Cats in distress

What We Do

Cats In Distress is a cat welfare charity based in Frome, Somerset. We tend to operate in Bath, Frome, Bradford-On-Avon, Trowbridge, Westbury, Warminster and surrounding areas, but we will take in any cat regardless of the area it comes from.


We are dedicated to the rescue, care, and rehoming of cats and kittens whether domestic, stray, injured, abandoned, feral or mistreated. If we can help, we will.

Established in 2016, we've helped over 1500 cats, and we now help in excess of 300 cats per year.

If we have the space, we will not turn any cat away.

'Ginny has really helped me and my kitty out. I’m broke, young and just trying to keep a cat off the streets and let her know she has a home. Every bit of care was free while she was with Ginny, including all her injections, neutering and chipping! Thank you, Ginny, you're a star.' RR
