Presenting adorable Izzy, our magnificent cat of the month.

Chats du Quercy is totally independent of any other structure.  Chats du Quercy approach cat welfare holistically and execute our work with excellence, which is why we believe that our work is unique in France –

  • We work strictly within the law
  • Our Adoption Centre is managed by our resident cat behaviourist
