Welcome to Oxford and District Cats Protection!
The Oxford and District Cats Protection is one of more than 250 groups
of Cats Protection volunteers in the UK, rescuing, treating, neutering
and rehoming unwanted, abandoned or needy cats and kittens.
In February, we rehomed 5 cats and 3 kittens.
We homed 5 cats in February including Domino, who was in our care for just over a year. He is 10 years old, a lovely, friendly boy, and had a flea allergy resulting in skin lesions when he came to us. The steroid treatment for that caused him to develop diabetes, as it does in some cats (and humans!). The diabetes cleared up eventually when he had been off steroids for a while. Domino was adopted by one of the vets where he was first brought in and who has cared for him all that time. He will be very well cared for and much loved!
All 3 kittens that were available were homed in February. We will have kittens ready for homing towards the end of April.

Our coordinator, Sheila Hawthorne, has been nominated for this
award. Well done, Sheila!
Let's find a home this month for LUCY and GEORGE.
February's cat, Dixie, went to her new home on 11th March. Good luck, Dixie!
The January edition of our magazine, Cats Whiskers, is available now featuring "How to successfully introduce your new cat or kitten to your existing family pets" plus our regular reports.
Established in 1988, we work through a network of fosterers, who provide temporary accommodation for needy cats until safe, loving, permanent homes can be found for them. The fosterers are supported by other volunteers who concentrate on fund-raising.
Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee when offering a home to a cat or kitten as they are all vet-checked, micro-chipped and receive their first vaccinations before going to their new homes and, if old enough, are neutered. If you feel able to make a donation on top of that fee, it would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you if you decide to give a loving home to one of our cats
