Every year, particularly around early summer, the RSPCA and all other animal charities become inundated with female cats living on the streets, either pregnant or desperately trying to feed and keep safe their tiny starving kittens when they are hungry and homeless themselves.
This is often down to owners of both male and female cats failing to have their pets neutered, either at all, or at a young enough age.
Females then become pregnant, and are thrown out because their owners can't deal with the situation. The luckier ones end up with us, while others remain on the streets, unwanted, and adding to the never ending, hungry, stray and feral population.
If you own a cat, male or female, it is your responsibility to have him or her neutered as soon as your Vet advises it is appropriate, and we cannot stress enough the importance of doing this.
Please don't add to the homeless crisis.
If you are on a very low wage, please contact us for help.
