Cats Protection wants to work with communities to control cat numbers and make sure they are looked after – this will be good for the community and good for cats.

We can do this by keeping tabs on the strays, but we need your help.

Bulwell Cat Watch

Located in Nottinghamshire, Bulwell is a small market town with a number of stray cats. It was the first place that we focused on as part of our cat watch programme. 

We've been working with Bulwell residents since September 2016 to control cat numbers and make sure they are well looked after. We have now neutered over 100 cats in the community. We continue to work with community cat carers in Bulwell and have been providing outdoor cat shelters through our partnership with Nottingham Probation Trust.

Other Cat Watch initiatives

We’re asking you to take a picture of a stray cat if you see one, using the app (see below). It’s quick and easy. Uploading a record of when and where you saw the stray cat will help Cats Protection know how many strays there are so we can help control numbers.

Once we know where the cats are, we will be able to help them by getting them health checked and neutered to stop them producing more kittens. Stray cats suitable for rehoming will be taken into care for adoption as soon as possible. We will ensure we work closely with communities, making sure residents are fully informed at all times. Look out for our teams in your area.
