Since its birth in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity. They now help around 200,000 cats and kittens every year through their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, and 36 adoption centres. They have over 5,000 cats in their care at any time and in 2014 rehomed and reunited over 48,000 cats – on average 100 per day.
The average life expectancy for a cat is 12 to 14 years though many cats survive to their late teens and early 20s in remarkably good health, depending on how well they are looked after. The charity tries to maximise this and this is why they still need your support!
The charity understands that it is difficult to lose a cat, so they have designed a support line consisting of volunteers to provide emotional support. This line is completely confidential and can be reached on 0800 024 94 94.
