A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not. Ernest Hemingway

Featured Pet of the Month:

Look who is our Pet Of The Month. Peanut is a handsome orange male who is approximately 1 and a half years old. He came to us from a hoarding situation in Bridgeport. Peanut is a sweet, gentle guy but is a very nervous cat. He is on a special diet dry food and cannot eat any canned food. The perfect home for him will be a quiet, patient one with another cat and no small children. Do you or someone you know have room in your heart and home for this striking, loving guy? For more information, call (203) 375-7009.

Cat Tips: A Blood Test Can Detect Illness Early

Many vets recommend that even healthy senior cats have a periodic blood test. Cats rarely show symptoms of problems like renal failure until their kidney function is almost gone, but if the signs of kidney failure are detected early, the illness can be treated early. Although there's no cure for most elder kitty illnesses, if you're able to find the problem before it shows, you can improve your cat's quality of life in the long term.

Stratford Cat Project, Inc. (SCP) is a federally recognized, non-profit organization. We are a group of residents concerned about the feral cat population and dedicated to rescuing the homeless and abandoned cats of Stratford. SCP is an all volunteer organization. We are not a shelter. All the cats that we help are fostered in our homes. We are presently operating solely on private donations and fund-raising. All proceeds and donations go directly to help Stratford cats.


Volunteers Needed: Love cats? Have free time? Want to help? The Stratford Cat Project is always in need of volunteers. Fostering, helping out at fundraising events and adoptions and soliciting donations are just some of the ways you can participate. Please call us at 203-375-7009 if you are interested in helping our feline friends.


There is so much joy in knowing you have helped us save some kittens or adult cats in need as you help them get ready for their forever home. We furnish all supplies needed to care for our cats/kittens and provide a support system. Our adoptable kitties numbers are always growing, and it is sometimes necessary to turn strays away as our current foster homes become overcrowded. Please, if you can help, or if you know someone who can help, call 203-375-7009 today.

Our Wish List

URGENT: We presently have 51 cats that we are housing. We are always in need of food and litter. While our foster home number is lower we also have a food bank that provides food to families that cannot afford to feed their pets and helps caretakers of feral cat colonies. If you can make a donation, please call us at (203) 375-7009. Also, donations can be dropped off at 85 Champion Terrace, Stratford (on back patio) weather permitting.
Another way you can help - Please save all your cat food and litter coupons for us. Also, we save the PAW Points from Fresh Step Litter and redeem for coupons for free litter. Coupons and PAW Points can be mailed to: Stratford Cat Project, P.O. Box 1261, Stratford, 06615 or can be dropped off at any of our events.
Supply Donations Always Needed: We are in need of Friskies canned and dry food, wet wipes, trash bags 4, 8 and 13 gallons size, cat condos, litter, stamps, Walmart gift cards, bleach, scratching posts, rugs for cages, small plastic bags and paper towels.


Want to help but don't have time to volunteer or foster? How about sponsoring a cat? A sponsor is someone who is willing to make a monthly donation for the care of one of our long term feline friends. As we all know, kittens are easy to find homes for. Sometimes it takes much longer to find a home for the adult ones. A sponsor will receive a picture of the cat they sponsor and are always welcome to visit. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please call Karin at 375-7009.


We do require that an adoption application and agreement be filled out. There is an adoption fee of $125.00 for adult cat (1 year and up) and $150.00 for kitten (up to 11 months) All of our cats (adult or kitten) are spayed/neutered before adoption. All of our cats are tested, wormed and have received their age appropriate shots.
