EIGHT-year-olds Lily Reynolds and Eleanor Cooke were given the opportunity to name three kittens when they visited the St Neots branch of Cats Protection.

The Eynesbury Primary School pupils named the kittens Bess, Buster and Bibble.

The animal charity has been running a naming scheme with the school to introduce cat care to the children.

Cats Protection spokesman, Dawn Cooke, said: "There is a problem with stray and domestic cats not being neutered, and then having too many kittens.

"These unwanted kittens end up homeless, particularly during spring and summer, so we want to educate the children at a young age to help prevent this happening."

Bess, Buster and Bibble are now looking for new homes.
