Plea for help to home cats

Have your say

The RSPCA Lincolnshire East branch is once again appealing for help in dealing with the high number of cats and kittens currently in its care.

The branch, which covers Spalding, Boston, Sleaford and surrounding villages has more than 40 cats and kittens in need of new homes.

Branch staff fear if they don’t find new homes soon for the cats currently in their care, they will not be able to help any more felines that are also in desperate need of attention.

The branch rehomed 88 cats last year, but already the numbers of cats needing new homes this year has increased dramatically.

Cherrie Bartlett, branch rehoming co-ordinator, said: “Last year was an incredibly tough year for the Lincolnshire branch, and this year doesn’t look like it is going to get any better.

“Sadly, for reasons unknown, we are once again inundated with poor cats and kittens, all in desperate need of new homes.

“There is a real fear that if we are not able to find new homes or fosterers for the cats currently in our care, then we are going to struggle to cope with any new animals who will all need our help and support.”
