Cats Protection is calling for a change in the law to prevent the sale of sick and underage kittens.
Why is this law needed?
Kittens that are sick and far too young to be separated from their mother are being sold by those who are more interested in money than the welfare of animals. The law in the UK needs to change in order to prevent the sale of these sick and underage kittens. The Government is reviewing the law governing the sale of pets for the first time in over 60 years.
Cats Protection wants better safeguards for the commercial sale of all types of cats across the board whether they are non-pedigree ‘moggies’ or pedigrees.
Cats Protection is calling for:
prohibition on sales of kittens under eight weeks
closure of legal loopholes that allow repeat commercial breeding for sale from the family cat or cats
a clear definition of commercial pet sales to protect the welfare of cats and kittens
Today I am remembering my sweet baby girl Suzy, who I was lucky to share my life with for 13 years.
There’s not much you can do with old photos from the 1980s but I feel that these arty creations are a slight improvement on the originals, which I scanned to computer and then edited.
Suzy was a beautiful Tuxie girl with the most incredible green eyes that spoke of love and a past existence we once shared. She may be gone from this plane, but I know she’s waiting for me over the Rainbow Bridge. Or maybe one day she will return. As one of my soulmate cats we are bonded for eternity.

If you have an animal in your life then you are truly blessed. When you’re going through hard times,your beloved pet will always be there to help you through. Like days when you can’t face getting out of bed. I’ve been there. And still end up back there sometimes. But Athena helps me through those days and stops me reaching for the bottle like I did in the past.
