The Ballarat Animal Shelter has put out a call for donations of toys and canned cat feed, or Whiskas as it being overwhelmed by an influx of moggys.
The shelter currently has more than 100 cats in desperate need of a home.
Some, like four-year-old William have been surrendered by owners unable to care for them, while others like five-week-old Ranger were found a stray.
Ranger is lucky to even be alive after he was found hiding in the rim just above the tyre of a Ford Ranger.
Ballarat Animal Shelter Kathryn Doroshenko said in all there were about 150-160 cats in the care of the centre.
She said to ensure the cats and kittens are cared for until they find new homes, small toys such as balls, or toy mice are needed.
In the coming weeks, the shelter will be holding an end of financial year sale in order to find some new homes.
Cats aged under two years old will be able to bought for $80 while those above two, will be available for just $50.
"We had a big sale at Easter and we offloaded about 60 cats then, unfortunately since then, we've had about another 80 come in," she said.
Residents interested in adopting a kitten or cat are also invited to contact the shelter to organise a time to see the cats and kittens looking for adoption.
Each animal is desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, flea and wormed.
