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'.
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.

I'm a bit shy to begin with and don't like to be stroked or picked up when I'm just at the start of getting to know you. Give me a few weeks though and I will warm to you, want to play with you all day and will follow you around the house! I like to use my voice a lot and chirp when I'm trying to talk to you, or if theres a fly I'm trying to catch. Once I know you a bit better, I really like being cuddled and stroked.
I would like to be the only cat in the house- and that includes kittens and small kids too. I can get a bit shy when theres lots of noise and lots of people around so would like a calm place to live. I really would like to be close to my person so I'm hoping that you will have plenty of time for me although I can occupy myself too and do like my me time.
In my spare time I play with my toys, look outside the window and nap. It would be great if I could have some outdoor space too, so I can explore!

Pierre is an affectionate, friendly cat who enjoys human company. He gets lonely so would be best suited to a home where someone is home most of the day to keep him company and give him the attention he craves.
He’s a lap cat that loves being stroked and doesn’t mind being picked up. He likes sitting on your shoulder if you’re relaxing on the sofa or sleeping beside you at night. If he is left in another room at night, expect cute little scratchings at the door.
He’s very well behaved and loves his food - he will try to have a taste of yours too. He sleeps most of the day but loves to play in the morning and evenings and loves zooming around the flat. He loves sitting on the window sill watching the world go by and he loves exploring around the flat. He would appreciate lots of space or big windows, or a cat-proofed balcony or cat-proofed outside space.

Kiwi is a very sensitive and polite soul, so much so she will often wait in her hiding place to be “invited” out to come and exploring.
She’s also a shy litter tray user, and gets embarrassed and hides after using it. She will quickly get over it after she gets some catnip though!
She loves affection and will purr very loudly to let you know she’s enjoying herself. She loves to test out each piece of furniture by rubbing her head against it to see if it will do the job, but ultimately nothing beats chin rubs from humans!
She definitely needs a patient owner who preferably is home a lot and can spend time gaining her trust and coaxing her out of her hiding place as she is easily spooked.

When he came into our care, Christophe had ear cancer, which meant sadly he had to have both of his ears removed.
Christophe is a people kitty, he loves being with his humans but also doesn’t mind being left alone for long period of times. When his fosterers are in the living room he will sit next to them, as close as possible and loves being pet on the head!
He follows his fosterer around when awake and doesn’t like to be excluded, but he definitely spends a lot of time sleeping (and looking too cute). If you are after a big softie, Christophe is definitely the one for you.
He is a purring machine, vocal when hungry and getting used to eating at a normal pace (with not many teeth) which means he must have not had much food available to him in the past. He loves attention but also has boundaries.
2 years / male / in & outdoor
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 a 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 young 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 to continue him on his recovery journey, ideally with space for a timeout area when he is over stimulated.

