CHRISTMAS has come early for eager pet owners in Ipswich - with adult cats available for adoption for just $20 for the rest of the year.

All RSPCA Shelters are bursting with adult cats and now the kitten breeding season has started as well.

Spokesman Michael Beatty said the shelter would be talking to people and making sure they're going to the right homes for the right reasons - and of course they're all de-sexed and micro-chipped.

This is not the first time that the RSPCA has been forced to take "drastic" measures because there was almost "no room at the inn".

"Our fears that some people might just be taking the cats because they were cheap proved unfounded," Mr Beatty said.

"People who had been thinking about getting a cat anyway just decided to take advantage of the offer.

"The number of cats being surrendered down the track was negligible.

"We're also ensuring that the cats entering the community are de-sexed which is very important," he said.
