Kitten on string
Here is the kitten on the string again that I saw on Saturday. You can just see him under the wooden plank. You can also see the bowl of food - the kitten is also given ample water.
I went to speak with a shop owner nearby whom I believed might be able to convince the man that this was not a good idea. Unfortunately she was just as eccentric. She started telling me that the cats were stolen and that the same thing had happened to her dog which she let run out of her home, and that people should not say something is cruel, without understanding the situation.
I took out some photos to show her of cats that were dumped and told her that there are so many cats around - why would someone want to steal this man's kittens?
She took one look at the photos and asked me if I could give her the cats. I told her that it was important to get the cats sterilised.
She and the man later told me that they hoped to get friends for the cat. The woman also said she wanted to mate them so that there would be lots of kittens.
