Dubbed Operation Purr-exit, more than 100 cats at Venture Farm Cat Rescue, in Mattishall, were moved into a brand new cattery on Thursday.

The new complex, which includes isolation pens and heated indoor areas for the cats, were paid for by public donations.

Boris Johnson, Jacob-Rees Moggie and Jeremy Clawbyn were some of the first cats to move in.

Hazel Hatton, one of the trustees at Venture, said: "It was a coincidence that we decided to move the cats in on October 31, we couldn't help but call it Purr-exit.

"The were at crisis point with leaks, it has been a stressful day but 100pc worth it as the cats will be happy here."

Venture Farm will be closed on Friday, November 1 so the cats can settle into their new environment.
