Residents have been “catnapped” at the Halifax RSPCA’s cattery today (Sunday) and are not being allowed to leave until they raise £500!
The “Catnapped 2014” event is raising money for The RSPCA Inspector Andy Thompson Memorial Cattery and is taking place at the animal centre on Wade Street until 4pm.
In total, 20 resident and staff from local business have been catnapped. “Victims” will spend up to four hours - a minimum of one - in a cat pen and are unable to leave until they raise £500 for the cattery, which is celebrating its tenth birthday and was named after the late RSPCA inspector Andy Thompson. The person who raises the most money and stays in the cat pen for the full four hours will be given the “Top Cat” trophy. The charity hopes to raise £10,000.
