Feline festivities at parliamentary reception


Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, joined colleagues at a parliamentary reception to celebrate the work of Cats Protection and help the charity come up with names for unwanted cats that come into its care.

Justin added his suggestion of ‘Jeremy’ to a list of moggy monikers to be used for cats and kittens that come into the charity’s adoption centres in 2017!

Cats Protection is the UK’s largest cat charity, helping around 200,000 cats every year through a network of over 250 voluntary-run branches and 32 centres.

Justin said:

“Cats are one of the nation’s favourite pets - we have three at home - so it was good to have the opportunity to discuss with Cats Protection how we can improve feline welfare in the UK.

“The charity works hard to tackle the problem of unwanted cats and kittens, by promoting neutering and offering advice and information on responsible cat ownership and I support their call for a change in the law to better protect kittens and breeding cats from poor breeding practices that frequently lead to serious health issues.”

“I hope that whichever Cats Protection cat ends up being called ‘Jeremy’ has a long and happy life!”
