Four cats have new homes and another four could soon be ‘feline’ equally happy as potential owners have expressed an interest in them.

The re-homing happened at Ely and District Cats Protection’s 22nd annual cat show and homing day on Saturday.

The event, which was held at Little Downham Village Hall, raised over £1,100 for Ely Cats Protection.

The money will be used not only to pay for running costs such as food and vets’ bills but also to continue the “Neuter your Cat for £5” campaign for people on low incomes.

Winner of the Best in Show non-pedigree was Abbs, a black male owned by David Rolph from Hockwold and the pedigree was Merlin, a tabby male owned by Gloria Neal from Newmarket,
