Adopt a cat

Thank you for visiting this page that shows many of the cats and kittens available for homing.  All cats that come into our care undergo a full veterinary check-up, any conditions identified are treated, all adult cats are neutered (depending upon individual circumstances, kittens will be neutered before or after adoption) and both cats and kittens are vaccinated, treated for fleas, wormed and microchipped.  This treatment costs, on average, over £150 and we ask that adopters contribute a fee of £75.  In addition, before any cat is homed, the prospective adopter is visited by one of our volunteers to ensure that the right cat goes to the right home.  When the cat or kitten is homed, it is covered by four weeks' free PetPlan insurance that can be continued by the adopter.

Age discrimination in the workplace is illegal but, unfortunately, that doesn't extend to cats!  Please don’t discriminate; give a home to an older cat.

Please register your interest in homing any of the cats or kittens either by 'phoning our Local Helpline 0845 313 4746 or by email directly tcplvadoption@live.co.uk to register your interest and for information and updates on cats and kittens available.  If you email, please provide your telephone contact number and full address.  Alternatively, if you complete the form available below each cat's details, it will be forwarded by email.

If you would like to volunteer to help in the process of homing our cats, please see our Volunteer page.


Three or four times a year, we hold 'Homing Days' where many of the cats and kittens in our care can be seen.  Please look at our Events page for details.

Many cats will suit a variety of new homes.  However, where appropriate, we identify cats that require special consideration, such as those that would not be comfortable with children or other animals.  We sometimes have a pair of cats that need to be homed together and, when this is the case, it will be highlighted on their profiles.

We sometimes have feral 'undomesticated' cats that need to live outside in the wild, maybe in a garden shed or stable.  All they need is shelter and food/water.  For this they will reward you as champion mousers, ridding your garden or outhouse of mice and rats.  They are also good for people who like cats but don't necessarily want to have a cat indoors.  To watch a short video on feral cats, click here.  To find out more about our fine ferals, ring the Local Helpline on 0845 313 4746.

Please note
that, although we make every effort to ensure that the website is up-to-date, some of the cats shown may already have been adopted whilst others in our care may not yet have been placed on the site.  Please look on our Special Plea page where we have highlighted any of the cats below that we feel have somehow been overlooked.
