100+ cats in need of homes

MORE than 100 needy cats and kittens have prompted a North Somerset animal charity to appeal for help.

Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary in Barrow Gurney has become overrun by the huge numbers of felines being brought to its doors and is now in need of more people to come forward and offer them homes.

Charity founder Pauline Leeson said: “We have 45 cats and 62 kittens. We are looking for homes for all of them.

“One of our cats is due to give birth to kittens in the next few weeks and we already have one pen with 16 kittens in it.

“We never refuse a pregnant or nursing cat or dog.

Holly Hedge funds the veterinary bills of all the animals it takes in, some of which arrive without being neutered or vaccinated.
