An airline is offering free flights to people who adopt a kitten.

Frontier Airlines has announced it will give free flight vouchers to whoever adopts one of three kittens.

The ownerless cats, who were named after airlines, are currently living at a Las Vegas-based animal shelter.

Frontier, Spirit and Delta are recent arrivals at the Animal Foundation of Las Vegas, Nevada’s largest animal shelter.

Anyone who is able to give the cats a new home could find themselves and a friend whizzing around at 30,000 feet for free.

“We’d love to donate two flight vouchers each to the people who adopt @Delta and @Spirit; and four vouchers to the person who adopts Frontier,” the Denver-based carrier tweeted last week.

The vouchers have been delivered to the shelter, but won’t be distributed until the kittens are ready for adoption in about a month.

Frontier corporate communications director Jennifer de la Cruz said: “The kittens are a bit young to be adopted out yet, according to what the organization has indicated, but should be ready for adoption in a month or so.”

Those who love to travel and also love cats could do worse than visiting Marrakech in Morocco.

Like much of the Islamic world, the people of Marrakech love cats, who are generally admired for their cleanliness and considered "the quintessential pet".

It's a long held love which goes back at least as far as to the times of Muhammed, who forbade the persecution and killing of cats.

Marrakech's people go further than avoiding such nastiness and actively revere their whiskered pals.

The average alley way in the heart of the city will be filled with a clowder of at least four or five adult, adolescent and baby cats.

While they might not be as well groomed and shiny as their British counterparts, they are very friendly and always open to a cup of food which can be bought from most food stalls.

Before you spend your holiday stroking and petting as many lovely cats as you can, it's worth noting that rabies is present in Morocco.
