Founded in 1991 and situated in the Forest of Dean between the rivers Severn and Wye, we enjoy a rural location but incorporate the larger towns of Cinderford, Coleford & Lydney. On the edge of our area are Ross-on Wye, Chepstow and Monmouth, all of which we cover.

We are all volunteers with the exception of the manager of our shop which is located in Lydney High Street. The shop, The Forest Cat, is the mainstay of our fundraising activity.

Our resident cats are cared for in cosy units erected in our fosterers’ gardens. Each unit consists of an insulated sleeping cabin with an electrically heated bed and a spacious outdoor run maintained to the standard of a professional cattery.
