Cat call

The Mayhew Animal Home was inundated with 150 cats when it took in a house-full of felines that had been accumulated by an elderly couple in London. The charity has so far raised £6,000 of the £45,000 needed to care for the biggest intake of animals in its 117-year history. The care costs for each cat amount to £287, and all 150 have now been treated for fleas, wormed and neutered after the charity bought and was donated large stocks of materials. Caroline Yates, the charity's head of fundraising, praised media coverage, which has already helped to house some of the cats and raised the London-based charity's profile nationally and abroad.
