Your help is desperately needed for a Liverpool cat charity who are in danger of having to close.
Liverpool Cat Welfare are a small, non-profit charity who rescue, neuter and rehome unwanted cats and kittens in the area, as well as feeding and neutering feral colonies and caring for poorly cats, all run by their dedicated volunteers.
But their hard work is under threat as the roof of the charity's isolation unit needs replacing and developed leaks, which got more severe over time and has now reached the status of being condemned. You can see the damage in the above picture.
Spokesman Collette Basley says: "Replacing the roof is going to be extremely expensive and in excess of £10,000, this is due to the fact the roof contains asbestos, the removal and disposal of which can only be done by a licensed roofer and is imperative if we are to ensure the safety of the cats, volunteers and visitors alike and provide continuity of our charities prime objectives."
Liverpool Cat Welfare also have to rehome their 70 cats and kittens as possible before any work can be carried out. One such cat is four-year-old Woody, pictured, who has been in the care of Liverpool Cat Welfare for almost two years, a mystery to volunteers as they say he is a very affectionate and friendly boy.
