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 adopt in pairs of kittens and in the second instance, those who already have a young cat. Kittens homed on their own risk having behavioural issues when they grow up like bitting and scratching.
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 (unless you have a catio), please read our FAQs for more information. We are an indoor first cat rescue. This applies to kittens as well.
Terms apply to all adoption applications.
Please keep in mind that we will 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. If a cat is no longer on this page it means that the kitty has been adopted or could have temporarily been removed. This page is the most up-to-date place for the cats we have up for adoption.

Samson “Sammy” is a hugely affectionate teenager that’s finding his independence.
He’s a fiercely loyal and cuddly little creature. He’s smart, active and craves human attention. He's looking for a home where there are humans around for the best part of the day as he struggles when left home alone for long periods of times.
He’s looking for an experienced home in a quiet neighbourhood where he has lots of territory to explore. He is quite territorial and isn’t shy when using his claws, so would not be suitable for a home with other pets or children.
Samson has come from an abusive background he has learnt to protect himself and ask questions later. Due to this he can express some unwanted behaviour, but he is improving with time and learning how to interact appropriately with his family to get what he wants (mainly attention and food). He is still making progress, and he requires a patient forever family who has experience with cats, to continue him on his recovery journey - ideally with space for a timeout area when he is over stimulated. Learn more about him on his Instagram @fostermiaow

Tyson is a super sweet, affectionate and very playful kitty! He loves to be around people and will happily watch you go about your daily activities and rub against your legs. He also loves to snuggle up and is most comfortable curling up next to you in his own little spot to sleep. He doesn’t appreciate too much attention when he’s sleeping - boundaries are important - but he will tell you when he’s had enough!
He’s got lots of personality and is quite curious - he’ll explore every inch of the house when he’s not busy zooming around! He loves to be chased, but is also very happy to entertain himself with a catnip toy or a box he can jump in to.
Tyson is very confident and will often chirp at you for attention or food. Sometimes he can get annoyed when he doesn’t get the treats he wants (he wants all of them!) and he may bat you with his paw to get his way. He’s very good-motivated - he thinks every food packet being opened is for him and will try to steal your food when you are eating!
3 years / male / intdoor
Liam is a very friendly boy who relaxes around people quickly. When he first arrived at his foster home he would hide if he heard people outside, but settled very quickly and is now a very brave boy, and getting less nervous by the day.
He will occasionally meow early in the morning to let his fosterers know that he's ready for breakfast / that he's still there. He likes chilling out in safe spots like under a table or the sofa, but also spends time around the house.
He's not shown any interest in the great outdoors, and prefers to observe what's going on inside the house (when he's not napping in the living room).
3 years / female / indoor
Alice is an extremely active and intelligent cat. She loves head and chin scratches, but isn’t a big fan of belly scratches (she enjoys her personal space). She loves to be the centre of attention and often gravitates towards the room with the most number of people in, before slipping out once she’s had her fair share of pets. She enjoys sitting next to you while you work, and you’ll find that she enjoys your company just as much as you do hers. She often likes to sit still like a statue and observe the room, but over time, you may find her sitting in your lap
There is never a dull moment with Alice around, as she enjoys her naps as much as her energetic play time. You’ll find her lunging at and attacking the scratching post in the afternoon, as well as any moving string/wires. She’ll even go for your feet in the morning in an attempt to wake you up for breakfast! She is very food motivated and devours any food / snacks - especially chicken flavoured (be careful of her stealing your food!).
One thing to be aware of when taking care of Alice is that she will sometimes become stressed when left alone - especially with closed doors blocking her access to you. She is looking for a home with no children.
Dennis - assigned to an adopter
2-3 years / male / indoor
Dennis is a friendly cat that loves pets and chin scratches, although he’s not keen on being picked up.
He is still quite shy but give him pets and you’ll win him over. He likes his food and will let you know when he’s hungry but he’s generally very independent and is happy enough napping away in the warmth. A rare one for cats but he doesn’t seem keen on dreamies. He keeps himself very clean and has a perfectly kept coat.
4 years / male / indoor
Donnie is a handsome, intelligent cat with lots of quirks. He is very communicative and will use chirps, meows and head signals to ask you to follow him! Over 4 months of fostering he has changed a lot - he didn't care at all about humans at first, and now will sleep on the bed all night and ask to come on your lap throughout the day. With calm attention and devotion to his development, you will find that he becomes warm and snuggly in his own time.
He has lots of quirks which we hope you will find just as funny as we do! He has a permanent frown but this doesn't mean he's grumpy. He has very long legs and is a talented football player - wait till you see him leap across the room. Although he's very strong and a great hunter of string (watch out, he may tear it out of your hands and you have to be careful that he doesn't swallow some..!), he is never aggressive. He's the definition of a big softie.
