A national cat welfare charity has today launched a desperate appeal for people to neuter their pets following fears that 2011 could be the worst year yet for unwanted kittens.
Cats Protection has made the appeal because it experienced an 18 per cent increase in kittens arriving at its adoption centres during summer 2010 and this has led to concerns that this year could be even worse.
And early indications are worrying as the organisation’s volunteers and staff are already reporting dumped litters of kittens, which has left the charity wondering how it will cope if its fears are founded.
