What we do

We are a small branch on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and the Isle of Mull, 50 miles west of Fort William. We have just a few willing helpers to cover a large area.

Since our formation in 1999, we have homed and neutered many cats, and dealt with several ferals, which are numerous in our area. As there is a distance of many miles (both land and water) between the coordinator, secretary, treasurer and volunteers, communication is mostly by phone. 

The aims of Cats Protection are:

To rescue stray and unwanted cats, and to rehome where possible. 

To encourage neutering to prevent unwanted kittens.

To educate the public on the care of cats.