He spent some of his life as a stray and needs a family who can understand these behaviours and put time into his development. He has some problems with food insecurity so needs a consistent and calm feeding routine. For this reason, we ask that he goes to a home without children and with a separate kitchen where the door can be shut most of the time. He will also eat any food left lying around, so needs a family who can be in control of this.
He's a rewarding, funny, loving boy. His fosterers will miss him lots but hope he can find a family who loves him as much as they do, and can give him the extra care he needs.
Mia & Lily
2 years / female / indoor
These sisters are very sweet, playful cats. They would appreciate a larger space or even an enclosed garden as they enjoy exploring and running around. They also sometimes play fight with each other. Both girls love playing with toys and ribbons and chasing after ping pong balls, and have recently discovered that they love chasing the red dot from a laser pointer!
Lily is very soppy and loves a fuss, and will roll on to her back to get your attention. She'll come and nap on the bed with you when it's cold out, and will even request your attention until she flops over against your arm! Mia is a little more skittish and doesn't enjoy strokes as much as Lily, but does like a cheek scratch and will even tolerate her paws being stroked if she's feeling sleepy! She's a people cat though - she always wants to be close by and will often ask for attention.
They are still quite easily spooked, but they are learning to trust humans more and more each day - they follow their foster mum around the house and will always be close-by. The girls need a patient home, as they will most likely hide for the first few days/weeks. They would suit a chilled home without kids, with one or two owners so they can continue to gain more confidence.

Meet Busik He is a very playful little chap, who is always chirping and loves a good stroke! He was found outdoors on his own and is looking for a nice indoor/outdoor home.
His main motivation is food, and when he’s not munching on something yummy, he’s sound asleep in his favourite sunny spot.
Busik is an outdoor kitty, he likes to make friends with the neighbourhood kitties. He will need a home far away from busy roads. He will need some help while he gets used to his new home as he will have to be kept indoors for a couple of months while he adjusts so he doesn't get lost.
He is a very sweet kitty, and would make the perfect companion to anyone with lots of love to give!
5 years / female / indoor
Nala is a beautiful Calico girl who is very curious, playful and a little mischievous. She becomes very affectionate once she has gained the trust of her human, and will happily accept being picked up when she is in the mood.
She will not be suitable for a home with children as she can be antisocial when she is frightened. If you can’t seem to find her anywhere, we suggest looking under your coat, as she loves to burrow under them. She also requires multiple scratchers around the house as she loves to scratch.
She also loves to bird watch and demands attention when you arrive home. However, she can get overstimulated and tends to give a warning when she had had enough pets, so she needs a family that will be sensitive to her affection needs.
8 years / male / indoor
Arthur is a very mellow cat to look after and has warmed to his fosterers really well. Although he isn’t a very cuddly cat and pretends he doesn’t like you stroking him, he loves it really and sits next to his fosterer while she works, and loves walking over her for attention. At least a couple of times a day, he zooms around the place which is very funny to watch. He loves his food a lot! He also loves his little mouse toy he plays with most days. When Arthur goes to sleep, he doesn’t like being very far from humans and curls up close. He is nearly always swishing his tail and even follows us to each room like a dog which is really sweet.
Arthur is very food motivated, even when he’s got food in his bowl, he will want human dinner! He will need help with the scratching post as he sometimes prefers the sofa, again we don’t encourage it but is impossible to stop him.If someone wants a cuddly cat, Arthur wouldn’t really be the best choice – he doesn’t mind you picking him up now but will only stay in your arms if you are standing by the garden door so he can look out. He would love a catio or a cat proofed garden or balcony. He also has a funny habit of throwing his paw at your legs if he is annoyed or wants attention; oddly, often this is in the dark. He would really like a safe outdoor area or a large place to explore.
Constance & Camila
2 years / female / indoor
Constance and Camila are believed to be sisters! Camila is an active, very friendly and snoozy cat. She loves cuddles but also loves her own space watching the birds and squirrels from the window ledge. Genuine sweetheart, kind natured and so much love to give! She is a very adventurous cat and loves to explore her surroundings. Camilla has a new love of cat tv and watching tv while snuggles on the sofa or bed. She enjoys wet and dry food and will definitely get your attention when she’s hungry! Camilla loves a tickle and good chin rub, chasing ribbons and playing with toys.
Constance is a very quiet and sensitive cat, but loves to play! Once she’s comfortable she will play with toys and snuggle in her favourite spot on the sofa.
She is an absolute sweetheart but very shy to begin with, has a lot of love to give she just needs to feel comfortable and confidence. She likes her hidey places during the day and loves to come play for dinner time. She loves food, wet and dry and will happily remind you it’s time to eat.
