All of our cats deserve loving homes

 

We have all ages, colours and sizes of cats in our Tŷ-Nant sanctuary, and all of them deserve to have a safe, loving, forever home.

We have many beautiful and affectionate older cats, which are often overlooked in favour of kittens, but who are already toilet trained, calm and ready to be loving, and loved.

We also have our fair share of the difficult cats, who have been mistreated and are less trusting, but with time and patience, they will reward you with their love and affection.

Every cat up for adoption is health checked, and spayed / neutered.

If adopting a kitten you must sign an adoption contract to state that you will neuter at 4 months and provide proof. 

We want to be sure that our cats are going to loving, safe, homes, so we ask some questions about you and the environment you are offering our cats.

 

Our adoption fee is £60 for an adult cat that covers neuter, microchip, health check and vaccinations and all our kittens will be with us for 9 weeks going forward and will receive their health check and vaccination and will be £55. Our cats/kittens can only be reserved in person and on full payment.  Any deposits made on a kitten/cat are non refundable.

Kittens must be neutered at 4 months and proof provided as we are trying to reduce the number of unwanted cats in rescues.  Please note we only accept cash at the sanctuary, we do not have card facilities or accept cheques for adoptions. 

In 2018 and 2019 we were able to help almost 400 cats and kittens find their forever home. We regularly receive heartwarming updates from our lovely cats, and their new families.

 

We never put our cats to sleep unless they are in pain and cannot be treated. We have some cats that have been living in Tŷ-Nant for over ten years, and we are still hopeful of a forever home for them.

 

We love our FIV cats. Many other places will have an FIV cat put to sleep, as they can't live outdoors due to their low immune system. However, we have had a very successful adoption rate including Big Joe who was our Tŷ-Nant FIV Ambassador, who has now found his forever family.


Why not contact us to ask about adopting our lovely cats, or to ask about what it involves.

 
 
 
 

If you are unable to rehome a cat, but would still like to have a cat of your own, why not sponsor one of our Tŷ-Nant cats?

Or if you'd like to be more hands on, why not volunteer to help us with our cats?

SOME OF OUR CATS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION

Louis


This sweet little man has been with us a few months. He came in in terrible state with a flea allergy and his fur was thinning as a result. He wasn't neutered, hence his chunky cheeks. He is a nervous little cat but loves neck scratches and head strokes. He was a skinny-malinks but is a chunky monkey now and looks fantastic.
He has taken some time to come out of his shell and trust the volunteers, but in the last couple of weeks he has really found his feet. He is about 4 years old and looking for a quiet home with someone who will show him the love he deserves. He has lived with a dog, so a gentle dog would be fine

Billy & Missy - ADOPTED


This young little duo came to us in an awful condition.  They had fur missing from flea infestations that had never been treated. Both are now looking much better and on the road to getting full, glossy black coats.  Billys coat was a lot worst so he still has a fair amount of the fur on his rear end missing. They are the sweetest little pair and sleep, eat and play together all the time.  We couldnt seperate these two, so are looking to rehome them together.  They came in with another 2 cats but dont bother with the others. 

Savannah


Our gorgeous boy Savannah is a little overwhelmed.  We call him a she all the time becuase of his name, but he is actually a 14 year old male cat.  he has only ever had one human in his life.  An elderly gentleman who had to go in to a care home.  He hides away all the time and shows aggression as he feels threatened.  But once he gets to know you he is absolutely adorable.  He just needs someone to give him a chance to show you how lovely he can be. 

Milly May

 

This sweet little lady came to us with a sore paw and waht we thought was the flu.  She couldnt put any weight on her front paw but after scans and xrays we gave her a bit of time and she is now using it fully. She still has an upper respirotary issue, she sounds grizzly but it doesnt progress in to anything.  She is a loving cat who will climb on your lap the first chance she gets. 

Theo


Theo is a gorgeous, scrumptious little sweetie.  He is a VIP FIV cat.  We love our FIV boys here at Ty-Nant and treat them like kings. Theo is about 7 years old and was scared and hissy when he first came to us.  Now he is first in line for strokes and back scratches.  He loves his food and is a playful little man.  He needs an indoor only home to keep him safe from bugs and germs as his imune system is nt as strong as most cats. 

Nancy


Nancy is approx 1.5 years old, she was born on a farm and is completely blind.  We dont know how she manages to survive that long, we can only assume her colony were looking after her.   She has been in foster for 3 months and has finally decided she isnt feral anymore.  She calls for attention and strokes now and rolls on her back for belly rubs.  She will need a quiet home with someone with experience with blind cats.  No children or dogs, other cats are fine as long as they are gentle. 

Forest

 
This hunkachunkalove is Forest, he is a VIP FIV boy. We adore our FIV boys here as they are special little gents. They are always our favourtes as they are usually here the longest. Forest looks like grumpy old man, but thats just his bendy ears. He has a heart as big as his bum and loves strokes and treats. He wasnt always like that. He used to hide away terrified when he first came in. Now he actualy jumps down from the cat tree, to greet you.
We dont know if he has ever had a home. He came to us entire and he was neutered and tested soon after.
He, like the other FIV boys holds a special place in our hearts. Forest is approx 5 or 6 and needs an indoor home, or one with an outdoor enclosure as he may pick up germs if allowed to roam, which would be bad for his health.
He wouldnt like a noisy home so no children Im afraid. It wouldnt be fair on him or the children to have to stay quiet


Oscar - RESERVED

  

Oscar is a little cuddle bug, He came in with 3 other cats in very poor condition.  He was skin and bone, not neutered and full of fleas.  He is now neutered and we have rid him of those pesky fleas. He loves cuddles and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and stroked.  He is about 3 years old and would be a perfect companion. 



Elsa


Beautiful little Elsa's story is a sad one.  She lived with a lady for her 13 years and sadly her owner passed away.  She wasnt found for 3 weeks and in that time Elsa and her 2 other resident cats has no food.  She luckily survived and was brought to us with one of the other cats in the home. She has very unusal marks on her face which adds to her lovely personality.  She is looking for a quiet home with a warm lap and soft hand to care for her and will repay you with lots of love and happy purrs. .  


                            


Merlin

 

Looking for a very special forever home for our Merlin

 

Merlin has had long term issues with his stomach which has only been cured through feeding him a raw diet and holistic supplements. We tried a lot of other medication that didn’t have the effect that the raw diet did. Once a cat is on a raw diet they have to stick to raw only so having him at the sanctuary would be difficult as we couldn’t guarantee he didn’t eat other cats biscuits or food. He is currently in a foster home, he keeps himself to himself and is very submissive to other cats. 

He is absolutely lovely but needs a bit of love and attention to bring him out of his shell. 

If you are able to offer Merlin a raw fed home please get in touch.

Janos


Janos came from overseas. He is in long term foster at the moment.  He is a loving cat who adores attention.  He is completely blind having no eyes. He also suffers from Rhinitis so would need to be an only cat as there is a slight chance of passing it on.  He is a playful little fella with lots of love to give, so please dont let his rhinitis put you off. 

Fenella


Fenella is a wonderful cat.  She was found in a box in a garden, protecting 2 small kittens.  We thought she was themum as they were curled up with her but she was just protecting them.  We couldnt find her owners so we think she is one of many strays from the area she was found.  She will soon be neutered and will be looking for her forever home. She can be a little feisty on occasion, so a home with no children would be best.
