Adopt Sukey

Sukey - Domestic Short Hair - 11 years


Sukey is still waiting for her forever home. She has been in our care 8 months now. She is
11 years old, neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, deflead and wormed. She has really chilled a lot since her arrival, but does need a cat experienced owner that will allow her to be her independent self. Affection is on her terms – well she is a cat! She needs a garden to lay claim to and enjoys nothing more than a sunny spot. Sukey will play when the fancy takes her but only when she’s up for it! Sukey would like a home with no other pets or children. Do you have room in your home and heart for this pretty girl?

Update from fosterer 28 April 2021
When Sukey came into our care after her owner passed away, she was very traumatised. However, with love and patience, she is much calmer and accepting now, although she’s still independent and affectionate on her terms. She will allow strokes when she’s eating, but she can be worried by hands in front of her so cat experienced owner who can read her body language is needed. She will play a little, but loves snoozes and lying in sunny spots. She needs a calm home, no pets or children please.

Adopting a cat

When adopting a cat we try to make sure that everything goes smoothly so we have devised a step by step guide of what to expect

Step 1.
E-mail the homing officer on
or phone 01993 831 279 to inquire about the cat or kitten you’re interested in.

Step 2.
A home visit will be arranged. During the home visit, a representative from SCR will meet with you at your home to discuss the cat/kitten you’re interested in and the suitability of the cat to your home. Also, we discuss the basics of responsible cat ownership.

Step 3.
Following the home visit, the fosterer who has the cat or kitten that you are interested in will contact you to arrange a time to meet the cat/kitten.

Step 4.
Visit the cat! When you have met the cat/kitten and if you’re happy that this is the right cat for you and your family, you can adopt him/her right away! The fee for adoption is £65.00. Each cat and kitten in our care has had at least one veterinary check, flea treatment, and worming. Additionally, all cats over 5 months old are neutered before being re-homed. However, please note that this fee is a minimum donation. The true cost of feeding, caring for, veterinary treatment, spaying/neutering can be considerably more and we always welcome a further donation.

Step 5.
Take your kitty home! The fosterer will advise you when you pick up your cat/kitten of its routine, food, last date of flea and worm treatment, and any other pertinent information. They are always happy to speak to you regarding any concerns, advice, or even just to receive an update on how your new family member is getting on.

This may sound like a long process, but in reality the process can move quite quickly. Our main priority is to place the right cat or kitten in the right forever home.

Within 6 months of rehoming your cat/kitten a representative of SCR will contact you again to arrange a second visit, when details of neutering, vaccination and micro-chipping can be confirmed – and to meet a happy cat/kitten and a happy family.
