Therefore, these cats and kittens could do with all the help they need. Of course, not just at Christmas, but, at all times throughout the year.
With this blog though, we are going to look at some of the ways that you can spread some Christmas cheer, with helping cats and kittens, who do not have a home this Christmas.
The best way that you can help a homeless cat or kitten this Christmas, is to adopt one, or two in the case of kittens (as that is how the Cats protection usually adopts kittens out).
Remember though, a cat or kitten is for life, not just for Christmas. The sad truth of the matter is, is that according to the RSPCA as much as three pets are abandoned every hour over the Christmas period. There are too many people who adopt pets, and then abandon them on Christmas, or straight after Christmas. So, if you are adopting a pet, make sure that the pet is welcome in your home, that you're willing to commit to keeping the pet for the duration of their life, and, don't abandon a pet.
If you are not 100% certain that you can commit to a pet, the second best way is to donate to your local shelter.
Animal charities, in the UK receive no lottery funding, neither do they receive any government funding, like other charities. This means that it is even tougher for animal charities to survive, because they rely solely on the good will of the public.
You don't have to donate a large sub, everything adds up. And often you can sponsor a pet.
3. Handmake/donate goods
Often charities are on the look out for accessiories for the shelters. For example, the Cats protection looks for handmade knitted blankets or toys for the cats.
A good way to spread Christmas cheer to these homeless cats and kittens, is to hand make a blanket, or toy for them, or, you can donate some blankets, and toys to your nearest cat shelter!
