Manifesto for Cats
10 February 2015
In this General Election year, 2015, Cats Protection has launched a Manifesto for Cats and will be calling on the new Government to put in place measures to protect cats from abandonment, harm and neglect. After a three-month, public consultation 93 per cent of participants agreed with all of the 10 suggested manifesto priorities which are designed to benefit cats, owners and society as a whole.
The Manifesto for Cats was unveiled at a parliamentary reception for invited MPs and guests on 10 February which was hosted by Neil Parish MP and supported by PetPlan. CP was delighted to be joined by the Minister for Animal Welfare, Lord de Mauley and the Shadow Minister Angela Smith MP.
CP's Manifesto priorities include calls for tighter regulation of the licensing of air guns and banning the use of snares – both of which cause unimaginable pain and suffering, through injury and death, to cats on a daily basis. It also calls for measures to control the breeding and sale of kittens to drive out unscrupulous breeders and prevent the growing number of unwanted cats.
