Tribute to Mr Sainsbury’s at Ely Cats Protection

On Saturday 25th June, 2 years later than planned due to Covid, the Garfield Memorial Pen was opened at Cats Protection, Little Ouse.

This is where cats are fostered before going onto their new lives. After Ely’s most famous cat passed away three years ago it was decided to have a pen named in his memory. Garfield (with a little help from owners David and Tina) had raised money for Cats Protection through a donation box in Sainsburys and a Just Giving page set up in his memory.

Royalties from a book written about Garfield’s adventures ‘What’s That Doing There?’ have also been donated to East Anglian Air Ambulance.

David has now commissioned local artist Sally Dunham to create a statue of Garfield, which he is hoping to be ready by next Spring and will be situated in Pocket Park.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help raise the £6500 needed. So far £1800 has been donated, and any excess raised will go to Cats Protection.
