Please scroll to the bottom for new kitten information –
currently 32 kittens are available for adoption – this is why we say ‘Please neuter your cats’!!
Below is an up-to-date list of all the cats that we are currently caring for, either at the Centre or in foster homes around Coventry, and which are currently available for adoption. We are full to bursting at the moment with so many cats to look after, but we are happy to post cats that are still with their owners here as sadly we have no room to take them in at present – please contact us via our Facebook page if you wish to do this.
Please scroll down to the end of the page, as some of these cats have now been looking for a ’forever’ home for over 4 years.
All of our cats are neutered, vaccinated and chipped prior to homing, and all use their litter trays.
If you are interested in adopting a cat, please read the information on our 6-step adoption process: http://www.coventrycatgroup.org.uk/adoption/the-adoption-process , and feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss anything (or any cat) in more detail.
We have a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CoventryCatGroup, which is updated on an (almost) daily basis…. please have a look at it and click ‘like’ if you want to have regular updates and photos.
We are also looking for homes for feral cats and kittens - please scroll to the bottom of this page for further information.
Thank you for your support!
Reserved – Star (CCG1451) and Twinkle (CCG1452).
Our newest arrivals – two very pretty young tabby sisters! These little girls are just a few months old, and we have named them Star and Twinkle. They are a bonded sibling pair who get on well and keep each other company, and so we would like to home them together.
Star (tabby) and Twinkle (tortoiseshell tabby) were handed in by their owner who could no longer cope with these ‘unwanted’ Christmas presents! Please please please do not give animals as Christmas, Easter or Birthday gifts! Animals should be chosen and bought only by those who will be looking after them, not by well-meaning friends and relatives
If you are interested in homing this gorgeous tabby female pair, please click here to Email Homing Co-ordinator
Colin and Jake – recent arrivals and real softies – the cat cuddlers at the centre love them to bits!
Colin (black) is 7 years old and one of the friendliest cats you could wish to meet! Once he is having a cuddle you can’t put him down… because he will cling to you and refuse to move! If you are looking for a purry, affectionate, cuddly lapcat, who craves attention this may well be the cat for you
Jake (white / ginger tabby) is 8. Very gentle and friendly, a bit more timid than Colin but once he knows you he really enjoys being fussed! He has a big purr and is a lovely cat, gentle, loving and affectionate.
It would be nice to home these two together as they have been living with each other – handed in by their owner who moved house and couldn’t take them with her
At the centre
Em (CCG1373), 2 and a half years old, is a petite little lady, who still looks like a kitten! She came to us as a stray, and although she is fine in the company of other neutered cats, she is quite dominant with them so we think she would be better in a single-cat home, with no other animals.
Em’s behaviour is currently under assessment – she can be a bit unpredictable and needs to be placed with someone who is experienced in looking after cats, as she can occasionally display territorial behaviour. Generally speaking, she is fine unless there is a sudden noise, and then she gets frightened and temporarily aggressive, so a calm, quiet home would be best for her, definitely with no children, elderly people or other pets, and one where she will be able to go outdoors as well as being indoors.
She loves chasing the laser light around her pen when the cat cuddlers visit
At the Centre
The lovely Toby ! He weighs 5.1 kilos and not a gramme of fat on this boy. All muscle, built like a Staffie
A lovely cat, handsome and friendly. 18 months old (born January 2013). He is neutered, chipped and had his first vaccination. A big gentle giant!
With Judith in Coventry
The beautiful Willow, a tortoiseshell girl, under a year old, who had had (and lost) a litter of kittens while she was a stray. Now settled in with her fosterer, she is developing into a lovely, friendly young cat, who enjoys human company

