Adopt a Cat

We are now only accepting cats and kittens who have been taken to the RSPCA’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital by RSPCA Inspectors or Collection Officers. Many have been ill-treated or severely neglected by their previous owners.

The branch is now sharing private boarding with RSPCA Stockport, East Cheshire and South Derbyshire Branch at Bowler’s Cattery, SK2 5HF and as a result their little cats and kittens are also appearing on this page.

TO ARRANGE TO MEET AND ADOPT ANY OF THE CATS OR KITTENS BELOW PLEASE TELEPHONE:0795 412 2481. Or, send us an email to [email protected] not forgetting to include your contact phone number. This number is ONLY FOR ADOPTIONS. The branch can now only accept cats and kittens rescued by our inspectors due to lack of funds and safe spaces to care for them.


We ask for an adoption fee of £60 for an adult cat and £70 for a kitten (cash please) to offset some of the costs we incur in caring for and treating the cats in our care, please contact us for terms for multiple adoptions or when adopting an elderly cat. When compared with the initial expense of essential welfare costs when obtaining a “free” kitten from a friend or neighbour, such as neutering, Blood tests, vaccinations and flea and worming treatment the estimated cost of which is now over £200, by adopting one of our animals you are saving money and…….more importantly a life. See our Adoption Process on the right hand column particularly the link to – Adopting a Cat from the branch for a full breakdown of costs.

To see more information and photos (if available) please just click on the “.. continue reading” link which will take you to each cat or kitten’s full information and photos then by clicking on their thumbnail photos you will be able to view larger images.

To see even more cats looking for homes please follow the “older posts” link at the foot of each page.


Mum to the 4 boys

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

mumtoboykittens This little black and white kitty is only just 1 year old but has raised her 4 little boys brilliantly despite her injured leg.

She is still undergoing a course of antibiotics but will be ready to join her new family next week.   Her sons are now fully weaned and also looking for new homes, but if you are out at work for several hours this little girl will be happy to just laze around until you come home.

Mum cat is looking forward to playing and enjoying life as she has missed out on her kittenhood whilst trying to survive on the streets.

If you could offer her caring new home she really deserves she can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

tabbyandwhite-kittens We have a litter of tabby and white semi-long-haired kittens.  They will need time to adjust to a living in a caring family home and become confident loving companions.  They are now 10 weeks old and ready to join the special humans.

They can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

Please check that they are still available by ringing or texting Elaine on 0776 451 4095 and see this link to our adoption policy for cats and kittens

Cleo – our longest stay kitty

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off
cleokitty2 Cleo came to the branch from a private vet as her owners had asked them to put her to sleep as they no longer wanted her.  As she was only 7 years old the vet asked us to find her a forever new home.

She can be temperamental and really doesn’t like being picked up which is why she has been with us since March this year.  However, she does like to be stroked and will sit with you when she’s confident that you don’t mean her any harm.

She will need some extra TLC and will make a lovely addition to an adult only family who are prepared to work with her and to gain her confidence.

She can be seen at Bowler’s cattery

Missy – Reserved

Posted in Adopt a Cat | Comments Off

missy-mummy-cat Missy who is little more than a kitten herself at between 12 and 18 months of age has successfully raised her lovely kittens who have all been reserved.  They will soon be going to live with their forever families but now Missy really needs to find that very special person to call her own.

Because Missy is past her kitten stage she can be rehomed where people are out at work for a few hours most days.  She will make a wonderful companion to one lucky family.

If you would like to meet our beautiful red-haired kitty and perhaps offer her a forever home with you please don’t hesitate to contact the branch.

Rags (still looking) and Ruby (rehomed)

Posted in Adopt a Cat, Monochrome Cats | Comments Off

ruby-cat Rags and Ruby are two sisters of about 1 year old.  Rags is a Domestic Semi Long Haired kitty and Ruby is short haired.  They don’t really get on well together and are looking for their very own families who will give one of these timid sisters a loving a patient home as they will need time to regain their confidence in humans.

If you can offer one of these little girls a forever home they’d love to meet you and they can be seen at Bowler’s Cattery

mano-cat-2 Mano came to the branch with a huge abscess which has been successfully drained and is now healed.  He is thought to be about 5 years of age and following his sad life up to now is still a very timid little boy.

If you would like to meet Mano and offer him a caring new home and once he’s gained in confidence lots of regular grooming to help his coat become shiny and beautiful once more please visit him at Bowler’s Cattery to discuss his needs with Stockport Branch and the cattery manager.
