Youngsters at a pre-school were given a talk on caring for cats by staff from Downham’s Cat Protection Centre.

Becky Cavanagh was invited to speak to youngsters at the Tiddly Potts Nursery at Holly Meadows School.

During the session, Miss Cavanagh outlined how to care for cats along with testing youngsters’ knowledge.

She said: “I had a brilliant time and they were a really good group.”

The shelter had recently put out an appeal through the Lynn News to find homes for scores of black or black and white cats.

Luckily most of the cats have now been re-homed but sadly Pencil, an older black cat, is still at the shelter after more than 107 days.

Miss Cavanagh said: “We had a really positive response from the article. But Pencil is still here. He needs a special home with lots of freedom maybe a farm or stable yard.”
