Abandoned kittens looking for a home
8:00pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in News
VETS caring for two kittens who were abandoned are looking for a new owner to give them a loving home.
Named at the vets, Tigerlilly and Blossom are four-month-old sisters, who were found abandoned in a field near Pinehurst Road on Sunday afternoon.
The kittens were abandoned in a cat carrier with no markings or address and are now being cared for at Drove Vets.
“A lady who was walking her dog found the cat carrier and bought them to us,” said Jane Carter, marketing coordinator at Drove Vets.
“She said she had to do a double take as it is not the kind of thing you normally expect to see.
“There are no distinguishing features about the kittens or a microchip so there is no way of tracing their owners.
“They are loving, friendly and have clearly been very well looked after.”
The sisters aren’t the only homeless cats at Drive.
There a number of cats who at the vets, many of whom have been bought in following an accident.
Efforts are made to try and find their home but this is not always possible.
Jane said: “Often they are strays which concerned people have bought in but sometimes they are loved family pets. Make sure to get any cat you have microchipped.
“If people have concerns about a cat then bring it in and any vet will scan it for free.
“For families who are struggling to cope, there are lots of pet rescue centres in the area.”
Anyone who can provide the kittens or any cats with a home can call 01793 522483.
