Rescue And Rehoming Persian And Other Pedigree Cats

If you are enquiring to adopt please use the form on this page, or send us an email HERE. Alternatively, you can send us a message on our FACEBOOK PAGE.

Before contacting us about adopting one of our cats please note that you must be able to provide previous vet records for cats you have had in your name previously or currently have, this with the form and photos of your home replace the homecheck, read more about the adoption criteria HERE, we have a duty of care to the cats under our protection to ensure that they will go to the home most suitable for them.

We only rehome INDOOR-ONLY cats, this means no letting them out into a garden or balcony (in doing so we hope that they will avoid being stolen, run over, catching illnesses like FELV/FIV etc.). They have never previously been allowed outside.

We do not home where children under 8 are present, now or in the possible future. The reason we stipulate this is most of our cats have come from homes where children or babies where present and it was causing the animals distress being in that environment.

Strawberry Persian and Pedigree Cat Rescue is an entirely voluntary organisation that helps rescue and rehome any pedigree-looking cat. We are a specialist rescue with cats in foster homes being cared for and loved in that home, not in a huge rescue centre or a cattery.   We have take in and rehome cats from all over England and Wales. We are all unpaid volunteers and we cannot continue our work without your help, by donating, fostering and adopting from Strawberry. Cats Available are under the Our Cats tab above.

We are all unpaid part time volunteers with a passion to help pedigree-looking cats in need of vet care or a new home. We help many cats we are told other rescues have refused to help. If you want to give up a pedigree cat please email for a form or download one here, and look at our procedure above on Giving Up Your Cat tab.

The adoption fees for the young cats help our work with the old, disabled or cats needing vet care/surgery. Please note we rehome mainly indoor only cats and not with children under 8 (please read About Us, also adoption process, etc. before applying). If you want to adopt, then please download a form to apply to adopt here, or email for a form (see email address above). Do not phone us regarding adoption, as the number is strictly for people who need to give up cats in an emergency. Your call could prevent a cat getting urgent help.

All cats from Strawberry rescue are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and wormed, groomed, and claws trimmed if appropriate or possible. Also, if our vet feels is needed before rehome, blood tests, dentals, etc.  All cats come with 5 weeks’ free insurance plus bed or scratch pad, toys and litter tray.  You also get adoption and integration support. Cats must come back to us at any time in their lives if you cannot keep them.

You cannot adopt and travel by public transport with a cat you have to find someone to give you a lift home with the cat in a secure cat carrier. Most cats are in foster in Greater London, Essex, Central London, Worcestershire (near Worcester/Birmingham areas), Oswestry (North Wales border near Cheshire and Wirral), Durham/Newcastle upon Tyne area (NE of England). Look at each cat’s listing to see location.

We help all breeds of pedigree cat including Persians, Persian Exotics, Maine Coons, Ragdolls, Birmans, Burmese, Devon Rex, Siberian, Turkish Angora, Nebulong, Siamese,  Selkirk Rex,  Sphynx, Tonkinese, British Blue and other colours of British Shorthair, Russian Blue, Orientals (but we do not take or place Bengal cats). We like cats in our care to be in foster homes not cattery facilities.  If you are looking for a kitten of a specific breed, we do not run a waiting list for these – as we are not breeders and do not always have kittens of any breed never mind kittens of all breeds listed above!   IF WE HAVE KITTENS THEY WILL BE LISTED ON OUR CATS AVAILABLE PAGE (do not phone us for kittens) AND THEY WILL BE NEUTERED AND VACCINATED BEFORE REHOME.  WE WILL NOT REHOME A KITTEN NOT NEUTERED.

We have a wishlist on Amazon for items which we always need to help the cats in our care and to ensure they have a good start with in their new homes. If you would like to see what we desperately need, please take a look HERE
