Adopt a Cat
We have many beautiful cats of all ages and backgrounds waiting for a home of their very own.
Can you find room for one in your home?

We are a small charity based in the Reading, Maidenhead and Henley on Thames areas. We aim to rehome our cats and kittens within approximately a 20 mile radius of Henley.

Kittens (Please read our article : Adopting Kittens)

We occasionally have kittens during the winter months, please ring for availability.

Adult cats (Please read our article : Tips on adopting an adult cat)
We have a lot of cats in our care at the moment which are not yet ready to be rehomed. Below are listed some of the cats which are now ready for rehoming. If you do not see what you are looking for please phone us as the situation is always changing as more cats are taken into care.

Figaro is a large, long haired black and white, 4 year old cat. He is a docile boy, who enjoys attention. He needs a new home where he can be the only cat in the household and without young children.

Gracie is a very pretty, 3 year old, white cat, who has reluctantly been handed into the charity for re-homing by her owner. She is a lovely friendly cat, who appreciates a lap to curl up on. Gracie is deaf so will need an indoor home with no other cats.

Daisy is an eight year old female who came to TVAW with her brother Alfie after being abandoned by her owners. Initially very timid, Daisy is a sweet, affectionate cat who loves nothing more than a lap to curl up on. Due to her timid nature, Daisy would benefit from a patient owner and a quiet home with no other cats.

Eight year old Alfie, Daisy's brother, is a confident, playful and affectionate cat whose favourite pastimes are chasing/licking his favourite toy and curling up on a warm lap. Alfie has lived with other cats before, but as he likes to be in charge he would be more suited to a home where he is the only cat. He has lived successfully with a dog previously, and may be able to do so again. He is a gentle giant so would be suited to a house with (older) children.

Sugar is a friendly black and white female cat who we think is around 6/7 years old. She was very nervous when she first arrived, having been a stray for several months before coming into our care. She has made good progress in her foster home and is developing into a lovely cat. Sugar will need a calm home with a patient owner who can give her the love and attention she deserves.

Paddy is a lovely 5 year old tabby and white boy. He is sweet natured, friendly and playful. He is a highly allergic cat, this causes him to have severe skin irritation. He will probably need to be on a low dose of steroids for the rest of his life, the cost of his treatment for this condition will be covered by the charity. Paddy will make a lovely family cat.

Harry is a semi-longhaired tabby and white male who is 13 years old. He is a very friendly, talkative cat who loves company. Originally a stray, in very bad condition when taken in, Harry was suffering from uncontrolled hyperthyroidism. He was quite literally a bag of bones with a coat so badly matted that some parts had to be shaved off. Once started on medication and a special diet Harry has doubled in weight and has blossomed into a very handsome boy. Harry will need to stay on his medication for the rest of his life but is now able to eat normal senior cat food. He will be rehomed under the Golden Oldie Scheme which means that TVAW will pay for his tablets and the blood tests he will need to monitor the effectiveness of the dosage in the future. The charity will help with the cost of any other treatment he may need for any age related conditions he may develop in the future.

Daisy is a black and white cat who came into our care having spent several months as a stray, we think she is between 6 and 8 years old. She appears to have lymphoma. The vets think with a daily dose of steroids she might go on for possibly another 6 months. She is currently quite enjoying life and we would like to see this continue for as long as she is not suffering. She is not able to clean herself very well and does have 'accidents'. On the plus side she is the most loving little cat who enjoys nothing more than settling on your knee to be made a fuss of. She needs an indoor home with someone who has plenty of time to look after her. TVAW will meet the ongoing veterinary costs.

Lion is a massively handsome middle aged tabby. He is looking for a very special home. Having lived rough for a number of years his manners are not the best! However, with time and patience, he is starting to come round. He likes being stroked and has learnt to purr. He appreciates the finer things in life - like an endless supply of Dreamies. He needs a home with no dogs, other cats or young children and with someone who understands how to deal with a very nervous cat. He is a character cat and given a little more time will turn into a wonderful companion.

Sasha and Milo are a lovely mother and son pair of cats looking for a new home together. Sasha is a petite, 9 year old black and white cat and Milo is a handsome, 8 year old, grey and white boy. Both cats are very sociable and affectionate.

Sindy is a beautiful dark tortie girl who is reluctantly being re-homed because her elderly owner is no longer able to care for her. She is a very sweet cat, but also very nervous of strangers. She will need a quiet home with no young children, cats or dogs. She will also need a patient, understanding owner who will give her time to come out of her shell. She may go into hiding for the first few days, but once she trusts you she is a wonderful, affectionate companion who loves attention. Sindy enjoys curling up on your lap, she is chatty and sociable around people she knows and trusts. She is house trained, can use a litter tray and cat flap. Sindy loves to go outside and one of her favourite pastimes is rolling around in her patch of Cat Mint. Sindy is about 11 years old, she is in good health with up to date vaccinations. She will be homed under our 'Golden Oldie Scheme'.

Whisky is a nine year old black and white boy. Four years ago he was hit by a car and underwent extensive surgery which successfully saved his back leg but sadly not his tail from amputation. He now has a fused hock and a metal implant in his leg but this doesn't badly affect his ability to get around. He was handed in to us as he was receiving unwelcome attention from local cats and had become aggressive towards his sister. For his safety he needs a rural home where there will be no other cats in the vicinity. He loves human company and is a purry lap cat who dribbles with pleasure!
In the unlikelihood that Whisky should develop any problems with his leg in the future, TVAW will cover the cost of any reasonable veterinary treatment relating to this condition.

Feral cats - we sometimes have feral cats which need homes at smallholdings, stables etc. They will undertake rodent control duties in return for having somewhere warm to sleep and two good meals a day.

We don't have any feral cats at the moment, please ring for availability. More on Feral Cats

Will the cats be spayed or neutered?

Yes, all are spayed or neutered before rehoming.

Do I have to make a donation if I offer a home to a cat?

Yes, we recommend a minimum donation of 30 per cat or kitten. We will accept cash or a cheque, this should be given to the fosterer when you collect your cat. We depend on fundraising to pay for food, heating, spaying/neutering and veterinary treatment, so are very grateful for all donations.
