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:

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Terms apply to all adoption applications. 

  • Please keep in mind that we might not be able to provide vaccinations during covid.

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.

(Adoptions currently closed)

Neo and Sparky

9 year / female / indoor

Neo (white with calico) was very apprehensive when she first arrived at her foster home, but once she warmed up to her new surroundings her sweet and affectionate side comes out. She loves to play with humans, and will often bring over her favourite toy mouse for you to throw. Playing fetch is her favourite thing – she must be part dog as she loves to chase after it over and over again. She loves to snuggle up on the sofa, but she has shown no signs of being a lap cat.


Sparky (black with beautiful green eyes), like Neo, she was very apprehensive to start but it wasn’t long before both kitties were zooming around their fosterer’s flat. She loves to play, with so much energy, and despite her age, is very kitten-like. Her favourite toy is her furry snake which she will spend a lot of time chasing. She is also quite partial to a bit of catnip and drinking from the tap.



1 year / female / indoor

Humbug is a beautiful young girl looking for a loving home and family. Most of the time she will be found sitting at the window watching the trains pass by. She loves to explore and needs to know what is behind every closed door.


When she isn’t being nosey, she loves to watch TV. Her favourite TV channel is Cat TV on YouTube and she will watch happily for quite a while before retiring to a comfy sofa or cardboard box for a nap.


Humbug will require a relaxed and patient home where she is allowed time to settle in. It is best to ignore her until she chooses to interact as she will quickly warm up and begin exploring her surroundings.


1 year / male / indoor

When Lionel first arrived at his foster home he was incredibly shy and apprehensive, but he quickly developed a strong bond with his foster family and his playful, loving side came out.


His favourite hobbies include napping (preferably stretched across the entire couch), playing (favourite toys include any form of strings to chase) or cuddling (as long as it's on his terms). He is very good at communicating his needs, especially when he’s hungry.


Lionel would be best suited to a home without small children, as he does tend to play bite.


1 year / male / indoor

Patch is a very sweet tuxedo cat that is very friendly and loving. He might have been a dog in his past life because he is always wagging his tail like a dog. He loves to be with humans and follow you around 24/7. He even comes to you when he is called.


He loves attention and will let you know if he’s not getting enough. He is happy cuddled up in a ball on your lap, or when he is playing with his toys.


He had a bit of a tough past and arrived at his fosterer’s very underweight, so he is quite a small boy. Patch has gained his health back very quickly and loves to eat. He will need a home that is relaxed and patient. Patch previously lived with other cats so would be content living with another cat provided that the cat is also friendly and gentle.


1 year / female / indoor

Puma is the sweetest of cats, she stole her fosterers’ heart in only a few days.


She is super affectionate, she always wants to cuddle and will always kneads to show how she feels safe and loved. She loves belly rubs, being brushed and adores falling asleep on her human laps.


Her favourite toy is cardboard boxes and will never forget to let you know when it is meal time.


She has a very sweet nature, never bites or scratches. She will love and trust you unconditionally and it won’t be long for you to fall in love with her too.


5 year / male / indoor

Boris is a sweet and gentle cat who loves to cuddle and prefers to spend his days chilling out in a comfy spot. He is very relaxed, not easily spooked, and will tolerate being picked up for a few seconds. He is a beauty, with lovely long fur which he is slowly getting better, but he does require the occasional brush.  


Boris is very rarely active unless food is involved. His favourite time of day is feeding time. He will meow, stand up on his hind legs and attempt to grab his food before you’ve even had a second to put it down. Boris will even come when you call out his name – however, this is most likely because he assumes you will have food!!


Boris would be best suited to a quiet, relaxed home with people who are happy to give him lots of love and treats.


2 years / female / outdoor (safe enclosed area)

Joker came to us from a big enclosed garden with her 3 kittens last year and was adopted. Unfortunately, her new sister did not love the company of another cat. She has made huge progress with her adopter. Initially, Joker was very scared of humans but she is a bit more confident now but quite mischievous: she will dig-out plants and steal your food if you are not looking. 

Even though she has improved greatly, she still needs a lot of patience as she is still quite scared of humans but she is not aggressive or attacks. She loves being around where the action is and meows a bit when she is not getting attention, if she is bored or lonely. When she is in the right mood, she will allow some strokes, but this is on her terms.

Joker adores other cats but they don’t seem to like her back as she can be a bit intense! We think that a home with 2+ cats or a home where she is the only cat might be a good option for her. It is unlikely that she will become a lap cat but she has potential to improve. 

