Gorgeous ginger moggy Biff has won the inaugural photo competition of Cats Protection’s Brighton & District Branch, proving that #PurrfectlyImperfect cats are beautiful. The photo of seven-year-old Biff was taken by his owner Eve Plumridge, who adopted him after he had a rocky start in life.
Many of us are getting used to a ‘new normal’ due to restrictions from the COVID-19 lockdown, and that includes charities like Cats Protection. In order to continue to be #HereForTheCats and find the moggies in our care loving new families, we’ve had to adopt a brand new way of rehoming.
TV critic and garden security cat PK, who was adopted from Cats Protection’s Downham Market Adoption Centre, has proved the perfect quarantine companion to his owner who is on furlough due to lockdown restrictions.
From trekking the stairs at home to running a marathon on the driveway, our super supporters have continued to be #HereForTheCats during lockdown. But fundraising isn’t limited to sporty challenges. Here’s how four Cats Protection supporters have put the fun into fundraising with their own unique activity ideas…
16-year-old tabby Summer arrived at Cats Protection’s Cornwall Adoption Centre as an arthritic and emaciated stray. The mature moggy was so thin that a member of the centre team could fit their thumb and first finger in a circle around her abdomen.
Two kittens found outside with their seven siblings near Bridgend have had to have emergency surgery to remove their eyes. Rome and Ranchi were unlikely to have survived alone much longer if they had not been discovered by a cat-savvy member of the public.
Seven tiny kittens are lucky to be alive after being abandoned at an age when they should still be with their mothers. The young cats were all underweight when they were found in a taped up cardboard box outside the gates of Cats Protection’s Isle of Wight Adoption Centre.
Ginger cat Harrison was rescued in a dreadful state from a multi-cat household. The scrawny moggy was brought in to Cats Protection’s Wrexham Adoption Centre following a plea for help from a vet who was dealing with a case of a house full of 29 cats.
From having just one unneutered cat, a man in Harrow found himself with a house full of 17 cats during the COVID-19 lockdown. In a short space of time he became overwhelmed with litters of kittens as his moggies began to breed, and soon realised he couldn’t cope.
