Luxury hotel for abandoned moggies - SEE VIDEO

Waiting for Video...

With Sky TV, comfy beds and a private garden, Woodland Nook is more like a luxury hotel than a rescue centre.

But the bungalow in Swanwick is home to 17 abandoned or unwanted moggies who deserve a bit of pampering while they wait for new homes.

Jane Lynegar, 51, who runs the centre with a team of volunteers, has been rescuing cats for 21 years.

The bungalow was built at the bottom of her garden, in Delves Bank Road, and has its own fitted kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, television lounge, central heating and a garden with a Wendy house and drinking fountains.

Residents enjoy listening to the radio, watching television and eating a menu of fresh tuna and roast chicken.

As Jane talks about the cats it is clear she adores all of them, but the ultimate goal is to find them new homes.

“At the end of the day the reward is to get them all a home but in the meantime they are enjoying the lap of luxury.”

Jane has also been involved in rescuing cats from Crete.

Jane said: “So far we have rescued ten and managed to rehome all of them. Cats are treated as vermin in Greece and they roam around the bins trying to get scraps. They are often very cruelly treated.”

Current residents include 15-year-old Lilly who is deaf and has arthritis.
