Fife Cat Shelter

Cat Currently Looking for Homes

Rufus is a lovely big handsome boy, around 18 months old. We do not have any history on him as he was handed in as a stray. Nice gentle nature.

Buttons is a lovely small, slim female cat. She loves to play but has not had a good start in life. She was brought to the Shelter by the SSPCA, she had been found living rough, she had severe hair loss, due to an un treated flea allergy. She has been treated , neutered etc and now looks so much better. She deserves a fresh start in life where she can be loved and cared for. She is just a youngster we think, perhaps 18 months.

Lizzie is a delightful cat! Her kittens are now rehomed and she has been neutered ready for her new home. She is a very friendly cat, but initially very shy. We understand she had been kept as an indoor cat, and she does like an igloo or something similar to go to if she is startled. Once she gets to know you she will purr for ever, but a new owner must be aware that she is easily startled and should be prepared to give her time and patience, and she will make a wonderful pet. We do think she is best suited to remain an indoor cat.

Murdo is a big chunky black/ white male cat. Nice friendly cat who we estimate to be around 3 years old. He would like access to outside in his new home.


Sam is a very handsome ginger boy 8 years old. He seems a  nervous cat at times, and we wonder if he might settle as an indoor cat in a large house or flat. His previous owner found that if he went outside, he seemed wary about coming back inside, so perhaps best if he did not have to face the trauma of having to go outside. He needs a new owner who can give him time and patience, he is a lovely boy and deserves to find a home where he feels settled. He is extremely friendly.

Bobby is a very lively young cat. He would not suit a household with young children, as he gets over excited and will try to grab your hand. He needs a home where he can run off some of his energy, and where new owners will be patient with him and help him calm down.

Fife Cat Shelter was established as a registered Scottish charity at the start of 1993 and as with most charities it is run by volunteers, and is self-funding.

Many people ask why there is a need for organisations such as Fife Cat Shelter, and the sad truth is that the need is there because of the horrendous number of abandoned, stray cats.  We re-home on average, over 400 cats and kittens a year.  This does not include some old timers who are sometimes offered a home by one of our fosterers or supporters, or those cats who have to be put to sleep through illness or severe injury.

Please note that we do not deliver cats to new owners under any circumstance and that the donation for a neutered cat is £80, £120 for 2 cats and   £70 for a kitten and £110 for 2 kittens,  which is paid at the time of collecting the chosen cat.

Many of our cats are boarded at Causeway Cottage Cattery Scotlandwell , KY13 9JQ  we would recommend this Cattery to anyone , it offers the highest standard of cat care. 

Fife Cat Shelter cats always go to a vet for a health check before coming into the main Shelter. Causeway Cattery will NOT take in any cats on behalf of Fife Cat Shelter from anyone who just turns up at the Cattery with a stray or unwanted cat. Fife Cat Shelter cats are only accepted at the Cattery via agreement with a representative of Fife Cat Shelter, once it has been given a clean bill of health by a vet. All phone calls should be made to 01383 830 286 and not to Causway Cattery as this is a private business, where we pay to board cats. We are currently also boarding cats at Gairneybridge cattery , just outside Kelty, but same "rules" as above for Causeway Cattery.
Visitors to the Shelter are most welcome, but please phone 01383 830 286 to arrange a time before your visit. Thank you.
