Sunday saw the grand opening of a new double pen for Cats Protection cats. Built in the garden of our two star volunteer fosterers Evelyn and David, each pen can hold up to 3 cats that are related or lived together in their previous home. Each pen boasts 2 'bedrooms', complete with radiator, heat pad (perfect for the winter months) and bed, plus a ramp and shelf to jump onto.

As you know, the Glasgow branch doesn't operate from a centre, rather we place our cats with fosterers. This means that it is not always ideal to place strays that have been outside for a long time or very aggressive cats in a fosterer's home at first, so the pen is perfect for this. This way the cat can be observed until it has had a chance to settle in and then maybe moved to a fosterer's home at a later stage.

Grey-and-white moggy Bailey is the first guest, he was abandoned by his family when they moved away and left him out in the cold, so he's enjoying the heat pad and all the attention very much! The branch has a very long waiting list of cats needing to come into Cats Protection care and this is all the more urgent in the winter months. We, along with Bailey, would like to thank everyone who has donated to the branch for making the opening of these new pens possible- you have made a huge difference to Glasgow cats.
