Looking for a new home.

Rooster (pictured under his brother) came into during January 2018 with his brother Rocco and his mother Friesha. Rocco has since been adopted and his mum is up for adoption in our main cattery.

Because Rooster was never socialised as a kitten he has always been unsure of human touch and although he is still very shy he has made progress whilst in our care.

Now aged approx. 16-18 weeks old Rooster is shy and unsure but he will let you gently pet him in his bed and he will allow you to lift him - but only for a little while - before he seeks to get away.

We have no doubt that he will gain his confidence in a settled home with an experienced, patient and understanding owner.

Rooster gets on with other cats and would benefit from a home with another cat at home and he would be suitable to rehome with children 12+ years old.

To offer Rooster his forever home please visit the centre during opening hours 12-4pm Tuesday – Sunday or for enquires ring 028 812882.

Adoption Procedure - Cats

If you wish to adopt a cat from the Rainbow Rehoming Centre come on down to the centre and have a chat with our staff.  We want to make sure that we get the right cat for you …

Our cat adoption fee is £35 and this covers the following:-

  • Worming and de-fleaing
  • Neutering

Before you adopt a cat you must agree and sign the Terms and Conditions (this is a legal document).

When you take your new pet home you will be given an Adoption Pack.  This pack includes advice on looking after your new pet; we also have a Pet Advice Section on our website.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.

You will need a cat carrier so your cat can be brought home safely, please bring a cat carrier with you to the centre or you can rent a cat carrier from us for £15. 

All cats over 6 months old have been neutered before leaving the Rainbow Rescue & Rehoming Centre.

Please Note:

When the Rainbow Rehoming Centre takes in an animal, whether it is a cat, dog, kitten or puppy it is with the intention of finding this animal its forever home. Our commitment to this animal is not temporary though, as even after adoption a Rainbow animal remains a 'Rainbow animal' for life. So if at any time after adoption, whether it is one week, one year or ten years and you find that you cannot take care of your Rainbow pet you must contact us at the centre and your pet will be returned into our care. Under no circumstances should a Rainbow animal be passed on.

If you have any questions regarding the welfare of your pet please contact the Rainbow Centre and we will be glad to help.
