Registered Charity No: 1063947 (England & Wales), SC041997 (Scotland). 

The Cat Action Trust was founded over forty years ago. We aim to help any cat however they come to us, whether they are stray, feral, hoarded, abandoned or lost. These are the forgotten cats that, without your help, wouldn’t receive the veterinary treatment, help and love they so badly need.

Our charity supports a network of enthusiastic volunteers across the UK who seek to improve the welfare of these “unnoticed” cats and in so doing they help save cats from a life of hunger, hardship and abuse.

All the cats that come into our care are neutered and given any veterinary treatment they may need. We are a non-euthanasia organisation and will only put a cat to sleep if they are terminally ill and suffering; or so badly injured that they could not survive.

As well as helping lost, stray and abandoned domestic cats we also trap, neuter and return feral cats to places where we know they will be fed, cared for and given a warm and comfy place to sleep. Feral kittens are socialised and rehomed in a domestic setting wherever possible.

We see and treat some terrible injuries and believe every cat and kitten deserves a chance to be healthy and cared for, preferably with a comfy lap to sit on.
