Cats needing a home

How to adopt a Cat from CAS

Contact the fosterer  - If you see a cat that you would like to adopt, you must contact the fosterer, between the hours of 9 am and 7 pm, whose telephone number appears with the cats details. Please DO NOT send emails.

Please note we generally do not home cats to flats as we feel they should have the opportunity to safely explore outdoors and in a garden, feeling free to come and go through a cat flap. However, we can make exceptions to this if there are cats or kittens that need an indoor home because it is in their best interest, and this will be noted in their descriptions. We always make any physical and behavioural assessments we need using fully qualified professionals to decide on the best home for our cats and kittens based on their individual needs, and for some, indoor homes may only be needed short term.  If you can offer an indoor home for a cat or kitten, please call us to discuss the animals we have available. 

Cats and dogs adopted from Croydon Animal Samaritans come with 5 Weeks Free pet insurance - whatever their age!


We can also accept online cash and food / equipment donations via our Facebook Page ***  

 Ollie and Kitty
Ollie and Kitty are brother sister, about 18 months old, who get on very well, often sleeping together but also happy to sleep in a place alone. They are very loving and friendly once they have had time to settle into a new home.  Ideally they will need an adult only home with one or two people in a relatively quiet home.  They are used to their foster mum who lives alone so a similar situation would be best. They have had a difficult start and would now love to get their forever home with their own personal cat servant.  We are looking for a home with a garden on a quiet road.  The pair have been neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
If you are that special person out there willing to give this lovely pair their forever home please call Jaki on 07511 897012.

Dear Percy is approximately 14 months old and for all his short life had been living as a stray! He has come on leaps and bounds with his fosterer, realising that to sit on a lap and be stroked and loved by a hooman is nothing to be frightened of but to enjoy! He is wary of people he doesn't know and will hide when visitors come. He will need someone with patience a quiet home a household with one or two adults that can give him the space that he needs at first and access to a garden. He has been neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.
Please call Jean on 020 8777 3065.

 Big Ginge
This handsome and large chap is looking for his forever home.  He has come on in leaps and bounds since arriving in our care due to his owner having to move.  Originally a stray he has lived with an older lady.  They loved each other and he often slept on her bed. Unfortunately she is unable to have him back due to ill health.  He will need an adult only home with one or two people.  He is very fond of his food and treats and can be bribed if necessary. He is very sweet with other cats and doesn't mind them at all, showing interest in them and sniffing noses, so we think he will be fine living with another cat. We believe he is around 8 years and has been neutered and microchipped and will be vaccinated. He would love a garden on a safe road. 
Please phone Anna on 07790 337119.

Trey & Trixie
Trey & Trixie are 8 month old kittens that came to us in February. They were found living outside in a colony in Croydon. Our volunteers rushed down as soon as we could and promptly trapped 4 kittens. We got them to safety and kept returning to the site until we were able to trap all of the family! Trey & Trixie had been born outside and had no human contact until they came to us and so were understandably nervous of us. As soon as space was available they were taken to an experienced foster home where they slowly turned into loving cats.  Trey is a very outgoing boy and loves to play and chase his sister. He has learned to love humans and will happily lay beside you for attention and is happy to try to trip you up at dinner time! Trixie is a very sweet girl who took a bit more time to come around than her brother. She loves to rub up against you to let you know she wants attention and she loves a good stroke! Both Trey & Trixie are such sweet cats and needs an understanding owner that will give them the time they need. Because Trey is so curious and outgoing they are looking for an Indoor home with either a large balcony, a catio or a home where the garden is completely enclosed. They are looking for a home with no young children. They are both neutered, fully vaccinated and micro-chipped. They get along really well with the other foster cats.

 Frederick & Twiglet
Frederick (black and white shorthaired male) & Twiglet (tortie and white shorthaired female) are siblings estimated to be around 2 years year old and were rescued as strays living in a garden as part of a colony. Initially very scared of people, they have made great progress with their fosterer, however, due to the large volume of cats and kittens we have had to rescue over the pandemic they now need to find a very special indoor home of their own where they can receive the amount of attention they need to finish their socialisation and develop their confidence.
Frederick & Twiglet are affectionate and friendly once they get to know you but do not enjoy being picked up at the moment and can sometimes be a little nervous. They are looking for a special home that can continue the behaviour plan outlined by their fosterer, and full support will be given after homing to help their new owners settle them in and bond. In their current foster home they are used to living with other cats and dogs.
We will only be considering indoor homes for Frederick and Twiglet or homes that have a fully enclosed catio or fully cat proofed garden or balcony.
If you think you can offer Frederick and Twiglet the special home they deserve please complete the online application from using the link below.

