​About Cat Watch


In August 2019 Cat Watch Rescue Shelter (CWRS) was founded by Marnie Buckland and has, to date, rescued and re-homed or reunited over 300 cats and kittens. 


CWRS believe that all cats deserve a warm, safe home and all the love and affection in the world.  In addition to helping owners with cats they can no longer care for, we rescue cats who have been abandoned, are stray or feral and through our network of volunteers and fosterers, provide a safe environment and offer the opportunity for rehabilitation, including veterinary care when needed, neutering and microchipping.


CWRS is available all year round and is 100% focused on the well being of our feline friends and will never turn away a cat in need and will do whatever it takes to ensure they receive the love and attention every cat deserves.

CWRS are now halfway through the iCatCare Unowned Cats course with a view to becoming a Gold Standard Cat Friendly Homing Centre.

First of all I would like to thank everyone involved with Cat Watch Rescue, from the fosterers and volunteers to the adopters who give all the deserving fur babies, loving forever homes.

Cats in the UK are not the only ones to suffer and need loving homes, so Cat Watch works closely with our friends in Romania to bring cats across to the UK for adoption. Unfortunately, these poor fur babies are not immune to the effects of Brexit, which has seen the cost of bringing each one from Romania, increase to £270. Whilst the charity has borne the cost of this increase for some time now, it is no longer financially viable and so, as a result, we have had to make the difficult decision to increase the adoption fee to £300, for cats brought over from Romania. The charity makes no financial gain from this adoption fee, as per DEFRA regs they have to stay in rescue for 48 hours and there are further costs for the feeding, vet check etc, prior to rehoming.

Please be assured that we have not taken this decision lightly and it was made after a lot of soul searching and consideration of the potential negative impact on the number of cats that we may be able to rehome. We also understand that, in the current climate this increase may be unaffordable but would say that this is a relative drop in the ocean compared to the years of love and affection that these fur babies give.

We hope you understand the reason for this increase and thank you in advance. Xx
