It’s true, cats rule the internet. View Cats Protection’s very own live webcam stream of cats doing what cats do during the day. Tune in to the live feed and experience what it’s like to be more cat.

Check out our live feed of a cat pen inside our National Cat Adoption Centre situated in Sussex. Experience what it’s like to be waiting patiently for a new home during lockdown while being cared for by our experienced team of staff.

The National Cat Adoption Centre was built in 2004 and houses up to 300 cats at any one time. Our centres and branches are currently closed to the public and we’ve temporarily suspended rehoming to protect the health of all our cats, staff and volunteers but for those currently in care, they will be receiving plenty of food, fun and fuss. You can read more about our latest updates here: www.cats.org.uk/coronavirus

Our webcam will only be live during the daytime (around 9am-4pm)

A typical day in the life of a cat at one of our centres:

  • 8am: feeding time, breakfast is served
  • 9am: our staff focus on cleaning and tidying the centre
  • 10am: the Adoption Centre would usually open to the public at this time but for now things are a little quieter for the cats than usual. For our staff they are busy checking, medicating and spending time with the cats
  • 1pm: afternoon snooze
  • 3pm: dinnertime!


*Please note the above schedule is representative of a typical day for a cat in one of our pens. Therefore, timings and activities may vary depending on the requirements of our cats and staff.

Who is this in the webcam pen?

Meet Barry our latest cat to be in the webcam pen. He is also our current Cat Sponsorship cat for the National Cat Adoption Centre. Brilliant Barry is a sweet boy who enjoys a fuss on his terms, he’s quite an independent chap and will let you know when he wants some time to himself. Once Barry is feeling calm and comfortable around his new humans he will show them how much he enjoys human company and will even try to seek out their affection. Barry loves a head and chin rub so much that sometimes he even dribbles!

Frequently asked questions

Can’t see a cat?
Unfortunately, we are unable to show the whole pen with our webcams, as each pen has an outdoor area through a cat flat, where the cat can climb, stretch, play and get a little privacy!

Empty pen?
If the pen is empty or cleaned out this is a good sign! This means our previous cat has most likely been rehomed and the pen is going through the stages to prepare it for whoever needs it next.

Black webcam screen?
From time to time, our webcam may be out of action if we are experiencing technical issues. When this happens we aim to resolve any problems as swiftly as possible so please do come back regularly to see more cats in action!
