Welcome to the official website of Cats Protection's Exeter Axhayes Adoption Centre. As one of Cats Protection's 29 Adoption Centres across the UK, we are dedicated to finding good homes for cats in need as well as supporting and encouraging the neutering of cats and improving people’s understanding of cats and their care.
We here at Axhayes have around 150 cats and kittens in our care at the moment and more waiting to come in. We need more cat-loving people who could offer them a home. We are open every day from 11am-3pm, (Except Tuesdays when now closed) no appointment necessary, so come and meet our lovely cats today....
We get a lot of queries regarding stressed or upset cats that display unwanted behaviour in their homes.
We have attached a couple of links below provided by Cats Protection that might help. We know everyone wants the best for their cats and make sure they have tried everything before considering giving them up. It might be an interesting read for anyone with an existing cat or someone considering adopting one as well! If you have any questions you can always call us on 01395 232377.
This special scent (odourless to people and other animals) that Feliway utilizes is a replication of the pheromone that cats leave naturally when they are feeling comfortable in their environment. Even small changes in your home can upset your cat and prevent them from leaving this pheromone, which in turn makes them feel less secure, and increases their stress. http://www.feliway4cats.co.uk/
What do cats need? Understanding Feline Origin (UFO) is a free online course which will help you care for your cat`s basic needs by learning about its history and origins.
Cats Protection has produced a large number of helpful leaflets to help you care for your cat and provide up to date information on everything from Microchipping, Cat behaviour, Neutering, Toxoplasmosis, Veterinary guides etc etc. If you have any questions or issues then have a read of these!
Poppy is a sweet girl who was found straying around sunny Sidmouth. She is now looking for a home to call her own. She has been with us for a long time and we are struggling to find someone who will accept a lovely cat who likes affection on her own terms. She is finding the pen situation very hard which isn’t helping her sell herself to potential adopters. We are hoping to find someone lovely who will understand how hard it must be to be shut in a pen with people opening your door at random during the day, and not have any place to call your own! Please can you help Poppy!?