Joker is looking for a spacious home ideally with an enclosed garden or safe outdoor area as she is scared of humans and not very street savvy. Follow the stories on Instagram for more details.


3 years / male / indoor

Jim was very nervous at first about being in a new place full of new sounds and smells but he clearly loves being around people so that brought him out of his shell after a few days.


He loves to be involved in everything, he follows his fosterer all over the house to make sure he doesn’t miss anything. He’s very chatty, loves his food and loves to play endlessly. He is hoping his new home will have a cat tree next to a window so he can watch the world go by.


He’ll make a great companion for a person or couple who are mostly at home as he gets a bit anxious without human company and can be a bit clingy. He needs to be the only cat as he’s possessive of his humans and got quite upset sharing a space with another cat at a previous foster home


4 years / male / indoor

This sweet boy has made so much progress regaining his confidence and learning to trust humans since staying with one of our volunteer fosterers. He loves to cuddle and can often be found snuggled up on a cosy blanket. He enjoys watching birds from the windowsill. He is obsessed with humans and will want to have company at every possible moment.


He would be most comfortable in a single or couple household, as he can be quite frightened by sudden movements and abrupt loud noises. He will require a quiet home, a patient owner, who will allow him to feel comfortable in his new home.


2 years / male / indoor

Roger loves pets and will let you know when he wants them! He enjoys a warm cozy blanket and spends a lot of his day snoozing! He is independent but very social and enjoys being near his foster humans at all times.

He is especially fond of teaser/string toys and a scratch post!

He does have a tendency to play bite so may not be suitable for homes with small children. He allows a bit of belly rubs after he’s gotten to know you, and tolerates being held for a few moments.

He is the best little buddy and will make someone extremely happy!


3 years / male / indoor

Vanilla is a shy young boy, but once a trusting relationship is established his playful side comes out. He is incredibly curious – borderline nosey in fact. He has to know what you’ve got hidden in every bag.


He is also incredibly affectionate and loves to be wherever his fosterers are. Either asleep on their lap, or cuddled up with them in bed.


9 months / male / indoor

Shadow has adjusted to life with his fosterer well, regaining his confidence and curiosity. He has so much energy and loves to play with anything he can get his little paws on, be it ribbons or wrappers that he can smack across the room.

When he is not playing, he is relaxing. He will often be found lounging around on the sofa during the day. If you are lucky, he might even take a nap on your lap for a quick cuddle and kiss. Shadow doesn’t like being picked up or carried, he prefers to come to you to get strokes.

Shadow is a timid young boy and can be a little spooked by loud noises and sudden movements, so he will require time to adjust to his new family and home.

Sage - Assigned to an adopter!

6 years / male / indoor

Sage is a very affectionate but shy young boy - it took him over 20 days after arriving at his fosterer’s home before he ventured out for a cuddle.  Since then all he wants is cuddles, and loves to sleep with his fosterers at night. He is a little chatterbox. 

This gorgeous boy is slowly finding his confidence. He can be a little scared by sudden movements and will sometimes hide until he feels safe again. Due to his lack of confidence he is not very playful, but this is sure to change once he is confident enough. 

Sage would be best suited to a quiet and patient home without children where he can gain his confidence back!


6 years / male / indoor

Phil came to us with suspected skin cancer in his ears and after a biopsy, our vet confirmed it was positive. Phil needed treatment included having both ears removed. He has recovered really well and is now looking for a forever home (that is strictly in-doors).


When he arrived at his foster home he was initially very timid, however, once he became more trusting of them he turned into a very sweet and affectionate boy. He loves nothing more than cuddles and would be the perfect lap cat for anyone willing to shower him with love.


He is extremely gentle, never scratches or bites, and would be happy in a home with children, or anyone who has plenty of time for cuddles.


7 years / male / outdoors

Oliver is an extremely playful cat with lots of energy. His fosterer nicknamed him Hulk because he is huge and he wants to play all the time. He is very timid at first, but once you have gained his trust, he loves to roam around and explore. Oliver loves attention, especially in the form of head scratches, but he doesn’t care much for snoozing on people's lap! Oliver is looking for a loving and patient home where he is the only cat and safe outdoor access.

Blu Assigned to an adopter!

