We are all here because we love our cats to the end of the world and back.
Please understand that there are lots of ways of dealing with cats and what works for one person and their cat might not work for you and your cat.
No questions are stupid :) Everyone has much to learn still

What would happen to your cats if you die ?

It's not something that many of us would wish to be thinking about, especially those of us in our younger years but have you ever wondered what will happen to your cats after you die ? Who would take them in and look after them for you ?

A post was copied from another Cat group to our local Pet group that got me thinking.
Hello, lovely cat peeps. Sadly, we are always hearing of cases, when an owner had died, without arrangements put in place for their pets. Just a reminder, that RSPCA, CP and Blue Cross all have schemes whereby a cat can be registered and in the event of an owner dying, will undertake to try and find a new home. Cinnamon Trust also specialises in this, but pre register is needed. This can all be done on line within a matter of minutes. Just a thought xx

There's no links on this one so I thought it would be helpful to find them out and make a note of them for anyone who is interested in finding out more information.
I found these links online but definitely check the information posted by contacting each charity directly.

The Blue Cross scheme is called Pets into Care

The Cats Protection scheme is called Cat Guardians

The RSPCA scheme is called Home for Life

The Cinnamon Trust doesn't appear to have much information on their website about their scheme
... = The Cinnamon Trust also provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets
