Winter is well and truly here, and what better way to counteract the cold than by adopting a wee furry friend to cuddle up to on the couch.
Auckland cat rescue organisation Lonely Miaow is holding their annual adopt-a-thon this weekend, so head along and meet some of the adorable rescued cats and kittens.
Each of the four-legged cuties pictured above is in need of a loving home - how could you possibly resist?
If you'd like to meet any of the cats and kittens prior to the event, visit http://lonelymiaow.co.nz/available-cats-and-kittens now.
The adopt-a-thon event takes place on Sunday 18 May at Grey Lynn Library, 474 Great North Road, Auckland and also includes a sausage sizzle, colouring in competition and raffles.
Lonely Miaow is a cat rescue charity dedicated to saving and rehoming strays in the greater Auckland area.
2010 marks 150 years since the formation of the first militia units in Southland and Otago.
