Ev­ery sum­mer it rains kit­tens

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

AS hap­pens ev­ery year over spring and sum­mer months there is an ex­plo­sion in the cat pop­u­la­tion and many thou­sands of these have no home so end up in the care of an­i­mal res­cue char­i­ties such as our­selves.

We keep hop­ing that all the work done to get cats neutered and mi­crochipped will make a dif­fer­ence in re­duc­ing over-breed­ing and stray cats but sadly there are no signs this year of this hap­pen­ing yet.

At the Mid­dle­sex North West Branch of the RSPCA we cur­rently have more than 50 kit­tens in our care wait­ing to find a new home for life.

Ch­eryl O’Keeffe, the Branch an­i­mal wel­fare ad­min­is­tra­tor said: “I have been here work­ing at the branch for three sum­mers now and it just seems at times like it is rain­ing kit­tens.

Some weeks we have sev­eral calls ev­ery day from peo­ple with lit­ters of un­wanted kit­tens who are des­per­ate for some­one to take them but we are al­ways full with stray and aban­doned kit­tens and cats so rarely can help.”

Here is just a small sam­ple of the lovely lit­tle boys and girls we have in our care at the present time just wait­ing for some­one to take them home to a new life.

Cruz, Rosa, Al­fonso, Ed­uardo have just ar­rived in our care from a very kind mem­ber of public who took in a preg­nant stray cat and al­lowed her to have her kit­tens in her house.

She has now de­cided to keep the mum (now spayed) but was not able to keep the kit­tens.

Now that the kit­tens are nine weeks they are old enough to go off to their for­ever home. They are very friendly lit­tle chaps and will all make great com­pan­ions for who­ever de­cides to give them a home. Berg­amo and Brazilia are the last of a lit­ter of kit­tens that came into our care with their mum af­ter their owner moved and left them be­hind. They are su­per cute and friendly lit­tle cats who love peo­ple and at­ten­tion.

They would make su­perb fam­ily cats and they would be fine liv­ing with other pets.

If you think you could of­fer a home to Cruz, Rosa, Al­fonso, Ed­uardo, Berg­amo, Brazilia or any of the 45 other kit­tens we cur­rently have look­ing for a home for life then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

We also have many adult cats, rab­bits, guinea pigs and other small furry pets look­ing for a home. To view the many pets we have look­ing for new homes you can visit our web­site at www.rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.
