Cat adoption in Belfast

Could you provide a loving new home for a cat in Northern Ireland? During the process of adopting a cat from us, we’ll consider everything from your potential pet’s personality and how this fits with your lifestyle, to your home environment – creating the perfect match for both cat and owner and the start of a wonderful feline friendship.

Cats available for adoption from Cats Protection Belfast Adoption Centre are featured below. To express your interest in a particular cat, please enquire via their listing. Please note, that by submitting an expression of interest for a particular cat doesn't mean you have reserved this cat. We get numerous expressions of interest for each cat and each home will be individually considered against the specific rehoming needs for each cat. If you have any general enquiries about your suitability, or the adoption process, please email us.

If you don't spot your purrfect feline companion on this occasion then please do check back again or alternatively have a look at the cats in care with our friends in Cats Protection's branch network across Northern Ireland:
