The Love Island kittens looking for a new home

An urgent appeal has been launched to find homes for abandoned kittens - who have been named after stars of this year's series of Love Island.

Ovie, Anton, Lucie and Yewande were taken in by the RSPCA with their mother Caroline.

They were only four weeks old when they were found in a garden.

The RSPCA has launched the appeal due to a lack of space at its Birmingham Animal Centre.

The centre has 61 cats up for adoption with others waiting to be moved in, but this won't be possible unless some space is freed up.

"When these poor kittens arrived they were all suffering from cat flu - which was quite severe. Thankfully they have now all recovered.

"Little Yewande was left with scarring to her left eye which may need to be removed in the future when she is a little older, but if she does the RSPCA will cover the cost of the operation.

"Hopefully after the holidays our re-homing will pick back up again but we have seen a huge fall in the number of cats leaving our centre but the amount needing to come in doesn’t change."

Another of the Love Island litter, Arabella, has been reserved and is due to be rehomed.
