… each year there are far too many unwanted kittens needing rescue and homing. Some are abandoned and have to fend for themselves if they can even survive, others are handed over to cat rescue organisations who are overflowing.

Cats Protection champions neutering or spaying as the only effective way to reduce the number of unwanted cats in the UK.

Often neutering is not done because of the cost involved, but Cats Protection offer financial assistance and you might be eligible to get your cat neutered and microchipped for only £10.

New legislation means that in England from 10 June 2024 it will be compulsory to have your cat microchipped from 20 weeks of age.
