Sian Anderson, a clinical manager at the hospital, says:
We are seeing such a high number of kittens coming into our care, and we would like to urge people to remember to get their cats neutered to try and avoid unwanted litters of kittens. Hand-rearing is so time intensive and our staff are overwhelmed by the sheer number of cats and kittens that need our help.
This year, the RSPCA has apparently taken in 14% more abandoned cats than in previous years.
Always consider adoption if you feel ready to provide a forever home for a new pet. As for George and Elton, these two handsome fellas will become available for adoption in about a month – and will be adopted together.
