It’s not a pleasant thing to do, I’ve got 4 cats….
..but in the grand scheme of things, what with battery farmed chickens, the dairy industry, the breeding of game birds for the 12th of August, pigs in pens and so on, it’s not something to be overly concerned about just because kittens are cute and furry.Posted 4 years ago
Got hold of a lady from local cats protection who arranged for me to drop them at a local vets that she deals with so I ran them down there. They have gave them a feed and a once over and they are now in that ladies care.
It’s 50/50 if they survive since they are only a few days old. They really need their mother so I have put a sign up outside basically saying we want the mother no questions asked. Can’t see it working but got to try.
Told the lady I have 2 cats and she thinks they have left them at my car for a reasonPosted 4 years ago
some shits left 4 kittens next to my Car tonight. The kittens were only a few days old. Didn’t even have their eyes open.
They were inside a carrier bag with a pink towel in it. opened the bag and inside the towel was another TIED up carrier bag with the kittens in.
How on earth can people do this!!! Makes me so angry.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
I once rescued a tiny kitten from the middle of a busy dual-carriageway, I think it had fallen off the underneath of a farm vehicle. Took it to the farm up the lane but nobody was in so I took it to another nearby farm where the wifey promised to look after it. Wish I’d kept it now, my son was about 2 at the time and he’d have loved it.Posted 4 years agofootflapsSubscriber
I can’t understand people why do that as finding homes for kittens couldn’t be easier. These days because so many cats are neutered kittens are hard to find and really quite expensive to buy. IME anyway.
Yep, they go within 1-2 days from the local Rescue centres, people snap them up the minute they see them.Posted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
Ummmmm… I hate to upset the pussy lovers on here (and I love cats as much as you do) but dumping four kittens in a place where they’ll be found is humane compared with what happens to cats around the world. In Britain we like cats but in most other countries they are considered vermin and certainly not kept as pets. Even our local farmer, whose farm is over-run with semi-feral cats, admitted to me that he humanely kills a spare cat from time to time to use as bait for catching the foxes in his fox trap. He told me he doesn’t trap and kill foxes during the summer because he can’t bear to think about the cubs waiting hungry in the den for Mum or Dad to come home…..Posted 4 years agoernie_lynchMember

Are you sure about that ? I would have thought that cats are kept as pets in most countries. Certainly they have been seen as very useful controllers of rodents since the Ancient Egyptians, and probably since wheat was first cultivated and grain stores were established.Posted 4 years ago
