AN ANIMAL rehoming centre has launched a two-pronged charity drive in a bid to rehome a large number of cats and raise money for animals’ operations.

Suffolk and Essex Small Animal Welfare (Sesaw) has seen a recent influx of black – and black and white – cats and kittens, and is keen to rehome them.

It also has some animals waiting for operations to help them lead better lives, including Phoebe the pug, who is waiting for an op to help her breathe a little easier.

Tomorrow night, at The George in Hintlesham, the charity is holding a Mauritian evening to raise funds for the operations and waitress Lizzie Ferdinando is donating her evening’s wages to the cause.

Tickets for the event, which includes authentic Mauritian food, Creole music and dancing, cost £12 and are available from 01473 652408.

Sesaw owner Maggie Jackaman said some of the younger cats were now six-months-old, having been born at the shelter.

“If you are considering a new companion, please consider some of our cats,” she said.

“In particular, we have many black and black and white cats which seem to be overlooked in favour of the other prettier cats.”
