Application to adopt a Cat

Please note that when you forward this application it will be held by our Customer Services staff for 1 month.

This application does not reserve a specific cat.

Don't get caught in the rush!  Many people arrive just before 3pm hoping to see the cats - come early and give yourself the best opportunity of seeing the cat of your choice

Adoption Fees

Average costs incurred by Raystede for each Cat/Kitten are more than £400, but adoption fees are currently:

  • Cats over 8 years - £60
  • Cats 7 months - 7 years - £90
  • Kitten (up to and including 6 months) - £110

You are always welcome to add a donation, which would help future rescue cats, especially if you gift aid it (so it costs you no more but we get an extra 25% if you are a UK taxpayer).
