Room running out for rescue cats

Rita, a 12-year-old tabby in need of a home

An influx of kittens has sparked a pen-blocking crisis at a rescue centre.

Cats Protection’s adoption centre is full to bursting as the breeding season reaches its peak.

There are currently 56 kittens being cared for and the public rehoming wings are full.

Areas normally restricted to staff are now housing animals ready to be adopted and so they have been opened up to the public.

With so many kittens available, workers from the centre at Chelwood Gate are finding dozens of older cats are being overlooked, making the pen blocking problem even worse.

There is also a six week waiting list for cats waiting to come into the centre meaning the situation is expected to get worse over the summer.

Manager Danielle Draper said: “We always brace ourselves for this time of year, as we know it will get busy once female cats start having litters of kittens.

“Sadly this year seems to be no better than previous years.

“The problem is we have so many kittens and people would prefer to adopt them.

“It means the older cats are not being homed, and while they are perfectly ready to go to a new home, they end up taking up a pen for a long time.

“We have run out of space in our public rehoming wings, so we’re opening up our admissions wings to the public.

“It’s not ideal, as these are working areas, but we have to do whatever it takes to deal with the high number of cats we have.”

Ms Draper said it was the 22 cats over 12-years-old who were the most overlooked.

She said: “Kittens are clearly very cute, playful and endearing but we have a great number of really lovely, sweet-natured adult cats and it’s heartbreaking to see them passed by.”

ONE of the older cats in need of a home is 12-year-old tabby Rita, who was handed in as a stray in June.

Staff say she has a sweet and gentle nature, enjoys being fussed and groomed and likes the company of people.

She would suit a home where she can get plenty of attention, preferably as the only pet.

Cats are prolific breeders – one female can have up to 18 kittens a year – with the summer months being the busiest time for litters being born.

I know it beggars belief how they can do this on such a regular basis. Management must be non existent.
We'd love to adopt a couple but our 16 year old cat won't have it.

The heartbreaking overcrowding of animal rehoming centres is largely as a result of landlords and letting agents banning tenants from owning a pet. Many tenants are being put in the cruel position of having to choose a roof or their beloved pet. Landlords and letting agents urgently need to relax their policy and allow tenants to keep their pets with new pet tenancies which protect both landlord and tenant (see Dogs Trust - Letting with Pets) online. This is the way forward and prevents tenant and pet being ripped apart and rehoming centres bursting at the seams (many have waiting lists due to lack of space for incoming pets). I urge landlords and letting agents to join the let with pets scheme and stop this unnecessary heartache.

Well said Juleyanne. I understand that a Landlord may be worried about mess etc but a responsible Tenant would clear up after them too. Fortunately, where I live, pets are allowed and I always make sure I clean up after my cat.

“The problem is we have so many kittens and people would prefer to adopt them..."

... Tells you all you need to know. Human beings are inherently selfish, with a few exceptions. They are adopting kittens for their own pleasure and fun, not because they want to give a home to a stray (although they'll tell themselves something else entirely, to convince themselves they are "doing something selfless").

The root of the problem, is cats over-breeding. Why? People don't neuter them - because they want to enjoy the birth of a cute little bunch of kittens. Or they dump the cats, unneutered, and they start to breed indiscriminately with other abandoned cats.

Neutering is cheap. Even if you pay for it yourself. If you well and truly can't, there are places where you can go to get it done for free.

No excuses. This is a problem caused by arseholes.

Cat ownership should NOT be encouraged! Cats may seem to be nice cuddly animals but they wreak havoc on local wildlife. By all means adopt an old decrepit cat that is to old to hunt effectively, but these kittens should be destroyed quickly and humanely before they can do any more damage to the native animals

You idiot. Are you like 100 years old or something, from back in the day when some people used to throw sacks of kittens in the river? Neuter the cats so they can't reproduce, not destroy the kittens after they've been born! You're basically suggesting that other idiots like yourself should just let their pets breed indiscriminately and then just destroy the offspring! Your attitude is just part of the problem.

