Boudicca - thanks for that. Petts wood quite a distance from us but if have no luck locally will def come back to you.

Cats Protection League as well?

We went to Battersea Dogs Home to try and find a cat a few years ago. Ended up going home empty handed but it was a surreal experience. You get interviewed to find out if you are "suitable" to own a cat. All very friendly but it is definitely an interview!

Maybe I should pretend Im childless. My two DS are lovely but might appear slightly on the 'over enthusiastic' side.

kizzie, both the Cat Protection League and Battersea Cats Home were fine about us having a toddler. There were certain "nervous" cats they would not allow us to have but other than that they were okay. I am not sure if it helped that we had had a cat before so I could say that dd was used to animals and respected them etc etc.

I have been told that most of the time the Cats Protection League people do a home visit to ensure that your house is appropriate for an animal. And I also seem to recall they say no to anyone living in a flat, whatever their circumstances but this could have changed.

Cats Protection was who I was looking for because thats who my sister got her cat through in other part of country - but doesnt seem to be one anywhere near us. Going to have a potter round websites this afternoon and see if I can arrange to go and see someone.

Here is a link to cats protection website, and then you can look for branches in your area.
