We purchased our gorgeous Beatrice from here. She wasn’t there for long but they definitely knew a lot about her. Not just the medical side but her personality. It’s lovely to know they take the time to really get to know the cats that go there. (May, 2023)

We adopted our Mia from CPS in 2019 and love her dearly. I now volunteer at the society as a way to give back and support the team in their mission to improve cats’ lives. Thank you CPS for the critical work you do! (May, 2021)

I adopted my Mochi (formerly known as Magic at the centre) here on Thursday!! All the staff were super super nice and you could see they all loved cats fron the way they spoke. You get to spend time with your potential cat/kitten in a playroom to see if they are the right one for you. Mochi is sooo cute and thriving! I hope to go back next year for my second kitty (April, 2023)

Lovely people and amazing little furbaby from them. Products cost same if not less than major pet stores. They were so supportive too. We can’t be happier with our beautiful pumpkin. What a gem !!! They love updates and really care about the cats there. Very humbling experience and very grateful to the wonderful staff. Thank you. (May, 2023)

All of my cats have been rescued from the Cat Protection Society. People here, clearly all cat fans, do a wonderful job of taking care of these cats & kittens. Concerned and caring staff ensure these often lost or abandoned felines find new homes with responsible and loving carers.

With a new, state of the art facility – I’m talking cat condominiums, kitty meet and greet room, access to outdoor run, experienced vet consultations and a well stocked shop for all your cat supplies – this is a perfect place to visit to adopt a new furry cat friend.

The welfare of cats is their No. 1 priority. Highly recommended! (March, 2024)

Such an impressive facility/shelter housing kittens and cats waiting to go to their forever home. On-site veterinary clinic that specialises in felines, little cafe and all the goodies your furry friend could want and need. Super helpful and informative staff. Parking on-site. I was fortunate that an absolute sweetheart kitten chose me to come home with and I adore him; he’s a little mummies boy. I consider myself very blessed indeed that Charlie is part of my life (January, 2024)
