Simon’s Cat helps to raise funds for feline friends

Cat’s Protection online sponsor pens have received a Simon’s Cat style makeover as part of an ongoing partnership between the charity and the fictional feline.

Having supported Cats Protection’s sponsorship programme since late last year by sharing pen updates to his followers, the illustrated internet sensation, created by Simon Tofield, is now making an appearance in all six online cat descriptions on the charity’s website.

Simon’s Cat and Cats Protection are joining forces on the spornsorship scheme as they are keen to create an increased awareness of the programme and the cats in the charity’s care.

The sponsorship page features six cats currently in the charity’s care across the UK. Once each cat is homed, the next cat to enter the corresponding pen will take its place on the website and those sponsoring that pen will receive an update about the cat they are now helping.

Richard Howard, Cats Protection’s Coroporate Partnerships Manager, said: “This is the next step in our relationship with Simon’s Cat and we’re incredibly grateful for the ongoing support.

“Our sponsorship programme allows people to make regular payments to help unwanted cats and kitten, providing them with shelter, warmth, food, medical care and the love they need.”

Simon’s Cat who celebrated his 10th anniversary earlier this year, has been involved with Cats Protection since 2014, providing pin badge and Christmas card designs, collaborating on a series of ‘cat logic’ videos and sharing important cat welfare messages to his fans.

Simon Tofield said: “We’re always looking for ways to improve the lives of cats so we’re really happy to help in this way. There are so many wanted cats so anything you can do to help the charity care for them while they await new homes is greatly appreciated.”
