Allotments in Birmingham dating back to 1902 could be lost under bulldozers as part of the post-Commonwealth Games masterplan for Perry Barr.
Campaigners are gearing up for a fight after learning the much loved 121-plot site, which forms a green oasis in Perry Barr, is being considered for development in the aftermath of the Games.
They had previously been assured the allotments were not in danger.
A petition has nearly 7,000 signatures, calling on Birmingham City Council to protect the allotments from any Commonwealth Games developments.
Robert, one of the cats who lives at the allotment, is in on the campaign too.
He has his own twitter page with 4,500 followers.
His twitter handle is @allotmentcat and he updates it daily with details of how the campaign to save his home is going.
