After 2 weeks of daily visits, we’ve successfully rescued and treated 53 kittens in the biggest rescue that we’ve ever done!
All rescued from one house, this extraordinary case sadly demonstrates the importance of neutering and how quickly a few kittens can get out of control. We’re working with the relevant authorities to provide support for the owner and to ensure that this doesn’t happen again.
So how are the kittens holding up?
When we rescued them, all were malnourished, a few had sore eyes and noses, and one was sadly missing a front leg due to trauma. Ranging in ages, with some as young as 2 weeks old, we suspect that many are inbred. 2 have been confirmed as being pregnant, (with more suspected as being so), so even more kittens are on the way!
However, with the hard work and dedication of our team, the kittens are all now doing well, are eating and have been flea’d, wormed and microchipped. They’re happily making their way through 80 tins of food and 5 bags of cat litter every single day!
Thanks to the incredible help of our volunteers, partners and you, our supporters, we’re making sure that the kittens get the care and rehabilitation that they deserve and are starting the process of rehoming them. (All who are old enough will be neutered before they are rehomed)
Our waiting list is closed so we’re unable to accept any more requests to rehome. If you are already on the waiting list we’ll be in touch over the coming weeks once the kittens are ready (some are still very young so may be 4-6 weeks).
This wouldn’t have been possible without the donations and support from local people, so we’d like to thank everyone who has helped us make this happen.
We’d hate to think of what could have happened if we hadn’t had the donations and resources to help these kittens. Sadly, the COVID 19 pandemic has dramatically reduced our income.

Thank you everyone for your support, and we’ll keep you updated with more cute kitten updates as they continue to grow and thrive!
