Sponsor a Cat Cabin in Oxfordshire

For as little as £20 per year, you can sponsor one of our Cat Cabins. The cabins, which are heated when necessary, are used to house some of our “special needs” cats but also as a temporary home for strays that are brought to us, and cats whose owners have to give them up for various reasons. The more cabins we can afford, the more of these cats we can take in until we can find them a good home. Below are the pictures and stories of our current “special needs” cats that cannot be homed and are cared for by our volunteers. As a sponsor, you will receive a Certificate of Sponsorship and a copy of our quarterly magazine, Cats Whiskers, with stories about our work and the cats we have homed, updates on our “special needs” cats and other articles.

To sponsor a cabin, please fill in the sponsorship form using the link above and send it to us.


Two pictures of Biscuit Biscuit (born 2008)

Biscuit came to us as a stray in 2011, very nervous of people and therefore aggressive. She didn’t settle as an indoor foster cat so was moved to Jackie’s large garden as a permanent resident where, after disappearing for a couple of weeks, she was found in the compost heap, where she had made a snug bed! Jackie provided her with better shelter and with food. At the beginning of 2012, she still lashed out when Jackie tried to pet her. Another year on, and Biscuit is coming indoors of her own accord, accepts being petted and even being picked up – while she is eating! For the moment, Biscuit is happy and safe and we continue to care for her.

Annie Annie (born 2003)

Annie is a semi-feral who arrived with her brother, Tommy, in 2003. Unfortunately, Tommy died suddenly aged three, leaving Annie on her own. Later, Ebony, another special needs cat, was taken in and they became devoted companions. Sadly, Ebony developed a tumour and had to be put to sleep in 2011, so Annie is on her own again. She has her own cabin and is free to come and go as she pleases. In the cold winter of 2010/2011, Annie decided that it might be better indoors. She now sometimes goes indoors but still only trusts Jackie, who can pet her, and runs away from everyone else.

Milka and Mica Milka and Mica (born 2012):

Brother and sister, Milka and Mica, came to us from Frilford Golf Course in 2012 with their mother and two siblings. Mother was a friendly girl and she and the other two were homed but these two were very timid. After a while in a pen at Jackie’s, they were allowed out to roam the garden. In 2013, they were brave enough to follow Jackie’s cats indoors for food and can now be found curled up on the bed upstairs quite often! Milka would still rather not be touched but Mica is more friendly. They have a lovely life in Jackie’s big garden...


Fizzy and Phizer (born 2011):

These black sisters were born in a garden in Harwell. The owner was able to care for their mother and sibling but asked us to take them in. They were both very frightened of people and it was decided they couldn’t be homed. They went to Julie’s where they were eventually allowed out of their pen. Fizzy now quite likes going indoors and has accepted people to a degree but Phizer still prefers to be an outdoor cat. They are now happy cats, secure in the home they have come to love.
