The Norwich and District branch of Cats Protection is struggling to find new owners for some of its older cats.
Maureen Bennett, co-ordinator of the Norwich and District branch, said: “Sadly when choosing a cat most people want to adopt kittens.
“Because of this we often have beautiful older cats which are overlooked and result in some of these being in our fostering pens for long periods of time lacking the human contact and freedom they all deserve.
“We have three in particular with our fosters in the Norwich area.”
The cat pictured here is called Jess and is currently being fostered in Strumpshaw, while two others, Max and Moth, are being fostered in Hempnall.
Ms Bennett added: “Jess is a six-year-old black and white female cat. Jess is a friendly cat who needs an understanding home, as she was abandoned by her previous owners and was found living in a cardboard box.
“Jess is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and can use a litter tray. Jess has been with Cats Protection for six months and desperately needs a new home.”
Moth is a 10-year-old black and white cat who was passed to Cats Protection after her elderly owners died, and has been medically examined, spayed, vaccinated, and microchipped.
While Max is around six years old and has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and blood tested.
