Battersea’s cattery team leader, Chrissie Lloyd-Smith, said: “Cats scratch to mark their territory, exercise their muscles and just for sheer pleasure, so why not mix that natural instinct with a bit of fun.

“The DJ deck spins as the cat scratches so this creative new cat enrichment tool is a great way to support our budding cat stars as they exhibit their natural behaviour.

“We hope the house tunes our funky felines have been making leads them to their very own homes where they can continue making sweet music and bringing their Battersea beats to life.”

Chrissie said: “Our musical moggies have had a pawsome time celebrating World DJ Day, some creating catchy beats and others going for the chillout vibe and preferring to catnap on their new turntables.”
