We did it, Monty is our 1000th cat to be rehomed!

We did it!

The Anglia Coastal branch is extremely proud to announce that Monty is the 1,000 cat to be rehomed !

The branch has clocked up 1,000 cats rehomed in just four years, that’s an annual average of 250 abandoned and stray felines since black kitten Odin was the first to be rehomed in 2015, with it’s 1000th cat being Monty, a nine-month-old black kitten who came into the branch as a young stray.

Cat Welfare Coordinator Christine Cutts, who has been with the branch since it opened its doors, said “To achieve such a tremendous result is the culmination of a lot of hard work by all of the branch members.”

“It is a great feeling and a fantastic achievement to be a part of helping these cats into new loving homes, supported by a fantastic bunch of volunteers. We have rehomed a staggering 271 cats so far this year, bringing our tally to 1,007, and we're not finished yet.

“Some of the cats have come into our branch in a bad way, and to know that they are now happy and much loved by their new owners is very special to me, and I’m looking forward to helping get homes for our next 1,000 cats.”

Linda Holland, the East Anglian branch’s acting Admin Coordinator with more than 25 years’ of experience in Cats Protection said: “Without the help and support of our wonderful volunteers and the general public we would not have been able to achieve so much in just four short years.

“Putting the right cat into the right home with the right family can be difficult when we have so many different personalities in both people and cats, but our rehoming officers rarely get it wrong. We are also on hand to advise and support to help cats settle into their new homes.”

Our work continues, but in the meantime take a look at this video and reminisce about some of the wonderful cats that have gone on to their furr ever homes since we started...
