Royal Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA)
The work of the RSPCA is as important today as ever. Originally founded in 1824 to fight animal cruelty, they have grown to become an authority on animal welfare, respected around the world. Fighting animal cruelty in all its forms is still the most vital part of their work - but another important part is educating the general public about the responsibilities of pet ownership.
Currently there are over seven million cats in the United Kingdom - and around half a million kittens. One in four households owns a cat; and for the first time, the number of cats owned has overtaken the number of dogs in Britain.

National Cat Centre
The Cats Protection has been helping cats and kittens since 1927.
CP deal with cat welfare, cat shelters and a placing system finding good homes for cats.
One of the things they have learnt over the years is that the better you understand your kitten, the greater your enjoyment of cat ownership will be.
Easter Balgarvie Cattage
The C.A.T.S. charity was set up in 1991 by Jan Liddle to rescue stray, abandoned and mistreated cats and kittens, and offers a home for life no matter how old or unhomable a cat may be. Since its founding, C.A.T.S. has had to raise its own funds by means of car boot sales, tombolas etc... because, being a small charity, funding from trusts have been very few and far between.
Nine Lives Cat Rescue
Nine Lives Cat Rescue was formed in 1994 to care for stray and unwanted cats and kittens - since that time it has helped over 1,500 felines. All of the 35 people who work there are volunteers. Nine Lives relies entirely on public support to raise the money needed for neutering and foster care, and for the advertising of cats available for homing.
