We're also calling for measures to control the breeding and sale of kittens to drive out unscrupulous breeders and prevent the growing number of unwanted cats. 
 
The Manifesto for Cats was unveiled at a parliamentary reception for invited MPs and guests which was hosted by Neil Parish MP and supported by PetPlan. We were delighted to be joined by the Minister for Animal Welfare, Lord de Mauley and the Shadow Minister Angela Smith MP.
