Kitten tied with a string
On Saturday evening, I saw this kitten tied with a string outside a shop. Around its neck was what looked to be nylon string. The kitten 'belongs' to a vagrant man who happens to live there. He claims that people have been 'stealing' his cats and that he has to tie it up. He said that he got into a fight the last time with someone who tried to steal his cats. He says that he cannot keep an eye on it when he is in the toilet and so has to tie the kitten up.
The adoption volunteer asked if he would consider a cage for when he had to take toilet breaks and that the kitten be allowed to run free otherwise. She also advised him that the kitten might get strangled. He insisted that the string was safe and that someone might run off with a cage. We pointed out that someone could snip the string but he wasn't convinced.
