Well, let me start by saying…Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious! Thats a little hint as to how my foster mom gave me my name, something to do with this moustache of mine oh well, I like it, I answer to it so thats the main thing!
This is the story of how I came to be with TAH…Many months ago, I'd visit a house with a lady who was always in her garden with her black cat playing, exploring and having fun. I wasn't brave at coming forward. When she wasn't outside I'd sit with this cat and we’d just sunbathe and chill, we became best friends....he was pretty cool and laid back. Turns out she fostered long term for TAH.
Then something really sad happened, my friend had an accident and he went over the rainbow bridge, I was so sad but I stayed with him until his mommy found him A few days later she came back outside and saw that I was still in her garden hungry, wet and cold trying to find shelter (it was snowing, do you realise how cold it is being outside ALL day in the snow!!) so the hooman built a kennel, put some straw in and fed me everyday and sat with me. I'll be the first to admit I wasn't keen on the stroking at first, the constant attention was very very new to me however it started to feel really nice!
She took me to the vets where the kind people there removed a badly fractured tooth and something else, my doo-da’s so I'd be calmer and less stinky?!? Anyhoo it worked, I feel great! I adore the attention she gives me, long hard strokes from my head to the tip of my tail, tummy rubs (within reason), gentle paw massages and chin rubs/scratches OMG they are the BEST, seriously, amazeballs!!
So, mom said for my forever home I'd need someone patient as it takes a good few days for me to feel safe. Somewhere that's relatively quiet maybe, I'm gentle and a big fuss pot (moms nieces came to visit, 3 and 7- they were sweet and gave some gentle chin rubs but they were super loud and squealing which was scary), maybe someone who is there quite a bit especially at the start, I think I'd be ok with another cat but they’d need to be patient too, I do love to play when I feel safe but get spooked easily when played with but again, it takes time for me to feel safe!
ABIGAIL, female, 2 years old Spayed, microchipped, flea treated & wormed FREE 5 weeks insurance on adoption completion
Hi,hi hi! its me Abigail, ready and waiting for my furever home. I just love my fusses and tickly whisker kisses and that lap better be empty ready for me. I'm chilled and a really happy girl and I don't ask for much...except your undivided attention a comfy bed and a belly full of food LOL.
I would also quite like a sunny window ledge to catch some rays...when this silly weather sorts itself out, I mean its May already, by the time I have acclimatised to my new home and I am ready to go out I'll need wellies for the snow
Oh well you will have to keep me occupied with toys! This girl does NOT like wet!
I have not been around dogs and I would rather not share you with other animals anyway so it would just be you and me or a family with older kids, as long as teres plenty of time for me
ALICE, female, 4 years old Spayed, microchipped, flea treated & wormed FREE 5 weeks insurance on adoption completion
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY 'THE IMPORTANT BIT!
Hello lovely peoples, I'm Alice and I found myself homeless, unchipped and not spayed I got pregnant I looked desperately for somewhere safe to have my kittens and found a garden where I had 5 beautiful babies. I was a good mum and now they have all grown up and although I loved them with all my heart, its now me time and I would love a furever home of my own. I'm going to have an operation next week so I can't have more babies, which is good because its exhausting looking after 5 furbabies. My foster mum says that I am a chilled, laid back cat not sure what that means but I love a fuss, reallly enjoy my food even more LOL and as I can relax now... naps during the day. I have been so busy raising kittens I have not had a chance learn play so maybe you could teach me, I would that.
I would like to have a home where I can go out into a nice garden ...... IMPORTANT BIT as I am a white cat I need zinc free sunscreen on my ears and nose so I don't get burned as this can lead to skin cancer in many cases. You will need to check the UV levels before I go out as just because its not 100 degrees in the shade with full sun doesn't mean the UV levels arn't high!!!!
I am fine with other cats but not sure about dogs. Older children only please as I would like a peaceful life, I just want a family that will love me and give me have a home I can call my own.

Hi all you wonderful people, thank you for taking the time to read my story. I am not vain but I am beautiful, I'm proud of my markings and I keep my self really clean because I look like a mini leopard although I'm not fierce in any way. I am a loving girl who loves to play and climb onto anything LOL I'm a Princess in my tower looking down at my loyal subjects, waiting for attention because I just love to be pampered. Strokes are the best but I am a bit wary of being picked up. I was a bit scared when I first came to the rescue but i am learning warm laps are nice to curl up on...as is the fish tank as its warm there too. Yup I do love being toastie warm, if the suns out I'm there sun worshipping on the nearest chair or window ledge.
I'm a very chatty furbaby and will let you know if I need anything so I need someone around quite a bit or I get lonely and as I don't like to share my pawrents, I need to be the only furkid in the house and although I am very comfortable around teenagers, I don't like small hooomans as they are unpredictable and tooooo noisy HAHAHA! I gotta think of my nerves you know. My excersise regime as you know is climbing so I would love a cat tree and toys .... I Iove toys on sticks, mainly because I get more us time that way LOL
Hi guys, Grizabella here looking for a patient understanding home. I'm a shy girl who was part of a feral colony but I was trapped and I was pregnant so whilst I was bringing up my babies and then recovering from my spay I decided indoors was really good. All the nice food and treats and a warrrm comfy bed made me decide I didn't want to live outside again.
