AN animal welfare charity is offering free talks to help people understand more about cats.

The Cats Protection League is putting on adult talks – and interactive workshops for four to 18-year-olds.

It wants to teach people about the correct needs and treatment of cats which are pets and strays and improve cat health.

It hopes to also raise awareness of its own work.

Children will receive goody bags, which include pencils, balloons, logo bugs, cat masks and booklets on cats.

The workshops will be staged in cities and towns across the south, including Southampton, Winchester, Fareham and Gosport.
