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.

Annie's kittens

New Cats Comments Off

Annie who is featured on the website separately had a litter of kittens on her own. She had 5 timid babies and there are 2 left. There is one black female and one black male. They are about 8 weeks old. They are very timid and frightened of humans but are slowly coming round. This is because they did not have any human contact when they were born as Annie hid them away somewhere safe and brought them up on her own, poor thing. With the right amount of love and care they will make wonderful pets and the black male is so handsome (he has some tiger stripes in his coat) and the black female is such a pretty little girl. If you have experience of kittens and would like to give one of these cuties a loving permanent home please contact Virginia on tel 01642 556005 for more information.




Annie was abandoned and cruelly left to fend for herself when her owners were evicted earlier this year. Some kind and compassionate people have been taking care of her since. The poor young lady has also recently brought up a litter of kittens close to the garden she has been living in. She was very shy and nervous when she first turned up however since she has been shown love and care she is now much more friendly and adores having her chin rubbed. As you can see she is also such a pretty little cat. If you could give her a permanent and loving home please contact Virginia for more information on 01642 556005.
