A cat rescue centre has appealed for much-needed food donations amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Feline Care, which is based in East Harling and has charity shops in Attleborough and Diss, says it is in “desperate need” of food, especially tinned products.
The shortage has largely been brought about by the COVID-19 outbreak, which has had a significant impact on deliveries in recent days.
The centre was also forced to cancel its Easter open day, its biggest event of the year and a major source of donations.

Feline Care currently has more than 130 cats in its care and, with several sanctuaries in the area having closed their doors, is anticipating an influx of hungry cats.
It is also short of wood chip cat litter, old towels, thick bleach, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and dishwasher consumables.
Anna Lancaster, who works at the centre, will be at AW Myhills in Attleborough from 9-11am every weekday morning to accept donations, which should be left outside to avoid social contact.
