Welcome The Purrfect Pet Into Your Heart And Home This Valentine's Day

Welcome The Purrfect Pet Into Your Heart And Home This Valentine’s Day

Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre will be playing matchmaker this Valentine’s weekend in a bid to find homes for some of its loneliest cats. The centre, in Lewes Road, Chelwood Gate, will be hosting its Lonely Hearts event on Saturday 11 February from 10am until 4pm.

Staff and volunteers will be on hand to help visitors find their purr-fect pet from the 150 unwanted cats and kittens currently in the charity’s care. Visitors will also be able to enjoy pink lemonade, chocolate hearts and the chance to win a Valentine’s Hamper during the free family-friendly event.

Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre Deputy Manager Jonathan Ramsden said the centre was hosting the event to raise the profile of some of its longest-staying cats. He said: “With so much love in the air, we’re hoping Valentine’s weekend will encourage more people to open their heart to adopting a cat from Cats Protection. February is a really great time to adopt a cat, once the excitement of Christmas and New Year is over. Because it’s also quite chilly, a new cat would rather stay indoors, giving you the perfect time to bond and get to know each other. We have some really lovely cats in our care which haven’t yet found an owner, and we’re really hoping now will be the time they catch someone’s eye. While we work very hard to give each cat plenty of love and attention, there really is no substitute for a home of their own. So we’d ask anyone considering adopting a cat to come along to our Lonely Hearts day and welcome a new cat into their heart and home.”

Some of the lonely cats currently in the care of Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre are:

  • Sally Ten-year-old Sally has been at the centre since October. She’s a laid-back cat who would love a home where she can curl up on a cosy sofa and enjoy some home creature comforts.
  • Maverick: Seven-year-old Maverick has been waiting for a new home since October and would now desperately like a home without other pets or young children, where he can be the centre of attention.
  • Margot Chatterbox Margot loves to interact with people and would love a home where she can get plenty of attention. At twelve-years-old, she is still very adventurous and curious and loves to be at the heart of the action. She needs a home without young children or other cats.
  • Jazz Four-year-old Jazz came to the centre in December and is a sociable puss looking for a home without other cats.

If you can offer a home to one of Cats Protection’s Lonely Hearts cats or to find out more about the event, please call the National Cat Adoption Centre on 01825 741 330.