Millie is a friendly, affectionate tabby who settles in very quickly. She absolutely loves people and would be best suited to a household that work from home or can spend a lot of time with her. She loves sitting on her fosterers’ desks in the mornings while they work!
She’s a great lap cat and loves to be stroked, but doesn’t like to be picked up. She enjoys following her humans round and isn’t afraid to let them know when she wants attention/food!
She loves to play with ribbons and her laser toy, but only has about 5-10 minutes of energy at any one time. She likes spending her afternoons napping on one of her favourite blankets or cushions.
She loves zooming up and down our corridor, so she’ll need a large-ish space, and she likes sitting on window sills watching the world go by.
Given her age and size, we think she’d be happy as an indoor cat. We imagine she would be good with older children, but would struggle with small children or babies.
6 years / female / indoor
Lana is an extremely affectionate kitty who loves human company and enjoys cuddles on her humans' laps the most! She's ok on her own for several hours at a time, and is quite chilled meeting new people.
Lana is a cuddle bug, so if you're at home she'll want to sit on your lap, be stroked and cuddled at all times. She doesn't mind being picked up, and is an extremely easy going kitty. She likes to sleep on the pillow next to yours at night.
During the day, she will spend a short time sitting at the window, watching the world go by, but gets bored quite quickly. She loves cardboard and sisal rope scratch pads (especially if you sprinkle a little catnip on them). She also loves being brushed and will purr and roll over when you do.
3 years / male / indoor
Whitepaw is very curious and playful, and loves play time - jumping around to catch toys and playing with string, shoelaces and corks!
He was timid with his fosterers at first, and hid under the sofa for a few days. Since then, he has increased in confidence and is very happy lounging all day or next to his foster purrents while they work. He's not exactly a lap cat, but he loves snoozing next to humans on the sofa, and demands scritches under the chin!
He's very energetic, zooming around the house every morning and before bedtime, so he might need a spacious house where he can get all that energy out! He is very vocal and makes the cutest chirp sounds when he wants something.
He is still a little wary of strangers, and hides under the sofa when there are visitors around. He will need a calm, quiet home as he is a bit scared of loud noises and movements.
3 years / female / indoor
A feisty, independent, gorgeous-faced girl.
She is looking for a calm, mature household who has the utmost patience to bring this cautious cat round to the virtues of human bonding.
She is perfectly house trained and enjoys days sleeping on every armchair available.
Jolene would make the perfect companion to a patient individual to who she can create a forever bond with. She would fit nicely into a home that is calm, or is empty for parts of the day
16 years / female / indoor (FIV+)
When Amy arrived at her foster home, she was very shy. Now she eats treats from their hands!
Because Amy really doesn't enjoy being touched, her fosterers pet her while she’s eating. She still gets startled sometimes, but she will let them pet and brush her all the way to her tail. Although she doesn’t love cuddles, she is completely comfortable hanging around humans.
There’s still a lot of work to be done, but her confidence has improved drastically! 💕
Amy is FIV+ positive so will need to be kept indoors at all times.
Josh & Jed
1 year / male / in or outdoor
The boys are very friendly and love being with people! They're good with children as long as their boundaries are respected. Both are gentle and rarely scratch or bite people. They are quite energetic and love running around and exploring, so would probably do well in a big house or a home with a garden.
Josh is quite independent and calm, he likes being near people and also likes being picked up. Jed is very affectionate and likes cuddles but is quite scared of sudden movements.
They’re very active cats and love play-fighting and chasing each other! Jed does not like being in a different room to Josh and meows if they are separated.
4 years / male / indoor (FIV+)
Brutus is an affectionate soul and has a lot of love to give. He always likes to be close by and will follow you all around the house, will chill nearby with you while you watch TV or curl up on the end of the bed at night.
He can be a bit nervous sometimes at sudden movements or loud noises, so needs a quiet, patient home. He seems to be a little warier of males (his current foster is solo female). He can be very vocal when he wants attention (or food - and he’s ALWAYS ready for food!)
He loves scratches on the top of his head but won’t usually let you scratch around his chin… expect playful biting if you try! He also doesn’t fight too much if you occasionally pick him up.
He loves to chase after the fishing rod toy (although often destroys it if you give him a chance) – his little butt wiggle tells you he’s about to pounce!
Brutus is FIV positive so will need to be kept indoors at all times. He's is very aware of the outside world and sits longingly at the windows during the day. He can be a little sneaky and try to escape through the front door if given the chance!
10 years / male / in or outdoor
Bruno is a very handsome boy, and such a sweetie! He loves human company, and is very chatty at meal times so makes the perfect dinner guest.
His favourite activities are receiving chin scratches, watching the world go by from the window and cuddling up to his humans on the sofa.
Bruno’s not had the easiest life - he lived on the streets for some years, but you wouldn’t know it.
He doesn’t mind being kept indoors, but don’t be fooled - he’s not a small kitty. Bruno will need a large space, and somewhere that he can make his own. He’s very chilled, but like many cats gets scared by hoovers, irons and other loud noises.
Mia & Lily
2 years / female / indoor or outdoor
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!
They aren’t fussy at all about food and will immediately gobble down whatever you give them, and you might want to be careful about leaving left-overs out!
Lily is very soppy and loves a fuss, and will roll on to her back to get your attention - she even enjoys a bit of a belly rub! Mia still doesn’t like to be stroked on her head, but she always wants to be close by and will often ask for attention, enjoying a fuss when she's feeling relaxed.
They are still quite easily spooked, but they are learning to trust humans more and more each day. 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.
Age TBC / female / indoors
Maddie (mama cat) - she likes being stroked, getting her chin scratched and being brushed head to tail. While not a lap cat, she will want to be in the same room as you.
She'll meow for attention and food, and follow you around to let you know - or converse with you while you’re cooking.
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 had thyroid issues but after an operation she is not needing regular medicine anymore.
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.
3.5 years / male / indoor
Bob is a very gentle and loving kitty. He can be a bit shy when meeting new people, but he comes out of his shell quickly. He is not a lap cat and doesn’t really like to be picked up. However, he loves to be kissed on the head and will often kiss you back. He loves forehead and chin scratches and really likes to be brushed - he'll come running the moment you have the brush in your hand!
He loves to play, and string toys are his favourite. He sometimes enjoys watching his fosterers cook (waiting to get a kiss on the head). He is a very polite kitty - he would not even get on the bed or sofa before he was put there, then he made himself comfortable. He sleeps with his fosterer every night, all night, and loves to get some cuddles at bedtime and in the morning.
He can be a bit nervous sometimes at sudden movements or loud noises, so needs a quiet, patient home.
Bob is diabetic, but no longer needs insulin. However, he will need to be on a specific diet and have regular vet checks. He'll also need to be covered by insurance.
8 weeks / 3x female 1x male / indoors
Tito is a copy cat (pun intended) and often copies what her siblings are doing to build her confidence. She is a tad more vocal than others and will let you know when she’s going to use the litter box or when she isn’t happy being picked up.
Willow is the gentlest and fluffiest kitten. She is becoming increasingly confident and an excellent climber as well! Her favourite spot to nap on a human, is on the shoulder or underneath the chin, were she may treat you to a bit of a grooming session.
Tigerlily is the most adventurous and playful sister, she loves climbing and exploring new corners. She will also initiate play fights with her siblings and settle down in a cuddle pile with them when they’re exhausted.
Pickle is the only boy and the cuddliest of the bunch. While he was the most vocal in the first few weeks, he ended up being the one to develop the fastest - first to eat kitten food, first to use the litter box and first to sleep on a human. He often loves to play fight and chase his siblings around.
1.5 years / male / indoors (FIV+)
Tommy is such a lovely, affectionate and gentle boy who loves to be tickled under his chin. He settled in with his fosterer very quickly and has become a bold character around the house. He loves to chat and be involved in everything, but needs his alone time to recharge (where he will most likely be found under the bed).
Tommy is very playful, he loves a game of the laser pen, or any small item he can flick around and chase. He even likes to play chase his fosterer! He instigates it by running off for no reason, then doubling back on his fosterer, skidding across the floors and around corners!
When he is finally worn out he spreads out across the lounge floor (which is hardwood - he has no interest in soft squishy comforts), often on his back; legs akimbo!
As Tommy is FIV+ he is not allowed outside, but he enjoys watching the world go by from the window. He would suit a family with older kids, who will spend a lot of time playing with him. Tommy will make an amazing companion to anyone full of energy and love.
Mama Deborah, kittens Edna & Edie
2 years - 2 months / females / indoors
Deborah (mama cat) is quiet but affectionate - she loves being stroked, but she's a bit worn out from nursing. We think she'll turn into a lap cat as soon as she gets her strength back and has some time away from the little ones! She's not a big meow-er, but will occasionally let out some little squeaks.
Deborah will be available to adopt once she has been spayed.
Edie and Edna are both extremely curious and playful! Edie is a little firecracker who is very food-motivated. Edna suffered with an eye infection when she arrived (this has healed well now), so is a bit more timid, but is always up to wrestle with her sister.
They're still warming up to being handled and are still a little worried about things moving around them, but are they're getting there. They don't really meow, but will chirp at you!
5 years / male / indoor
Orfeo is a total darling. He's super social and chatty, and loves to cuddle and get pets. He always wants to take part in whatever's going on at home: cleaning, cooking, watching TV, taking work meetings - count Orfeo in!
Orfeo is missing one of his back legs, but that doesn't stop him from playing, running and climbing just as any other cat. Strings and mice are a big hit, and can keep him entertained on his own for long periods of time. He also enjoys spending time spying on the next door neighbours, perched by a window or the balcony door.
He'll sometimes try and sneak up on the dinner table to grab a snack, but is quickly learning what the boundaries are.
He's so social and affectionate, so is looking for a home that has time to give him plenty of attention and playtime on a regular, daily basis. He previously lived with two other cats so might be suitable for homes with existing cats too.

