Furry felines who have been rescued by the RSPCA are looking for homes in the Daventry area.

A number of cats are currently in foster care and looking for their forever homes.

Emma Markham, adoptions manager for the Northampton branch of the RSPCA, said: “The majority of the animals in our care come via the inspectorate and have often been subjected to abandonment, cruelty, neglect or abuse.

“We also take in animals from local vets whose owners cannot afford the veterinary treatment, or they may be injured strays. We not only rescue these animals, but we rehabilitate them and get them ready for rehoming.”

Many of the cats that have rescued have been involved in road accidents and need extensive surgery to mend fractures.

Emma added: “We are a small local, independent charity who rely solely on public donations, and these are vital to help us continue with our work.

“We are now in the midst of ‘kitten season’ and have many kittens and cats looking for new homes. Unfortunately, the adult cats tend to get overlooked during this time.”

They have 68 cats and kittens. New owners have to pay £65 for their felines, who are neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.

They are all flea and worm treated, health checked by a vet and come with four weeks’ free insurance.
