Doting mum Booker found dumped with her kittens
THIS litter of four tiny kittens and their young mum were dumped outside an RSPCA charity shop in Pinner in a sealed cardboard box.
One-year-old Booker was abandoned on Monday February 2, along with her four kittens Paige, Ink, Font and Print who are thought to be around six weeks old.
A member of the public saw a man acting suspiciously, who dropped the cardboard box outside the shop door and then ran off. When he went over to investigate he heard a scuffling and opened it up to find a mother cat and kittens.
Aileen Scheers, from the RSPCA Middlesex North West Branch said: “It is irresponsible and frankly cruel to dump a pet, and I dread to think what could have happened to them. Even dumping animals where you think they will be found is unacceptable. The RSPCA have come across cases where kittens have been used as dog fighting bait, or who’ve simply starved to death.
“However, in this case I am pleased to say that in this case both mum and kittens are okay, and will be looking for a new home soon.”
Doting mother Booker, and her kittens are all thankfully doing well after their ordeal. She was quite nervous at first, but over the past few days has grown in confidence and is a really loving cat. In a few weeks’ time, both mum and her kittens will be looking for their forever home, and we need your help to rehome them. If you, or anyone you know is thinking of having a pet cat, please encourage them to contact the RSPCA – there are too many cats in our care we will be able to find one to suit every owner.
Please call 020 8966 9688 or email info@ rspcamiddlesex.org.uk if you would like to adopt Booker or any of her kittens.
