Bow Lodge Babies Cat Rescue - who we are

A Bit of Background

Bow Lodge started when 30 years ago Maria Revell took in a cat that was found in a house. The owners had moved away and left her with no food or water.  She needed a thyroid operation which Maria paid  for, then nursed her back to health and gave her a forever home. This cat was Bow and has resulted in Maria (Tilbury) taking in, neutering, caring for and finding new forever homes for over 500 cats/kittens a year since.

Maria has now retired and in her absence Laura and Sarah will be managing their areas. Both of these ladies have plenty of experience in doing so.

As our team self-fund at Bow Lodge we ask for a minimum adoption donation which is non refundable.  This just about covers the cost of us having the cats and kittens treated for fleas and worms and neutered/spayed. We also have to find money for food and litter and any additional vets bills.

Prospective owners are required to have an informal home check visit by us. It's important for us to ensure cats go to a loving, suitable new home, otherwise they are likely to end up back in a rescue centre. Currently there is a lack of neutering which poses a danger to cats everywhere, harming their health and resulting in unwanted kittens that could struggle to find homes in the future.

Bow Lodge promotes neutering.   There are organisations who can assist if you cannot afford to pay for the procedure. 



Please get in touch if you are thinking of adopting a Bow Lodge  cat or kitten

  • We always carry out a home check to make sure of a suitable environment

  • We charge a rehoming fee of £80.  This fee helps support our work, including the vet treatment  that  many of the cats and kittens who come into our care require, flea and worm treatment, food, micro-chipping, spaying and neutering  

  • Contact us for further information:

Spaying and Neutering

It is very important that you spay or neuter your cat.  Aside from the health benefits this will have for your cat, it will prevent unwanted litters of kittens.  We, and many other cat rescues, are bursting at the seams!  Please be a responsible owner.

The Blue Cross recommends that kittens are spayed or neutered at four months of age 

If you are struggling financially, and can't afford to pay the full cost, there are organisations who can help, such as the Blue Cross.
