Over 100 cats currently in the care of the ISPCA are in desperate need of finding a new home.
This year alone 351 cats and kittens have been successfully rehomed from the ISPCA. A whopping 207 of these cats came from an ex-research facility, 144 of which were seized or surrendered to the ISPCA inspectors.
Now just 50 cats remain at the ex-research facility, and the ISPCA hope to remove and rehome them before the Christmas holidays.
ISPCA Centre Manager, Eva Ellis said: "These adorable cats will make wonderful pets plus they are naturally independent making them perfect companions for people with busy lifestyles."

"They love nothing more than to sit on a lap and be cuddled plus the mere act of stroking a cat has been known to release endorphins in our brain associated with well-being and happiness, linked to lowering blood pressure as well as lowering the risk of heart disease."
The charity is appealing for anyone considering buying a new pet, to adopt one of their animals instead.
Eva added: "We are however struggling to find new owners to adopt these gorgeous cats and with so many in our care, we are under pressure to find room to take in an additional 50 cats due to be removed from ex research laboratory by the end of December."
All cats have been fully vaccinated, checked and treated for parasites and vet checked. They are also either neutered or spayed, as well as being fully litter trained.
