We'd love to keep in touch by telling you about our work with cats, inviting you to support fundraising appeals, join events, campaigns or to volunteer. However, we don't want to bother you unnecessarily. This is why we may analyse your personal information (and in some cases add publicly available information) to help ensure we send you communications we think you will care about. Rest assured, we'll never swap or sell any details about you with other organisations. If you'd like to receive information by email, please tick. If you wish to change the ways we contact you, please contact Support Services: tel: 0800 917 2287 Mon-Fri, email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post: Freepost Cats Protection. We will also process your data for administrative purposes and to contact you about this campaign.

Please tell the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) why microchipping pet cats matters. Help more missing cats like Monty be reunited with their family.
Monty was one of the lucky ones. He was microchipped, so when he was found two years after he went missing he could be reunited with his best friend Aaron.
But not every cat is as lucky as Monty. Across the UK over three million owned cats aren’t microchipped* meaning they don’t have any permanent identification. Cats roam and may become lost but a microchip gives a lost cat the best chance of being safely reunited with its owner.
Cats Protection urgently needs your help. Defra is actively looking at the issue of cat microchipping so it’s vital as many people as possible respond to their consultation to let them know how important microchipping is for cats and their owners.
To help you out we’ve written an email for you. You can add your own words and stories about why microchipping matters for you and your cat.
You can help us change the law for the benefit of pet cats and their owners.
The consultation closes on 4 January 2020 so don't delay. Send your email to Defra today!
