This years International Cat Care Awards were held at the beautiful Church House in Westminster.
The annual event celebrates the achievements of the charity and plays homage to those individuals and companies who have shown a real commitment and dedication to improving the health and welfare of cats.
This year’s awards also celebrated the charity’s 60thbirthday and were attended by some of iCatCare’s key supporters from the animal welfare sector, together with companies and organisations who have helped, sponsored and supported the charity over its 60 years.
International Cat Care’s patron, Lord Guy Black opened the awards ceremony, paying tribute to the work of the charity which was summed up in a fascinating video outlining the achievements made by International Cat Care in the past 60 years. Professor Stuart Carmichael, iCatCare’s chairman was then on hand to present the awards:
