Give a Christmas gift that keeps on giving

#GivingTuesday is back this year and is bigger than ever. An antidote to the hustle and bustle of the festive season, it gives everyone a chance to commit time and money to doing good stuff on the same day – whether that means volunteering for a charity or tweeting about a cause you feel passionate about.

If you’ve not yet got started on your Christmas shopping, why not purchase a gift that keeps on giving from Cats Protection? You’ll find plenty of great ideas for the cat lover in your life while helping cats in need. To give you a helping hand, here’s some of the ways you can help Cats Protection just by doing your Christmas shopping:

1 - Give the gift of a great read

The Cat magazine Cats Protection


If you’ve got a feline fan to buy for this Christmas, a subscription to The Cat magazine could be the ideal gift. Each issue is packed with news, views and features as well as expert advice from vets. You can subscribe to the magazine for just £15 a year and by doing so, you’ll be contributing to the care of unwanted cats in the UK.

2 - Raise funds by being a VIP

Join the Pets at Home VIP Club and you could raise money for Cats Protection every time you swipe. You’ll also receive exclusive discounts and a free quarterly VIP magazine – perfect if you’re looking to make a pet-themed purchase this Christmas.

3 - Give the gift of becoming a Cats Protection sponsor

Sponsoring a cat pen is an ideal present for the cat lover in your life. Best of all, you’ll know that you’re providing cats in need with shelter, warmth, food and medical care. You can sponsor a cat pen from just £6 a month, making a great gift for someone special. 

4 - Raise free donations simply by shopping online

Sign up to Give as you Live and every time you purchase a product through their website with Cats Protection as your chosen charity, you’ll generate a free donation. With a vast range of retailers including eBay, Expedia and Moonpig, there’s plenty of opportunity for Christmas gifts too.

5 - Get wrapped up in our Christmas shop