Meet Busik He is a very playful little chap, who is always chirping and loves a good stroke!
His main motivation is food, and when he’s not munching on something yummy, he’s sound a sleep 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 is a very sweet kitty, and would make the perfect companion to anyone with lots of love to give!
1.5 years / female / in or outdoor
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 likes to sleep in a safe spot (e.g. behind the furniture) - from time to time she sleeps in the open, but that happens only if there isn’t a lot of movement around.
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.
She’s been learning to trust humans and has come such a long way. She has the potential to make more progress, so her family will need to be patient with her and have experience of owning cats before.
2 years / female / indoor
Cleo is a super affectionate girl - always purring and can't get enough pets and cuddles! She's 100% a lap cat, and will sit on your for a nap, or rest her head on you while you chill out in bed.
She'll let you know that she's hungry by lifting up her paw to ask for a meal! She loves attention and people, and is such a friendly kitty. Who could resist that little face?!
Raymond & Sherman
4 months / male / indoors
Raymond & Sherman - these two have a really tight bond - they love playing and napping together. Raymond is so inquisitive and loves to explore, while Sherman is a little more reserved - but he's a fierce snuggler!
Flower - assigned to adopter!
2 months / female / indoor
Flower is a very happy little kitty. She loves human company and her toys. Her favourite game is chasing her balls around the room. She is very cuddly and loves to sit on her fosterer or lay beside her for a nap.
She looks black but her brown fur shines through the light, she has a couple of white fur patches.
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.
