who are looking for pairs of kittens and in the second instance, those who already have one cat.
Kittens get the most interest and we only rehome them as indoors and very rarely on their own
The most applications we get are for kittens, so please be aware that we might not get to you, let us know in your application if you would consider other types of cats as well.
Be sure that you are ready to adopt and do not apply on whim out of consideration to our very small adoptions volunteering team.
Think if you are ready for a commitment of looking after a kitty for many years to come (including during their senior years), cats can live 16+ years.
Make sure you get permission to have a kitty at home before applying.
Only submit one application, if you wish to update it, message us via email, Instagram or Facebook and let us know which kitty you like.
Ensure you have specified what kitties you are interested in, including your previous experience so we can get a sense of you and your home to try to find the best fit.
We will only adopt outdoor kitties if they have been used to the outdoor life before or when it is the best choice for the kitty. We will publish this information for each kitty on our website and will assess this on an individual basis and will check the candidate's home for busy streets close by and other possible dangers.
We will prioritise applicants that do not have a cat or have 1 cat. If you 2 or more cats, we will only consider your application for cats who may be considered as 'difficult to adopt'.
Cats specified as indoor cats, should be kept indoors at all times, please read our FAQs for more information.
Terms apply to all adoption applications.
Please keep in mind that we will most likely not be able to provide vaccinations during covid.
We have received hundreds of applications due to covid we won't be able to get back to everyone individually, please read our FAQs to familiarise yourself with our process.
Make sure to check your SPAM or 'Promotions' folder in your email for any communication from us.
Kitties for adoption
Please note that most ages are approximations as we don't always have the kitty's history.
5 years / female / indoor/outdoor
Naomi is the sweetest little girl and is going to make her adopters very happy!
She’s quite chatty and very laid back. She loves relaxing and napping in what looks like uncomfortable places to humans. She spends ages playing with her tunnel toy, and loves to receive attention in the form of scratches.
Naomi is looking for a loving home with an enclosed outside area far away from busy streets so that she can still explore while being safe!
5 years / female / indoor
Dahlia is a super cute and loving little kitty! She was found abandoned and ravenous, and was in rough state so was taken to the vets.
Since being at her foster home we've found that she's very affectionate by nature, but is also cautious (likely caused by some trauma in her past) - so she takes a few weeks to really warm up and trust her humans. This only makes the process more rewarding as you see her come out of her shell and become more loving every day!
She is a very balanced cat - a little playful but also a little cuddly, loves food but never begs, is cautious but not a scaredy-cat - so she’s very easy to have around the house. Dahlia will make a wonderful pet kitty for any lucky human!
2 years / male / indoors
When Taylor first came to us he was terribly shy and frightened - it took almost two weeks before he started warming up. He can still be a bit jumpy, but 99% of the time he’s the most loving and affectionate cat you could imagine.
He loves to spend hours with us on sofa, preferably cuddled up on someones lap. Belly rubs and ear scratches are a favourite! When he’s not chilling he loves to chase stuff around the house - anything in the shape of a mouse goes.
Taylor needs a home that both can be patient with him at first as he settles and that has enough time to give him all of the attention that he craves as he gets settled.
14 years / male / indoors/outdoors
Bjorn is a confident, friendly cat. He’s a big purrer and very vocal, just like his namesake in ABBA!
Bjorn had thyroid issues when he first came to us but he had medical treatment and most recently, an operation and has since stabilised.
He loves a cuddle; sometimes he’s a lap cat but mostly he just wants to snuggle up by your side. He’ll come to get you when he wants to be lazy in bed with you, even in the middle of the day.
Bjorn always gobbles up the gravy from his dinner first. He’s been put on an early renal diet for his kidneys, which he has taken to well. While very docile, he has very occasionally nibbled at toes if he thinks his next meal is taking too long and would be best re-homed somewhere without young children.
He’s a playful boy who loves pouncing on toys around corners, and is incredibly curious to know what’s behind every door in the house. He especially loves packaging!
1 year / fmale / indoors
Briony spends most of her waking hours playing and investigating the behaviour of her human fosterer. She is particularly interested in human activities such as exercise, baking and social gatherings (maximum of six, of course).
She loves the company of others, especially when play is involved, and is incredibly affectionate. She is a very chatty kitty, and she certainly won’t let you forget about meal times. After her afternoon snooze, she likes to snuggle up next to her fosterer on the sofa for a cuddle.
When arriving at her new home, she may be a little nervous so it would be best to keep a litter tray close by. She would love a forever home with a family that spends most of the day at home. If you work from home. she will definitely keep you company.
2 years / male / indoors
Tom is a playful, energetic, and curious cat with a big personality and an even bigger appetite. During the day you'll find him chasing around some invisible prey or sleeping near his foster parent. He's vocal when it comes to food and isn't shy from stealing anything edible from the kitchen counter (so you need to be careful not to leave anything out).
He has the most adorable "chirp" and enjoys being close to humans at all possible moments. He loves affection, and although he is not a lap cat, he will tolerate being picked up for a very brief cuddle.
Tom has been diagnosed with diabetes, and is currently in remission. His food will have to be carefully controlled (high protein only, no snacks that have carbohydrates) and any changes in behaviour or weight must be reported to the vet. He's also FIV+.
Tom would be best suited to a home without small children as he does play-bite. Due to being FIV+ he will need to be kept indoors at all times and adopted into a home with no other pets, or with another FIV+ cat.
16 years / female / indoors
Betty could be the sweetest cat you’ll ever come across!! She loves attention and never ever stops purring. She is incredibly loving and gentle, never scratches or bites, and doesn’t mind being picked up for cuddles.
