"By doing this you will give an animal that really needs one a home and you will not be adding to the numbers of cats around."

If you adopt a kitten from the animal centre the adoption fee includes the neutering operation, microchipping, a full veterinary check, worming and flea treatment and, if they are old enough, their vaccinations.

To find out more call the centre on 0300 123 0704.

Alternatively you can visit the kittens 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.
