Can you offer any of these animals a home?

Four fluffy felines in Honiton are in need of new homes.

Honiton Cats Protection is currently looking for new owners to take on two six-month-old black kittens, who have been called Micky and Vicky.

“They are lovely, but they were born in a woodyard so they are a little bit shy and scared,” says Lizzie Manley, the co-ordinator of the Honiton Cats Protection branch. “The kittens would need to be homed together. They are very loving but hide when strangers are around and need a home with someone who has time and patience and a lot of love.”

Homes are also needed for two rather large tortie and white cats, who will need to be kept on a diet until their weight stablises.

“Again, lots of patience and commitment is needed,” adds Lizzie.

Anyone interested in giving these animals a home is urged to call Honiton Cats Protection on 01404 45241 for more information or visit
