Over 200 people took to the streets of Bridgend, south Wales, in an attempt to set an unusual British record. By donning fluffy ears, tails and feline masks, 211 people aimed for a new record for the largest gathering of people dressed as cats. They will find out next month if Guinness World Records will recognize it as an official British record.
The ‘Catathon’ event was organised by Cats Protection’s Bridgend Adoption Centre to raise awareness of the thousands of unwanted cats and kittens that the charity helps to re-home.
Sue Dobbs, ‘Catathon’ organiser and manager of the Cats Protection Bridgend Adoption Centre says: “We’ve had an absolutely fantastic response from the local community – I want to say a big thank you to them all! I hope that everyone had a fun day, but also remember what it’s all about.
“At Cats Protection we see so many cats abandoned because people either don’t understand how to care for an animal, or don’t care. I hope that everyone who supported us this weekend will consider adopting a cat or kitten.”
