Waiting lists for cats soar amid cost-of-living crisis, says Cats Protection

The charity said that an increasing demand on waiting lists is well above its historical average and looks likely to continue for the near future

UK cat welfare charity, Cats Protection, has revealed that its waiting lists have soared to a “historic high” as the number of cats waiting to enter its 34 Adoption Centres rose by 46% year-on-year in July 2022, up from 1,766 to 2,582 cats.

The charity’s volunteer-run branches report similar increases as owners are relinquishing their pets due to the cost-of-living crisis, and Cats Protection has issued an urgent plea for people to adopt felines.
