We are really struggling to cope with all the animals that get called through every single day, not to mention all the needy hedgehogs that currently need our help on a daily basis.
Yet again we have had to take in 4 very frightened kittens that were dumped in a box in a shop in Eastwood. Fortunately one of our volunteers saw them as she happened to be in the shop at the time. This very sad scenario is happening more and more frequently and it is just a very sorry state of affairs that people cannot be bothered to get their animals neutered. We have now got to find the time and money to get these latest waifs and strays vaccinated, wormed, deflead, health checked and neutered. These poor kittens are not in the best of health and it may take some weeks before they will be ready. They have not been handled at all and are still very frightened of humans.
They still have blue eyes and should be with their mother. Sadly we do not know of her whereabouts and she is probably roaming around unneutered and will probably be bringing more unwanted kittens into the world.
