The Maidstone & Medway Club’s Welfare and Rescue is co-ordinated by Anne Gregory, the Club Secretary. She may be contacted on 01634 361645 or by email on annesmail@blueyonder.co.uk.

 

Our Welfare & Rescue exists to help cats, who, for whatever reason, need to find a new home. This may be because of a marriage break-up, someone moving to a new home unsuitable for cats, a change in family circumstances or, thankfully very rarely, because the cat is not cared for.

 

Anne may also be able to help those people who would like to offer a home to an older cat and when one is available that may be suitable for their circumstances, will make contact. Fortunately, not many cats in our area need re-homing, so you will need to be patient until the right one for you comes along! We would also put you in touch with the appropriate breed club who could help you with rehoming or by finding you a suitable older cat.

 

We are also here to help with any queries or problems you may have with your cat(s), pedigree or non-pedigree. Contact Anne or any member of the committee and we will do our best to solve the situation or answer your question.

 

How do we know whether you would be the right person for a rescued cat?

If you have indicated you are interested in providing a loving home for an older cat that is in need, we would arrange a home visit to see the environment offered. You would be required to sign an “adoption” form, indicating you will keep up with things like annual vaccinations and would be prepared to seek veterinary advice if the cat were sick etc. Some rescues would require an indoor life, others allowed out into the garden. We would try and match situations as far as possible. It would be traumatic for a cat that has had the run of a garden to be kept indoors all the time and vice versa. We do ask though that all cats are safely indoors at night and have access to a litter tray. We would also ask for a donation to the Maidstone & Medway Cat Club’s Welfare Fund.

 

What qualities do we look for in a potential new owner?

First and foremost a vast fund of patience and loving care to reassure a rescue that the new home is a safe and secure environment where he or she will receive attention and affection. Most cats are naturally a “people orientated” and will respond so well to your care, you will have an intelligent companion who is also a very beautiful cat.
