The  UK’s largest cat charity is making an appeal for  home-made toy mice and blankets ahead of a visit to Harrogate. 

  • Cats Protection is visiting the Knitting & Stitching Show at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
  • They're making an appeal for home-made toy mice and blankets.  
  • Each years knitters across the country donate hand-crafted creations for cats being cared for by the charity.

Cats Protection is visiting the Knitting & Stitching Show at the Harrogate Convention Centre from 28th November to 1st December.

Each year, knitters across the country donate dozens of hand-crafted creations for cats being cared for by the charity while they wait to find new owners.

Cats Protection’s Events Manager Emma Osborne said:

“We have a growing army of wonderful knitters who give up a few evenings of their year to create toys and blankets for cats in our care. We always love seeing the fun patterns they come up with, and it’s especially lovely to see them being enjoyed by the cats in our care.

“Creating a toy mouse or a blanket is a great way to while away the chilly evenings before Christmas, as well as use up leftover balls of wool. We hope more people than ever will join in our knitting bee this year so we can give even more cats an extra treat this Christmas.”

Donations of knitted blankets or mice can be brought along to the charity’s stand at the event, or dropped into any of its branches, shops or adoption centres across the UK.

Cats Protection is the UK’s largest cat charity and helps around 200,000 cats every year through a network of around 250 volunteer-led branches and 36 centres.

Staff will also be on hand at the show to help visitors find out about cats available for adoption in their area, or how to become a volunteer for the charity.
