What should I do if I find a stray cat?
If you see a healthy, friendly cat that you think may be a stray, monitor it closely, make sure it is not sick or injured and contact your neighbours and other members of the community to see if the cat is owned. A neighbour may have a new cat, or someone new may have moved to the neighbourhood and their cat may be out exploring so please do not take it away from its location before exhausting all the options below.
Unfortunately, the National RSPCA doesn’t have the resources to collect healthy strays. If you would like advice please call our Branch on 0303 040 1565.
