Cherwell Cats Protection 'Adopt a Cat' is back!
But with some changes, including our new 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.

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

Here is how you can adopt a cat from us using hands-free homing... 


If you’ve found a cat on this website's 'Adopt a Cat' page, or on another of our social media pages that you’re interested in homing, send an enquiry email through to tig@openallhours.biz,
or give us a call at 07759 620 055.

Please give as as much detail about yourself, your property location, numbers of people
and other pets in your household, etc.


Please note that unfortunately you will not be able to visit your chosen cat due to Covid 19 regulations. We will ask the fosterer to send photographs, and possibly a bit of video, to you via email to help you make a final decision.

Reserve your cat 

If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted via phone or email. You may be asked for proof of your address and the consent of your landlord (if you live in a rented property). A virtual home visit will be carried out. At this point, and at any time during the process, you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat with the Homing Officer or current fosterer.


Once you have reserved your cat, you will be contacted by a member of the team to arrange a suitable time for us to deliver him/her to you or for you to collect. Prior to the delivery/ collection day you’ll be emailed paperwork to sign and return. You will receive the cat’s vaccination records and medical records on the delivery/ collection day. The adoption fee (£95) will need to be paid prior to collection/ delivery by BACS.

Bringing your cat home 

Once all this is finalised, one of our designated drivers will bring your cat safely to your home or you can collect, keeping to government guidelines and social distancing. We will use a CP carrier to do this which cannot be taken back on the day or you can bring your own carrier which will be disinfected.

Be supported 

You’ll receive a follow-up call or email around three, seven and 21 days after the adoption to check that your new arrival is settled in. You can also find help and advice on the Cats Protection website at www.cats.org.uk/advice


In the unlikely event of the cat not settling in, or you deciding that perhaps it isn’t the cat for you, there will be a two-week cooling off period in which the cat may be returned and monies refunded. Hopefully this will not be the case.
