Could you rehome PANDORA?

Black and white cat playing with a feather toyPandora is 2.5 year old, shy but friendly with people and dogs, but really does not like other cats.  She is hoping for a family with older children and lots of time for cuddling on laps. She would also love to have a garden to play in.

In AUGUST, we rehomed 6 cats and 21 kittens

Read our handy guide for tips on choosing which solution is best for your cat. The choice depends on your own cat's personality, and your circumstances, but leaving it till the last minute is guaranteed to lead to panic and a poor experience for you and your cat.

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
