Cat Guardians is the free service provided by Cats Protection, aimed at giving peace of mind to cat owners concerned about what might happen if they were to pass away before their cat.
If you have cats, we know how much they mean to you. Should something happen to you, you will naturally want to make sure that someone is there to care for the cat or cats you love.
Through our Cat Guardians service, individuals can plan for their cats’ future so that in the event of their death, we will take their cats in to one of our branches or adoption centres and try to find them a loving new home.
Furthermore, Cats Protection promises never to put a healthy cat to sleep, so you can feel assured that we will give your feline friend all the love and care they need until we can find them the new home they deserve.
If you have registered with our Cat Guardians service, as soon as we are notified that you have passed away, we will arrange to bring your cat or cats into the care of one of our nearby branches or adoption centres.
You can register to the Cat Guardians service either online or by post. Once we have received your registration form, you will be sent a confirmation pack in the post.
If you are considering asking us to take care of your cat, we understand that you're likely to have a few questions about our Cat Guardians service. Here are the answers to some of the most common questions we are asked.
More than half the cats we help are cared for thanks to supporters who choose to remember Cats Protection in their will. Find out how a gift in your will can make a huge difference to the lives of the cats and kittens in our care.
