AVON CAT RESCUE
Avon Cat Rescue has been caring for and rehoming unwanted or stray cats and kittens in Warwickshire and the West Midlands since the 1960’s. They always have many super cats waiting for a new home sometimes as many as 90 cats. They are an independent self funded not for profit organisation. If you cannot rescue a cat at this time you can help the cats in their care by joining their supporters group or sponsoring one of their resident ‘pensioner’ cats.

Considerations when Buying a Cat
Before you purchase a cat please ensure that you have thought carefully about the responsibility of cat ownership. Never buy a cat on impulse – cats often live to around twelve years of age but many cats much longer. Owning a cat is a commitment which should be carefully considered. Speak to your local veterinarian and other cat owners and gather as much information as you can to aid you in your decision.
The only accommodation a cat really needs in the house is a good bed which may be any comfortable chair box or basket. Igloos or beds can be purchased for your cat but quite often these are ignored and a spot on your bed or favourite chair is preferred.
If you decide that your cat will have access to outside ensure that a cat door is fitted to an external door of the house to enable access to the house at all times. Some cat doors are magnetically operated which allows your cat to enter the house but prevents the unwanted intrusion of other cats. The "modular park" cage system is an excellent and safe way for cats living in flats or near busy roads to be outdoors and have exercise.
