Kittens need forever homes

Can you help?

Cats Protection are beginning to get busy with kittens coming into our care. Some of these are ready for rehoming now, while others will be ready over the next couple of months.
There is an adoption fee, but all kittens come having had a vet check, flea/worm treatment, vaccination and microchip. We will also contribute to cost of neutering when the time comes.
If you think you could give one or more of these kittens a loving forever home please telephone our switchboard on 01235 221147 or email giving full contact details including your current situation and requirements. This will enable us to match you to suitable kittens and then we will be in touch with you. Please do not Facebook message as we can only deal with enquiries for these kittens through our switchboard or email accountAssorted Kittens
The number of kittens we actually have, and what they look like, will vary as time goes by. 


White and black cat lying on a box with one paw over the edge, looking at the camera NIEVA is three years old, and is looking for a home where he is the only pet, and can live on his own terms! He’s lived with his sister and a dog since he was a few weeks old, but he’s turned into a bully cat with them, so it’s time for him to find his own place. He’s very timid at first, but once he gets to know you, he will lie next to you and reward chin rubs with purrs!

Nieva needs a calm, experienced owner, who can bring out the best in him. Are you the right person for Nieva?
UPDATE: 16/11/23 - Nieva is HAS A NEW HOME!!

In particular we would love:

Feral/Farm Cats Available

From time to time we are asked to help reduce the size of cat colonies in the Oxfordshire area. This means we go out trapping cats which then need a good home.

We are looking, in particular, for farmers, smallholders or stables who may need good hunters to help with any vermin issues. All the new owners would need to do is give the cats somewhere to shelter and put out some food for them.

All trapped cats will be neutered and have a thorough vet check before they are moved on.

If you are interested please contact the Oxfordshire branch of CP on 01235221147 or email

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 £100 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
