Patch has some wonderful news!

When he came into our care, he was classed as having stage 2 renal failure.

It's now dropped to stage 1!

This loving boy will soon be looking for a new home xx

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!

Does anyone remember Titch?  
She was our poor mummy cat who rejected her kittens.

Well look at her kittens, Flosie and Baz NOW!

Our fantastic volunteer, Carol, hand reared them from birth, 
which is never easy, and they have now gone to
their new forever home.

Whilst they might still look tiny, both kittens left us
fully vaccinated and neutered...and completely adorable!

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

Looking for an enviromentally friendly rodent control service
for your stables, garden centre, factory, farm or smallholding?

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

To enquire about working cats contact
Sharon at 07935 727 787
or write us at enquires@cherwell.cats.org.uk  

Also, please note that during lockdown we will only be able to home
cats within the Cherwell catchment area.

Our branch covers the following postcodes:  
OX7, OX15, OX16, OX17, OX25, OX26, OX27 and NN13.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
If you live outside of our postcode, please check Cat Protection's 
main website for information about your local area.  

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.

We are over the moon to be awarded 
'Local Charity of the Year' by Pets at Home Bicester
and the Pets at Home Foundation

Thank you so much and congratulations to our amazing volunteers!


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.


Covid update...

Cherwell Cats Protection 'Adopt a Cat' program will CONTINUE 
to run during the lockdown - with our
 hands-free homing process.

We’re keen to help as many cats as possible, both during the current crisis and beyond.
Offering our cats a home will help to free up more space to take in emergency cases.

We have put in extensive procedures to make sure that our
homing process is in line with current government guidance,
without putting adoptees or our volunteers at risk.  

Please see our 'Adopt a Cat' page on this website for more information.

And check you are within a reasonable distance of our Cherwell branch. 
You can find your nearest branch at www.cats.org.uk/find-us

can be taken
to help cats in our care.

We do accept donations of all types of cat food,
even those bags that might have been opened.  
We will gratefully take adult cat food, kitten food, senior food,
and even that for specific diets.
