Adopt a cat


A guide to our new homing process

We are currently operating on an appointment only basis.

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 employees at risk. While we can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to adopt a cat straight away, you’ll begin the adoption process with us. Our adoption fee is £75 for one cat and £110 for two cats.

Here is our guide to adopting a cat currently

  • Check you are within a reasonable distance of your chosen centre. You can find your nearest centre by typing in your postcode at www.cats.org.uk/find-us 
  • Enquire. If you’ve found a cat on our website that you’re interested in homing, send an enquiry through using our form 
  • Reserve your cat. If you’re found to be a match for your chosen cat, you’ll be contacted by our team 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) 
  • Adopt. Once you have reserved your cat, you’ll be sent paperwork to sign and you’ll make a further telephone appointment with our team. In this call, you’ll have a chance to discuss everything you need to know about your cat. You’ll then pay an adoption fee of £75.00, usually by card payment over the phone 
  • Bringing your cat home. Once this is finalised, we’ll arrange an appointment for you to collect your cat
  • 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

As always, the cats will come:

  • neutered
  • microchipped
  • fully vet checked
  • treated for fleas and worms
  • initial vaccination
  • and four weeks free insurance from Pet Plan.

Please note, these are all the cats currently available for adoption. We are a small centre and although we have more cats in care, not all are ready for adoption. However, we have cats becoming available regularly, so if none of the cats currently available suit your needs, please keep checking weekly for the new cats that become available. The website is updated on a Monday with any new cats that are now ready for homing. 


*NOW RESERVED* Meow, my name is Autumn and I came into Cats Protection initially as one of life's wee stray girls. I was rehomed last year, but I am now looking for my new Fur-ever home. I am being rehomed through the 'alternative adoption' method, which means I will stay in my current home where I am settled and happy until my lovely new home can be found. I have still had all of the veterinary checks that all cats do when re-homed through Cats Protection, meaning I am neutered, vaccinated, fit and healthy and ready to move when the right home is found.

I am a shy girl until I get to know you, therefore I would need to have my own sanctuary room to begin with, where you can come and spend time with me until I feel comfortable. I am looking for an experienced cat owner who will allow me a lot of time and patience to come out of my shell. Once I do trust you, I am such a lovely, friendly girl. I am however fairly independant, and I do like the freedom to do my own thing. Sometimes I love being outside more than being in the house, I therefore need direct front/back door access to a garden, away from any busy roads and an owner who is understanding to my preferred lifestyle and is happy to let me choose where I want to be.

Because I can be shy I would be more suited to a quiet adult only home with no children. I would prefer not to live with other pets. 

I will need to stay in the house for a while until I get used to my new surroundings. I am not used to this so my new owner will have to understand that I may find this difficult, and be willing to take the time to help me adjust to my new environment.

If you think you can offer me the purrfect home, please get in touch at forthvalley@cats.org.uk  

Lots of Love Autumn xx
