Could you adopt WISKAS?

Wiskas is looking for a new homeWISKAS is a handsome boy with odd coloured eyes, just like David Bowie.  He has had both of his ears removed because of cancer, which will not return - and he is not deaf!  Once his fur grows back he is looking forward to going outside, but he wants to be an only cat.  Could you be his special somebody?

MARBLE was not chosen.  She is sad and hoping to meet someone who will love her....

In February, we rehomed 6 cats and 12 kittens

Where are they now?

16 cats and 14 kittens found new homes in 2018

Numbers are down because so many fosterers have adopted the cats they were looking after, which is great for both cats and owners, but reduces the number of spaces available for new cats coming in. We are pleased that the number of kittens that we have taken in has gone down - our neutering program seems to be paying off.  

Lily Danger!

Lilies are dangerous!Don't buy lilies for your Mum if she has a cat! It is not only eating the plant that can cause poison a cat - brushing past the flower and then grooming the pollen from the fur can also have the same effect.

Sign our Petition to tighten up air gun laws

Cats are in the sights of unregulated air gun users
Both Northern Ireland and Scotland already have air gun licencing laws in place, and with a lack of UK-wide regulation, it has been reported that 90% of air gun attacks on cats happen in England and Wales. Cats Protection have started a petition to get the laws extended to England and Wales.
Established in 1988, we work through a network of fosterers, who provide temporary accommodation for needy cats until safe, loving, permanent homes can be found for them. The fosterers are supported by other volunteers who concentrate on fund-raising.

Cats Protection asks adopters for an adoption fee of £70 when offering a home to a cat or kitten as they are all vet-checked, micro-chipped and receive their first vaccinations before going to their new homes and, if old enough, are neutered. If you feel able to make a donation on top of that fee, it would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you if you decide to give a loving home to one of our cats
