There are 13 black kittens on Friday the 13th

IT may be a coincidence on Friday the 13th, but there are 13 black cats looking for the purr-fect home at the Hervey Bay Animal Refuge at Nikenbah.  

Volunteer Sarada Ikin said the refuge had been taking care of an unusually high number of cats since before Christmas last year.

"We have 13 cats, an unlucky number, we're full," Sarada said.

"There are people ringing every day, since Christmas we've been completely full, so it must be a good breeding season."

She said unless the cats and kittens currently living a the refuge were re-homed, no more could be taken in.

"We are completely full," she said.

"We just have to turn them away…we give these people other options to where they can take the cats, but it's not just one that they want to give us, it's three or four."