3 years  / male / indoor

Blu is very playful and always full of energy. He is very affectionate and likes to sleep with his fosterer. He likes to play with his water, so he is only given half a bowl at a time 😅

He likes to greet his fosterer when she comes home and wants to play as much as possible. Sometimes if she doesn't want to play, he will go for her ankles to try to get her attention.

He sometimes play bites, so he needs a home that will be able to be patient with this behaviour. He is not suited to a home with children but could go to a home with an energetic and playful cat.

Smudge - Assigned to an adopter!

4 years / male / indoor

Smudge is a young and lively, friendly cat. He likes being in the same room as his fosterer, and hates closed doors. He likes sleeping at his fosterer's feet at night, and next to you on the couch. 

He is house trained and uses litter box and cat scratcher well. He’s very communicative with his needs, whether it be a belly scratch, food, or he doesn’t like his litter (he’s fussy about which brands he’ll use!).

He requires a lot of play to keep him entertained and use up his energy so he sleeps at night. Best with a safe outside area to explore, or a friendly cat to play with. Smudge is very active and required lots of play time. 

Fred - Assigned to an adopter!

6 years / male / indoors

Fred is a vocal little cat especially in the morning when he wants his breakfast. He is friendly and confident and more often than not will run towards noises instead of away. He loves looking out the window and bird watching. He is not a lap cat but doesn’t mind being picked up and sometimes even cradled like a baby!


6 months / male / indoor

Maurice is a totally loving kitten, he loves being picked up and cuddled. He is starting to sit on his fosterer's lap. He purrs constantly. 
He’s recently discovered his reflection in the mirror and is obsessed!
Maurice is a young energetic kitty that needs a large space to play and run. He is quite curious of the outdoors so might need a spacious home with a nice window or walks in a harness. 

Susie - Assigned to an adopter!

12 weeks / female / indoor

Susie is a little monkey, she is very playful! She likes climbing and exploring. She's looking for a home with an enclosed garden or somewhere where she has lots of space where she can run around as as she's so young and active. She likes to curl up close to her fosterer when she's sleepy.

Dido - Assigned to an adopter!

3 years / female / indoor

Dido was rescued by our team after being attacked by foxes in the street. Heartbreakingly, Dido lost all of her kittens and one of her eyes to the attack. Luckily, she has recovered extremely well from her surgery, and has been slowly regaining her confidence.


It took Dido a while to come out of her shell, and has become a very curious little kitty. She loves to be with humans, either snuggled up on her favourite chair in their company or following them all around the house. She spends most of her time sitting at the window and watching the world go by. When she isn’t being nosey, she loves to play with her favourite toys, and rarely turns down a belly rub.


She would be most comfortable in a quiet home and would make a loving company to anyone with lots of patience and love to give.

Rudolf - Assigned to an adopter!

3 years / male / indoors

Rudolf is an incredibly loving and gentle boy. Unlike most cats, he settled in almost instantly to his foster home - and settled into a routine within a couple of days. He absolutely loves food and literally licks his bowl clean - and is always ready for more. He isn't necessarily playful - and much prefers long naps on his fosterer's lap or on the couch. He never swats, scratches or hisses and is always ready for a nice cuddle. He really makes the ideal house-cat and anyone would be lucky to adopt him.

Rosie - Assigned to an adopter!

9 years / female / indoors

This pretty girl is so lovable, she will spend hours receiving cuddles and kisses. She will spend most of her day lounging in all of the comfiest spots, and when possible, she will be snuggled up on your lap. Rosie has an iconic look, with very interesting eyes and a cute little diamond shape on her nose. If Rosie doesn’t think she’s getting enough attention, don’t worry, she will certainly let you know!

Tanya - Assigned to an adopter!

7 months / female / indoor

Tanya is a very energetic teenager but loves her morning cuddles. She loves to play with toys, chewing on plants and doing zoomies across the house. She is litter trained, isn't too curious about the outdoors and likes being picked up. She's playful and loves to explore anywhere she can get her paws on. She is sometimes jumpy at loud noises so would love a quiet home with some space to run around in.

Terry - Assigned to an adopter!

6 months / female / Indoors

Officially named Terry's Chocolate Orange and her nicknames are Terry and Terri. She’s the sweetest, loves being warm and cosy indoors, will come over for loves if she wants them, has a very expressive tail, she is very calm and easy going, happy to be picked up and loved. Loves a good in arm snooze. 
Doesn’t like being shut out of rooms and will meow if you don't let her sleep in the bedroom with you.
Overall she’s very sweet, loves attention and cuddles and likes to be in snug comfy places.

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.
