All of our cats deserve loving homes


We have all ages, colours and sizes of cats in our Tŷ-Nant sanctuary, and all of them deserve to have a safe, loving, forever home.

We have many beautiful and affectionate older cats, which are often overlooked in favour of kittens, but who are already toilet trained, calm and ready to be loving, and loved.

We also have our fair share of the difficult cats, who have been mistreated and are less trusting, but with time and patience, they will reward you with their love and affection.

Every cat up for adoption is health checked, and spayed / neutered (or this will be arranged as part of the adoption).

We want to be sure that our cats are going to loving, safe, homes, so we ask some questions about you and the environment you are offering our cats.


Our adoption fee is £60 for an adult cat that covers neuter, microchip, health check and vaccinations and all our kittens will be with us for 9 weeks going forward and will receive their health check and vaccination and will be £55. Our cats/kittens can only be reserved in person and on full payment.  Any deposits made on a kitten/cat are NON REFUNDABLE.

In 2018 we were able to help over 200 cats and kittens find their forever home. We regularly receive heartwarming updates from our lovely cats, and their new families.


We never put our cats to sleep unless they are in pain and cannot be treated. We have some cats that have been living in Tŷ-Nant for over ten years, and we are still hopeful of a forever home for them.


We love our FIV cats. Many other places will have an FIV cat put to sleep, as they can't live outdoors due to their low immune system. However, we have had a very successful adoption rate including Big Joe who was our Tŷ-Nant FIV Ambassador, who has now found his forever family.

Why not contact us to ask about adopting our lovely cats, or to ask about what it involves.


If you are unable to rehome a cat, but would still like to have a cat of your own, why not sponsor one of our Tŷ-Nant cats?

Or if you'd like to be more hands on, why not volunteer to help us with our cats?


😎Meet Francis and Benjamin, although they only let their mother call them that so it’s Franky and Benny to everyone else.

😸They are two majorly cool cats who came to us with ingrowing eyelashes. After a couple of facelifts, sorry eyelid surgeries, they now have perfect, beautiful eyes and are ready to share the love. They’re open to applications from homes that would be prepared to worship the ground they walk on and provide them with lots of scrumptious food and plenty of safe outdoor space for them to pretend they’re Bear Grills and practice their survival skills or tree climbing and grass nibbling to us regular folk!

If you would like to spend 10 minutes in their company and make your pitch for them to come and honour your home with their residency then please get in touch. 



This younger boy came in with Sweetie, Dolly and Noodle as well as 2 others from a group of 6 all from the same owner who had sadly passed away. Like them he is still nervous of his new surroundings and needs a quiet home to continue to regain his confidence. Please message us if interested in Adam for more information.



This 3-4 year old lady is usually tucked up in the same cat bed as her friend dolly. Still shy but will let you stroke her. A quieter home needed to allow her to relax and become a much loved member of the family. please contact us for more information.



This older tabby boy is around 10 years of age maybe more and was handed into a vets as a stray, he is a quiet cat and would like to live in a single cat household. he has a heart murmer but no treatment is needed for this, he has recently had a dental and had all of his teeth out and he has recovered nicely.  Please message us if you could offer this lovely boy a home for his remaining time.


Kat is an older lady, looking for a quiet retirement home, with a warm spot to spend her time, that could be a lap, a windowsill or just a sunny spot on the carpet. She loves whiskas and cuddles. If you have a place in your home for our precious little girl. Please get in touch.

Megan and Jake

Megan is a beautiful 3 yr old female calico cat and Jake is a lovely white/black 3 yr old female cat, despite her name! They came to Ty Nant separately as strays and have been waiting a very long time for a home ever since. Megan and Jake have formed a very strong bond with each other and each of them is a little more confident when the other is around; for this reason they must be homed together. 
Megan and Jake are both very nervous cats but can be tempted out of their hiding places for a little piece of chicken or ham 😊. Given the chance, they have the potential to be socialised into loving and affectionate cats. They need an owner who is prepared to invest the time and patience needed to coax them out of hiding away and to get used to people. This very special person will be well rewarded with two beautiful, loving cats.



This little lady is Jinx. She has been with us a while and is a little scared to start with but likes a stroke and once she learns that you’re friendly she will let you stroke her. She loves treats and chicken 😺She would need a quiet home with a patient loving owner who could teach her to be herself again.

If you would like to meet her please come along on a Sunday between 12 and 2 or get in touch.

Patch - neck scratches in the sunshine! What more could a cat want? But a home of his own.   more info to follow on Patch


This handsome little man is Joey! He’s absolutely adorable. 
He is currently in foster in Pontypridd but is chasing the other cats away. He needs to be an only cat in a home with no children or older children. Away from busy roads as he has an old injury that doesn’t stop him climbing cat trees and fences but safer if he had s nice enclosed garden to explore. He does have a heart murmur so needs a peaceful life really, no late night parties or overdoing it. 
If you would like to arrange to meet him, get in touch and we will put you in touch with his foster mama. 



Looking for a very special forever home for our Merlin


Merlin has had long term issues with his stomach which has only been cured through feeding him a raw diet and holistic supplements. We tried a lot of other medication that didn’t have the effect that the raw diet did. Once a cat is on a raw diet they have to stick to raw only so having him at the sanctuary would be difficult as we couldn’t guarantee he didn’t eat other cats biscuits or food. He is currently in a foster home, he keeps himself to himself and is very submissive to other cats. 

He is absolutely lovely but needs a bit of love and attention to bring him out of his shell. 

If you are able to offer Merlin a raw fed home please get in touch.

Molly Moo

How pretty is Molly? She is a loving sweet little cat, 15 years young! Doesn’t look it at all does she. She says her secret to her youthful looks is a good daily cleansing routine and an oily fish diet. She has lovely thick fur and beautiful eyes as a result. Come and meet her, she is a great listener and lap warmer.


This handsome chap is Yogi. 
He has been with us a while now. He is being treated for IBD so has to have a steroid every day. We would cover this cost. 
He gets on ok with the other cats in his room but is definitely the boss man. 
If you would like to meet him with a view to offering him a stress free home please get in touch.
