Tiny Lends a Helping Paw

Tiny, the black moggie from Edgware, who was crowned the nation’s official Wookey Hole Witch Halloween Cat, has lent a paw to other cats in need by donating The Mayhew Animal Home in Kensal Green £250!

Petplan, the UK’s leading pet insurance provider, gave Patricia Bradshaw, Tiny’s owner, £250 to donate to a charity of her choice. Patricia chose Mayhew as this is where she has previously adopted her feline friends from.

Tiny was selected out of 1110 black cats to become the Wookey Hole Witch’s Official Cat. All entrants had been uploaded to Petplan’s National Petrait Gallery (www.petraitgallery.co.uk). Tiny was picked by an expert judging panel made up of Pet Behaviourist Pippa Hutchison, Petplan’s Alison Andrew and of course, the Witch of Wookey Hole.

Tiny’s owners receive a £250 donation to their animal charity of choice, a £100 animal gift hamper, a framed picture of Tiny in his new role as a witch’s cat, plus transport and entry to Wookey Hole to view his portrait in its pride of place at the Wookey Hole caves.

To see Tiny in all his glory, visit the National Petrait Galley website: (www.petraitgallery.co.uk).
