Experts will be on hand at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home’s annual kitten shower to highlight the importance of neutering in order to avoid the rise in unwanted kittens.
This year’s event will take place from 10.30am to 2pm on Thursday July 24.
Sakura Anderson, the home’s cattery team leader, said the influx was due to the high numbers of unneutered cats in the capital.
She said: “It’s vital we show animal lovers how many homeless cats and kittens are looking for homes and how important it is to neuter your cat so we can reduce the growing population of unwanted animals.”
The event will also include games, crafts and kitten creches.
Tickets are available from the London centre on the day of the event, and cost £5 for adults and £3 for children under 16. Children under three can visit for free.