Back to Top
Suki (CCG1410) is a long-haired female cat, around 4 years old, and a very friendly cat! She has pretty dark tortoiseshell markings, mostly brown with flecks of cream. If you are looking for a big fluffy bundle of fur, which purrs and headbutts you for attention and fuss, this is your girl! Suki is a gentle and affectionate cat who will need regular grooming, but in return will be a loyal and loving pet for the right owner. We think she is a lovely cat
With Judith in Coventry – soon to be at the Centre
Our latest arrivals! Jack (CCG1429) and Rosie (CCG1428), a very cute young brother and sister pair! Rosie has a mild skin condition which means she needs cotton sheets covering her bed or anything else she lies / sleeps on for extended periods of time (see the above photo), but otherwise they seem to be healthy and happy young cats! Jack and Rosie are really sweet natured, friendly, loving and in our opinion a bonded pair that should be homed together as they get on so well and are good company for each other :-) The Cat Cuddlers at the centre love them to bits and certainly enjoy playing with them and giving them the fuss that they love so much!
At the Centre
The beautiful Heidi, a young dark tortoiseshell girl (dark brown with flecks of other colours). Heidi is adorable and growing in confidence every day, she is a tiny girl, with a big purr and once she is comfortable in your company she chirps and headbutts and weaves against you to get some attention and fuss! She has a sweet nature, was initially very timid but is already becoming noticeably more confident around people since coming into our care, and just needs a loving ‘forever’ home now
With Judith in Coventry
Kitty (CCG1333) is approximately 3 years old and came in to us at the beginning of September. At the beginning of October she gave birth to a litter of five kittens that have all now been homed. Kitty is a friendly young cat who is chipped, vaccinated and neutered. She’s a lovely girl, quite happily living with three other cats, especially fond of the big polar bear Harvey, and they regularly rub noses. She’s amazingly shiny, so much so that you have to pick her up carefully or she’ll slip out of your arms! She loves to sit on your lap, or if you’re busy, just beside you. Her fosterer says that she has a really lovely nature and would be a wonderful companion for anyone.
With Brenda in Coventry.
Tasha (CCG 1389) is gorgeous little girl kitten – fluffy and cuddly! She is black with a white chest and cute little white socks, born November 2013 so just 8 months old. Wide-eyed and interested in everything that is going on around her…. loves human company and she certainly enjoys being fussed – look at that photo of her on her fosterer’s shoulder!!
She is cat who will want to go outdoors so we will be looking for a home away from main roads for her.
With Judith in Coventry
Humbug (female black & white, CCG1408) and Orchid (female white & tortoiseshell, CCG1409) – 5-month old kittens. These gorgeous sibling kittens are now 5-months old and ready for rehoming – both neutered/spayed, vaccinated and chipped! Humbug is the bolder one, inquisitive and very gentle…. She loves food and is now confident enough to take food from your hand. Orchid is a gentle independant girl, quite happy to while the day away watching the word go by! They are still quite timid, but with patience we think they will develop into lovely young cats as they have such nice personalities already
Gabby (CCG 1330) Gabby is a young, playful and affectionate female cat (white and tortoiseshell), approximately 2 years old. She came to us as a stray in August. She does a great pole dance at the centre and loves to be cuddled… once she gets to know you, she will jump up onto your lap for a bit of fuss – she has a lovely temperament! Gabby has teamed up with Rusty (below) at the centre so is social with other cats.
At the Centre
Rusty (CCG 1276) came in to the group as a result of the last animal action day at the end of May. She had given birth to 6 kittens in a disused garage and was being a wonderful caring young mum looking after them all! The kittens have now all been adopted and Rusty is now waiting for her ‘forever home’. She has teamed up with Gabby, and they enjoy playing together. Rusty can sometimes be a bit temperamental and so is probably not suited to a home with very young children. A friendly cat who is happy to be picked up and cuddled
Currently at the Coventry Centre.
Bella and Saffy (CCG1331 and 1332) are 9-year-old twin sisters. They came to us 8 years ago after being found abandoned as kittens with their mum in a supermarket car park. They were adopted but then came back to the centre last August and are currently living with one of our fosterers. They are two gentle and affectionate cats, who would be suited to a quiet, calm home. We would like to rehome Bella and Sapphire together, as a bonded sibling pair. All of our cats are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered prior to adoption. Saffy Bella
Currently with Sue in Coventry.
Katia (CCG1426) is a recent arrival at the Centre. She is a lovely young girl, approximately 2-3 years old, affectionate and friendly, with similar markings to Lady, below We love her little pink nose! Katia is a big purry softy who will grab you with her paw to bring you closer to her for a cuddle…. very sweet, a lovely young cat!
As with all of our cats, Katia is vaccinated, chipped and neutered and we think she would make a lovely friendly feline addition to someone’s home.
At the Centre
Puska (CCG1427) is a sweet-natured and friendly young girl, approximately 2-3 years old, and brought to the centre because her new owners were allergic to her
Puska will jump on your back if you bend down, leaving you with a large furry parrot on your shoulder, gentle and social. She loves being fussed and will headbut you for more and more attention, so we are looking for a home where her new owners have time to spend with her as she enjoys human company :-)

