Adopt a cat


There is a cat waiting for you today

Below, you will find pictures and a description of our cats available for adoption. Kittens are always in demand but please consider giving a home to an older cat. They are so full of character and love. We always carry out a "home visit" to all prospective new owners to ensure that we are fitting the right cat to the right home. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions.

If you are interested in adopting any of our cats please use the 'contact us about this cat' button at the bottom of their page. All of our cats are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (if old enough) and we ask adopters for a fee when rehoming a cat. If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would be gratefully received.

Our current adoption fee is £85 for an adult cat and £100 for a kitten under 6 months.

A guide to 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.

Here is our guide to adopting a cat using hands-free homing:

  • 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 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 the adoption fee, usually by bank transfer
  • Bringing your cat home. Once this is finalised, we’ll arrange for a driver to bring your cat safely to your home
  • Be supported. You’ll receive follow-up calls during the first month 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
