Remembering us in your will

legacy cat

  The promise of a lifetime…

It is thanks to the wonderful kindness of people who remember Cats Protection in their wills that we are able
to carry out much of our day to day work. These special gifts fund more than half of everything we do and are
vital to our work helping abandoned and unwanted cats and kittens.

Above all, we rely on gifts in wills to help us keep the special promise that underpins all of our work: that we
will never put a healthy cat to sleep. You could help us keep our special promise and care for even more cats
by leaving us a gift in your will.

We are incredibly grateful for every gift we receive, no matter what the size. Even the smallest gifts help us to
provide cats with food, a warm bed, veterinary attention and most importantly of all, find them a loving home.
With more than half the cats and kittens we help being cared for thanks to gifts in wills, we can only continue
our vital work if kind people like you support us in this special way.

This branch has benefitted greatly from legacies over the last few years.  It has enabled us to buy our van,
which is absolutey essential to us. It has also allowed us to update old fosterer pens, and buy new ones, and
so take on more fosterers and in turn has allowed us to help more cats.  We are grateful to these people who
remembered us in their Wills: Violet Annereau, Rosalind Raffan, Ann Poulter, Esme Farmer,
Margaret Thorogood, Joyce Burnes, Jean Sanders-Overy. Jenny Oakley and others.

we know that supporters involved with our local branches may wish to remember their specific branch or
adoption centre, or even leave their gift for the benefit of their local area.

wording will assist your solicitor in drawing up or amending your will:

If you are a cat owner you will naturally want to make sure that someone is there to look after the cat or cats
you love should something happen to you. If this is something that concerns you, you may wish to consider
registering with our Cat Guardians service. If you register to this service, and include a clause in your will
about these arrangements, then we promise to care for your cat(s) in the event of your death and find them a
loving new home.
