Our moggy modules have been created by our educational experts for kids between the ages of 5-11.
Designed to help young learners discover more about our feline friends, the packs include focused worksheets, quizzes and activities.
- Each module is linked to one of the five cat's needs - a place to live, behaviour, the right diet, good healthcare and space.
- In each pack, you'll find a worksheet aimed at 5-7 year olds and a worksheet for 7-11 year olds, complete with an answer sheet for you. On completion of all five of the moggy modules, there is a certificate ready to print off.

Microchipping offers cats a safe and permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost feline being safely reunited with his owner.
- Microchipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost pet (chips don't come off or put the cat at risk of injury like collars can)
- Each microchip has a unique number which is stored on a national database. A scan of the chip reveals the owner's name and address from the database's records
- A microchip is slightly smaller than a grain of rice and is inserted under the cat's skin between the shoulder blades
- The procedure is very simple and is no more painful than an injection. A cat will not be aware of the microchip's presence once inserted
Remember you should change your microchip details if you move house. You can do this by contacting your microchip database – find the phone number on your microchip paperwork.
Cats Protection is a member of a Microchip Advisory Group (MAG), aiming to improve the standards of microchipping across the UK
Cats Protection is also a member of the Microchipping Alliance which campaigned to make permanent identification (microchipping) compulsory for dogs. Thanks to this work, all dogs in England will have to be microchipped by April 2016. We also raise public awareness of the benefits of microchipping to cats and other companion animals.
