Adopt a cat

If you can offer a rescued cat or kitten a new home please ring us on 0345 3712743 .
We can arrange for you to visit any cat that may be suitable. If you decide to adopt a home visit will be required, after which you may take your new friend home. Please note if you live in a flat with no outside access, you will only be considered for re-homing 'indoor cats' - those which have previously only been kept inside or special cases such as elderly cats. Kittens in our care are only re-homed to households which have access to a garden.

Cats Protection asks adopters for a fee when re-homing a cat. If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to re-home a CP cat.
Please note that if you live in rented accommodation you will be asked for proof that your landlord agrees to you having a pet.

 Why Choose a Rescued Cat?

There are lots of reasons why re-homing a rescued cat is preferable to buying a cat or kitten.
  • Why buy a kitten or cat when you can instead make a donation and adopt one that is homeless. There is a huge choice available - from youngsters to oldies, different coat lengths and colours and different personalities. We also rescue pedigrees as well as moggies.
  • Rescued cats from a reputable organisation such as Cats Protection will have been fully vet-checked before being put up for adoption. Any medical history will be fully disclosed so you know what you are getting into.
  • Cats Protection also take time to assess each individual cat. Where information is available from the previous home, important details such as temperament, experience with dogs and other cats and people, will help ensure you choose the right cat to suit your needs and personal situation.
  • Help will always be on the end of the phone. Reassurance that free of charge advice is on hand should you encounter difficulties - will you really be able to phone the person in the newspaper advert from five years ago?

Some of the cats in our care may not yet be on our website. If you are looking for a feline companion, please contact us on 0345 371 2743
