“The People’s Friend” Love Darg is back!

Once again, we’re inviting keen knitters and crocheters to spend a little time creating something special in support of Cats Protection.

The UK’s leading cat welfare charity helps around 200,000 cats and kittens each year.

In 2018, it found new homes for 41,000 cats, reunited 3,000 lost cats with their owners. It even found homes in places like farms and garden centres for 19,000 feral cats, too!
