Kittens are feline ready for a royally good owner
A litter of kittens born at a cat charity were hoping the weekend's royal celebrations would mark a change in their luck.
Union, Jack, Diamond, Jubilee and Bunting have been cared for at Cats Protection's National Cat Adoption Centre since their birth on May 6.
Their mother Taura, a stray cat, was taken in to the site in Chelwood Gate after being found wandering the streets of nearby Uckfield.
The three boys and two girls have had their temporary home decorated in bunting, in the hope new owners are found to complete their rags to riches story.
Tania Marsh, deputy manager at the centre, said: "Poor Taura was found wandering the streets of Uckfield, heavily pregnant and clearly in discomfort.
"When she had her kittens we realised they would be ready to find new homes shortly after the Jubilee celebrations so we thought they deserved some names fit for royalty.
"Taura is very young herself – we think she must only be about 12 months old – so she really needs a special home where she'll be treated like a princess."
To offer a home to any of the kittens or to mum Taura, contact the National Cat Adoption Centre on 01825 741330 .
