June 16th was Mature Moggies Day!

Although at Cherwell Cats Protection, EVERYDAY is Mature Moggies Day.

In fact our beloved in care cats Monty and Stan are 'cats of a certain age'.

Monty is only 14 years old and Stan is only 18 years old,
 and they are deperately waiting for a new forever homes.

They have so much to offer, and they won't scale your
curtains, or knock ornaments off your shelves!  
Extremely affectionate mature moggies, Monty and Stan just want
cuddles, naps, more fuss, and a warm home.

More about Monty and Stan is on their adopt-a-cat page - Adopt a Cat

Did you know that Mature Moggies (cats over 11 yrs old) spend
an average of 4x times longer than kittens in care 
waiting to be adopted?  
In fact Monty has been in our care now for over 190 days!

'Senior kitizens', like Monty and Stan, have so much to offer
but are so often overlooked.

They are ready to be part of a family again.
They just need that purr-fect person...

It is SO important to have your cats neutered  
And for males, it is just a quick, simple operation 
that can make a big difference to their quality of life.

So please get your cats neutered, and spread the word to anyone
you know who has an unneutered cat or kitten.

We can offer support with the cost of your cat's 
neutering operation for those on low income or certain benefits
but you MUST live in one of these postcodes:

OX 7, OX 15, OX16, OX17, OX25, OX26, OX27 or NN13

Please email us at neutering@cherwell.cats.org.uk  or 
call or text us at 07584 642 485
to learn more about this neutering voucher scheme.

 Besides this being a great picture in general, 

we thought you might want to see some of the work
done by our branch with ferals...

All of these cats - 6 females and 1 male - were catched,
neutered, and released.  And then fed a delicous meal in the
riding stable where they live!  

To learn more about our feral TNR (trap, neuter and release) program

We have out of work mousers looking for 
local employment opportunities.

Our working cats are just waiting to pounce on the right opportunity!

Ideal locations are: stable yards, farms, large gardens, 
and small holdings.

The cats will need somewhere to shelter and to be fed daily.
They will certainly earn their keep as they are proven mousers!

Do you have a spare room in your house?

Have you ever thought about becoming a cat foster carer?
We are need foster homes!

More fosterers allows Cherwell CP to help more cats.  

And home fosterers are important to help socialise cats
in our care that are scared of pens.

You just need one room in your house.  There will be no cost to you,
Cats Protection covers all costs.  It is emotionally rewarding, not
draining!  We will even cover your holidays if needed.  

Full training will be given.  Home owners MUST be cat lovers.
Support is always on hand.  And when your foster cat has been
rehomed...do not worry... now you can help another cat!

For more information please call 01869 908 308 or
write us at enquiries@cherwell.cats.org.uk


We appreciate that it is such a difficult decision...
but does YOUR cat need to be rehomed?

We take cats in for many reasons due to a variety of different situations.
It may be because of a change in the house like moving, or
a change in the family, or new pets including the birth of kittens. 
Or maybe you have a stray coming to your home in need of help.

These changes can affect a cat and we are here to help all we can.
Please remember no pet needs to ever be abandoned. 
We are here to help without judgement.

If you do want to hand a cat to us to rehome,
please give it something familiar to them like a blanket
or jumper so that it can settle more easily during the transition.

The cat will have a full vet check before leaving our care.
It will be neutered, chipped, flead and wormed, and vaccinated.
A good home and a happy cat is our final achievement.

Contact Stephanie 07759 620 055 or at tig@openallhours.biz 
or go to www.cats.org.uk/what-we-do/giving-up-a-cat 
for more information.


Having to re-home your pet can be a very difficult thing to do
and is a process we go through with most of the cats in our care.
But if we can help you to keep your cat safe and well in the home
it knows best then it can make a cat's (and it's owner's) life
a lot more harmonious.  

Sometimes small changes can make big differences!

Calling us on 01869 908 308 or email enquires@cherwell.cats.org.uk
will enable you to speak to an experienced member of our
volunteer staff who will be happy to listen
and offer a way we can best help you.

We are often kindly asked where food donations
can be taken
to help cats in our care.

and even that for specific diets.
