Can you help find homes for abandoned kittens?

First published in Local News

A CAT welfare charity is desperately searching for new foster homes.

The Basildon and Brentwood branch of Cats Protection has been inundated with kittens found dumped in the street.

Two tiny ginger kittens and two black and white kittens were abandoned in Laindon.

Janet Rouse, treasurer of the charity, said residents are finding boxes of cats in garages, gardens and sheds.

The branch, which is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, is looking after 90 cats. It also has a long waiting list of animals waiting to be fostered.

Mrs Rouse said: “Unfortunately we have been unable to help everyone who has called us as our foster homes are full to the brim now. We really need some additional foster places.

“Potential fosterers need a spare room or no cats of their own and to live in our area.”

One reason they may have trouble finding homes for their abandoned cats is because they are picky, picky, picky about who re-homes the cats.
I was turned down without even having a home visit. The RSPCA were more pragmatic and I have had the kitten they gave me for 12 years.
They would rather leave a cat in a cage than take a chance with a loving home.

I half agree with your comment. I can understand them being picky about who rehomes the cats, but on the other hand they need homes for these lovely animals so they should be a bit more flexible.

Put them down if they are not rehomed after three months. The world has more important issues to deal with.

And it would stop them killing birds and other animals which cats do when let out of their homes...
