New names and new homes needed after al­ley cats res­cue

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

LAST WEEK, our staff had to step in to save three seven-weekold kit­tens after they were found dumped in an al­ley­way in Rayn­ers Lane by a mem­ber of the pub­lic.

Th­ese cute black and white kit­tens – two girls and one boy – will be look­ing for a new home in the next few weeks.

The lit­tle mites were given food and wa­ter and taken straight to the vet’s for a check-up.

“The tiny lit­tle things are a lit­tle frightened but oth­er­wise un­scathed by their or­deal,” said Aileen Scheers of the North West Mid­dle­sex RSPCA.

“They seemed fine, they were eat­ing and drink­ing prop­erly straight away and were very play­ful and brighteyed, which is a good sign.

“Hope­fully they weren’t out on their own for more than a cou­ple of hours.

“I can’t un­der­stand why some­one would dump liv­ing things as if they were rub­bish.”

Now we are ask­ing all our Face­book fol­low­ers to help us name the kit­tens.

There have been sug­ges­tions from Top Cat, Benny and Choo Choo, to Bar­bara, Belinda and Basil.

You too can make sug­ges­tions by search­ing ‘RSPCA North West Mid­dle­sex’ on Face­book or tweet your ideas, @ RSP­CAMid­dle­sex.

Th­ese lit­tle chaps are prob­a­bly the re­sult of an un­wanted lit­ter, and Aileen has urged lo­cal peo­ple to make sure their pets are neutered.

“We are see­ing such a high num­ber of kit­tens com­ing into our care and we would like to re­mind peo­ple to get their cats neutered.

“So many peo­ple think an un­wanted lit­ter won’t hap­pen to them, or that it’s easy to find homes for kit­tens.

“It re­ally isn’t, and so of­ten ad­ver­tis­ing ‘free to a good home’ means kit­tens end up in the wrong hands – even used in dog bait­ing”.

If you would like to adopt a kit­ten, this lit­ter is a lit­tle bit too young just yet, but Toad, Frog, Tad­pole, Newt and Min­now, who were hand reared by an­i­mal wel­fare of­fi­cer Tracey Deamer and who ap­peared in a pre­vi­ous col­umn, are now look­ing for their

branch ‘for­ever homes’.

“They are so friendly, and com­pletely adorable. They will all make won­der­ful fam­ily pets,” said Tracey.
