Cat Currently Looking for Homes

Stella is 10 years old , black/ white female cat. She is currently successfully being fostered with a family and another cat. She , as far as we know, has not been accustomed to very young children, and she has been used to getting outside.

Diva is a 5 and a half year old female, nice quiet little cat . We are told that she is a shy cat but gets on with other cats .

Hobo came into the Shelter 3 weeks ago , he had a very badly swollen leg , which was examined, X rayed and treated. He has just had his check up and all is well with him. He is a nice boy, a wee bit wary, we think he has been on the road for some time, though he is not an old cat - maybe 2 years ? He loves to lie in his heated bed and would settle well back into a household , probably best suited to a quieter household to gain confidence. Hobo would not be suitable for a family with young children, he seems to be worried in case someone hits him. He is very much a cat who likes to be in the outside world and would not be suited as an indoor cat.

Sparky is a long haired male cat 6 years old, handed in as his owner could no longer look after him

Cuddles is a handsome black/ white boy, 7 years old. He is not confident in a household with very young children.

Donations: Fife Cat Shelter is registered with Virgin Money Giving to make it easier for our supporters to make donations and to help raise vital funds to keep the shelter running. When adopting a cat, please consider paying your donation through this service as it allows us to automatically reclaim tax through the Inland Revenue Gift Aid scheme.

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.

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.

However if you wish to see the cats at Causeway Cattery you must phone Rhona 01383 830286, and not the cattery directly.

Rhona will then arrange for you to visit the cats.
