Most of the cats were strays, although the shelter has had a sudden rise in population because of a longer birth cycle this year.
She said: "Some of them have been abandoned in boxes, or they have been left with us.
"They can have kittens any time of the year, but they normally have them in the spring. This year, we've had births right up to autumn.
"We have a wide selection of pretty cats and kittens, which are a strain on the shelter's resources. We are appealing for people to take them home."
She encouraged owners to get their cats neutered to prevent them from having kittens due to the over population.
Ms Barron added: "There is a problem with cats over population, and we are trying to tackle it the best we can."
Anyone who wants to adopt a cat or kitten can drop in at the animal shelter in Gardner's Lane, Cheltenham.
