CP clocks up 90 years

90 year birthday

May marks the 90th anniversary of Cats Protection, a charity established in 1927 by a group of cat lovers, led by Miss Jesse Wade. The purpose of the then-named Cats Protection League was to “exclusively” promote the interests of cats, at a time when cats were generally regarded as pests. The name was changed to Cats Protection in 1998. By 2012, CP had rehomed its 1,000,000th cat.
