Adopting a cat

To view the cats that we have for adoption, please scroll down this page.

We are delighted to say that hands free homing is working very well, with most cats being homed from our waiting list before they need to go onto our website. At present our pens are full but the cats may still be going through their neutering and vaccination programmes. If you are seriously thinking about adopting a cat, you will need to complete a homing questionnaire and speak to our welfare team who will help to identify a suitable companion for you. Please call 07824 560810 or email welfareteamleader@tauntonandminehead.cats.org.uk

Kittens : If you are interested in kittens please call us on 01643 653053 or email mineheadenquiries@taunton

The following hints might help you with your choice

Offering a cat a new home is always a big decision, especially as many cats now live into their late teens and early twenties! A cat is for life and should be seen as a long-term commitment. Each cat or kitten has its own personality and needs, and they make wonderful companions and very rewarding pets.

Before going to a new home, every cat in our care is:
- Fully health-checked by a vet.
- Treated for fleas and worms.
- Vaccinated.
- Microchipped.
- Neutered.
- Homed with 4 weeks free pet insurance.

The average cost of looking after a cat in our care can reach well over £180, and that doesn't include any essential veterinary treatment. Cats Protection branches have to raise funds from donations, fundraising, legacies and of course through their branch shops.
For this reason, we now ask for an adoption fee of £85 for a cat and £105 for a kitten.  Of course any additional donations are gratefully received!

Cats will be homed taking careful note of the new environment and matching it to the temperament of each individual.
