Every year Trafford branch takes in many rescue cats and kittens. These cats need new homes for many reasons. Some have been abandoned, are strays or their owners may have had to give them up for a variety of reasons. Our foster homes are ALWAYS
full which gives you an indication of how important it is to continue our neutering/spaying campaign and finding the right home for all our cats. Whether a new kitten or a cat in their twilight years it is our commitment to find the right home they all truly deserve.
Trafford Cats Protection covers the following areas:
WA13, WA14, WA15, M16, M17, M31, M32, M33, M41
We are a small branch with complete dedication to the many cats and kittens that come into our care – nothing is too much to get them healthy and find the right home for each one.
Whilst in our care, we get to know their characters and any foibles or bad habits they have.
Once all is known we can see what sort of home, and people, will make the feline happy and contented.
A happy cat ensures happy owners!
On home visits, good photos and descriptions of cats’ dispositions are given. Most people are then happy to give the chosen one a home on that information.
Potential adoptees occasionally may like to visit the cat after the home visit, and we are sure they are serious they are welcome to come and view their expected new love.
Our way works well for us, and it is rare any come back, usually through death or illness.
We do have to disappoint some people who get in touch for kittens or juveniles, as on visits the roads nearby and the traffic are noted.
We do try to limit the risk factor because so many juveniles and young cats are hit by cars usually fatally.
It is a disappointment, but some people listen to our advice and give homes to those more suitable to their environment, and hopefully long contented lives.
If you would like a cat, it is helpful to us, if you leave your details, including postcode and a landline phone number and someone will contact you if we can help. (Being able to make contact by landline means that the branch avoids expensive mobile phone costs......leaving funds available to help more cats and kittens.)
Please Note: This branch is run by volunteers, please be patient we will get back to you as soon as possible if we can help.
Can I have a home with you?
We hope to update these pages as often as possible with more photographs. However we cannot guarantee that the cats featured have not been adopted by the time you contact us but we can guarantee we will have many cats who would love a new home.
If you would like to offer a home to a cat(s) or kitten(s) please ring our Homing Officer at Trafford Cats Protection on 0161 610 2189 (Answerphone). It would be helpful to us if you leave your details including postcode and a landline phone number.
