Cats

For more information on the cats, please phone our adoption number 07867 972 870. Please call before travelling as our cats are in a private boading establishment.

Please see the Adoption page for details of our Adoption Policy.

We have other cats that will be ready for homes shortly, with many currently recovering from injury or illness. Please call us for more information. Not all of our cats are on the website.

We expect our cats to have access to a garden or some form of outside space for their welfare. Cats that are suitable to live as an inoor cat will be noted as such. See rehoming page for criteria.

Our cats are housed at Broadland Cattery, Brick Kiln Lane (aka Goose Lane), Ingham, Near Stalham, NR12 9SY or with fosterers in the Great Yarmouth area. Please call to make an appointment to view on 07867 972870 before travelling.

All our cats are neutered, microchipped, vet checked and vaccinated with Feligen RCP against calicivirus, rhinotrachetis and panleucopenia, you may want to also get your cat vaccinated against feline leukaemia which is available at your vets. They are also up to date with flea and worm treatments and also come with 4 weeks pet insurance – T&C’s apply.

For more information on any of these cats please phone our Adoption Line on 07867 972870 or email animals@rspcaeastnorfolk.org.uk

Please note all animals brought to us as injured strays are held for a minimum of 7 days or until they are fit and well. During this time they will receive veterinary attention as necessary. This is deemed adequate time for an owner to come forward. If after this time no one has claimed the cat we will set the rehoming process in motion and look to find the cat a new loving home. Cats are never rehomed back to the area where they were originally found.

If the cat is returned to the original owner we would hope that they would contribute to the cost of the care for their animal.

If we are able to take in your cat for rehoming and it is not neutered and vaccinated we would expect a donation to help towards the costs involved in getting them ready for rehoming. Our prioroty is sick and injured although we will help where we can with space and funds permitting.

If you have lost your cat please make urgent steps to try to locate them. Please call all the vets in your local area, and also notify us at the branch on 07927 000466 also register on pets located. To alleviate this problem and to ensure your cat is returned safely to you as quickly as possible, please get them microchipped – We are happy to do this for a small fee to cover the cost of the chip. A microchip is the first thing that is checked by vets and other animal welfare organisations, this also helps us re-unite lost animals and helps to keep the costs down to all the local charities. So please get them microchipped, it only takes a few minutes.

When rehoming kittens we would expect them to be kept indoors until they are 5-6 months of age. All our kittens will be neutered before being rehomed where possible. Neutering will be carried out at 12-16 weeks of age where possible. Kittens can become sexually active very young and certainly before 16 weeks.

All our cats would like access to outside space unless clearly stated an indoor home is required. Cats with FIV, blind, deaf or have other medical conditions will need an indoor home. 

We do not recommend kittens are rehomed with small children, as they can easily become injured. However, we will look at it on an individual basis and how the child and animal are supervised.

Adoption fee for cats and kittens is £60. This in no way covers the costs incurred by the branch. Extra donations are most welcome.
