Chatter box Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Old Windsor is celebrating 35 years of rescuing and rehoming thousands of dogs and cats in Surrey and Berkshire by holding a garden tea party for local animal lovers.

The event on Saturday 20 September marks 35 years since Battersea took over Bell Mead Boarding and Grooming Kennels in 1979.

Kaye Mughal, Battersea Old Windsor's centre manager, said: "I feel privileged to work for Battersea at Old Windsor and proud that we have helped so many animals over the last 35 years. We have seen our fair share of desperate cases in need of help, and found thousands of dogs and cats new homes to call their own."

The event runs from 12pm to 4pm and will include tea, cakes and games for all the family. For more information visit www.battersea.org.uk/oldwindsor  Chatter box

Two-headed tortoise born in Denmark

A two-headed tortoise has been born in Denmark.

Vets at a Danish reptile clinic were presented with the rare sight, just one day old, on September 9.

The tortoise suffers from a condition known as polycephaly, which occurs when identical twins fail to separate before birth. According to the Telegraph tortoises with the condition are said to be able to survive the condition without difficulty.

A video of the tortoise has been posted to YouTube. To view the video visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pcn9w96iOs
