Volunteers at Shropshire Cat Rescue in Bayston Hill have thanked members of the public for their generous contributions to building Johnny a new home, after they met their target in just four days.

Three-year-old Johnny came to Shropshire Cat Rescue in June from another rescue which was struggling to find him the home that he needed.

Watch Johnny get to grips with his castle - and our photographer Steve:

Volunteers say his desire to be outside meant he was becoming increasingly stressed - he started to overgroom and was breaking out of his fosterer's home to be outside.
