Kitten season has arrived, and RSPCA Eurobodalla is calling on the community to act responsibly if they find themselves confronted with a litter of unplanned kittens.
In recent weeks, the local RSPCA Branch has been called in to help when kittens, many of them very tiny, have been found in drains, on bush tracks, in caravan parks and even on roads.
These kittens have been abandoned. There was one instance where the mother cat was left with her babies.
Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1979.
It is also heartless and completely unnecessary, because RSPCA Eurobodalla Branch will help you if you are faced with a litter of kittens you can't keep.
Don't leave these tiny creatures in an out of the way place, hoping they will be found. They may not be found.
Contact us on 0424 228 425. We will look after your kittens if you can't. Do not leave them and walk away.
