Surrey cats benefit from teenage boys Christmas wish
08 January 2021
When Haslemere teenager James Grieve was asked what he wanted for Christmas, one thing came to mind; to help the needy cats of Surrey.
Aunt Vivien was unsurprised by her 14-year-old nephew’s wish but his generosity was a welcome donation for the team at Cats Protection’s Haslemere Adoption Centre.
Cat Care Assistant Joe Campbell said: “A few days before Christmas we received a call from a lady whose nephew had asked for his present to be a donation to the cats in our care. It was such a lovely surprise and a perfect example of how the people of Surrey have supported us through a difficult year.
“It was such a lovely gesture. Sadly we couldn’t invite James to see the cats or tour our centre but we look forward to welcoming him to have a proper look around once that is possible.”
As well as food and sanitary products, the donation also went towards warm blankets, toys and cat comforts that make like in care more enjoyable.

Caring for cats comes at a price and often involves expensive veterinary treatment. Cats Protection relies on financial donations and a great deal of major fundraising has been cut back due to the pandemic.
