I have always been an animal lover; this much about me has never changed.
I have two 1 year old cats named Pandora and Jacob, a 4 year old male American Akita named Logan and two kittens named Ginger and Rogue.
I've always wanted to find a way to help my local animal charities and I'm pleased to say that I'm starting with the Stoke-on-Trent & Newcastle-Under-Lyme branch of Cats Protection.
Jake and Pan (named after Lyra's daemon in Philip Pullman's Northern Lights) were adopted last Summer. Logan (named after X-Men's Wolverine) was rescued from the Stoke-on-Trent City Dogs home in January this year, after he was found as a stray on Christmas Eve. Ginger and Rogue are the newest additions to my little animal family, rescued from Iris's Cats Charity in Stoke-on-Trent just this week. Ginger is a 12 week old tortoiseshell who was found under a bush and Rogue is an 8-week old ball of fury.
“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.”
The Cats Protection charity was first formed in 1927 as 'The Cats Protection League' and has grown to be the UK's biggest feline welfare charity. Cats Protection help over 200,000 cats per year through their extensive network of 250 branches, 29 adoption centres and their homing centre.
Cats Protection operates solely on precious volunteer time and much needed donations.
I've always been a supporter of Cats Protection and am more than happy to dedicate some of my time to working for the charity to help their operations and support needy felines across the country.
As Admin Angels UK is based in Stoke-on-Trent, this is the branch that we'll be working with. We'll be dedicating some of our time to updating the Cats Protection website and Facebook page to ensure that information is current and up-to-date, allowing the other volunteers to focus on rescuing and rehoming these beautiful animals.
To donate, adopt, volunteer or foster please visit the Cats Protection website.
If you have a lost or found cat please post a description and a photo on both the Cats Protection Facebook Page and Iris's Cats.
