Click on the cat photos to see individual details and – Please help them! We have everything you need to welcome your new companion cat, on sale at our Adoption Centre (Carry baskets, litter trays, toys etc)
We have decided, in conjunction with World animal day, and to help encourage adoptions of the many gorgeous abandoned cats and kittens that we have waiting for their forever families, that for the month of October, our adoption fee will be reduced to a minimum donation of 150€
All of our cats are tested for FIV/FeLV, sterilised (from 2 months of age) vaccinated and identified, so that when you adopt you have nothing else to do except give love and good care.
To visit the cats available for adoption you need to be ready to adopt, the day you visit should be the day you adopt and as it is not possible that you pass through to visit all the cats, we need to know which cat you are interested in and we guarantee that the cat will be here for you to visit. Appointments can be made up to 5 days in advance.
Chats du Quercy is delighted to present to you the magnificent cats and kittens available for adoption in our Cat Adoption Centre in Miramont de Quercy(82).
Before finding new homes our cats are assessed daily by our cat behaviourist and receive weekly visits by our vet. They are also;
- Sterilised from 2 months of age
- Identified by microchip(a legal obligation in France)
- Treated for parasites
- Tested FIV/FeLV
Any donation you give is eligible for a 66% deduction on your French income tax
Our adoption fee is just 240€
We accept payment by card, cheque or cash

Your guide to adopting a cat from Chats du Quercy during confinement

As always, for more information don’t hesitate to call us on 0563947397, our gorgeous abandoned cats are waiting for you.
You should understand that kittens take a lot of looking after, whereas an older cat, even a young adult, will be much more calm and easier to integrate, especially if you work all day or have no other animals. At Chats du Quercy we always encourage 2 kittens to be adopted together.
Kittens before the age of 15/16 weeks need the company of other cats, and the education this gives. Quite often, kittens raised only with human company develop behaviour problems as they know no limits between species. These cats are the most often abandoned and the most difficult to place.
Chats du Quercy Adoption Centre is open by appointment during weekends, holidays and of course, during the week.
We now have a youtube channel “Chats du Quercy” where you can see videos of some of the cats in our care –
All of our kittens and cats are sterilised (from 2 months of age), vaccinated and microchipped(a legal obligation in France) before they leave us for their forever homes – just purrfect!!

Did you know that running Chats du Quercy Rescue Centre costs on average 10500€ per month?
The average cost to Chats du Quercy for each cat is 450€ – as an individual, this would cost you more than 600€.
Adoption fees serve a good purpose. The fees you pay to adopt are used in part to offset costs of caring, as well as the cost of vaccination, sterilisation, identification, etc. Perhaps most importantly, adoption fees serve as a screening measure, designed to weed out would-be cat owners who are unwilling or unable to spend money on their pets. Someone who can’t spend on cat adoption fees is also unlikely to be able to pay for routine veterinary care or even food.
