THE RSPCA has revealed there were 8,098 calls coming through to its cruelty line in Wales last year with concerns for the welfare of cats - which is almost one every hour.

Of those calls, 100 came from Ceredigion; 395 came from Carmarthenshire and 275 from Pembrokeshire.

Across England and Wales the charity received more than 100,000 calls and rescues more cats than any other animal, whether this is moggies stuck in tight spots, to cats that have been abandoned or neglected and abused.

RSPCA Bryn-Y-Maen Animal Centre in Upper Colwyn Bay currently has 27 cats looking for homes.

One of them is the handsome little Hector. The black and white three-year-old is a sweet lad, although he is a little timid. To arrange to meet Hector contact the centre on 0300 123 0745 - which is open 11am to 4pm except Wednesdays.
