Branch inundated with kittens and cats in recent months.

Wednesday 31 July 2013

The Ceredigion branch of the RSPCA is making an urgent appeal for safe and caring homes for the many cats and kittens in their care. The branch is currently full to capacity with 40 cats and kittens and is currently having to put animals on a waiting list until spaces become available.

Frances Miller of Ceredigion branch of the RSPCA said: ”We are currently dealing with a large amount of cats and really need the public’s help to find new homes for them fast.  We would urge anyone considering getting a cat or a kitten to come to us first. We have to find homes for these cats in order for us to be able to help the many more who desperately need us.

“Our cats are healthy, neutered if over six- months-old, microchipped and vaccinated. Older cats make very good  companions and usually adapt to new homes and owners very well.

“The cats have ended up in the care of the branch for a number of reasons. Some are brought in as strays, some because their owners are moving to accommodation that doesn’t allow animals, some are given up because owners can no longer afford to look after them and in some cases sadly the owner has passed away”.

The cats are currently in foster homes in the Newcastle Emlyn, Cardigan and Crymych. If you can offer any of the cats a loving home then please call 01239 810595. A donation of £25 is requested for one cat and £40 for two cats – money which is put straight back into helping the cats. A home check is always carried out before rehoming and homes need to be away from busy roads.
