Staff at a Nantwich cattery are pleading for new homes for abandoned or unwanted cats.

Lee Stewart, manager of Stapeley Grange RSPCA centre on London Road, said the cattery is full because the population is spiralling out of control.

They say the problem is being caused by lack of neutering by cat owners.

This is despite a drive by the RSPCA to provide subsidised neutering schemes.

Lee Stewart, RSPCA Stapeley Grange managerCattery manager Lee (pictured) said: “The reason the society is in a cat crisis at the moment, is the fact we are having too many coming in to our facilities and we’re not able to re-home as many as we would like.

“The main reason for this is the financial situation where many people can’t actually afford to look after their cats properly.

“Or they may not afford to have them neutered which is leading to further issues with kittens being born so there is more out there that are coming in to the society and we’re finding it more difficult to re-home our cats and kittens.”
