A Cambridgeshire animal rescue centre says it's seeing more cats being abandoned in life-threatening conditions.
Staff at Wood Green near Huntingdon told ITV News Anglia, that despite easy access to help and advice, people are still dumping unwanted pets and putting their lives at risk and that there seems to be no sign of a decrease in cases.

Staff say they have seen many examples of cats and kittens being dumped; including a litter of kittens discovered by staff at a recycling centre in Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire.
The kittens had been spotted moments before the rubbish they were in was due to be crushed.
The litter of five had been put in a cardboard box and dumped in a skip.
They were taken to Wood Green near Huntingdon to be looked after, but one of the kittens died soon after.
The other four have now been re-homed including Maurice and Mimi who have settled into family life quite well.
Tinsel was abandoned while pregnant and was found by the A1198 at Caxton in November last year.
She went on to have a litter of five which have all been re-homed, the last one to leave is Twinkle who also has a family waiting for her.
