Rehoming day proves success for two Peterborough strays

Wednesday, 24th August 2011

Peterborough residents were invited to meet the moggies who they could be buying cat food for at a rehoming day held recently.

Cats Protection hosted a rehoming day at its Peterborough centre on Sunday (August 21st) between 11am and 12.30pm, during which locals met 30 feline residents, reports

During the event, two lucky cats found new homes. The Peterborough centre currently has 70 cats on its waiting list.

Bethan Griffiths, volunteer at the centre, told the news provider: "Homing events are a great chance to meet the cats and kittens we have ready for new homes.

"We have limited space, so we have to wait until cats are adopted before taking others in."

Cats Protection recently launched an app for the iPhone, through which users can feed cat food to a virtual feline friend.

In total, the charity helps over 230,000 unwanted cats every year through its 30 adoption centres that are run by 257 volunteers.
