Adopt a cat
The current guidance from our Head Office is as follows:
We will not undertake any face to face fundraising or education activity
- We will only rehome in the local area and within tier/national boundary (ie we will not travel in and out of tier/across national boundary to rehome)
- We will limit our cat intake to cats that are currently in an unsuitable environment
- We will collect and deliver cats using hands-free homing procedures
- We will work in partnership with our vets to support them in prioritising and restricting activity
Our apologies that we are limited currently, but we must keep our volunteers and others safe. We look forward to when restrictions are lifted.
Before leaving our care, all of our cats and kittens will have been checked thoroughly by a vet for any health issues, given flea and worm treatments, blood tested for FIV/FeLV (feline aids and leukaemia virus), vaccinated, micro-chipped and, if old enough, neutered.
Please ask your vets how much they would charge you for an initial course of vaccinations, flea and worm treatment and micro-chipping your cat. Add in the cost of neutering and you soon realise what a great deal adopting from us can be!
Our adoption fee is £85 per cat/kitten. However, we do not make any profit from the re-homing of our cats/kittens, as the fee charged rarely covers the costs of the above treatments and procedures food, litter and toys whilst they are in our care.
If you feel able to make a donation on top of the fee that would, of course, be gratefully received. We are able to reclaim Gift Aid if you are a UK tax payer. This means that we can reclaim from the government a whopping 25p for every £1 donated at no cost to you! We know times are hard so thank you for your decision to re-home a CP cat.
Where a kitten is re-homed and is too young to be neutered, we offer advice and assistance to get them neutered at the appropriate time and follow up to ensure this has gone smoothly.
It is our policy to carry out a home check prior to adoption of a cat or kitten. While Covid-19 remains a risk, this will be carried out via phone and possibly video call and may require you to share or send pictures of the inside of the home where the cat would live..
