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.

Tanya

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.

Smudge

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. 

Gabriel

9 months / male / indoor

Gabriel is very well-behaved, friendly and chatty. He loves playing and running around and is full of energy. He loves following his fosterers everywhere and would like to learn how to explore the outdoors with a harness.
He loves belly rubs but doesn't like to be held.

Susie

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.

Blu

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.

Terry

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.

Maurice

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. 

Fizbo

3 years / male / indoor

Fizbo is a lovely cat. He enjoys stretching out and having his tummy and chin rubbed and very adorably sometimes sticks his tongue out when he sleeps. He can be quite frisky in the morning but generally likes a good long nap in the afternoon. He tends to follow his fosterers about so it sometimes can feel like you have a small furry shadow, and he'll generally come and sit next to his fosterers wherever they go. He also, for some reason, really enjoys playing with hairbands!

Annie - Assigned to an adopter!

8 months / female / indoor

Annie is the perfect cat! She is adorable, friendly and cuddly. She has no problems being picked up to get lots of cuddles. She is a curious kitty that won't be scared of new people. She gets along with other cats.

Marnie - Assigned to an adopter!

11 months / female / indoor

Marnie is a gorgeous, loving and friendly kitty. She is super chilled and can be cautious of new people but once she trusts you, she is very friendly, she will come to greet you and to have her head stroked but is also quite independent. She loves playing with toys, especially the teaser toys. She would get in well on her own or with another cat.

Lenny & Beau - Assigned to an adopter!

5 months / male / indoor

Lenny & Beau are such sweet little tabby kittens. They took a little while to settle into their foster home and became less cautious with time and by learning to trust. They are quite energetic in the morning & evening so would like some space to be able to run around in. They love playing with the teasers, with balls and anything that moves really. They are both quite curious but Lenny is much more confident of the 2, he is happy to be stroked, whereas Beau is more skittish. He likes to come close but still maintain a safe distance. They would need somewhere where they feel very safe and someone with some patience to help them feel settled.

Izzy & Simba II - Assigned to an adopter!

10 weeks & 14 weeks / female & male / indoors

​Izzy is an adorable little princess. She had a hard start to life after being bitten and needed to be nursed back to health. Izzy has become more and more confident and comfortable with cuddles - although she likes them being on her own terms. Izzy didn't like any cats until she met her adopted brother Simba, who she adores. Simba has helped bring her out of her shell and they are getting closer to cuddling and snoozing together. Whereas Izzy used to hide for a snooze, she will now cuddle up and sleep in plain sight - and doesn't mind being woken up for tickles on her little face. Izzy will run excitedly over to her foster mums when called, and makes a cute little growling sound while purring and enjoying cuddles.
Simba is a beautiful, sleek and curious boy. He loves cuddles and gently pawing at his fosterer to play. Simba is a little shy and his new sister Izzy often bosses him about. Simba loves tickles under his neck and is always purring.

Panda - Assigned to an adopter!

5 years / male / indoor

Panda took a while to gain trust with his fosterers. He got more cuddly and he definitely loves human company. As soon as someone sits on the sofa, he will jump up for cuddles. He has started playing with pieces of ribbon and lasers. He is very calm but sometimes likes to play bite and does not enjoying belly rubs.

He’s totally confident around strangers and will come right up and say hello or snuggle up to them on the sofa. It will take some time to learn what he likes and doesn’t like, he’s very purry and cuddly but he can be a grump when he is not on the right mood.

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.
