Charity hopes to find homes for kittens abandoned on Christmas Eve - by naming them after Star Wars characters

The seven kittens were left at London’s Wood Green Animal Charity on 24 December.

STAR WARS MANIA has been a global epidemic for over a week now since the release of the new movie.

Now an English animal charity is hoping to tap into the power of the Force and use it to re-home seven kitten brothers and sisters that were abandoned on Christmas Eve.

The seven cats, four female and three male, were left at the Wood Green Animals Charity in London on 24 December.

So the charity has done the logical thing and named the seven for Star Wars characters in the hope of rehoming them in the new year.

It seems that within minutes of being left with the charity the seven kittens were gleefully playing with wrapping-paper cardboard tube inserts, which reminded the amused staff of lightsabers.

There’s definitely a likeness with some of the seven:

Others maybe not so much.

Ten out of ten for cuteness though.
