The Numbers: Cats Protection

The figures behind the charity that provides rehoming and neutering services for felines.

£34.7m - The charity's income for the year ending 31 December 2009. It was £36.5m in 2008.

£3.92m - The cost of generating voluntary income. The charity raised £19.2m, giving it a fundraising ratio of 20p in the pound, the same as the previous year.

£17.6m - Free reserves at year-end, equal to five months' unrestricted expenditure - roughly the charity's target.

£100k - No employee was paid more than this.

£4m - The approximate amount received to date from the administrators of the failed Icelandic bank Kaupthing Singer & Friedlander, with which the charity had £11.2m deposited. Between 65 and 78 per cent will eventually be returned, say administrators.

256 - The number of volunteer-led branches the charity operates in the UK. It also has 29 cat adoption centres and one homing centre.

215,000 - The number of cats helped by the charity in 2008/09. About 55,000 lost cats were rehomed or reunited with their owners. It neutered 163,000 and currently has 7,000 in its day-to-day care.
