“This event will provide prospective new owners with the perfect opportunity to meet some of the cats that are currently being cared for by our branch and are seeking a new forever home,” said press and publicity officer Rachel Edwards.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Our vision is a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

“The Ely and District branch cares for and homes hundreds of cats and kittens every year, promotes and supports the neutering of cats in the area and provides information to improve understanding of all aspects of cat care.”

Looking for a home


Dewdrop is a lovely 12-year-old female. She has been a much-loved cat, so is looking for a quiet home with adults. She came to us when her owner had to move to residential accommodation and was unable to take her. She is looking for her forever happy home.


Not much is known about Lily who came to us as a stray. She is about a year old, very petite and pretty. She likes to play and have a fuss on her terms.


Harry is an eight-year-old male who was given to Cats Protection when his owner went into sheltered accommodation. He’s very friendly and affectionate and is good with cats and dogs. He will need access to a garden.
