Adopt a cat from Cats Protection Brighton & District

Here you will find the cats in care at Brighton & District Branch of Cats Protection that are ready for adoption. We will have other cats in care that may not quite be ready to go home so please keep an eye on this page or register an interest in adoption with our homing volunteers.

Whilst many of the cats that come into our care have a history of being indoor only we do prefer all our cats to have outdoor access in their new homes and will therefore prioritise those families that have a safe,  suitable outside space for each of our cats needs. Occasionally we will need to keep a cat as an indoor cat usually because of medical needs. Where this is the case it will be stated on the cats profile.

Home visits
Our cats are looked after in our fosterers' own homes and we do require that prospective owners have a home visit from one of our homing team members.  This is an informal visit, where all aspects of cat care may be discussed and information gathered to help us assess whether the cat that you have chosen would be a good match for your family. Currently under Covid 19 restrictions these visits will be by video confernecing.

Reservations and Shortlisting 
On occasions we do see a lot of interest in particular cats, particularly young or pedigree type cats.  In response we may place a reserve on the cat until we work through the initial enquiries or we may use a shortlisting process to determine the most suitable home for a cat where there are high levels of interest. We will try to acknowledge all adoption enquiroes within 48 hours.
