Adopt a cat

Before starting the process of adopting one of our cats, please take a few minutes to consider the following: You could be committing to your new cat for up to 20 years. How long can you offer continued care and stability? Veterinary fees can be expensive and you should expect to visit the vet at least once a year for a health check and vaccinations. Other preventative healthcare measures include flea and worming treatments (usually every month and every three months respectively). Pet insurance will help cover the cost of any major illness or emergency treatment. We will provide four weeks of free pet insurance when adopting one of our cats as well as the cats/kittens being neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flead and wormed. Cats Protection ask adopters for an adoption fee to help cover these costs, if you feel able to make a donation on top of this fee, it will always be gratefully received and will go a long way to us helping even more rescued cats

All cats of any age adopted from us with pre-existing health conditions requiring ongoing veterinary treatment, continue to be supported by Cats Protection. In relation to cats aged 12 and over at the time of adoption, Worthing branch is also willing to consider, if required, helping owners with veterinary costs relating to specific ‘age related’ illnesses. In such cases, veterinary treatment must be agreed with us in advance and the CP named veterinary practice used.  The scheme does not cover any costs related to preventative treatment such as vaccinations, worm and flea treatments, neither does it cover injuries/accidents for which insurance is recommended. 

We have older rescued cats in our care that are looking for loving homes to live out their retirement years. Our 12+ cats deserve a loving home just as much as the younger cats and the advantages of adopting an older cat is they are more likely to be thinking about their favourite sleeping place than to go hunting and bring you presents i.e. mice, rats, birds, or frogs!!

If you are interested in giving any of our rescue cats a loving home you can call Kathy direct on 01903 873717.
