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.

These friendly, playful brothers, Thomas and Pepe, were born in May last year and are looking for a home together. They get on well, have lived with children and are neutered and microchipped. Although they've never been outside,4 they would love a safe garden to explore with their new family.

Adorable 11yr old Millie loves nothing more than to be stroked and made a fuss of - if you stop before she's ready, she'll gently tap you on the arm with her paw to get your attention and let you know she wants more! Her gorgeous, medium length black coat is soft and shiny as being brushed is one of her favourite things, along with curling up next to you for a snooze. She has an extremely gentle nature and loves company so will make an excellent companion for someone who is at home a lot of the time. Although friendly and affectionate, she can lack a little confidence so would prefer a quiet home without other pets or young children so she can adjust to her new surroundings in her own time. Sadly, Millie's previous owner can no longer care for her, but she has been much loved and well cared for, is in good health and is up-to-date with all her vaccinations and routine treatments. Millie will be rehomed under our 'Golden Oldie Scheme'.

Mia is a pretty, 3 year old tabby cat. She was nervous when she first arrived in her foster home but has gained in confidence and has become much more sociable with familiar people. She enjoys fuss and attention but doesn't like being picked up and cuddled. Mia needs a calm home without any other animals or children.

Puskin is a very beautiful, young grey cat, who we think is about 7/8 months old. She loves everyone but is very demanding wanting constant attention and gets very excited when you start stroking her, pushing her face against yours for more fuss! Pushkin really needs a home where there are plenty of people (possibly teenage children), around to keep her entertained! She would be best suited to a home without other animals so she can be the centre of attention.

Tigger is a striking striped tabby and his brother Dash is jet black with white markings. They are 10 months old and are seeking a quiet home together. Both young cats are timid and wary around people, although Tigger in particular has gained greatly in confidence. He will play, allow to be picked up and fussed. Dash is much more reserved, as yet he won't tolerate being picked up, but when he gets to know you he is happy to be stroked, closes his eyes with pleasure and rewards you with big purrs. An ideal home would be one where there were patient adults who were willing to give them both plenty of attention and company. Hopefully in time, Tigger and Dash would learn to trust adults and be comfortable in a new home.

Cally is a pretty, 3 year old tortoiseshell cat, who is spayed and microchipped. She is a very friendly girl who likes a lap to sit on. Cally is used to living with dogs and children but doesn't like other cats. She will be a lovely cat for a family.

Jackson and Luna are a sweet natured pair of cats, who get on well together. They are both neutered and microchipped. Seven year old Jackson is predominately white with black markings, he only has 3 legs, having lost one of his front legs in car accident, several years ago but he has adapted well. He is extremely loving but doesn't like being picked up. Luna is a 4 year old dark tortoiseshell, she is affectionate and enjoys company. They have come from a home with children and dogs.

Patch is a lovely, friendly, semi long haired black and white girl who is 6 years old. She has been a much loved cat and is sadly is looking a new home because her owner is no longer able to care for her. She needs a home without young children or other cats.

Cocoa is a gorgeous black/brown and white long haired 11yr old girl. She came to us after her owner recently passed away. She has a very loud purr and it doesn't take much for her purr to start filling the room! She is slightly timid and would suit a home with older / no children. That being said she is a lap cat who loves being fussed. Whilst she has lived with other cats before, she would suit a home where she is the only animal. Cocoa is spayed and microchipped. Cocoa will be re homed under our 'Golden Oldie Scheme'.

Myrtle is a beautifully marked, tabby and white cat. She is 6 years old, spayed, and microchipped. Myrtle is a talkative, friendly cat who enjoys attention on her terms. She doesn't like being picked up. Myrtle needs an adult only home without any 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.

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 nervous cat. He is a character cat and given a little more time will turn into a wonderful companion.

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'.

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.
