The government have announced plans to introduce a new criminal offence of ‘Pet Abduction’. Whilst this is good news, it should in fact be called ‘dog abduction’ as the offence will only cover the theft of dogs.

We don’t think that’s fair! The number of cat abductions is on the rise, and the impact on cats and their owners is just as great as it is in cases of dogs being abducted. That’s why we’re fully behind a petition raised by Cats Protection to include cats in the new bill that’s being proposed. Please sign their petition at the following link, and you’ll also then be able to send an auto-generated email to your local MP:

Please spread the word – working together we can all do our bit to stop cat abductions today! Thank you.
