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.

nov 9thThis a timid little female kitten who is 12 weeks old and has a little brother who looks very similar to her but is a bit more outgoing. They were both born outdoors and have not had a great start to their little lives. They would love to find permanent homes where they can play and grow into beautiful cats. If you can give them a loving, permanent home please contact Virginia on 01642 556005.

This very gentle and quiet black female cat came to us with a litter of kittens. All of her kittens have now gone to loving homes so it’s now time to find one of her own. She has obviously had a challenging life so far so is a little timid but as said is also a very gentle and sweet lady who would most definitely flourish in a home where she can feel safe and secure. She looks a little unhappy in the photo but that is just because she is struggling to cope in the Cat Orphanage so please contact Virginia on 01642 556005 as soon as possible for more information.

This very handsome little tabby boy has recently recovered from a fractured leg which was caused by a kick from a very nasty person. However despite what has happened to him he is super friendly and loves cuddles and sitting on knees. He is so handsome too! He needs a loving new home to call his own where he can live for the rest of his life in safety. He is neutered and approx. 10 months old. Please contact Virginia on 01642 556005 if you would like to know more about this gorgeous young kitty.

He is currently living in the garden of a kind person who is taking care of him until he can find his own family and loving home. He is very friendly and loves to play and have cuddles. If you would like him to be a permanent part of your family this winter please contact Virginia on 01642 556005 for more information.

Img880601E0Img937A00C8These poor little kittens are the latest arrivals at the Cat Orphanage. Some have been abandoned and others born outside in gardens. They are all safe now but need permanent and loving homes. They are between 7 and 11 weeks old and there are both male and females. Please contact Virginia on 01642 556005 if you would like further information or feel you can give them the caring home they so deserve.


This beautiful little lady is currently living on a farm and having to steal her food from the pigs. She is about 2 years old and suddenly turned up at the farm in March of this year which is near Low Worsall. She was most likely dumped or could possibly have got lost. She is super friendly and very cute. She is approx. 2 years old and is desperately looking for a new permanent home. She has been neutered and because of her wonderful nature she would make an absolutely fantastic pet. Please contact Sylvia on 01642 780344 or Virginia on 01642 556005 for more information.