Constance loves dark warm corners and climbing high to look out of the windows at the nightlife in the garden!
Malcolm - assigned to an adopter
5 years / male / indoor
Malcolm is a special boy with a unique personality. He loves to lounge around wherever he pleases, often chirping before settling down.
He especially loves his human contact and will often find comfort in resting in his Fosterer’s chest or snuggling under a blanket side by side. When you enter the room he will greet you by sniffing your face. He is an extremely affectionate cat and is calm with other cats.
Malcolm enjoys playtime which may lead to zoomies which is also a delight to watch.
Malcolm came to us with the risk of losing an eye, but his amazing fosterer helped us save his eye!
Chloe - assigned to an adopter
2 years / female / indoor
Chloe is suuuuper confident and happy since day one!
She needs pretty much constant attention but she’s such a rewarding cat. She loves to play and cuddle and always wants to be with her humans. She’s so easy I think she’d be fine with older kids that will play with her and have experience with cats. She needs so much attention a house with lots of humans! She loves her food and is extremely active and she’s a great climber. She would need a family that is comfortable and is able to provide her with high places to explore (cat shelves, etc).
She’d love a big home, a catio or a cat proofed garden. She is always running around and looking outside the windows.
She is by no means a low maintenance cat so she'll need an absolute cat lover that will adore her!
Olivia & Charlene - assigned to an adopter
1.5 years / female / indoor
Olivia is a shy but gentle cat. She likes to be around her humans and loves strokes on her own terms - this means sometimes she’ll gladly accept the pets (and purr 🥰), but sometimes she’ll run away.
She loves play time and can spend hours watching the outdoors or chasing a fly. She also loves playing with her foster parents and cat toys. She enjoys chasing a ball around the bed when her foster parents sleep!
She doesn’t like loud noises, and will be cautious if there are guests at the house or there are video chats going on. She’ll do best with a quiet family (no kids), and will enjoy having a big space or a safe outdoor space to explore.
Charlene was recently re-united with his sister, Olivia and she is now starting to enjoy pets. With the help of Olivia, she has started to gain confidence in humans. They are both happy inside but would welcome a safe outside area.
They are both still learning to trust humans and have come such a long way. They both have the potential to make much more progress, so their family will need to be patient with and have experience of owning cats before. Learn more about them on their fosterer's instagram @natalijafosters.
Koko & Kitty - assigned to an adopter
1.5 years / female & male / indoor
Brother & sister Koko and Kitty settled quickly in to their foster home, and are very sweet and affectionate. They're quite dopey, and are always curious to meet visitors.
Kitty is a big lazy boy who loves lounging behind the TV all day, while Koko will sit on your lap and 'help' you work. Their favourite things are chin scratches and being showered with attention.
At night they like to play chase and run around so would suit a big home with space to roam or a cat-proofed garden (as they are very friendly and might get themselves lost outside).
Lula - assigned to an adopter
9 years / female / indoor
Lula is a one-eyed kitty that is shy at the start but will settle in. Her family is moving away from the UK but can't take her with them, so she is now looking for a quiet home where she can feel safe and loved. She loves attention and will give her fosterer a little slap when she's had enough. She is looking for a home that has experience with cats as she might give a little hiss now and then, but she isn't aggressive.
She must be kept indoors at all times for her own safety as she can't defend herself with one eye, and is looking for a home with no young children but should be OK with teenagers.
Todd - assigned to an adopter
8 months / male / indoor
Todd is a sweet, gentle, funny and playful kitten. Since living with his fosterer he’s gone from shy and skittish to playful and loving. He trots around the house to be in the same room as his fosterer, is super chatty, and is very social and friendly, even with visitors.
He loves to play with his toys, and a feather on a string goes a LONG way (you will get tired of it long before he does). And if you sit on the sofa, it’s only a matter of time before you’re joined by a little sofa buddy to cuddle up to you to watch telly with. At first he was a bit clumsy with how to sit squarely on a human’s lap… but now he’s got it sussed!
He is extremely social and seems happiest when around humans so he’d suit a couple or family where someone will be around as much as possible.
The boy can’t get enough of food, and will do anything for a Dreamie. For a kitten he’s fastidious with the litter tray and is very clean. Sometimes he even returns to the litter tray to make sure everything is tidied up properly!
A fantastic little personality, super inquisitive, loves a little windowsill where he can sit and watch the birds, and he’s cute as a button and soft and fluffy to boot.
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. Please ensure you review all the points above as these will be covered in the interview.
The adoptions team will reach out for an initial interview if a potential match is found, if the interview goes well, 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) . 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.
