Cat lovers are being invited to join in a nationwide charity craftalong to create a bespoke plant pot in the likeness of their favourite moggy.
Cats Protection has teamed up with Jasmine Pottery Studio to come up with the Craft for Cats kits, which can be customised to create a clay lookalike of a much-loved pet cat.
Cats Protection’s Craft for Cats organiser Zoe Thompson said: “Everyone thinks their cat is the best – and quite rightly so! So we wanted to come up with a way where people could create something really special in honour of their own cat, whilst at the same time learning a new skill and raising money for Cats Protection.
“Each pot will be made with love and will be completely different. We supply all the materials by post, including the air dry clay and paints, and participants will also receive a video link to the craftalong to follow the instructions.
“The kits are great for cat owners or anyone that loves cats. They also make a truly lovely gift for someone as the finished piece will be a total one-off and a great way to honour a much-loved pet.”
The kits are available now for £30, with at least £10 from each sale going towards Cats Protection’s work in helping cats in need. A link to the video craftalong will be provided with each kit, which will take participants through each step of creating their pot.
In 2022, over 9,000 cat-loving crafters took part in Craft for Cats events, raising almost £220,000 for Cats Protection.
Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and has helped an average of 157,000 cats and kittens a year over the last five years through its national network which includes around 210 volunteer-run branches and 34 centres.
