Established over 20 years ago, the Cat Orphanage is a  non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers aiming to improve the lives of felines in the north east.  Our work involves taking in stray and abandoned cats for re-homing, as well as educating owners and assisting with the cost of neutering.  We also work to help feral cat colonies in the area through a trap-neuter-release programme.

Below are just a few of the cats and kittens in our care,we are always looking for loving homes, also any donations to help take care of these needy felines are greatly appreciated.

Bramble is a female black cat who was rescued 4 years ago. Bramble is now looking for a new home as her elderly owner is in a home and no longer able to care for her. She is an indoor cat and sleeps quite a lot although she does go into the garden occasionally especially if it is sunny. She isn’t used to other cats so would suit a home without other cats. She is a healthy, very loving cat and is approx. 13 years old. She really does need a new home urgently and would be very grateful if you could kindly consider giving her one. She really is desperate. Please telephone Maureen on 01642 582849 or 07794567984 for more information.

Mary1 Mary is adorable and as Bob and JJ in the other advert, is desperately seeking a new home. She was also taken in by Bob and JJ’s owner a long time ago and now also has nowhere to go. She is very friendly and sweet, and loves a stroke. If you could kindly consider giving this lovely older lady a home, please contact Christine on 01642 710315 or Virginia on 01642 556005 as soon as possible. She really will make your home a happier place and you would make Mary a happy lady too.

These two kind and gentle cats were adopted as kittens and were loved and
cared for by their owner and her husband all of their lives.  Sadly their lovely owner has died and her devastated husband has now lost his home and no longer able to keep them. He has been trying to find them a new home but without any luck. Both of these boys are lovely friendly cats, and are vaccinated and neutered. It would be fantastic if we could find them a new home, ideally together. Please contact Christine on 01642 710315 or Virginia on 01642 556005 for more details.

received_10207210090682834This very pretty little female cat was found as a stray and is desperately looking for a permanent home.  She is nice natured and around 1-2 years old. She is neutered and ready to go to a new home where she will enjoy being loved and cared for. Please contact Virginia on 10642 556005 if you are able to give her the loving home she deserves.

Two of these 4 gorgeous kittens are sadly still looking for a kind and loving home. They were brought up by their mum in a garden and without any human contact. This has made them very timid but with lots of love and attention they will become lovely pets. They are getting more and more confident every day. If you have had cats before or are just keen to give these little bundles of fluff the chance they deserve please contact Virginia on 01642 556005. There is one black female and one black and white male (both neutered). We need to find them homes urgently as they are in cramped conditions due to lack of room at the cat orphanage. IMG_2672
