Please consider the following before applying to adopt:
We will communicate via email, so make sure to check your SPAM or 'Promotions' folder in your email for any communication from us. You will receive an email to confirm we have received your application once submitted.
We are an INDOOR first cat rescue and we DON'T rehome single kittens.
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 have permission in writing on your rental or lease to have pets before applying.
Only submit one application, if you wish to update it, message us via Instagram, Facebook or email 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 are an indoor first rescue. Cats should be kept indoors at all times (unless you have a catio or cat proofed garden) join this group for ideas, please read our FAQs for more information. We will require all cats to be cat proofed. This applies to kittens as well.
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 for a 'difficult to adopt' kitty.
Terms apply to all adoption applications.
Please keep in mind that we will not be able to provide vaccinations at this time.
We have received hundreds of applications so we won't be able to get back to everyone individually, please read our FAQs to familiarise yourself with our process.
Kitties for adoption
Please note that most ages are approximations as we don't always have the kitty's medical 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.
8 months / male / indoor
Tracey is a very friendly and curious little cat. He is also energetic, and enjoys spending time with people in the house. He can be very playful and loves attention and pets. However, he also needs to have some spaces to hide whenever he wants to be left alone or have some quiet time.
Despite being very friendly with the familiar people in the house, he is still very scared of new people coming in, even if he’s seen them a couple of times before. He takes a while to become accustomed to a new place, or new people. And he is very anxious generally when it comes to sounds or sudden movement, loud noises or even new toys (which take a while for him to familiarise to).
Tracey is available as a foster to adopt, where he will be a foster cat so we can monitor that he settles in well before the adopter and LICK are happy to move forward with the adoption.
2 years / male / indoor
Julian is very affectionate and loves humans, which makes him a great companion. Although he can be shy at first, he warms up quickly.
He is very playful and funny, but continues to be gentle even when playing. He is careful to never bite or scratch. He also has very cute and fluffy ears.
As a stray cat, he had lots of cat friends, so he may do well in a home with other cats. He is also very tolerant, so he would not mind a home with children or other pets.
4.5 years / male / in/outdoors
Monty has come a long way since he first arrived with his fosterers. He was very shy for the first few weeks, but is getting more confident every day. With a lot of patience and letting him do things at his own pace, he has learnt to his fosterer, and now loves being stroked on his own terms.
He loves to play with his toys and look out of the window in to the garden, so he would suit a home with a catio or equivalent. He also likes to rough up carpets which he's playing...!
He is still quite easily spooked so we think he'd do best in a quiet home with 1 or 2 people. He needs to be the only cat in his home.
3 years / male / indoors
Marlon is a very quiet, gentle cat who loves head rubs and forehead massages. He likes to be next to you, especially at night - which means he will need a spot on the bed!
Though very loving, he is also quite independent and doesn't need company all day. He's very well behaved and sensible, but does sometimes get spooked by sudden movements or noises, so a calm home is required.
He came to us with a wound on his paw which is now healed, but his new owners might want to keep an eye on it at first where things like scratching posts are concerned.
4 years / male / indoors (FIV+)
Charlie was quite a scared kitty when he arrived at his foster home, but has since warmed up a lot and now comes over for strokes when he's called! He's not a lap cat, but will occasionally come and sit next to his fosterers. He won't be brushed for long periods, though he does enjoy a few strokes with the brush. He does not like to be held, but tolerates being picked up.
He comes to greet his foster family when they come home, and it always curious to see what's going on if someone knocks at the door. He's proved himself to be a confident boy, recently surprised his foster parents when they had a friend over by going straight up to him and demanding attention!
Food is his love language, and his owners will need to make sure that they don't give in to his vocal demands! He knows when it's dinner time, and (of course) he LOVES Dreamies.
4 years / male / indoors
Ollie has really come out of his shell while in foster care, and while definitely still a nervous cat (he hides whenever strangers are around) he now enjoys strokes and napping nearby. He sometimes gets very excited and will bash into your legs when he's trying to weave in and out of them.
He would like a family who are around the house often as he's quite needy and LOVES attention from his 3 foster housemates and will spend all his time with them.
mama snowy & fluffy
2 years & 10 weeks / female & male / indoor
Mama Snowy & Fluffy - female & male / 2 years & 10 weeks / indoor
Mamma Snowy had 3 kittens (including Fluffy) and took in 2 more, and now she's ready to retire from mum-life and find her forever home! Snowy is the sweetest cat, and is looking for a home with Fluffy, who is a great hunter! He wants to check out everything that moves and loves to run around, but also enjoys a cuddle at the end of the day.
4 years / female / indoor
Minnie is a sweet kitty who is still a little shy - she'd like a home where someone is home most of the day and can work to increase her confidence further. Although she is not a lap cat, she does like some attention and will join you in bed at night and half-sit on your lap on the sofa - or even disrupt your zoom calls! She needs an adult-only home that can respect her space and boundaries, as she will make it known if she’s uncomfortable with a gentle bite. You can also expect to be followed around throughout the day as she loves company.
She absolutely loves food, however she is on a special gastro diet currently to help with some stomach issues. Despite this, she doesn’t seem to have any issues with eating it! She does enjoy occasional play and is very fond of her mouse toy.
