Cat rescue centres have been inundated with calls thanks to an appeal in the Blackpool and Chorley Citizen.
In conjunction with Cat Rescue, a local stray cat sanctuary, the newspaper has been publishing individual profiles of homeless cats in their suppplement Bellissima.
The articles included photographs of the cats, descriptions of their personalities and a telephone number for readers to call if they could help.
The appeal has received a huge response which has allowed Cat Rescue to house some of the area’s most desperate cats.
Chairman Christine Ashton said: “We were delighted with the response to the article. We nearly cleared out all our pens.”
