Indoor Cat

Do you want to adopt an indoor cat? THINK.

Indoor” is not a cat breed. Cats can’t be trained to be indoor only. Adopting an indoor-only cat means that windows/doors can not be left open. A cat is a cat and if you leave the window open the cat will go out. Simple. If you live on a high floor and leave your window open, the cat will jump out and die. The injuries of the cats falling from windows are too severe to treat and will often result in life long paralysis and often cats will need to be PTS (put to sleep = euthanasia). You will need netting or child locks in the windows so the cat can’t push windows wider than they are set and can’t escape.

If there is a balcony it must be fully cat-proofed (netting all the way) so the cat can’t jump out and injured himself or die. Very often people say that they won’t let the cat out onto the balcony. How will it be possible? How will you do that? Summer days are hot. You will open the balcony door. You will go out for a cigarette. You will have a glass of wine on your balcony. You will water some plants. You will have visitors. A cat needs one second to sneak in and you won’t even notice. Cats won’t ask you if they can sit on the balcony railing – they will just do it. And if they will get distracted by a bird they will fall. Their life if as precious as ours. Please make your balcony safe if you want to have an indoor cat.

All family members, flatmates and visitors must agree to keep doors and windows closed or secured. If you have a party please make sure your cat is safe in a spare room and your guests respect the rules no matter how much vino they had. You don’t want your cat to get missing or get injured or worse.

Please do not think that you will walk your indoor cat on a lead. Your cat will not like it and you will expose him to dangers. Cats are not to be walked on a lead. They are not dogs.

Please note that Stokey Cats’ cats will not be rehomed to boats. We appreciate there are many lovely and caring people living on the boats but the outdoor environment is not secure for a cat so please don’t get offended if your application won’t get accepted.

We rehome cats as indoor-only if they were indoor so far or have health issues, are older or their character/temperament is such that allows them to be happy indoors.

If you apply to adopt a cat from us please note that home checks and adoption fees apply. Please remember to leave your full name, address, and the contact number when you apply to adopt a cat otherwise your query won’t be answered. Thank you!

Ragga

Greetings Everyone,

My name is Ragga and I am a diva cat. I am 10 years old and I am looking for a new home where I can be the only cat. I think I should be the only cat in the world but not everything is possible in life. Please get in touch if you would like to meet me or talk to my human (send email to stokeycatsndogs@gmail.com). Please remember there will be other servants home checking and making sure that the new home is going to match my needs and requirements. It has to be perfect – just like me.

Tiger

Tiger is 7 years old (maybe a bit older) and has been always an indoor cat. He’s a lovely boy, very sweet, and gentle. Tiger came to us after his owner passed away and the family didn’t want to take him on. He was covered with fleas and half of his hair was missing. Tiger’s blood and urine test indicated underlying kidney issues which have been addressed now and Tiger is doing fine. He’s taking medication and eats the kidney support food. The vet is positive that the meds and special diet will slow down the process of kidney failure and he could have a good quality life for years to come. Let’s hope that he doesn’t have to wait too long for someone to adopt him. He really deserves to have a loving home he can his own. If you would like to adopt Tiger please get in touch via email stokeycatsndogs@gmail.com

Marvi

Cuddly and Friendly Marvi

Marvi is a very playful, cuddly, sweet boy looking for a home he can call his own. His ideal home would be with adults only. He needs to be the only cat in the house and would love to go out for a short walk so a secure outdoor space (back garden, fenced, away from main busy road) would suit him best.

A Cat in Paris – Fundraiser Screening at Rio Cinema

We are extremely pleased to announce that Rio Cinema in Dalston is hosting a special fundraiser to support Stokey Cats…and dogs. 

We are an independent volunteer rescue trying to help many local stray, abandoned, and unwanted cats. Although the neutering of stray cats is arranged under C4 scheme free of charge, all other veterinary treatments such as blood test, dental, x-ray, microchip, antibiotics, flea, worming treatment etc needs to be paid for.

All proceeds go to the rescue and the film has been given free by the lovely people at Thunderbird Releasing – really big thumbs up! You guys are amazing!

Buy a ticket, come and maybe meet a cat* or two and bring some cat or dog food as there will be a collection point at the cinema. Bring friends and family as the film is kid friendly.

A charming and exciting piece of classic cartoon animation. It’s a mystery that unfurls in the alleys and on the rooftops of Paris over the course of one adventurous evening that ends with a nail-biting and acrobatic finale. Dino is a cat that leads a double life.

By day, he’s young Zoe’s pet. By night, he works with Nico, a burglar with a big heart. One night, Zoe decides to follow Dino…

*One of our rescue cats, Lucy Bobbi the Kitten, will make a special appearance on the day. Lucy has been born with CH (Cerebellar Hypoplasia) which means she has trouble walking and at times can’t coordinate her moves and might even lose her balance. She was found hiding under the bushes, most probably abandoned by her mum being the weakest kitten. She got a second chance with us and became a very happy kitty.

Bob needs your help

Bob is going to the vets later today. He seems to have some pain / discomfort in his mouth. Maybe a toothache?

We are not a charity organization and we don’t get any support from nobody else apart of our followers. Stray cats need the vets too but they have nobody to pay their bills. Could you please help us to cover Bob’s vet bill? Our PayPal is stokeycatsndogs@gmail.com

Thank you in advance from Bob and us!
