More cats abandoned in the UK

Animal charities have reported a steep increase in the numbers of abandoned cats and kittens being dumped at their rescue centres.
Wood Green, Blue Cross and the Cats' Protection League said their Cambridgeshire shelters are all full.
They have stressed the importance of neutering cats and kittens.
Alan Maskell, from Blue Cross said: "Some people say that neutering is too expensive, but there's a lot of help out there if you can't afford it."
"There are around 10 million cats in the UK and that's too many," Alan said.
"There's no need for there to be so many cats around, and we're really struggling to cope with the unwanted ones.
