Providing For Your Cat After You Are Gone — 4 Comments

  1. I’m only 35 but I am thinking about making provisions. I have a friend who I would want to have my cats if I am not around. Therefore I want them to go to her and I want her to have enough money every year to look after them. That’s as simple as that really 🙂

    • I’m glad you have a trusted friend to take care of your cats if necessary Marc.
      For all we have many cat loving friends we have no one close enough who could take on our 2 cats, they are 11 years old and used to being indoor/outdoor cats and our home revolves around them.
      The chances are one or both of us will outlive our much loved boyz, sad days to dread, but if anything unexpected did happen to us we know that Cats Protection would ensure they both got suitable and loving homes as we have a branch right here in our town.

  2. I think this is a wonderful idea and it also opens up the possibility of older people being able to adopt a cat because if they sign up for this with Cats Protection, they will have peace of mind knowing their cat will be taken care of if he outlives his caretaker.
    I think that anyone who doesn’t actually have any money to leave a legacy in their will, could instead leave instructions that donations be given to Cats Protection in lieu of flowers at their funeral.
    We signed up with Cinammon Trust years ago incase anything happened to us both together, but as their sanctuary is down in Cornwall and far away from people living in the North this is better because Cats Protection have branches all over the country.

  3. I think this is a great service by CP and I think that as well as providing peace of mind for cat owners and as well as CP hopefully being left a legacy in return for that peace of mind maybe more older people who previously were too worried about their cat outliving them will now dare to have another cat, maybe an older cat, knowing that if the worst happens the cat will be cared for, it might even help CP to rehome more cats to older people and so reduce the number of cats waiting for loving homes. There is of course already the Cinammon Trust but it is based in Cornwall, an awful long journet for cats from the North, the beauty of the CP scheme is that cats will be cared for by the local branch. We’re considering this seriously incase the unthinkable happened and our two precious boys were left orphaned.
