Full Advert Details


Gorgeous Gracie is her name, she is very very loving and chatty. She is fat and needs to be kept on a diet!

She has had her checks with vet and consults.

She has a sensitive tummy, so we have done lots of work on that. She is on a sensitive diet and has a daily tablet in her wet food (chicken and rice Applaws tinned). She had runs when she came to us and a sore bottom. We re having her clipped on Tuesday, to make life easier for her. We expect her to be ready to rehome by mid August 2017 onwards.

Adoption fee will be £275. Fine with other cats here as long as non dominant, not too many other cats though.

We were told she is 3 ish years old, but we and the vet think it is more like 5 ish, blue cream persian girl, or maybe dilute tortie? no children under 8, no dogs unless not loud or boisterous, quiet home needed - other easy going gentle cat/s may be ok, little girl just wants peace and love.

Any garden access must be supervised.

Her previous owners were too old to groom her and she then got rehomed and hated the children and noise. Indoor only. All vet work done pre rehome as always with Strawberry rescue.

To Apply:

Before applying for a Strawberry cat please read the following.

1. Unless otherwise stated, our cats are strictly indoor only. This means that windows/doors cannot be left open in any room to which the cat has access. A cat cannot be trained to be indoor only - it must be supervised. All members of the house must be in agreement, and understand about keeping doors and windows closed. We are happy to re-home to a flat but, likewise, this means windows closed and no balcony access, unless the balcony is totally cat-proofed, so that they cannot drop to their death.

2. Unless otherwise stated, we do not re-home to children under 6 years old. If there is nothing stated to contrary, assume the cat cannot go to a child under six. For other cats, please also bear in mind that some cats may also be found to be unsuitable, even for children over 6.

3. It is a requirement of our adoption policy that lifetime insurance is obtained and maintained

for every cat adopted. We provide 5 weeks free insurance with every adoption, but the original policy may not suit you and as we are not financial advisors you should seek out the best and appropriate insurance to suit your own needs.

4. Most cats are in Greater London, Essex or Kent, with some fostered further afield. We have volunteers who can transport cats nearer or to you, but fuel costs are payable by yourselves.

If you are happy with the above criteria and want to enquire further or reserve a cat, please email.

Kitten/Cat Adoption Checklist

Before contacting or visiting the advertiser for this Persian. Please make sure you have printed and read this checklist fully. Do NOT buy a cat or kitten from the advertiser unless you are happy that they follow all the advice on the list.

  • Do your research first
    Getting a new cat or kitten is a massive commitment, so make sure you have researched the breed fully and have the time and commitment necessary to care for the cat. You can read our detailed Information guide about cats for potential new cat owners. Also read our Persian Cat breed information profile.
  • Confirm that the advertiser is genuine
    You should verify this by arranging to visit the cat or kitten at the advertisers home, if they make excuses or try to ask for money or a deposit without seeing the cat, or if the advertiser attempts to deliver the kittens or meet you at any other location than their own home, then please do not agree to this. NEVER send money online for any cat. Please read our article on avoiding potential scams.
    If you are unsure that the advertiser is genuine, please report them to us.
  • Is the Kitten over 8 Weeks of age?
    Kittens must be at least 8 weeks old and fully weaned before they can leave their mothers. Most responsible sellers will keep their kittens longer than this before they let them go to new homes. Read further information on the minimum age kittens should be before leaving their mothers
  • Check the Health of the kitten or cat
    It can be difficult for the average person to check if a cat or kitten is healthy or not, so if you decide to adopt or buy the kitten, make sure that the seller agrees that you can return them within 48 hours for a full refund after taking the cat or kitten to a Vet of your choice for a health check. The seller should be willing to let you do this. If the kitten has already been health checked by their own vet, make sure you get evidence for this in the form of vet records and phone their vet to confirm this.
  • Can the kittens be viewed with their Mother?
    The advertiser should ALWAYS let you see the kittens with their mother, and in certain circumstances should let you see the kittens father. Not being able to see the kittens mother is a sign the kittens have not been bred by the advertiser.
  • Is the kitten or cat up to date with their vaccinations?
    kittens should receive 2 vaccinations, the first at around 8 weeks of age and the second, two to three weeks later. Kittens should not be allowed outside until 7 days after their second injection. Cats should also receive a yearly vaccination booster. Ask the breeder which vaccinations they have had and if not, why not. If the seller has not started the kittens vaccinations, it will be your responsibility to make sure you arrange both vaccinations 7 days before letting your kitten go outside. (More Info)
  • Have the kittens been treated for worms and fleas?
    Kittens should really be wormed at around 2 weeks of age, and again at around 5 weeks of age, and finally just before they leave the seller/breeder at 8 to 12 weeks of age.
  • Is the cat/kitten registered with the GCCF, TICA or FIFe?
    If they are, then check to make sure you are given the correct documents BEFORE you decide to take the cat home. It may also be worth phoning the organisation to check the information provided is correct.

Strawberry Persian Pedigree Cat Rescue

Pets4Homes member since April 2015

We are a rescue for pedigree looking cats from all over the UK. We have collected pedigree cats in need and also helped transport cats for adoption all over the UK. We are all unpaid volunteers committed to helping pedigree cats in need or helping you to rehome your Persian or long-haired pedigree cats or if you want to adopt an adult fluffy! We use a volunteer homecheck network who can cover almost anywhere! We now have fosterers in Kent, London, Essex, Norfolk and the North East of England. It is very, very rare for us to have any pedigree kittens available to adopt, but please consider adopting an adult cat needing a home! We vet check and homecheck all possible adoptees of cats. Cas we take in are neuteured, vaccinated including FeLv, vet checked, wormed, groomed and flea treated. We will match the cats for adoption to potential adopters to try and ensure the best match for lifestyle. We have some already approved adopters already awaiting a suitable Persian or pair of Persians wanting a home. We have had rescue Persian cats for over 20 years.
