CATS NEEDING HOMES who have so far been OVERLOOKED...
All they need is a caring person to give them a chance, and they will surely blossom in a loving home of their own. Please consider adopting an overlooked cat - it could be the most rewarding thing you ever do!

Could you Foster?
Many shelters and rescue groups rely on volunteer fosterers to care for cats and kittens 'between homes'. Do you have some time and TLC to spare?
About Cat Fostering »

Indoor Cats
Want a cat, but live in a flat? Some cats can be better suited to the indoor life: Cats with F.I.V., deaf cats, blind cats, nervous or elderly cats, or simply cats who have previously been used to living indoors.

When Rescuing, please consider the most overlooked cats...

Senior Kittizens: Please consider rescuing an older cat, they are usually undemanding and need little or no house training! Many rescues operate a 'puss pension' scheme, whereby they will pay for unforseen vet bills, even after rehoming. Top 10 reasons to Adopt an Oldie!

Black, and Black & White Cats: Did you know black & white cats often get overlooked in favour of 'prettier' colours. All-black cats are also often passed by, even with their 'lucky' reputation. Give a black & white cat or a 'lucky black cat' a chance! Top 10 reasons to Adopt a Black Cat!

Cats with Health Issues: Cats with minor health problems find it harder to be rehomed, yet rescue centres will often pay for their vet bills even after rehoming.

Disabled Cats: Cats are very adaptable when coping with disability, yet are often overlooked because of it. A disabled cat has just as much love to give as any other cat. Could you Adopt a Disabled Cat?

Shy or Nervous Cats: Very shy cats often get overlooked, yet they can be the most loyal of pets once you have gained their trust. Winning round a nervous cat can be the most rewarding thing you ever do!

'Indoor Cats': Want a cat, but live in a flat? Although a cat's natural instinct is to go outside, some cats can be better suited to the indoor life: Cats with FIV, deaf cats, blind cats, very nervous cats or elderly cats, or simply cats who have previously been used to living indoors. Ask at your local Rescue Centre

Feral Cats: Each year, many rural-living cats find themselves homeless due to changes in land usage. All they require is regular food, somewhere warm & dry to sleep and veterinary attention when needed. In return you will get an efficient mouse-patrol! Ideal homes for feral cats are farms, smallholdings, stables etc. Find out more about Feral Cats.

Cat Fostering: Would you like to care for a cat, but don't want the lifelong responsibility that goes with it? Many rescues rely on cat foster homes to care for cats 'between homes' particularly in kitten season when many rescues are bursting to the seams. Could you be a cat fosterer? »» Find out about Cat Fostering

"I really am a most fortunate old cat!
This is because, being imaginary, I am never cold or hungry, and always have lots of friends to keep me company and look after me. So it worries me very much to realise that so many real, live, beautiful cats are left lonely, homeless and unloved, when I know that there are really plenty of people in the world who would be glad of their company and be happy to be their friends. That is why I would like to commend to you, my friends, this most feline website: www.catchat.org, where they will help you to find a cat-friend, if you are a person, or a person-friend, if you are a cat."
