This photo presents just a portion of the squalid house in north Kent that 16 cats were left to fester in.

The cats were rescued from the shocking conditions by the RSPCA who are looking for loving new homes for them.

Having never been allowed outside, the vulnerable cats are incredibly nervous and will need indoor homes where they can gain their confidence slowly.

Their lack of care has led to every one of the cats carrying the contagious cat flu virus meaning they cannot go to live with other cats.

RSPCA inspector Becky Timberlake said: “Some of these cats are timid at first, but then become more friendly. Others like being picked up for a cuddle and a fuss. They have all had a really difficult start in life, so if someone wants to do something amazing and adopt a cat that really needs their help, then these are the cats for sure.”

To offer a home to one of the 16 cats ring the RSPCA on 01732 849352.
