Chatter box A free, confidential helpline for grieving cat owners has been launched by Cats Protection.

Supported by online guides and leaflets, the Paws to Listen service offers owners emotional and practical help in coping with the loss of a cat.

The service comes as survey findings reveal that 75 per cent of cat owners believe the public underestimate how much the death of a cat can affect its owner.

For more information visit www.cats.org.uk or to speak to a volunteer on the Paws to Listen phone line, call 0800 024 94 94.  Chatter box

BVA joins campaign to end rabies by 2030

The BVA is joining the global End Rabies Now campaign which aims to put a stop to the disease by 2030. The announcement has been made to coincide with World Rabies Day (28 December).

Nearly all rabies cases occur as a result of a bite from an infected dog and around half of all dog bites and rabies deaths affect children under the age of 15.

End Rabies Now, which is led by the Global Alliance for Rabies Control, is working to significantly raise the profile of rabies as a global neglected tropical disease. It's three key messages are: vaccinating dogs ends rabies; every rabies death is preventable; and it's possible to end human deaths from canine-mediated rabies by 2030.
