The centre's cattery is currently full with 85 cats and kittens. Others are in foster homes and private boarding while the charity's inspectors continue to rescue injured and abandoned cats on a daily basis.
We are asking potential owners to please 'paws' for thought and consider whether they could be a caring and responsible owner for one of our cats.
Looking after a cat is hugely rewarding and as long as they have a good diet, proper care and an interesting and comfy environment to engage with, a cat will quite happily play, snooze or while away the hours until their owner arrives back from work.
If you would like a bit of love on your return there are plenty of cuddlesome cats.
Even if you're not into displays of affection then we also have some felines who prefer to do their own thing, but would still be ever so grateful for a caring owner.
The current crisis is by no means unique to Birmingham. All RSPCA animal homes in the West Midlands are also full with cats, while branches from Staffordshire North to Gloucestershire are struggling to cope. EMMA FINNIMORE, RSCPA Birmingham
