Please note that we prefer to rehome in and around the West Midlands as we like to do our own homechecks. If you are interested in Honey please make initial contact via our Adoption Enquiry form. Thank You

Honey is a sweet little Tortie girl approx 8yrs young.


We are not 100% sure of her background but we beleive she was left behind when an elderly owner died or went into care. She was constantly meowing at the door of the property when the new people moved in. 


We took Honey into our care and because she was very thin we had her bloods tested. It confirmed as suspected that she had an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and therefore will need medication to regulate this for the rest of her life.


Cats can live happily and comfortably with hyperthyroidism and its a very common complain in older cats, but it does need that little extra commitment from the new owner to make sure she has her daily medication and nornally 3 monthly blood tests. If she is rehomed locally to the branch we would support with these costs but if she is rehomed outside our area this is something her new owners would need to be prepared to do.


She has been in our care now for a couple of months and has blossomed into a loving and fussy girl. Despite being a slightly more mature cat she still enjoys a play and is young at heart. She just needs to be part of a family who will love her


Honey would need to be an only cat in either a quiet adult only household or with older secondary school children


Why I'm special

Honey has been in foster care now for over 200 days and has watched all our other cats go off to their new homes and start their new lives - she wonders why no one wants her and is now starting to become stressed and bored which is beginning to affect her mental and physical wellbeing....so we really need to find Honey a lovely quiet home as soon as possible - but she does need to go to a home with no other pets or small children. If you think you may have the perfect home for her then please read her write up fully before completing the link to the adoption contact form :-) Please take a look at her videos:

Honey is approx 8-9yrs old. We are not 100% sure of her background but we beleive she was left behind when an elderly owner died or went into care. She was constantly meowing at the door of the property when the new people moved in.
We took Honey into our care and because she was very thin we had her fully blood tested. It confirmed, as we suspected, that she had an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) and therefore will need medication to regulate this for the rest of her life.
Cats can live happily and comfortably with hyperthyroidism and its a very common complaint in older cats, Honey does not need to be given tablets as there is a new product which can be used which is in liquid form which is relatively palatable and Honey does eat it in her food :-). She will just require that little bit of extra commitment from her new owner to make sure that she has her daily medication (2 doses a day, approx 12hrs apart) and nornally 3-6 monthly blood tests. If she is rehomed locally to the branch we would support with these costs and would continue any treatment for her Thyroid at our vets at our cost. If she is rehomed outside our area this is something her new owners would need to be prepared to do.
When she first came into our care, after being initially quite frightened she blossomed into a loving and fussy girl. Despite being a slightly more mature cat she still enjoyed a little play and is young at heart. Having been confined for so long she is becoming understandably a little grumpy but we do feel that when she can live life again as a normal cat and come and go as she pleases and has more to stimulate her then she will become the lovely gentle little girl she was when she settled into care. She is currently on a sensitivity diet as the stress has been upsetting her tummy but again we feel confident when settled her tummy will also settle down. We will ensure we provide the sensitivity diet though for a number of weeks when she first moves to give her time to settle. She really deserves a lovely quiet home and family to love her and give her a life back. If you have the perfect home to offer then we'd love to hear from you! Please in the first instance complete our adoption enquiry form below and someone will be in contact with you :-)

Help feed animals in our care

It costs on average £8.52 to feed a single animal in our care for just one week!

We rehome thousands of animals every year. Whilst some are lucky enough to find a new home in just a few weeks, many more stay with us for months until we're able to find them their perfect family.

Will you help us cover the costs of feeding dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and more with a donation today?

*The funds collected will be used wherever the need is greatest.
