    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    Based in the U.K, Mama Cat Trust rescues animals daily here and also implements neutering programmes for feral and stray cats in Spain.
    Unspayed feral or stray female cats spend most of their lives hungry, pregnant, and nursing yet more unwanted kittens. Unneutered tomcats fight to win mates, often suffering debilitating and potentially life threatening wounds in the process. Most kittens born in feral colonies do not survive their first year. It's a struggle to survive without veterinary treatment and miserable life for these cats. The solution is the trap, neuter and return method where cats are caught in a specialised and harmless trap, given a health check, neutered and treated for any other problems. They are then returned to their familiar environment where they can live a longer happier and healthier life. If the area has become unsafe, for example in cruelty or poisoning cases, an alternative habitat is sought. Where possible, loving homes are found for kittens and tame cats but there are always more kittens and cats than there are homes. After sterilisation each cat is given an internationally recognised ‘ear tip’, a simple and completely painless procedure carried out under anaesthetic to identify the cat as neutered.
    To help Mama Cat Trust continue their incredible work I'll be running the Richmond half marathon on the 1st May this year, with proceeds going towards the £5000 target they need to achieve to become a registered charity. I'm a tiny bit scared as I've never done this before but you can help make sure I don't flake out by donating to this extremely worthwhile cause. Me, Richard (pictured) and all the cats here and in Spain will love you for it :) Thank you!
