Cats Protection’s Beverley and Pocklington Branch are celebrating National Black Cat Day a few days early on Sunday instead of next Thursday.
The branch hopes to encourage people to find a place in their hearts and homes for an unwanted black or black and white moggy.
The pens at 221 Hull Road, Woodmansey HU17 0TR will be open from 11am until 1pm on Sunday.
Following the success of last year’s black cat campaign, the charity is asking people to ‘paws’ for thought when adopting and think about the plight of black cats that tend to lose out on homes to more colourful felines.
Nationally, Cats Protection’s 257 volunteer-run branches and 30 adoption centres are currently looking after more than 6,200 cats. Around half of these are black or black and white and on average each of these cats waits around a week longer than other moggies to be rehomed.
The Beverley & Pocklington Branch have a number of long stay black and black and white cats deserving new homes.
For further information about cats and kittens available for adoption call Sheila Rees on 01482 861866 or Carol on 01482 882347 or visit www.bpcp.org.uk.
