May's Cat

Chloe is waiting for her forever home.... Could you rehome CHLOE?

Chloe is a sweet tabby girl, born 2014. She was found in a box under a hedge, with her 4 tiny kittens. Sadly one of the kittens died but the other 3 are ready for a new home and so is Chloe. She has been in a pen for nearly 3 months now and is getting fed-up. As we don’t know her history, we feel Chloe shouldn’t go to a home with small children but she will be fine with slightly older children.

Chloe was April's cat but we thought she deserved another chance, se we're featuring her in May as well. Could you be Chloe's special someone?

In April, we rehomed 10 cats and 4 kittens

March's cat, Alfie, has gone to a lovely home.

Where are they now?

So far, 33 cats and 6 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
