The Cats Protection League is a registered charity dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming stray cats and abandoned cats and kittens.

In addition to cat rescue and rehoming, Cats Protection League provides a range of services to the public, including our Feline Fix desexing program which provides financial assistance for desexing. We also offer discounted worm and flea treatments, help with veterinary costs, cat food, cage and trap hire. Click here to view our services for Canterbury cat owners.

Featured Cats For Adoption

Toluk

Toluk is about 11 years old and came into CPL care when her owner moved to a new apartment where pets are not allowed.  This is her second time with CPL, she was adopted from us in 2012 (and was called Precious then).

Toluk is friendly and confident with a little bit of “tortitude” and will suit a quiet adult home. Her unusual name comes from a type of currency made from turtle shell.

Adopting an older cat can be very rewarding and they make great companions. As they are less active they tend to spend more time indoors and are less likely to get lost or injured. They are particularly suitable for owners who are themselves less active and/or spend most of their time at home.

Toluk

Tia

Tia is about 3 years old and came into CPL care as a stray with her kitten Tank (already adopted).

Tia is friendly and full of energy but is not a cuddler at this stage.  She will best suit a home where she can get lots of individual attention as she is a bit of a pocket rocket!

Sam

Sam is about 8 years old and was originally surrendered to CPL with his sister Pippy when their owner went into care.  The two cats were adopted together but Sam has been returned due to stress-related toileting issues.

Sam is a gentle, shy boy who enjoys company and is missing his sister.  He is easily startled and not keen on loud noises.  He will be best as an only pet and will suit a quiet home and patient new owner.

Sam is on a special diet to reduce his stress levels and this will need to be continued in his new home.
