A CATS’ charity is appealing for new owners for 12 cats in its care – including little Mojo here, who is being looked after by a volunteer in Sudbury.

Following a spate of arrivals in the run-up to Christmas, the Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury branch of national charity Cats Protection says its pens are full, leaving it unable to take in more homeless animals on its waiting list.

Spokeswoman Rebecca George said: “We are still receiving calls every day from people asking us to take their pets, or reporting stray cats in their area, but we need to find homes for the cats we already have.”

The Bury and Sudbury branch of the charity has five volunteers who foster cats before new owners are found.

In Sudbury, cat “foster mum” Rosemary Bullen, of Alexandra Road, is taking care of Mojo, a four-year-old brindle tortoiseshell who is looking for a home.

Other cats looking for homes are a five-year-old female black cat called Sooty, a five-year-old tabby cat called Hattie and a two-year-old silver grey tabby cat, Jamila.
