In order to consolidate the internet presence of the Forest of Dean Cats Protection branch, we have decided to close down this site in June 2020, & operate through the main Cats Protection website.

Our Facebook page will remain open & we hope you will continue to support, follow & share…


Cats on this page are not currently in CP care. They are either on our waiting list or their owners would prefer to rehome them directly from their existing homes. Should you want to adopt one of these cats, we can give you the contact details of their owners. We must emphasise that these cats have not been through the health screening process applied to all cats in our care but we can arrange for this to be done if required.

Contact us on 01594 841511 for Homing Direct advice.



11/1/20 – Hello, my name is Heidi. I am 7 years old. I am a loving, friendly cat who loves the company of people. I love open spaces and am used to having fields to play in. I like catching mice, lazing in the sun, playing with my favourite toys and sleeping inside at night time. I love people and will wait for you to come home then follow you around for company. I love treats and will know where you keep them and ask for them by taking you to them. I’m very clever! My only imperfection is that I have bitten some people. I have an old injury on the back of my neck that if stroked may cause me to bite. I’m very sorry afterwards and don’t do it often but I’m probably best not adopted by people with young children. I do love being stroked. Sadly I am being put up for adoption because my family whom adore me have serious heath care problems that mean they can no longer look after me. (KW/SF)
