Sponsor a Cat Cabin in Oxfordshire
For as little as 19p per day, 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.

Sponsoring one of our cat pens is one of the best ways you can help, providing them with shelter, warmth, food, medical care and the love they need.
Sponsorship can be done in two ways.
Sponsorship via Cats Protection HQ
To get started, just choose the cat and pen you'd like to sponsor from the gallery: the cats you see are real cats in need, but not necessarily at our branch; they are representing our cats.
When you sponsor a Cat Cabin, you'll receive a welcome pack including a personalised certificate, your very first photo introducing you to the lovely cat you're currently helping to care for in your pen, a photo album to collect all your photos along the way and a window sticker! And that's not all. Throughout your time as a Cats Protection Sponsor we will keep you posted with regular newsletters and new photos of the cat in your pen and will update you by email with stories, videos and photos on all the sponsorship news. You can even access your sponsor area on our website where you can see more information about the cats you're helping, including videos and wonderful photos of your current sponsor cat.
Even though these specific cats are not housed by us, they are representing the cats in our care, and if you sponsor via the link above, Oxford and District Branch will recieve 100% of the money

Some of our long term residents
||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 (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 (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.
