September's Cat

Is Sooty the cat for you? Could you rehome SOOTY?

Sooty is seven years old, and originally came to us because his owner, who had rehomed him from an abusive situation,  went into hospital. Sadly, she cannot have him back again.  He has been in a pen since MARCH!  He is a gentle and affectionate cat, but afraid of men because of his experience.  He would make a lovely pet for a lady with a quiet home.  Could you be his special person?

In August, we rehomed 6 cats and 8 kittens

July's cat, Bonnie, has gone to a lovely home.

Where are they now?

So far, 52 cats and 25 kittens have found new homes this year

Fosterers needed!

Some of our fosterers have become so attached to the cats in their care that they have become adopters instead!  So we need fosterers to foster a cat or two (if they are a pair) indoors while we find a home for them. All costs are paid for by the branch and we supply equipment but the cats must be kept indoors. And the fosterers must be ready to give them up when a home is found....Please contact us if you would like to know more about becoming a fosterer.

Lilly Danger!Watch out for lilies - all parts of the lily are very dangerous to cats , causing irreversible and sometimes fatal kidney damage. Generally, of course, cats don't eat lilies, but the problem is that orange pollen, which can not only shake onto a cat's coat and be groomed off, swallowed and so poison them, but also stains clothing and furniture - so use a pair of scissors to snip out the big pollen-bearing stamens from the flowers before arranging them, and then you can enjoy them with no worries.

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 an adoption fee of £70 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