Truffle and Miso
9 weeks / female / indoor
Truffle and Miso are two very sweet natured kittens, they are the two biggest of the litter and love to play together and nap on the laps of people they trust. They come running over to you once familiar with you and have quickly warmed up to visitors. Their mum has the loveliest personality and they seem to have inherited this. They will need a home with plenty of space, something soft and fluffy to sleep on and lots of toys.
9 weeks / female / indoor
Pesto is a very special little lady who had tons of personality and was the first kitten of the litter to start purring and giving head bumps. She had to be bottle fed as she was struggling to gain weight but has now almost caught up with her siblings. She loves people and would love a home where people are around to spend time with her and invest in playing with her.
Pesto is looking for a home with another young cat 😻
Laila & Luna
2 months / females / indoor-outdoor
Laila and Luna are inseparable, they love play fighting and grooming each other. They are both very affectionate, playful and like grooming each other.
They snuggle up with their foster mum in the creases of blankets and love playing with toys. They find random things around the house to play with too, from hairbands to pens.
They would be best suited to a home with cat proofed-outdoor space. They have had many visitors growing up so are very comfortable around people.
15 years / male / indoor
Henry is such a friendly and gentle soul, he will will be an amazing addition to a loving home - something he truly deserves. Henry was found poorly in the streets and was brought to the vet but no one claimed him, he was very skinny but had a very healthy appetite.
He loves a good head scratch and cuddle. He’ll take a week or two to settle in, but once he’s comfortable he becomes a proper lap cat! He loves a nice long kip and you can usually find him curled up having a snooze somewhere cosy. He is very vocal when he wants attention (or food), which has caused some issues at night, and has been taught a few bad habits by his previous owners (he’s got no qualms about grabbing food right off your plate!), but he is so friendly and lovely that you can’t help but forgive him immediately. As he is a very social cat, he’d be happiest with someone who works from home as he can get lonely when left alone all day.
Henry had thyroid issues, he had a thyroidectomy and he has now stabilised and ready to be adopted! Please keep in mind that he might need a more expensive medical insurance.
Mochi, Tabasco & Evie
3 months / 2 females, 1 male / indoor
Two of these cuties will need to be homed in a pair, with the remaining one going to a home with another young cat.
Mochi loves playing with her ball track and will happily smack it round and round for as long as she can. She also loves jumping on and off the sofa and climbing up anything she can find a grip on. Mochi will need a house with lots of love and playing and is best suited to be adopted with one of her siblings.
Tabasco is an inquisitive and sweet kitty. He loves staring at his foster family, and will sit and receive pets happily as he’s drifting off to sleep.His favorite entertainment is his sister Mochi, but he also loves playing with balls and scratching on his scratching post.
Evie is an animated puffball full of personality! She isn’t too affectionate yet because she’s too full of energy at the moment to consider being held! She loves snuggling up on a soft surface near a radiator once she’s worn herself out and she’ll happily accept some pets then.
2 years / female / indoor
Cassandra is a very affectionate cat who LOVES love - she adores cuddles and makes grumpy noises when she wants attention. She likes bathing in the sun, resting on blankets, in cardboard boxes, and will always be nearby her humans.
She has a habit of greeting guests by the door and likes to sit by the window and watch people go by (she seems less interested in the birds).
One of her favourite things is being groomed, and her foster carers like to do this daily for special bonding time with her, and it's adorable watching her try to hug the brush!
3 years / male / in & outdoor
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 will also need help on learning how to use litter while he is kept indoors when he first arrives to his home.
He is a very sweet kitty, and would make the perfect companion to anyone with lots of love to give! Busik is available as a foster to adopt to ensure the fosterer and the kitty are settle in well.
Mavis (AKA Millie)
ASSIGNED TO ADOPTER
7 years / female / indoor
Millie is a complete purr machine, who lives for cuddles and love. She is one of the cuddliest cats her foster mum has known! Her favourite activities are to snuggle with her foster mum at night or to sleep in a sunny spot by the window on her fluffy bed. She enjoys short spurts of play time, but spends most of her time either looking out of the window or snoozing.
Millie likes to climb and explore the house, and would enjoy a climbing frame close to a window, as well as plenty of scratching posts. She loves to get brushed and will purr loudly to show her appreciation, and also enjoys watching cat TV.
She can get mildly startled by sudden movements and will keep her distance with new people, but will come into the same room and sit close-by. She is happy to be picked up by those she trusts!
She is not a fussy eater, but does take quite a while to finish her meals, so she would benefit from a regular food schedule.
Being the love bug that she is, she prefers to have company at all times but will be okay for short durations on her own too. An adopter who works primarily from home would be ideal for Millie. We also think she would do well with another friendly cat.
She has a dental booked in for the 24th May which will be covered by LICK, and she is healing from a bout of cat acne under her chin - he new owners will need to keep an eye on this and take steps to keep it at bay.
Leo & Larry
ASSIGNED TO ADOPTER
2 years / male / indoor (FIV+)
Larry and Leo are typical brothers. They’re equally happy curled up together having a nap as they are having a wrestling match!
Larry is a big but incredibly gentle boy. He’s food obsessed, and has been caught stealing from the scrap bin. He loves nothing more than to curl up on your lap or to take up half the bed at night time.
Leo is much shyer than Larry, but has grown to enjoy being brushed and stroked. He is missing a foot but is the more playful and energetic of the two. He’s more dependent on Larry but with time he has come out of his shell.
Leo will require soft surfaces for play so he doesn’t injure himself.
Larry is FIV positive, so they will both have to be kept indoors.
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.