5 good reasons to adopt a black cat!
1. You can always find them in the snow
2. Holding a black cat is very slimming
3. Black cats will match any décor
4. Black cats have historically been considered to be lucky
5. Black cats are like onyx, a beautiful gem
Keep reading…. there are more cats…… we haven’t finished yet!!
Cocoa (CCG 1359) -(6 yrs) – black with a white chest. She is a very vocal cat and will ‘talk’ to you, telling you exactly what she wants! She loves a firm fuss.
This lovely, friendly cat was taken in because her elderly owner could no longer care for her, so she would love to have the chance of a permanent loving home. She is well behaved and friendly, and would make purrrrr-fect pets for someone who has a nice calm house!
At the Centre
Molly (CCG1375) is a lovely, friendly black and white cat who came to us in November 2013 as a stray. She is interested in everything and enjoys watching everything that is going on! Molly is a playful cat who really enjoys chasing around after the feather rod. When she is not playing, she loves sitting on her tall scratch post, especially as from the top she has a great view of the garden and all the birds
As with all of our cats, Molly is vaccinated, chipped and neutered and would make a lovely affectionate feline addition to someone’s home.
At Judiths in Coventry
Back to Top Friday (CCG1217) has been with us since 2012 and we estimate his age to be around 3 years. He was a stray by TGI’s in Binley and had been there for 3 weeks. We believe that he was involved in a road traffic accident and as a result he will occasionally pass a bit of poop while he is laying asleep (there are no problems with his bladder though). We manage his health with a little lactulose and liquid paraffin in his food which he wolfs down. Friday is a lovely biggish grey and white cat, very friendly and fine with other cats. He will readily follow you around rubbing against your legs for a bit of fuss! He just needs the right indoor home with owners who would be prepared for the odd bit of fallout when he sleeps.
With Judith in Coventry.
Back to Top Candy (CCG1223) came into the care of the group in the summer of 2012 as a pregnant stray. She is a quiet girl who enjoys human company. She likes to be stroked and will happily sit next to her current foster family and sleep on their bed. Time and patience will be needed to settle her into a new home but she’s a real softy when her trust has been earned. She has been used to living with other cats.
Currently with Sharon in Coventry.
Millie (1015) is a pretty petite black shorthaired cat with white flecks. She is approximately 3 – 4 years old, and came to us in May 2011, so she has now been with us for some time, waiting for her ‘forever home’! Millie is spayed, chipped and fully vaccinated. She had 3 kittens who have all been happily rehomed. If she could describe herself, Millie might say something along the lines of “I am a sweet little girl still waiting for my forever home. I love to be outside in the garden, sunning myself on the wheelie bin or nipping into next door to see what they are doing. I enjoy the outdoors and would love to have a safe garden to explore through a cat flap. I don’t mind quiet dogs, and tolerate other cats but would be quite happy living on my own where I can sleep on the bed beside you, or snuggle up on the sofa next to you while you watch TV!”
At the Centre.
Back to Top Polly (CCG899) has been patiently waiting for a new loving home since May 2010! She is happiest in the company of another young cat(s). She is looking for a quiet home and will need access to a safe garden when she has settled in. She has made great strides in gaining confidence with people, but is still wary of being touched, perhaps due to being mis-treated in the past. Polly would adjust to living with a quiet, cat-friendly dog.
Polly is currently with Nicky in Coventry.
Back to Top
Daisy (CCG641) is approximately 10 years old. She was handed in by her owners in Jan 2009 because she had a wound on her back (which has since healed completely). Daisy loves being with humans and fussed though she is nervous and therefore prefers to be fussed on a higher level – such as the top of a wardrobe! Because of her timid nature she would be best suited to a quiet household with no other pets, and a patient owner who understands how to reassure timid cats. Daisy is a housecat who likes to stay indoors.
Daisy is currently living with Hannah in Coventry.

Sheila (CCG 1406) is a pretty tabby and white girl who has already had one litter of kittens, Humbug & Orchid (now 6 months old) who are a lovely sibling pair now ready for adoption and listed elsewhere on this page. She has just had another litter - details below
A note from Sheila’s fosterer: Sheila is gorgeous and extremely friendly. Not really a lap cat but will sit/lay/sleep on the sofa. Doesn’t mind being picked up and having a cuddle and quite likes being groomed. She appears happy to see us when we come in/get up in the morning etc and comes to greet us, winding in and out of our legs. She is extremely well behaved! Doesn’t jump up onto the tables or work tops and rarely pesters for our dinner. Generally a laid back friendly cat! When she can’t find the kittens (they like to sleep in a box) she meows for them – she is an excellent mum and plays occasionally with them, usually when they pounce on her or when they try to get her tail! Sheila enjoys eating cooked fish and chicken.
The kittens are all very playful and friendly! They interact well with us – both coming to us and us going to them. All very good climbers and play with each other too. All using the litter tray, they all enjoy both wet and dry food and drink water.
Two are reserved subject to home visit

CCG1422 Kitten 3 white/black

Softie (CCG 1411) is a lovely, gentle grey tabby and white girl who was left behind when her owners moved out a year ago and didn’t take her with them! She has been a stray since then, living in garden sheds. Softie is well named, a stunningly fussy girl who is gentle, playful and friendly - a lovely young cat who is now ready for adoption! She is spayed, chipped and has had her 1st vaccinations. Probably best suited as an only cat, although used to living with a dog.
Her 2 pretty little kittens Neo & Flake are brown tabby and white, born 7.4.14. Neo loves a cuddle and both are used to living with a dog.
They will soon be vaccinated, chipped and spayed, ready for adoption.
We would love to find these cats and kittens a loving ‘forever home’ with responsible owners who will care for them properly. Softie is a gentle, affectionate cat who is doing a great job of looking after her little ones at the moment; we are so proud of her :-)

Homes wanted for Feral Cats
Though the group was originally formed to help feral cats, we do not do much of this any more due to lack of time. However feral cats do need help to keep numbers down and keep them healthy.
Feral cats are rewarding. If you have stables, farm, small holding, safe factory or even a large garden they will take care of any rodent problem in return for somewhere dry and safe to sleep and regular feeding. Cats hunt best when they are fed and healthy. Feral cats are wonderful to watch interact with each other and eventually, if allowed, find out and enjoy home comforts. Once you have gained the trust of a feral cat, they are a friend for life.
If you are able to offer a home to feral cats (eg. in a smallholding, farm or stables) please contact us, as we currently have a number of feral cats in our care who need a home .
