Adoption applications closed
Due to the ongoing COVID lockdowns, applications to adopt kitties have overwhelmed us, forcing the charity to make the difficult decision not to accept new applications for a month. This will permit our small team of adoption volunteers to process the applications already received.
We will continue to put up kitties for adoption, but during this application lockdown these are only available to people who have already submitted applications. Updates to applications and requests to add new cats can be communicated with us via social media. We appreciate your patience and continued support. If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQs prior to messaging.
We will assess the situation at the end of February and aim to be able to accept new applications from March onwards. Any updates will be announced on our social media and the ADOPTIONS page of our website.
We will still continue with our rescuing work and are very much welcoming donations and are very grateful for your support!
Please consider the following before applying to adopt:
If you have fallen in love with a London Inner City Kitty and would like a chance to see if you could be a match, please consider the following before submitting an ADOPTION APPLICATION form:
Please familiarise yourself with our FAQs to learn more about the adoption process and prepare yourself.
For kittens, we prioritise those who are looking for pairs of kittens and in second instance, those who already have one cat.
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.
Please keep in mind that we might not be able to provide vaccinations during covid.
Kitties for adoption
Please note that most ages are approximations as we don't always have the kitty's history.
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.
