Demand rises for cat containment as Croydon cat killings persist

A UK based company has seen an unprecedented amount of enquiries as the London Cat Killer continues to claim more victims.

ProtectaPet® designs, manufactures, exports and installs cat containment products. The proliferation of cat killings and mutilations in London and Gloucestershire has propelled cat containment products into the minds of anxious cat owners.

Simon Davies, director of operations, said: “Sadly, we hear about animal cruelty from our customers on a daily basis with antifreeze poisoning and shotgun wounds being the most common. Since the London Cat Killer’s regular appearance in national news, we are finding that cat owners from across the country are contacting us, while at least one quarter of enquiries are from London.”

Eve Davies, director of communications, said: “We advise owners of outdoor cats to minimise the risks of free-roaming by: vaccinating, neutering and microchipping, regularly treating for fleas, ticks and worms, keeping cats inside at night and during rush hours (get into the habit of feeding them before dusk so that they return at the appropriate time). Finally, report any suspicious behaviour towards cats to the RSPCA or police.”
