ANIMAL workers are appealing for cat lovers in East London to welcome a homeless feline.
The 145 cat pens at Battersea Cats Home are full to bursting with 174 moggies on the 'housing waiting list' to come into the shelter.
There has been a nine per cent drop in rehoming cats in contrast with the 20 per cent increase in demand for dogs.
The centre's 'cat rehomer' Ros Davies said: "Summer is traditionally a busier time for us because the warmer weather means there are more kittens brought in.
"But the nine per cent drop in rehoming figures has taken us by surprise."
It has left the animal shelter with a large cats and kittens looking for new homes, loke Tabby and Giner (pictured), two kitties looking for loving homes. But there are cats of all ages, from kittens to mature, all colours, all hair length and all personalities.
