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.

Marley is a majestic male tabby with beautiful markings. He is nearly 9 years old and has been well cared for by his previous owner who sadly died before Christmas. He has settled with us after a few days, now making himself quite at home and making his requirements clear. Marley likes to sleep. He also likes to talk, we are not sure what he is saying but it must be very intelligent. He is fairly timid, reacting to loud noises. He is a very friendly, affectionate chap, enjoying attention but equally happy to curl up in a cosy place. Marley will be best suited to a home with no young children, no dogs, maybe one other cat as he had a ' brother' in his last home. He is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated and comes with full service history.

Elmo and Oscar are a handsome pair of large ginger and white 11 year old brothers who get on very well together. They have been checked by a vet, are in good health and will be homed under our 'Golden Oldie Scheme'. Elmo prefers to spend his days inside lounging around and being fussed over. He loves to be stroked whilst curled up on your lap, purring loudly. Oscar enjoys being outside exploring but will always return for mealtimes and a cuddle. They are both initially nervous around new people but soon relax once they get to know you!! They aren't used to children so would probably be suited to a family with older children or an adult only home.

Aslan is a beautiful 2 year old Bengal cross cat, who is very friendly, affectionate and enjoys a cuddle. He is a timid boy so needs a home without young children or other animals.

Tinker is a magnificent 4 year old Seal Point Siamese cat (we have his pedigree papers). He is extremely sociable and just wants to be loved. He has recently undergone extensive dental work but is fully recovered and ready for a new home. He isn't used to children and doesn't like other cats.

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.

Meg is a beautiful 15 month old black cat, she is spayed and microchipped. She is a friendly but independent cat who would suit a home without young children or other animals.

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 an elderly black and white cat who has recently come into our care having spent several months wandering the streets as a stray. 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 comes with a free pair of leather gauntlets - you are going to need them! He is a magnificent middle aged tabby cat who has spent a number of years living rough. He is very slowly starting to respond to being regularly stroked and with time and patience should come round completely. He is not for the faint hearted or inexperienced but needs a great deal of love and understanding.

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.

Alfie and Daisy are black and white brother and sister cats, they are just over 8 years old. Both are microchipped and neutered/spayed. They are in need of a loving home with lots of patience having had a rough year, that has made them a little nervous of new people. Both are incredibly friendly cats once they get to know you. Alfie is a gentle giant, who loves attention. Daisy loves nothing more than to cuddle up next to you for a fuss, but is a little more nervous than her brother. They would suit a home where they are the only animals without any young children.

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!

Tiffany is a very sociable black and white girl who loves attention and a lap to sit on. She has just turned 6 years old. Tiffany has been an indoor cat but would welcome the opportunity to go outside in a secure, enclosed garden.

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

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.
