This Month’s Cause

The Scottish Wildcat is the world’s rarest cat.

Wildcat Haven is a grass roots, community driven conservation project. They are the only Scottish wildcat conservation group focused solely on saving the wildcat in the wild where it belongs. The Scottish wildcat evolved from a population of European wildcats which became isolated by the English Channel over 9000 years ago. They are the largest of the wildcat family and can be double the size of a domestic pet cat and infinitely more ferocious.

See our resources and have a cat themed fundraising ‘Caturday’ so your care home can adopt a Scottish Wildcat and help to save these beautiful and rarest of cats.
