The charity and have teamed up to care for homeless cats and kittens until loving new homes can be found for them.

Cats will stay in five double pens at the college where students studying courses in animal care and management will look after them, supervised by the lecturing team, until forever homes can be found.

Katie Macalister, Regional Rehoming Network Manager at Blue Cross, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with Moreton Morrell College.

“Our partnerships with colleges give homeless cats the best chance of finding a new home, while helping students gain first-hand experience of looking after animals.

“It really is win-win for all of us - including the cats.”

Jade Fox, who is studying towards a Level 3 Animal Management qualification at the college said: “It is great having cats at the college.

“Helping them gives us the opportunity to put into practice everything that we are learning on our course.”
