How you can help Cats’ Protection Tenerife 


THERE is a long-held misconception that cats need to be able to roam outdoors to be happy, but, with all the kitty luxuries available today, it makes the great outdoors just seem a little less … great.

Today’s indoor felines seemingly have it made. As an added bonus, indoor cats potentially have longer life spans, because they’re less likely to be exposed to cars, predators and some diseases than outdoor cats. You can enrich your indoor cats’ lives by giving them some space. Everyone needs a little spot to call their own, so you could create them a place that provides them with privacy. Many cats like to play, and every indoor cat should have lots of toys. If you’re a cat owner, chances are there are claw marks on something in your home. Cats love to scratch, so you could provide them with multiple scratching surfaces.

Make sure there’s a room with a view. Open the blinds on a few windows in your house, so your cat can observe the outdoor goings-on. Most importantly, be sure to treat your kitty to a lot of one-on-one time with you. Whether it’s playing, petting, grooming or just hanging out, your cat will be happy he’s spending time with you.


Please consider adopting a kitten/cat from us. All our cats awaiting adoption can be seen on our website at www.cats-welfare-tenerife.com/pets. Ring or Whatsapp Sharon on 6625 24006 (seven days a week 9-6pm), or Sandra (Spanish and German) after 6pm, on 6712 82773. Message us on Facebook, or contact us on our website www.cats-welfare-tenerife.com.

All kittens go on a week’s trial, in your home, so you can be sure you’ve made the right decision. If you adopt two kittens together, kitten injections, micro-chips and neutering is FREE for the second kitten. Adopt a black kitten, or two, and both kittens receive the above treatments, free of charge!

Foster carers needed

We do not have a refuge, so we urgently need people who are willing to foster kittens who are too young to be adopted, but need a safe place to stay until they are old enough to go to a forever home. Also, cats recovering from surgery, illness or injury need somewhere to recuperate.

We provide all the essentials for your foster cat: litter, food, litter tray, beds etc, and all veterinary bills are covered. We advertise and find them homes, so you do not need to do this. Please contact us if you feel you can help.

Our shop

We always need cat food, litter, old newspapers, sheets, towels, bedding etc for the cats and kittens in our care, and also good quality/condition items for sale in our shop.

Items in good condition can be dropped into the shop on San Blas, Golf del Sur (behind Hiperdino). It is open seven days a week, 10-6pm, Saturdays 10-4pm. If you don’t have transport, or have large, bulky items such as furniture and household effects to donate, please ring Mark on 636590557, and he will arrange collection from you.

Tiddles & Winks

Available to adopt this week from Yaiza vet, Los Cristianos (close by to the language school,) two very cute, friendly kittens.

Tiddles is mainly white and female, while Winks is black with a frosting of white and is male. They both have had their first kitten injection and love to play together so a home for both would be great, but they can be separated if you only want to adopt 1. All black kittens receive kitten injection, microchip and neutering FREE. PHOTO ID WILL BE REQUIRED TO ADOPT THESE KITTENS. All kittens are adopted with a week’s trial in your home.

Go along to see these cuddly two during the normal working hours or Contact Sharon whatsapp. 662524006.
