Lost and found cats
Can you help us reunite any of these lost and found cats with their owners?
Help us stop a kitten smuggling scandal
The government has just announced new rules to prevent pet smuggling, but these proposals currently exclude cats and kittens. Join us in telling the government that they need to act to protect cats and kittens before it's too late.
Tell the government how you feel about kitten smuggling
Help make microchipping compulsory
Microchipping gives a lost cat the best chance of being reunited with its owner. Cats Protection is calling for the compulsory microchipping of owned cats.

Pet food recall - June 2021
Read our update on the pet food recall in response to an increase in cases of feline pancytopenia.
We’re heartened that so many cat lovers across the UK are currently considering how they can be of help to our feline friends.
We are considering how best to respond to the current situation with COVID-19, while focusing on cats in our care and keeping our current volunteers safe. While we do that we are temporarily suspending volunteer recruitment.
You can keep up to date with the situation on our Cats Protection Volunteers Facebook page.
You can also help us to raise funds each time you shop by signing up to our easyfundraising page.