Although she is 16 years old, you’d not be able to tell as she is still very lively and enjoys investigating new environments and sounds. She recently had some blood tests done and she will require thyroid cream applied daily.
Betty spends most of her time cat napping, receiving strokes, or following her foster parent around the house. She is a confident kitty and will not take long to warm up to her new family.
9 months / female / indoors
Julia was very timid and scared on arrival at her foster home, but once she got to know them a little better her playful side came out. She has turned into a super friendly and lovable young kitty.
Julia is looking for a family that will spend a lot of time giving her attention and playing with her. Her favourite pastimes are playing with her cat wand, and zooming around the house.
She would be best suited to a home without young children and lots of guests as she can be apprehensive of strangers.
2 years / male / indoors
Lindal has become such an affectionate little kitty now that he has settled into his foster home! He loves a good nap, and being in the company of people for the best part of the day. He is very needy and needs a lot of fuss, and can be a little sulky if he is left for two long on his own. Unfortunately, Lindal doesn’t like other cats at all, so would be best suited to a home where people are home for the majority of the day and where there are no other cats.
He sometimes struggles climbing up onto things and benefits from having strategically placed steps so that he can get up safely. He also has a slightly foggy left eye - probably an old war wound - though it doesn't seem to hinder his vision at all!
Pooh and Piglet - Assigned to an adopter!
8 weeks / female / indoor
Pooh and Piglet, the two girls, are stuck together like glue. They both love attention in the form of belly rubs and chin tickles. Pooh has got a name as the most adventurous of the bunch, she is fearless and loves to climb everything – Piglet loves to follow her sister, but is much more of a scaredy cat.
Tigger and Roo
8 weeks / male / indoor
Tigger and Roo both have so much energy, and definitely live up to their adorable names. They love to roll around and playfight. Tigger is obsessed with hiding in cardboard packaging and jumping out on his siblings in an attempt to be scary
14 years / female / indoors
Summer is a very friendly but cautious girl. She is in her element snuggled up in her foster's bed at night, or curled up on their lap during the day.
She loves to investigate her surroundings and has to know the source of every noise that she hears.
Summer is a rather calm cat, that is unless food is involved!! She is still quite skinny and is currently on Renal wet food which she loves.
Although she loves a cuddle, she doesn't like to be picked up.
Flora - Assigned to an adopter!
1.5 years/ female / indoors
Flora is a sweet little girl. She loves to follow her foster parents around the house, and always likes to stay close by. Once she feels comfortable, she will become your best friend - and she might even let you carry her around for a little bit.
Flora is super fussy with food, so don’t be surprised when she makes a scene about the new brand of cat food you offer her.
Freddo- Assigned to an adopter!
8 years / male / indoors
Freddo is a lively chap who is looking for a forever home with lots of space to zoom around and explore!
He has a gorgeous personality, and a lot of confidence. He must have been a lion in a previous lifetime, as he walks around the house like he’s the king of the jungle. 🦁
He’s very chatty, especially in the mornings when his foster parent is trying to get ready for work. He loves a cuddle, and doesn’t mind being picked up – but only if he’s getting hugs.
Owl and Eeyore - Assigned to an adopter!
8 weeks / male / indoor
Owl and Eeyore love to snuggle with each other at night. Eeyore will always be the last to finish eating, whilst Owl, like his name, likes to sit calmly and observe the silly antics of his siblings. These two are shy, but love to join in the fun when they think no one is watching
Rapunzel - Assigned to an adopter!
1 year / female / indoor/outdoor
Rapunzel is a very vocal, affectionate cat - she loves a cuddle, and her favourite thing is to be sat in your lap! She’s a little clumsy - when she’s enjoying a stroking session, she’s been known to fall off the sofa or bed because she’s stretching so much. She also greets her fosterer at the door when they've been out for a while, and she's warm & welcoming to new people and will make your guests fall in love with her instantly.
She likes the internal window ledge and sits in any spot where she can find a bit of sunshine, so we think she'd love a little safe outdoor space. Rapunzel doesn't like doors being closed - she wants to be with her humans all the time, so she'd require a home where someone is home most of the day. She loves to play, and would appreciate the company of another cat.
She’s food-motivated and loves any kind of wet food - her new owners will need to make sure to keep the bin closed as she's been known to go diving... 😹
Rapunzel recently had a benign lump removed from her cheek, and one from her flank. She's recovering well, though her new owners will need to keep an eye on this.
Adopting with L.I.C.K
We will review applications on a cat by cat basis (as they are ready to be adopted), in the order that they came in and we will prioritise the best match for each kitty. Therefore, it is quite difficult to provide timelines.
Once a kitty has been decided and you have been approved to proceed via an initial phone call, we will put you in touch with the fosterer so you can meet the kitty. We try to make this process as speedy as we can, as we don’t want to lose potential adopters for the kitty. Please note that this step is currently done via a video call.
After this, please let us know if you wish to adopt the kitty. We sometimes have multiple people wanting the same kitty, so we would appreciate you letting us know as soon as possible.
We will then arrange the transfer and will do a home check (this can be done via video call during Covid) . Once this is approved, you will have to sign an adoption form. We will change the chip ownership transfer and the kitty is officially part of your family! :)
If for any reason you are unhappy with the kitty, we will take them back.
The Adoption Donation for a kitty is £80.00 or £150.00 for a pair. All donations go towards veterinary care for our kitties. All other costs are paid by fosterers, trustees and volunteers out of their own pockets.
If you are residing in a congestion zone, we kindly as that you help pay for the congestion charge.
