Sheffield cat owners needed for online focus group that aims to improve cat health and welfare
The group will help provide information for a nonprofit initiative called CatKind to better advise and educate the public on how to care for their cats.
RSPCA campaign manager Carrie Stones said, “Unfortunately, Covid has curtailed efforts to control the cat population – whether because veterinarians cannot offer routine appointments or charities are unable to advise the public and advise on castration schemes.
“We know the demand for animals has increased as our statistics show that more and more people are looking for ways to adopt cats and kittens. There is a fear that if we fail to convey the right messages to these potential new owners, we could face a welfare problem later.
