These purrfect cuties need loving homes

It may be early into kitten season, but an RSPCA centre in west Norfolk is already caring for three litters which arrived over the last few weeks.
The 12 kittens and their mothers were all handed over to the animal charity in difficult circumstances, but are recovering well and ready for new homes.
At the moment, they are being looked after at the West Norfolk RSPCA Rehoming Centre, in Tilney All Saints, near King's Lynn.
Penny Skate, volunteer and manager, said: 'All mums and babies are doing absolutely fine.
'This is a popular time of year for the kittens to start arriving, but these have come to us particularly early in the season.'

She added: 'Cats are beautiful animals, but the public needs to realise there are too many cats in the world and they need to be neutered – preferably as soon as the kitten has been weaned from its mother.' Sandra and her four kittens were found in a supermarket box in woodland at Fairstead, in King's Lynn, on April 22.
A week later, the second set to arrive were Molly and her four little ones after their owner was unwell and unable to look after them.

The RSPCA is running a cat neutering and spaying scheme until the end of May. It costs £10, and includes microchipping.
