An animal charity is still appealing for more people to give its cats a home despite a recent increase.
The Stamford and District branch of Cats Protection made an initial appeal through the pages of the Mercury last month after becoming inundated with abandoned animals.
Lots of readers responded and since the article about 20 cats have been rehomed.
But the charity still has more cats than it can cope with and has issued a fresh appeal for new homes for its animals.
Branch co-ordinator Elaine Wigginton said: “The response to the last article was brilliant. But we have still got a lot left.
“We now have eight cats up for rehoming and we have a waiting list as well. Until we do some homing we can’t take any more cats.”
One of the cats who has been looking for a home for months is four-year-old Tassie, pictured right.
Elaine said: “He is a lovely cat but he just gets overlooked.”
The branch is currently looking for homes for cats aged between two and eight years old.
