Kitten on string


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.

Look like these 2 eccentrics ought to be given up for adoption, after sterilisation of course.

lol anonymous.
Very strange situation indeed.
They have nothing better to do than bumping up the cat's population when many are trying to reduce it.

I believe that the display rack in the picture might actually strangle the cat if it decides to chase a cockroach that runs round the rack. This person has no brains... I do think they are abusing and cruel even with the situation! If cats get stolen or dogs or whatsoever, keep them in the house!!

Do they then mean that it is not cruel if the cats are taken or stolen away to be culled when there are too many? AVA is not the only place to call, but I believe must call IMH too. Will SPCA take a look at the photo and investigate for cruelty, if any?

SPCA can only advise - AVA can prosecute. He also muttered something about the SPCA and police already having come down. I'll check with the SPCA.

cut off the string and set the kitten free. no protection from rain and if a dog or cat were to attack, the kitten would die. breed more strays? They are insane.
