Education and group talks and visits

Our aim is to rehome cats to loving homes and to responsible pet owners. Through our education programme we aim to educate individuals on responsible animal ownership and promote cat and animal welfare throughout the UK.

Children
There are eight million cats in the UK making them the most popular pet and as such the likelihood of a number of your students being cat owners is highly probable. Cats Protection can help them be responsible cat owners through our free educational workshops. We have workshops for students aged 4-18 years on a variety of topics such as basic cat care, understanding feline behaviour and respecting cats and all animals. Our educational workshops are offered to every school throughout the UK and are completely free of charge.

Adults
We also offer talks to adults about our charity, and how to make your home a more welcoming environment for your cat.
If you would like to book a talk just get in touch Kirsty-Lou Watson our Community Education Officer.
