CAT 1977's policy is to help feral cats by limiting their numbers through neutering and returning to site, and by finding homes for kittens and tame stray cats. The charity is totally against killing for expediency. The charity's motto is: "A lifeline for feral cats."

Cat Action Trust 1977 is a small national charity dedicated to the welfare of feral cats. We have an Executive Committee and 12 branches at: Aberdeen, Ayrshire, Bewdley, Central London, Doncaster, East Kilbride (Lanarkshire), Jersey, Leeds, Nuneaton and Hinckley, Shaw, South East London, Thame.

The charity is run entirely by volunteers, which means that the bare minimum is spent on administrative costs and almost all money donated is spent directly on the cats and their welfare.


These two rescued kittens and their four brothers and sisters were born in a garden in early Spring. Their mother, an abandonded domestic cat, was spayed by our charity and all found good homes. If left to breed, the mother could have had another two or more litters that year, a total of 12-18 kittens of her own; her female offspring would have started to breed themselves after they reached the age of six months.

Above and below: Just some of the many feral kittens helped by Cat Action Trust 1977.