 Sage is a 4 year old girl that arrived into our care at the end of March after she was trapped from a rubbish pile in Croydon heavily pregnant. Although extremely nervous in intake, it was clear Sage was not a feral cat, and had likely been someone's pet at some point. Sadly, she had neither been microchipped or spayed and had subsequently given birth to at least 2 litters, and was pregnant with her third. Sage has been a fantastic mum to her 4 kittens and is now ready to find a forever home of her own. Although she looks grumpy in her photo, she has made fantastic progress in her foster home and has slowly blossomed into an incredibly sweet girl that enjoys being stroked and fussed. Sage had unfortunately suffered from a previous injury to the right side of her jaw that left her with 2 broken canines which have since been removed. She is otherwise in good health and has been spayed, microchipped and fully vaccinated. Sage is looking for an indoor home and would prefer to be the only cat of the household.

We are unsure of her age but approx. 2-3 years old but still very nervous. She will most likely suit a more mature person who can spend time with her and show her lots of love and affection.  Bean would love a safe garden so she can sit with you outside or indoors looking out at the garden.  Bean has had a hard life and takes time to trust people. She would suit a home with no children or other pets and have the sole attention from her new forever family. Bean can be unpredictable so someone with experience of having cats would be better.  She is up to date with her vaccinations and been spayed.
If you would like to offer Bean a home please call Barbara on 07387 100718

Please phone Anna on 07790 337119.

King Fredrick
Several months ago CAS was contacted by a concerned neighbour about a pregnant cat she was feeding on an enclosed estate in
Thornton Heath. The neighbour explained the estate had a number of stray cats, Fredrick being one of them that is believed his owners moved away and left him to fend for himself. We have since trapped the remaining cats there. Fredrick is an older Tom cat, estimated to be between 8-10 years old. This gentle giant is the grandpa of the family and unfortunately had to have a number of his teeth removed on intake. His mouth has since healed nicely, however he does have an old injury to his spine, and an old break to his paw which are likely the results of an untreated RTA. Although he does have arthritis in his paw, he is not currently on any pain relief and copes well. However this may change as he ages, and he may need regular pain medication if it starts to become uncomfortable. The future medical costs for his arthritis will be covered by CAS as it is a pre-existing condition. Fredrick was moved into a foster home and after some time has slowly come out of his shell and become a loving sweet cat that will gladly sit at his bowl waiting for his food! He also has a deep live of dreamies and if his desire is not met he likes to sulk under the bed!! He is a sweet cat but he was nervous when he first went to his fosterer and it has taken several months for him to come around. Because of this Fredrick is looking for a Indoor adult only home. It has taken awhile for him to get used to his fosterer so would be ideally looking for a home with just 1 or 2 people who will be patient with him. He has been around other cats.

This beautiful lady is Shelley our 8 year old tortoiseshell cat. 
She came from a very loving home but sadly had to be given in when her owner went into Hospital.
Shelley can initially be a shy girl but once she has got to know you is a very loving cat.  
She has never been around children or sudden loud noises so we are looking for a quiet, calm home where she is the only pet.
She loves being cuddled by her foster mum and will follow her around until she is sat down and then Shelley will be straight up onto her foster mum's lap.
As she is older we have had a full health check carried out and all is well.
She is fully vaccinated, microchipped and spayed. She would love to find her forever home with a garden as she does like the outdoors.
If you feel you could offer Shelley her new home please call  07545 963797.

This handsome chap is Teddy. He is extremely friendly and loving. We are told he gets on with dogs having previously lived with two, so a home with a cat friendly dog or a home on his own would equally suit him. He will need a garden on a safe road. Teddy is coming up to 6 years old and he has been neutered, micro-chipped and is vaccinated up-to-date.
Please phone Anna on 07790 337119.

 Pebbles is a Tortoiseshell cat approximately 2 years old.



She was found in a shed with kittens.  She is a very confident girl but like a lot of torties  can be quite fickle.  If she wants to be stroked she enjoys it but if not in the mood she

 will let you know and wont let you near.  

Pebbles loves the company of other cats and would very much like a companion. Her ideal home would be a quiet one with a garden with someone who would be happy to have her 

companionship and not be to worried if she doesn't always want to be fussed as she is independent.

For this reason we feel best if there were no small children around to antagonise her. 

If you would like to know more about Pebbles please call Jenny on 07552 706668.

Poppy approximately  2 years old

Poppy is a very sweet girl who has not had the best start in life which has made a little anxious but once she feels comfortable in her surroundings her affectionate, playful loving nature will come out. She was handed around quite a bit before she came into our care so she will need a calm loving and stable home.

She needs a quiet home with no other animals she especially becomes anxious when there are other cats around, also needs to be a home without young children.

Poppy will need access to a garden as she would love to discover the great outdoors. As Poppy enjoys company she would suit someone who is at home quite a bit,

as she does not like to be left for long periods. If you would like to adopt Poppy please call Jenny on 07552 706668

Brooke she is approximately  3/4 years old


Brooke came in as a stray with kittens after found wondering in a garden.  She was terrified when she came in which came out in aggression but after a couple of months she has calmed down considerably and is no longer aggressive but still a little nervous.  The way to Brookes heart is definitely through her stomach and will be rubbing round your legs purring and wanting a fuss. She needs a quiet home with a garden and her new owner will need to take it  slowly with her and let her gain in confidence in her own sweet time.

If you would like to know more about Brooke or adopt her please call Jenny on 07552 706668
