Huge response to kitten appeal

Animal loving Bridlington residents gave a fantastic response to our recent kitten adoption appeal on behalf of the RSPCA.

Of the 20 kittens seeking homes all but three have moved in with new families.

The remaining three, who will be staying with fosterers over Christmas, will be available for adoption in the new year but will have to move to the cattery in Nafferton if new owners are not found soon after.

Kay Harrison, of Bridlington RSPCA, said: “We expected a response from the public and thought maybe five or six kittens might get re-homed, but we didn’t expect so many people to help.

“I would like to say a big thank you to everybody who came forward to offer a kitten a home.”

Kay was keen to point out that the £5 microchipping service will still be available next year and said they had recently reunited two cats with their owners, one who had been missing for 4 weeks and the other who had been gone for two years. The RSPCA said that the large number of unwanted kittens they had cared for this year (the centre took in 130 kittens in 2011) was due to owners not getting their cats neutered.

Bridlington RSPCA is urging people to get their cats neutered, and can offer financial help to owners who cannot afford the procedure.
