Adopt a cat
If you are looking at getting a feline friend look no further, adoption is the best way to go!
Adopting not only helps one of the many beautiful cats looking for a home, but also opens up space for shelters to take in other cats in need.
We believe in matching the right cat to the right home. That's why we look at everything from your potential pet's personality to where you live - creating the perfect match for both cat and owner.
Cats Protection aims to provide plenty of advice along the way.

Adopt a cat FAQs
At the Ipswich Cats Protection Branch, we request an adoption fee of £85* for every cat or kitten. If you feel able to donate more, that would of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard and thank you for your decision to rehome a CP cat. For this adoption fee you can be sure that your new companion has received a health check by a veterinary professional, been vaccinated, spayed or neutered if needed, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms. A month's FREE Pet Plan Insurance is included. (Subject to terms and conditions) *we reserve the right to request / charge up to £50 extra per pedigree cat.
On average, our branch spends over £150 per cat:
Blood tests for FIV and FeLV - £20
Vaccinations - £40
Neutering - £40-£50
Microchipping - £20
Other costs - cat food, litter and general items a cat needs
Additional medical treatment if required
A home visit will always be required prior to a cat being rehomed. We will also be happy to offer any further support or assistance we can to you and your new feline friend after homing.
Please note we can only home to rented accommodation on receipt of your landlord's written permission.
