Direct homings

As a small branch, we can only take in a small number of cats and place them with our volunteer fosterers, and we always have a waiting list. However, our branch can assist people needing to rehome their cat via a 'Direct Homing' service, where CP will act as an intermediary for people needing to find a new home for their cat. This is sometimes referred to as a 'private adoption' as it is up to the current carer to decide whether the potential adopter will provide a good home and properly care for the cat. The current owner continues to look after the cat until an adoption takes place. We feature the cat on our website and Facebook page, and will provide as much information as we have available from the current owner.

Please note, we make no claim to have accurate knowledge of the cat, its health, vaccination status and whether it is neutered or micro-chipped, etc. If the adoption sadly does not work out for any reason, we at Chiltern Cats Protection are not obliged to take the cat into our care, but we would of course offer advice where possible.

Cats’ details will stay on our website until we hear/establish that the cat has been rehomed or other arrangements made. There are no adoption fees for this Direct Homing Scheme, but if either party wants to make a donation to the branch, this would be much appreciated. We suggest that the carer ensures they have the full name, address and contact details of the adopter so they can check whether all is going well post-adoption.


Lily and Terrence


Friends Lily and Terrence are looking for a new home together. Lily is a 4 year old British blue x burmilla female cat. Terrence is a 3 year old British spotted tabby grey male. Both are neutered and in good health. They are very loving and affectionate. They enjoy being outside as well as inside. They are used to living with a small dog and are used to a small child who visits.
