AN ANIMAL shelter is appealing for help in re-homing some of its long term residents this Christmas.
Wood Green Animal Shelter at Heydon has a number of older and special cats it would like to see re-homed.
Alice Naylor, animal re-homer at the shelter, said: "Most of the cats are very friendly with humans, and would suit any type of loving home.
"The ones we have most difficulty finding new owners for are those who are a bit older, or who have had medical problems.
"For example we have Kimber, who is seven and has lost one eye.
"He absolutely hates other cats, so would have to be homed in a rural area where there aren't any others around.

"However, he is absolutely 100 per cent affectionate with humans."
Other long-term residents at the shelter include Tia and Guinea, both of which have suffered from skin problems in the past.
"They get on very well, so could be homed together or separately," said Alice.
Anyone who is interested in adopting these cats, or any of the others that are housed at Wood Green, should call the shelter on 08701 909099, or visit their premises at Chishill Road, Heydon, to speak to a member of staff.
The shelter is hoping to raise funds at a carol concert at Heydon church on Wednesday.
A collection will be taken to support the work of Wood Green. The evening begins at 7.45pm.