Whilst residing at Simms Towers with my foster mom Lou I got a pain in my hip and after x-rays the found damage to my bones, one side was really bad and I had to have the femoral head removed on the one side and now I'm ok. I had to move foster homes to recuperate so I could have the run of a room all to myself to strengthen my muscles again so now I'm at Carols Convalescence Home for poorly pussy cats.
I have come out of my shell so much since I have been here but I am still soooo shy. Once settled I will come for head rubs and I love it but I'm not quite brave enough yet to ask for more. That's where you come in. I am looking for a patient understanding home that will work with me and help me to shine. I'm not a bad girl in any way, I just need someone to help me build my confidence.
BOB, male, approx 5-6 years Neutered, microchipped, flea treated and wormed FIV Postive
Bob.....5-6 years old, neutered, chipped, de-flead and wormed to date. TESTED POSITIVE FOR FIV....please read his story.
Hi guys my name is Bob and I once had a home with a family, but something happened and I wasn't at home any more maybe my hormones got the better of me as I hadn't had me pompoms removed and I wandered off and got lost. I found myself living on the streets wandering from area to area where I got beat on for being the odd cat out and I was full of testosterone looking for the girls, I got some really bad wounds and I became very wary of other animals and people who kept shooing me away. I I got rescued and since I have been here I have been to the vets and the offending hormone bits removed, I had a full health check and I am really healthy except I am now I tested positive for FIV. This means I cannot live with another cat that is negative for the virus, now here's the problem, I do want to have access to the outside but it would have to be a catio to keep other cats safe...we don't want Boris from down the road saying I gave him a virus because I bit him on the head for coming in my garden, so catio it is. I mean I could be a house cat if it were big enough but people leave doors and windows open in the summer and I have lived outside for so long I think the call of the wild would get the better of me. I am extremely loving now (I remember how it used to be) and just want to be with you for cuddles and head rubs and I am verrry good at making sure you don't spend too much time on the computer and not fussing me because if I have to ask you more than once for attention I will sit on your keyboard or close the lid on your laptop.... yes that will sort things out LOL I have a really good appitite...to the point I have to watch my waistline, but please feel free to hide treats for me to find as I love sniffing them out. If you think you could offer me the home I deserve and need, please fill in the application to adopt form here................................. https://www.theanimalhouserescue.co.uk/adoption-details CP

WINDY, female, date of birth 10.03.2009 Spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea treated 5 weeks free insurance upon completion of adoption
Hi guys, its me Windy. I am in need of a special understanding furever home with a patient pawrent. I'm a bit of a work in progress you see. I got my name because when I came in I was very windy LOL I jumped at everything and most thing scared me to death but I'm a lot better now and I quite like hooooman interaction. I'm a quiet girl and I love to head bump for attention and if I can't see you I will come and find you but if you are busy I'll just settle down and catnap beside you.
Now for my dislikes, although I love my head and neck rubbed, I don't like my back stroked or being picked up and I will get grumpy, I'm not nasty with it but I will let you know that its not good to do that with a hiss, I just get scared with certain things. Once I settle in I love to play so toys are a must and a bit of rope will keep me occupied for ages.
I wouldn't want to live with young kids but teenagers would be fine and it would be nice for me to be the only furbaby so I don't have to vie for attention and quite frankly those canine kids scare the life out of me ...all that sniffy stuff and nudging LOL.
Hi guys, my name is Sparkles and I am looking for my furever home.
I came to the rescue as a hobo, a wanderer down on my luck. I used to visit a lovely lady who put food out for me and one day she noticed I was having trouble eating so she got in touch with The Animal House. I had to go to the vets as my mouth was really sore and they said I needed a dental because my teefs were making me ill. I'm thinking scale and polish and I'll be as good as new..........but NOOOOOOOO!!!!!
I had loads of teefs out, my days of bone crunching are over but on the plus side I have yummy food on tap
Whilst I was recovering, I lay there and remembered when this was the normal for me....once I was loved, this days seemed so far away. Now I'm back from those memories and this is REAL, I'm so happy even though I can be a little jumpy with loud noises and I do hate the hoover but I soon calm down and I'm back looking for head rubs and tickle chins. Only thing is I get all purry and silly I dribbles a bit cuz of me teefs gaps, that's OK isn't it? When you feed me I gets all excited and try and meow to say thank you but it comes out as little squeaks, my foster mum says I'm adorable.
I'm not a fan of being picked up and I didn't like being restrained to have me medicine when me teefs were done, but I do forgive quickly if more lengthy fusses are applied in the correct spots.
So now I'm fully recovered I'd like an adult only home...teenagers are acceptable as long as they know how to give appropriate attention to me LOL and I would love a cat flap to come and go .... after I'v settled in of course and the weathers better but I really do like this home life
