FOUR cats at an animal centre in South Mimms are looking for a 'purrfect' new home.

Currently residing at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre, the friendly felines are in desperate need of a new start, home and family.

Sheba and Hobo, both elderly cats, arrived at the animal care home in January in a sorry state.

Sheba is completely blind and, although she does manage very well, she will need a kind and considerate owner.

Joe, too, arrived at the Packhorse Lane animal centre in January and currently holds the title for being the biggest cat at the animal sanctuary.

His tale is different from the other cats as he was treated lovingly by his elderly owner, who unfortunately had to give him up when she went into care.

Princess is a five-year-old semi-shorthaired domestic cat.

She arrived at RSPCA Southridge in April, having been found in a very poor condition wandering around the streets.

During her treatment to bring her back to health, the vets discovered she has a heart condition that requires a very low dose of daily medication for the rest of her life.

A spokesman for the animal care home told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times: "With so many younger cats for people to choose from it is incredibly hard for us to find a home for Sheba and Hobo, a very special pair of cats.

"Joe is not always easy to handle, but he's a lovely cat who needs a kind and understanding owner while he settles.

"Princess is sweet natured, friendly and affectionate and will make a wonderful family pet.

"She has had no one to care for her for a long time and deserves a new start and a new life."

If you can give any of the cats a home call RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre on 0300 123 0704.

Alternatively you can visit Sheba, Hobo, Joe and Princess at the care home open every day, except Wednesdays, from 11am until 4.15pm.

It is now open until 7.30pm on Thursdays throughout the summer.
