Dedicated to the rescue, care & rehoming of stray, feral, abandoned, mistreated & unwanted cats & kittens

Sparkles (paired with Luna)

Sparkles was handed to the charity as a stray.

She is a very sweet girl who has developed a bond with her companion, Luna, whilst being under the care of the charity.

Sparkles is the quieter of the two cats, and her playful side tends to come out when she follows Luna’s example.  Once Sparkles gets used to you, she loves to have lots of strokes and will nuzzle under your chin and get as close as possible when you are down at her level.

As they can be quite shy, Sparkles and Luna would prefer either an adult only home, or a home with older children who can recognise when they need to be left to settle down.

Our Adoption Fee includes our charity “7 Step Health Check”, with comprehensive treatments & benefits worth over £180 on the highstreet:

Blood Testing FIV/FeLV

We screen for two incurable diseases that are fatal to cats – Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus and Feline Leukaemia.

Vet Check

Our vets give each animal a thorough physical examination and carry out all recommended treatments, irrespective of cost.


We vaccinate against four diseases: cat flu, feline panleucopenia, feline enteritis & feline leukaemia. All cats will have had both their primary and booster vaccinations prior to rehoming.

Treatments for Parasites

All animals are regularly treated against fleas and worms using the most effective products.


All animals are micro-chipped which will be transferred into your name on adoption.


All adult cats are neutered on entering the charity; if not yet 4 months, kittens will be neutered by that age by returning them to any Swanbridge or Battle Flatts practice.

Free Insurance

Receive 4 weeks’ FREE Petplan ‘Charity Cover’ insurance on the day of adoption, ensuring your new pet is covered immediately for illness or injury up to £4000. You also have the option to continue cover as a Petplan ‘Covered for Life’ Policy, even for cats aged over 10 years – a unique benefit of our Charity Cover.
