Leeds cats in crisis
Cats Protection in Leeds is applying for a new home for hundreds of cats that are being dumped on the streets every month.
Over the last two years, over six cat animal charities have been closed putting a pressure on other shelters to take care after abandoned cats and other pets. The problem is getting serious as there are more feral colonies in the city now and thousands of cats are breeding. According to one of the Cats Protection employees, this year has been the worst in the past fifteen years. Adult cats are dumped pregnant and kittens are often abandoned few days after being born. They are simply left to die. The problem is that even if the kittens are given to a national charity, they are likely to be put down as there is no space available for them.
Everyone who wants to adopt a kitten is asked to contact local animal shelters and charities.
