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 March, we rehomed 14 cats and 6 kittens.
Dixie went to her new home in March, and has settled in splendidly. Spinner, a feral tuxedo cat born on an industrial estate last
year and fed by a caring lady, came in to us on 24th of March and went to his new home on 29th! He had never been in a
house before, but adjusted to foster care with amazing rapidity, using his litter tray on the first day - most ferals take much
longer if they cope at all. Spinner met his new family on Saturday, they loved him and he went home with them on Sunday.
Cats are amazing!

Let's find a home this month for MORRIS.
Morris, born 2012, is friendly and affectionate and a real boy cat. He must be kept INDOORS with only supervised access outside as he is FIV positive
It's Flea Time!!! - here's some advice to keep your kitty happy
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
