Dot­ing mum Booker found dumped with her kit­tens

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.

If you can­not adopt, but would like to help your lo­cal RSPCA to care for aban­doned an­i­mals in their care, please make a do­na­tion to­day.

If you can make a do­na­tion, please call Aileen on 020 8429 5604, visit our web­site www.rspca-mid­dle­sex.org.uk or send a do­na­tion to RSPCA Mid­dle­sex North West Branch, 114 Field End Road, East­cote, Mid­dle­sex, HA5 1RL.
