The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) has announced that its 2016, charity of the year, is International Cat Care.

International Cat Care is a charity which is passionate about improving the care of all cats. Pet cats, stressed cats, ill cats, homeless cats, free-living cats, old and young cats all have different needs, different problems and different approaches. The charity was formerly known as the Feline Advisory Bureau (FAB) and was renamed International Cat Care, in 2013. The name change coincided with a dramatic increase in the charity’s international welfare work for unowned cats, demand for information from cat owners all over the world, and work with veterinary organisations worldwide.

Commenting on the choice of charity, Rosie Barclay, APBC chair, says: “The International Cat Care website – www.icatcare.org - is an excellent first stop for scientifically based advice on all things feline and we are delighted to help raise its profile both with our members, and the general public.”

For over 50 years the charity has been raising the standard of treatment and care provided to cats by veterinary surgeons, boarding cattery operators, those involved in rescue work, breeders, and cat owners by providing the best information possible. Its mission is to engage, educate and empower people throughout the world to improve the health and welfare of cats by sharing advice, training and passion.

Feline behaviour specialist at ICC, Dr Sarah Ellis, says “All of us at International Cat Care, are absolutely delighted to be the APBC’s charity of the year. We strive to improve the knowledge of cat owners all over the world on all aspects of behaviour and are delighted for this recognition from the APBC.”

The APBC is a not for profit organisation whose members help resolve behaviour problems in companion animals ranging from dogs, cats and horses to birds and reptiles. In recognition of the critical link between behaviour and physical health, its international network of experienced behaviour counsellors works on referral from veterinary surgeons. The Association continues to recognise that a strong link between the veterinary surgeon and the behaviourist is essential in all cases, and it is a membership requirement that all members must work solely on veterinary referral.
