A Scottish woman ended up with 28 cats after being unable to get her pets neutered during the coronavirus pandemic. The woman, from Edinburgh, owned a pair of cats but couldn't find a vet able to neuter them during Covid as most businesses were closed to the public.

The pair bred, eventually leaving the woman with 26 kittens. Nicola Zelent, who is a warden at Lothian Cat Rescue, told Edinburgh Live : "The lady started with two cats but couldn't get them neutered and tried to keep them separate, but because they were indoor they began to breed. "It got to the stage where the situation was out of control and she couldn't find any vets in Edinburgh to neuter the cats as most vets were closed and only offering emergency care.

She had no idea about Lothian Cat Rescue or any other services that could help. "She was absolutely mortified and ended up with her original two cats and 26 kittens.
