Feline Lonely event
You could find your true love match this Valentine's Day as we're holding a special late night Cattery opening on 14 February to make sure no-one is Feline Lonely.
Our expert Rehomers will be taking on the role of matchmakers so prospective owners can help a cat in need to find love in a new home. Our team will perfectly pair people and cats, making sure their lifestyles suit each other. Prospective owners will have their own profiles depending on working hours, likes and dislikes and previous experience with cats. Each cat also has a personality profile outside its pen, covering everything from where they would like to live to their favourite toy, allowing visitors to see at a glance if they are the one for them.
Operations Manager Philip Heron explains: “Matching a cat and an owner is a real skill, so our Rehomers truly are matchmakers. We’re looking to make long-lasting relationships where both sides will be happy and content for many years to come. We want people to forget the jokes about single cat ladies, as cats genuinely are wonderful companions. They are loving, gentle, and many older cats are happy to spend time alone while you’re out and are delighted to see you when you get back. They really are perfect partners.”
The event will run throughout the day at all three sites but will continue throughout the evening until 8pm at Battersea's London cattery. The event could be a perfect place to find a human companion as well.
Send a Valentine's Ecard
Battersea has created a series of pet-themed Ecards to send to your loved one thie Valentine's Day. What better way of telling someone you love them then sending some cat or canine capers to their inbox?
