Here at Llys Nini most of the animals have been rescued by RSPCA Inspectors for reasons such as neglect & poor treatment by their previous owner, owners who can no longer look after them or as strays. 

When they come in to us they are often nervous of strangers & it can take weeks, sometimes months, of looking after them to prepare them for a new life & a second chance.

Please take this into consideration when looking for a new pet as we never know what life has been like for them before coming in to Llys Nini. 

The Seniors

Many people adopt kittens and the poor oldies are left waiting when all they need is a loving caring family to give them the love and affection an older cat needs...

Older cats aren't at an animal centre because they are defective or worn out.

They may have simply outlived their former owners or been unable to join them at a hospital or nursing home.

Please consider an older cat!

Feral Cats

Occasionally Llys Nini needs to find adoptive homes for feral cats which have come into its care.
Unlike their domestic relatives, ferals are natural hunters with only two major needs: reliable shelter (e.g. barns or outhouses) and food.

Farms and small-holdings provide the ideal surroundings and hopefully ferals would assist with rodent control!

If you are interested and would be agreeable to being contacted when the need arises, please get in touch via 

Seeing Double.................

You will regularly see on our site pairs of cats who need to be re-homed together. You may also have noticed that, sometimes, they take longer to re-home and perhaps you have wondered why we just don't split them up. It is usually because the cats are very close to one another and due to this we feel that it would not be fair to separate them.


What are the benefits of having two cats together?

Basically they are company for one another and, if you are out at work, it is far easier to leave them together without having to worry about them so much as they amuse one another and play together, especially with kittens.

We realise that the cost of keeping two cats is higher and you are the only ones who can know whether you can meet that cost, so you would need to balance that against the joy of having two amazing cats.

At this time, we have a few cat pairs available for re-homing.

Some have been here for a while, and we believe they are very special and deserve a great home.

So if you think you are right for one of our pairs then please pay us a visit.

Adopting a Cat!

 Please remember that pet ownership takes time, money, commitment and patience.
 If you find an animal to which you want to offer a home, we will need to ensure the animal is suitable for your circumstances. This process will include a home visit. We will provide advice on how to care for your new kitten or cat. All our animals are given flea & worm treatment, neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped before adoption.
If your cat is too young to be neutered you will be given a voucher to get him/her done when they are old enough.

If you do live in rented accommodation, please try and get the written permission before coming to the Centre. This will make the process a lot quicker.  
All this for £40!
This hardly ever covers the cost of all treatments
so please consider a rescue cat!

Micro-chip your Cat!!!

Get your Cat Micro-Chipped
at Llys Nini Animal Centre!

Having your cats micro-chipped allows them to be tracked back to you if they ever strayed. Each microchip has a unique number which is stored on a national database. A scan of the chip reveals the owner's name and address from the database's records. It is a simple process - you bring your cat up to the Centre, no appointment needed, where we can chip them which normally costs £12.50.

If in the future you do change your contact details you would need to update them by contacting the micro-chipping database which you will be given details on.  

For more information on Micro-chipping please visit:
or contact the centre.
It's Worth It, Don't Lose Them!
