Cabinet Minister supports end to dog and cat experiments


Energy Secretary Ed Davey (LibDem), MP for Kingston and Surbiton, has shown his support for the campaign to end experiments on cats and dogs. An example of experiments carried out includes when Cardiff University sewed the eyelids of kittens together - something that just shouldn't be condoned.

The BUAV’s “Vote Cruelty Free” appeal was endorsed by Mr Davey, along with commitments to support an end to experiments causing extreme suffering and experiments for non-medical purposes (such as household products).

BUAV CEO Michelle Thew said: “Mr Davey’s support for this broad range of measures shows a real commitment to reducing animal suffering, and we believe will be very welcome to the great majority of his constituents. We are very encouraged by the support for the Vote Cruelty Free campaign, which has so far gained the backing of over one hundred Conservative, Labour, LibDem, Green, UKIP and Plaid Cymru candidates.”

Cheshire and Wain

This week we're giving you the chance to win a piece of kitty couture! The Beluga Cat Collar is Cheshire & Wain's most luxurious leather safety collar to date. Presented in a special, limited edition gift tin, the collar is made from sumptuous 'caviar grain' leather and has soft, suede lining for your cat's comfort.

Cheshire & Wain was established in 2013 by cat lover, Sonja Farrell who found it difficult to find high quality cat collars that were also safe.
