Animal charities in southern Spain were urgently seeking homes for 110 cats on Saturday after they and their owner were evicted from a flat in the Valencia region.


SPAMA Safor, an animal shelter in the southeastern seaside town of Gandia, had initially thought there were only 96 cats in the flat. But by Saturday evening, the charity said it had removed a total of 110 cats and urgently needed help to shelter them at least until they are vaccinated or sterilized.


The cats had been left homeless after they and their owner were evicted from an apartment in the town measuring 100 square meters, they said.


"Apparently the owner took in a pair of cats three years ago and they have been procreating ever since," Salvadora Tormas, who works with the shelter, told AFP.


SPAMA Safor said it did not have enough space to take them all in as it was already housing some 200 cats.
