A couple from Willesden are looking for new homes for four adorable kittens after a stray cat they took in surprised them by giving birth to the fluffy litter eight weeks ago.

Derek Ogbourne and his partner Susana Medina of Teignmouth Road, are looking for kind owners to take the three stripy black kittens and their tabby sister off their hands after their flat became overrun with the tiny creatures.

The couple took in the tabby, who they called Little One, as their own after finding her “starving and licking the floor for salt” outside their home.

It was just months before they realized Little One was expecting her brood.

Mr Ogbourne said: “We’re looking for committed owners to buy the kittens from us in the next few weeks.

“We didn’t realise she was pregnant at first and then we noticed she had a bulging belly. We don’t know who the father is but daddy is probably a local cat.

“Initially the kittens were so cute we didn’t think about selling them but we have another cat who is starting to get annoyed by having this group of little trapeze artists jumping about.

“Little One keeps on bringing in dead rats and birds for them and I’ve had to save a few mice, so we decided it was time to find them a home.”
