Chats du Quercy is delighted to present to you the magnificent cats and kittens available for adoption in our Cat Adoption Centres in Sauveterre la Lemance (47) and 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 250€
We accept payment by card, cheque or cash.
Don’t forget that adopting from Chats du Quercy, and to help in tough times, you can pay the adoption fee in 5 monthly instalments, by cheque only. Your payment is a donation to the association and the work we carry out on a daily basis and has nothing to do with the actual expenses we have incurred, so it is deductible 66% against your French income taxes.
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 insist that 2 kittens are adopted together if you have no other cats. 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!!

The average cost to Chats du Quercy for each cat is 500€ – as an individual, this would cost you more than 800€.
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.
