I hope that this series raises the profile of Cats Protection's work and an awareness that cats aren’t just for Christmas. Pet’s aren’t presents. They need to be given a loving, permanent home and not a one-day excuse for some excitement and a few happy squeals! Pets are a amazing, beautiful and heart-warming commitment.

Where’s your cat from? Gloria was only 30 minutes old when she came to me; I was looking after her Mum during labour. Gloria was born first but sadly the second kitten became stuck and the Vets were unable to save her or the Mum so Gloria came home with me to be hand-reared.
Favourite food: Chicken
Favourite thing to do: Bite toes and catch pigeons. Gloria lives with three dogs and she rules over all of them!
Favourite toy: rolled up tin foil
Hates… spot-on flea treatment
Note: Cats Protection generally does not home cats over Christmas, as many cats do not settle well into a new home during this very busy time of year, but cats and kittens can be reserved for adoption so that they can be collected early in the New Year!
