Cats Protection has appointed James Yeates as its new chief executive.

James, who is currently CEO at the RSPCA, will take up his new role on November 1.

Cats Protection currently helps around 200,000 cats each year and James will lead efforts to expand its rehoming, neutering, education and advocacy work to help many more cats in the future.

As a qualified vet with degrees in veterinary science and bioethics, as well as a PhD, James is experienced in ensuring the welfare of all animals. He is also a Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Registered Specialist in animal welfare, science, ethics and law and a Diplomate of the RCVS and the European College of Animal Welfare and Behavioural Medicine.

He has been at the RSPCA since 2012 and owns a tortoiseshell cat called Monkey.

He said: “It is a great opportunity to join such an amazing organisation as Cats Protection and also a profound honour to join with such inspiring people – volunteers and staff. To be part of that is such a privilege.”

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and operates through a national network of more than 250 volunteer-run branches and 36 adoption centres.
