Adopt a cat


 Please scroll down to see the list of cats in our care.

Before any cat in our care is rehomed it has been examined by a veterinary surgeon, been vaccinated against flu and enteritis, treated against fleas, roundworm and tapeworm and any sick cats have been blood tested for FIV and FeLV.

If the cat has not been neutered before or during its time in our care, we will normally ensure owners have done this after adoption, and any behavioural problems are expertly handled.

Telephone or email us to let us know of your interest, but remember that our Branch is run by volunteers who often have full-time jobs. Your phone calls and emails will be passed on to our Homing Officer who will contact you as soon as possible.

Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee when rehoming a cat. If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to rehome a CP cat! On average, each cat can cost the branch more than £350 before it is ready for rehoming.

NEW CHANGES FOR HOMING IF YOU ARE RENTING - on the homing visit please can you now make sure you have a copy of your landlords written permission for you to have cats in the property.  This is from January 2010 a legal requirement before homing a cat/kitten from Cats Protection.

We often have sick or elderly cats that we find stay with us a for a long time, and we still need to find these dear cats a loving new home, so if you feel you are able to offer one of our elderly cats and sick cats a new home please do get in touch with us and we can make arrangements for them to be viewed.
