We realise that many of you are looking for a cat to bring into your home and family, and that it can be frustrating when cats seem to come in and then be homed very quickly.  We do have adult cats coming into foster over the few days and they will all need homes so we recommend you keep a close check on our Facebook page which can be viewed on our 'Cats' page, here.
