Hearts and homes needed for these long-stay cats this Valentine's Day.

Doesn’t everyone deserve to be loved on Valentine’s Day?

These poor cats have been in the care of Cats Protection for months and months, overlooked by prospective adopters while others are chosen and taken to new happy homes.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “It’s a complete mystery why these cats have not yet been adopted as each of them has a wonderful and unique quality to offer. A host of research also shows that owning a cat can be good for the health and happiness of people of all ages and from all walks of life. Owning a cat can make men more attractive to women, help children to feel more confident about themselves and provide older people with companionship.”

Can we find these cats new homes?
