Your cat into our care

Your cat into our care

Moving home, relationship break-ups or bereavemecat laying downnts in the family – these are just some of the many reasons that owners have to make the heartbreaking decision to separate from their cat.

While a decision like this is never easy, Cats Protections aims to make it as hassle-free as possible.

Behavioural issues

If you're considering giving up your cat due to behavioural issues, make sure you speak to a vet or animal behaviourist first. Signs of agression, destructiveness or inappropriate toileting can be distressing for owners but with time and patience, there are things that can be done to help.

If you find you can no longer care for your cat, follow our steps on what to do next.

• Don’t be tempted to advertise your cat online or on social media. Unfortunately this doesn’t always ensure that your pet will go to a good home.

• Plan as early as possible. There can often be waiting lists for spaces in our pens, so planning early means knowing your cat is in a safe place.
