Adopt a cat
We suspend homing for the Christmas & New Year period from 18th December and 2nd January but the centre is still open so please come along and reserve a furry friend.
The Adoption Centre is open to view the cats and kittens in our care every day 11am until 3pm with no need to make an appointment. We have around a hundred cats looking for homes at the moment, all of our cats have been treated to our minimum veterinary standards. This means:
To help cover these costs there is an adoption fee of £60 per cat or kitten, it does not cover the cost of all of their treatment but it does boost the kitty. You will be able to reserve a cat when you visit and then we ask that you collect them within one week, during this time we will have contacted you by telephone to advise you on how to settle them in.
- They have been examined by our veterinary surgeon
- Vaccinated against flu, enteritis and FeLV
- Treated against fleas, roundworm and tapeworm
- Neutered or spayed
A cat’s behaviour in their pen is not always a true representation of their real
character.They are in an unfamiliar environment and may be taking time to get to know their new surroundings. For this reason some cats can appear apprehensive about saying hello but don’t let this put you off.
Remember their whole world has changed. They may not understand that you could be the one to change it back again for the better. Be patient, it pays dividends.When you meet for the first time please take things quietly and slowly, allowing the cat to come to you.
We have kittens at the adoption centre looking for homes, however they tend to find homes quickly so you will not find them on the website. We advise that you give us a call before you visit and we can let you know the details on who is available. We also let you know via Facebook if a litter is available.
Kittens are only available for homing once they have been signed off by the vet as suitable to leave the care of mum, they are also neutered before they go home.
Some of the cats in our care may not yet be on our website. If you are looking for a feline companion, please contact us on 01332 824950
