Cats In Distress is a registered charity founded in May 2016. The Charity is run by three trustees, who together with a team of dedicated animal loving volunteers help domestic, stray and feral cats. Our experience with other rescue & welfare organisations has led us to believe “there’s always something more that can be done”. 

Our mission is to relieve the suffering of cats & kittens in need of care & attention, by providing compassion, protection, treatment and security.

We are totally independent and run entirely by unpaid trustees & volunteers, we receive no money from lottery funding and no support from any of the big animal charities.


We rely solely on donations & our own fundraising activites


 All our cats & kittens are health checked, neutered, vaccinated, & microchipped before being rehomed. In addition, we are delighted to be partnered with Agria Pet Insurance and therefore able to provide 5 weeks free pet insurance, no matter what age of cat.

UK Law Duty of Care   

DID YOU KNOW - Every cat, whether it’s a companion animal or a very frightened farm cat, is covered by exactly the same legislation; the 2006 Animal Welfare Act.


This means that any cat owner has a Duty of Care to provide the same appropriate warm shelter, nutrition, veterinary care and protection from harm. The government has issued a Code of Practice that applies to all cats. The purpose of the Code is to provide practical guidance to help owners comply with the provisions of Section 9 of the Act.
