Thirty cats saved from "cramped and squalid" conditions in Aberdeen have found new homes thanks to an appeal.

The BBC Scotland news website told last year how all the animals were extremely thin and several had health problems.
Volunteers from Cats Protection had collected the animals at the request of their owner.
One kitten died but the other 30 were nursed back to health. They were neutered and vaccinated and have now all been re-homed.
One, Tiggy, was adopted by David and Helen Redwood, from Aberdeen.
Mrs Redwood explained: "We have a cat, Chong, who was feeling sad ever since our other cat passed away.
"We felt Tiggy's bouncy and playful nature would lift his spirits, and it has done the trick.
"Chong and Tiggy happily play together all day and curl up next to each other at night."
Two others, Little Pie and Mr Dawson, were adopted by Scott and Alison Robson, from Glasgow.

Mrs Robson explained: "We had been looking for a pair of cats and these two really attracted us as they seemed so shy.
"When we got them home, they initially hid behind furniture and would only come out for food.
"However, they have grown in confidence as we have got to know them."
Tracy Shiells, the charity's regional development manager, said: "I'm really pleased that these cats have got the happy ending that they deserve.
"However, this case underlines the need for owners to provide their cats with a safe, clean and healthy home environment and to take them to the vet regularly."
