Welcome to our virtual shelter! We hope that we have a cat or kitten in care for you!

All of our cats are defleaed, wormed, vaccinated, and if over 5 months, neutered and microchipped. If the cats have been a vulnerable or older stray they are also bloodchecked for the viruses FIV and FeLV.

For many of our cats, this is the second, third or even fourth chance of a good life and therefore there are things that we'll ask you to make sure that we find just the right cat for you, for example...

We'll look at the traffic flow around the property as unfortunately this is still the main killer of cats. This includes bus routes, cut throughs and school runs.

Are there any other pets or children in the home - there are some cats are better suited to adult homes and some that thrive in the busy homes of families and other pets

We also ask that if you're at work full time, you can provide shelter for the cat during the day - a catflap into the property is always the first choice, but warm sheds or garages can be fitted with catflaps also!

There are also some areas which we simply cannot re-home to due to a high population of stray cats, dogs or if we know of cruelty in the area.

WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR OUTDOOR HOMES 

We are looking for stables, farms, small holdings or large gardens. The cats need a dry shed or stable or similar, if not secure we can loan cages to keep the cats safe for a couple of weeks then they can be released as by then they will know where their new home is.. You will need to feed the cats daily and be away from busy roads. If you can't offer such a home to these desperate cats please ask around. Thank you.

Some of the cats in our care may not yet be on our website. If you are looking for a feline companion, please contact us on 0345 1947 292
