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.
We would love to find homes for BEEMA and LARA, who have been with us since January. Both are friendly and affectionate and need homes without other animals or young children. Lara loves a lot of attention and needs a home with someone around a lot. Beema is more independent and just wants a loving home.

Our coordinator, Sheila Hawthorne, has been nominated for this
award. Well done, Sheila!
In April, we rehomed 4 cats and 4 kittens.
We were delighted that Lucy and George, with us since November, went to a lovely couple who will give them the time they need to settle. They came from a home where they were abused and Lucy, in particular, was very timid.
Another wonderful couple gave a home and a future to Ruby, a young tabby with a serious heart-condition.Ruby was found to have a very enlarged aorta. Medication changed her from a little old lady to the young, playful cat she should have been. She will need the medication for the rest of her life and we are grateful to the couple who will provide, not only the medication, but a loving home for sweet Ruby.
Morris, who was April's cat, is staying with his indoor fosterer for the time being because his health problems have flared up. He will now stay with us till he is well enough to go to a new home.
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.
It's Flea Time!!! - here's some advice to keep your kitty happy
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
