At Cats Protection we understand the unique bond that is shared by cats and people, that they are a part of your family. That’s why we offer a number of services and support designed to make life better for cats and people together, even in the toughest circumstances.
One of the many ways we do this is through Cats Protection Lifeline, a dedicated cat fostering service that provides temporary, safe and loving homes for cats whose families are fleeing domestic abuse. A survivor of domestic abuse often has to leave everything behind, including their cat, as most refuges are unable to accept them. They must make a painful decision to leave their cat behind in the knowledge they may be harmed, or stay, knowing that their own life might also be at risk.
Donate today and together we can make sure that all cats are given a safe and loving home.
Cats Protection’s Lifeline gives survivors a chance to get away from danger by looking after their cats until they are able to take them back safely. It’s just one of the ways Cats Protection is making a better life for cats and people together.
Your donation will help us provide food, shelter, care and veterinary treatment to cats and kittens.
Just like humans, cats also need refuge from abuse. Cats like Mr Biggles. Mr Biggles could always find the best hiding places in the house. As soon as he heard loud shouting and banging, he would wriggle himself into a cupboard, squeeze behind a sofa or creep under a bed, followed closely by Ava. Ava, and her mum, Emily, were experiencing domestic abuse, and Mr Biggles was also often a target too. As Emily and Ava were preparing to leave their home, they knew they had to make sure Mr Biggles would be safe too. But with most refuges unable to accept pets, survivors can be left with an impossible decision of getting to safety but leaving their beloved pet behind, where they may be at risk of ongoing harm.
Lifeline is just one of the ways Cats Protection is making a better life for cats and their families, even in the toughest circumstances. Today, Mr Biggles is safely reunited with Ava. Together again. Your support means we can be there for more cats this winter.
