Cat Chat's Policy on Cats from Overseas

Cat Chat does not encourage the adoption of cats from abroad. Therefore we are unable to assist rescue organisations based abroad, or organisations and fosterers based in the UK, who are importing cats.

However, in exceptional circumstances, we are sometimes able to help find a home for individual cats that have been brought to the UK from abroad.  We consider such requests on a case-by-case basis.
