Munchkins Story: Born to stray mum and found with his sister Poppet. Rescue Remedies offered a Rescue place. Munchkins is now neutered, chipped, and undergoing vaccinated. Munchkins is in Gatwick Cattery whilst awaiting his new family.

If you are interested in rehoming one of our cats, please complete our Cat Homing Questionnaire. It is always the first step in our rehoming process. Upon application, you must be ready to take in your new cat within seven days. For more detailed information, please see our Homing Process.

Please support our work and help our long stay cats: Our minimum adoption donation is £175. This supports our continuing rescue work and is non-refundable. We exist solely due to the goodwill and donations of our supporters and volunteers. Our cats need supportive families who will offer them patience, time and tolerance whilst they settle in their new homes. Our Rescue offers all our cats back-up for life.

Munchkins has arrived with his litter sister Poppet. Its a strange one as Munchkins and poppet are of the same mother as Pippa and Pip who arrived last week but are of a older litter.

Munchkins is a bigger version of Pip but a litter less confident. Poppet is a little bigger than Pippa but a little less confident.

Munchkin and Poppet are booked in for vaccinations and neuter on Tuesday 7th May

Munchkins is currently stretched out of his comfort zone. Munchkins has been living in a house with his siblings and not handled very much. So at around 1 year old he has few skills. On the 28th April he was due to come but fled and was hiding in a corner and it was decided just to bring his younger brother and sister (Pip and Pippa) and let Munchkin and his sister Poppet relax and come later in the week. On Friday the 3rd May Munchkin and his sister were transported and had the weekend to settle with their siblings and Mylo a chilled ginger tom.

Yesterday the 7th we managed to get Munchkins into a carrier and our Vet neutered, chipped and vaccinated him. We had a problem because he looks so much like Pip so really hoped we were transporting the right boy!

In Rescue you work a lot from your gut. It came to me over and over again Munchkins needed role models to show him the rewards of trust and to soak in the vibe of confidence from a wise adult or 2! It was going to be difficult to work with Munchkins when the siblings around him have instincts to shrink or dart. I therefore decided to move Munchkins being an older male in with the 4 queens opposite Minnie, Daisy, Trixie and Clementine. As I said at the beginning this is an enormous stretch for Munchkins. His comfort zone is to sit huddled watching the activity with his siblings huddled close by, huddled with him but fearful to engage. Now he is sitting huddled in the corner watching mature skilled cats go about their day and business. Munchkins has become a curious factor to them. We are watching carefully over the next week if Munchkin can rise slowly to this opportunity.
