We do not show our very young kittens to the public. It disturbs the Mums, and we need to avoid anything that might make them anxious while they are caring for their gorgeous babies. Once the kittens are 10 weeks old, they are ready to have their first vaccine, and we can offer them for rehoming. All our kittens are wormed, treated for fleas, and will need their second vaccine, which we pay for providing our vet is used, at 13 weeks. They will also be microchipped at 13 weeks at the same time as their second vaccine.
The new owner is responsible for spayng or neutering the kitten. This is condition of rehoming.
Please note that we do not rehome kittens to families where there are children under five years.

***TO ADOPT A CAT OR KITTEN***

Welcome to Heatons Cats Rehoming Page. Once the cats and kittens in our care are ready for adoption, we place posts here with photographs and details on each cat.
Please see the posts below.
Adoption Procedure
If you see a cat or kitten you are interested in, please read our rehoming policy below. The next step is to contact us by email on purrs@heatonscats.org.uk or call us on 0161 975 0784. We would like to know:
– Your name, address and postcode
– Whether you have other pets
– If you have children, and their ages
– Have you owned a cat before
– Is someone around during part of the day
– If you rent your house, do you have your landlord’s permission to have a cat
= Also, please tell us briefly why you would like to adopt this particular cat or kitten

Once we have assessed the adoption applications, we will contact everyone within a couple of days and arrange a home check on the home we think is best suited to the cat or kitten. We aim to do home checks within around 4 days, and we can then discuss a firm date for you to take your cat or kitten home. All cats will be neutered,vaccinated, chipped, flead and wormed. Kittens cannot be neutered until they are around 20 weeks old, but all are fully vaccinated, flead , chipped and wormed.
Our rehoming policy in summary
– We do not rehome to houses or flats on or near a main road, or near a railway line or canal
– We do not rehome kittens where there are children under 5 years old, or where there are dogs
– Most homes easily pass our homechecks, but some do not for a variety of reasons. The homechecker’s decision is final, and cannot be appealed. We do not refuse an adoption without good reason, and have a duty of care to ensure our cats and kittens go to the best and safest homes available

    Tilly is our beautiful 4 month old tabby. Her mum was found just after giving birth outside but despite our best effort Tilly was the only kitten to survive. Her mum has been adopted by one of our volunteers and now its Tilly’s turn. Because Tilly has been an only kitten she is very spoilt […]

  • Milo

    Milo is 14 weeks old, he has so much energy and loves to run around as fast as he can go. But once he tires himself out he will let you snuggle him and he will purr away. We would advise Milo going to a house where he is not left alone during the day, […]

  • Phoebe, Eddie, Tiggs, Loomy

    These beautiful babies are now 4 months old and ready for their new home. We are asking for them to go in pairs, as their mum has the calicivirus, these 4 will have to be only cats in case they also carry the virus. These babies are little bundles of joy and will make such […]

  • April

    This our beautiful April, aged roughly 7 months. She has  Feline Coronavirus. This is most likely passed to them from her mum who also has it. She is perfectly healthy, and does not need medication for this and it shouldn’t stop her living a normal life. However we will not rehome her to anyone who hasn’t read […]
