“Please take my cats to the RSPCA. I can’t take care of them any more. They have been wormed, had flea drops on, but still have upset tummies. I have no more money and am struggling to feed myself let alone 3 cats (with needs). I can’t afford to take them to the vets. Thank you.”
This is the note that was left with a mother cat and her two kittens, snuggled together in a pet carrier next to waste bins in a side alley off a street in Birmingham, UK.
When they were found they were still quite warm and therefore they had not been there for long. The two guys who found the cats said it was heartbreaking to read the note. They thought the cats had been cared for properly and loved.
One of the men, Paul Barnett, who found the cats took them home and telephoned some animal shelters and is awaiting their help. The other man is Pete Ash.
