‘Compost Cat’ puts her new litter in the bin!
A FAMILY of kittens has been rescued from a compost bin on an industrial estate.
A eagle-eyed worker at a unit in Hurdsfield spotted a black cat living in the bin at the far side of a car park.
She contacted the RSPCA when she suspected the feral cat had given birth to a litter of kittens. An inspector collected the mum – nicknamed Compost Cat – and her four kittens, which are now living in a foster home. The RSPCA said: “Mum is feral but dotes on her new litter, who are living contentedly in one of our volunteer’s homes. When the kittens are no longer dependant on mum, they will be socialised with a view to rehoming them.”
