Rescue And Rehoming Persian And Other Pedigree Cats
Please Read – Covid-19 Limitations
Unfortunately due to Covid-19 we have had to remove the phone number from our website as our volunteers are not able to take calls at this time. We will however continue to be contactable by email.
Before contacting us about adopting one of our cats please note as we cannot do homechecks due to corona, 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 most suitable for them and we will conduct home visits to confirm that you meet the criteria before proceeding with any adoption.
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 also 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 a charity 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 Cat 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for a form 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 6 (please read about us, also adoption process, etc. before applying). If you want to adopt, then please in the first instance email for a form to apply to adopt, rather than phone, (see email address above) as we do not have enough resource to cover the phone for most of the day and some days have too many messages to return.
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 cats 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.
