"Purdy," one of the cats up for adoption on Saturday (March 4).

Adoptions Manager, Emma Markham, said: “We’re looking forward to welcoming lots of people this weekend to our event who are looking to add a new cat or rabbit to their family. Not only that but they can enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake at the same time. What could be better?

"Fingers crossed we can find homes for lots of cats and rabbits this weekend so they can have the best second chance in life with a new family.”

Potential adopters are asked to ensure any existing cats or rabbits in their household must be neutered.
