Cats those independent furry animals who purr their way into our homes, wake you from a deep slumber, come and go as they please and only want fuss at their demand. But Yet we still love our cats. We are a nation of cat lovers. Cats are the second most popular pet in the UK, over the next few days we are going to be giving advice everyone who is looking after or is thinking about looking after a cat needs to know.
We know they come and go as they want. We know they are Independent so Do cats have legal owners?
Contrary to common belief, cats are the property of their owner. You may believe that you simply share your home with your cat, which is your companion and friend, but it does legally belong to you. Even if your cat has strayed or is lost, you are still its owner and therefore responsible for the actions of your cat.
It is illegal to abandon your cat. If you can no longer look after your cat you would need to contact a rescue centre which would then become the owner of your cat.
