Cat Currently Looking for Homes

Sooty is a black/ white female cat, currently being fostered in Kinross, she is an affectionate cat, but we do not know if she has ever been around young children. She is 7 years old. She has been in the Shelter since February and would love to be settled in a permanent home.

Beau is a magnificent large male cat, dark grey , who will be 12 in July. He has come into the Shelter through very sad circumstances. His owners had a house fire and are moving to rented accommodation, where no pets are allowed, so they have had to reluctantly give him into the Shelter for rehoming.

Flossie is 4 years old, a grey tortie , feeling very bewildered at the moment. She has come into the Shelter because of the death of her owner.

Gato is a very handsome black male cat 20 months old. He only has half a tail! His owner was moving abroad, so he came to us , initially very shy, but is being fostered and is now well settled and confident.

Charley is 2 years old , slightly fluffy, a wee bit bewildered by his change of surroundings , but will come round.

Garfield, a very handsome young male cat, estimated age 18 months.

Scrappy Doo is a very handsome 1 year old tabby boy, who came from the same household as Gizmo, Ninja and Ginge.

Gizmo , lovely 4 year old boy, he has been a much loved cat, but has come into the Shelter because of a change in the owner's circumstances.

Shadow is a friendly black male cat around 18 months. Has been accustomed to getting outside

Please phone between 9.30am and 7pm - Messages can be left on the answer machine after 7pm and will be replied to the following day, or in a case of urgency, if possible, replied to the same evening.

Please note, cats handed into the Shelter as strays are kept for 10 days and then rehomed if there is no evidence of ownership e.g. collar with name tag, or microchip, or if we are not contacted within that time by an owner. Because of the volume of requests to take in cats, we cannot keep cats for a longer time before finding new homes for them.

If owners wish us to take in their cat(s) for rehoming, there is a minimum donation fee of £10 which goes towards a veterinary check up and feeding the cat(s)

If you wish to offer a cat a home, please read the following:

There is a donation charge for neutered adult cats of £70  and the donation for a kitten is £60  - but please read further on the Kitten page

Please consider carefully before offering a cat/kitten a home, as veterinary costs can be high. For example, it costs approximately £75 to neuter a cat and any kitten homed by us must be neutered by its new owner at the appropriate time. Vaccinations, initially done at 9 then 12 weeks cost approx. £60 , and there is a booster then due every year of approx. half the first cost. It is therefore advisable to take out pet insurance. 

Unfortunately we cannot accept cats for re-homing which have serious health problems, as they are virtually impossible to re-home.

Stray and Lost / Missing Cats

Fife Cat Shelter recommends that you have your cat micro-chipped in case he/she goes missing.

Please read our Policy for Stray and Unidentified Cats.
