Our vision

All cats, owned and unowned, are treated with care, compassion and understanding.

Our mission

To engage, educate and empower people throughout the world to improve the health and welfare of cats by sharing advice, training and passion.

International Cat Care is a charity passionate about improving the care of all cats.

Pet cats, stressed cats, ill cats, homeless cats, free-living cats, old and young cats all have different needs, different problems and different approaches. And this is where we come in... 


For over 50 years we have been raising the standard of treatment and care provided to cats by veterinary surgeons, boarding cattery operators, those involved in rescue work, breeders and, of course, cat owners by providing the best information possible.

Formerly known as the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB), our new name – International Cat Care – coincided with a dramatic increase in our international welfare work for unowned cats, demand for information from cat owners all over the world, and work with veterinary organisations worldwide. 

We work with veterinary and welfare organisations all over the world, with a panel of feline veterinary medicine experts, with a feline expert behavior team and with a welfare advisory panel. Additionally, individuals with expertise and experience in all areas of veterinary and cat care contribute to the charity to make sure that the level of information we provide to all cat owners and carers is second to none, is accurate and up to date.

Our veterinary division – the International Society of Feline Medicine – works with the veterinary profession across the world to provide cutting edge information for the veterinary care of cats and is recognised and respected for the standards it aspires to.

Since our founding in 1958 we have always been involved in projects to help stray, feral and unowned cats, but since 2012 this work has grown dramatically as we collaborate with and support many organisations around the world involved in cat welfare. And our work is very much hands-on – we are out there, physically guiding, supporting and teaching, putting a genuine understanding of the cat at the centre of what we do.