I suggest nothing of the kind. In my view owning a cat is selfish and highly irresponsible (unless you never let it outside). If you had the intelligence to actually read my comment (which you obviously don't) I clearly state that "cat ownership should NOT be encouraged". I even highlighted the word NOT. I certainly never suggested breeding kittens just to destroy them.

There ARE ways of owning cats without letting them roam indiscriminately. I have a big fence in my garden that they can't escape from. This is to protect them just as much as the local wildlife. So there's nothing selfish or irresponsible about it. There's nothing wrong with 'cat ownership'. The problem is 'cat ownership amongst idiots'. In fact if you eliminated idiots virtually all the world's problems would disappear overnight. And you've conveniently left out the point you made, about just destroying the existing kittens! THAT is one of the attitudes that leads to people allowing their cats to breed indiscriminately. "I'll just put the kittens/puppies down." To see that option as any sort of solution is just barbaric.

And why is that ? If it's because I value native wildlife over domestic pets then I can live with that. Incidentally the domestic cat is on the WWF 100 most invasive species list and is responsible for decimating indigenous animal populations in many locations around the world. Cats need no more protection than rats or Japanese knot-weed.
BTW I would NEVER advocate cruelty to any animal including cats. Well fed pet cats on the other-hand seem to delight in cruelty, slow killing for sport only.

You're probably right. Good advice - it's just that particular word is so particularly...unple
asant and I genuinely would be horrified if one of my parents used it. I think it's a class issue. I overhear it in places like Churchill square and always wonder at the way some people are raised.

Everyone is brought up differently and I need to be more tolerant of the way some people speak and operate.

And why is that ? If it's because I value native wildlife over domestic pets then I can live with that. Incidentally the domestic cat is on the WWF 100 most invasive species list and is responsible for decimating indigenous animal populations in many locations around the world. Cats need no more protection than rats or Japanese knot-weed.
BTW I would NEVER advocate cruelty to any animal including cats. Well fed pet cats on the other-hand seem to delight in cruelty, slow killing for sport only.
You already did advocate animal cruelty - destroying a healthy animal because you don't agree with what it does.

"Kill cats because they kill birds" - well that makes perfect sense.... How about we kill birds because they kill snails?

How do you feel about dogs? An animal that kills one or two people per year in the UK, usually children, and savages far more. I expect you blame the owners for that.

I'd preferably destroy you before any kittens.

Kittens grow up into loving animals, unlike you that's grown up into an unpleasant, grumpy old man.

Cats can be taught not to kill - I've had success with nearly every cat I've been lucky enough to have living with me.

I value all wild life - so I don't like birds or mice to be killed.

I had two rats as a youngster and they were fantastic pets - so I love rats, wild and those bred as pets.

I've had wild rats in my garden - when I've had my cat too! They can live perfectly in harmony.

It depends on the owner and how animals are brought up.

People need to be responsible and have respect for all wild life and animals.

Maybe she simply had no idea that her language sounded insulting. A lot of people have no idea how they sound when they make comments. . They often don’t realize that the same words said aloud to your face would be insulting. Maybe Karen T is a sarcastic person, and that doesn't typically translate well to writing. It’s not worth an impulse-reply to win a fight that might not even exist.
Nope, wrong there, my language was actually MEANT to sound insulting, directed towards an idiot who was saying nasty and idiotic things. I'm glad I clearly succeeded, ta! I would have no compunction whatsoever about repeating what I said in person, but thankfully I encounter people that stupid quite rarely.

Sorry, have to correct this hackneyed old misinformed cliché. Cats do not "kill for sport only...through delight..." ALL felines, wild and domestic, will kill when they don't necessarily need to eat.

Neutering is cheap. Even if you pay for it yourself. If you well and truly can't, there are places where you can go to get it done for free.

No excuses. This is a problem caused by arseholes.
I / we can only hope and pray that you have not managed to 'breed' yourself...

Imagine how any offspring you might...spawn would feel about their mother/father writing in such a vulgar wish as you routinely do. (See last word.)

I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Whitehawk yet in this posting by the way.
Maybe she simply had no idea that her language sounded insulting. A lot of people have no idea how they sound when they make comments. . They often don’t realize that the same words said aloud to your face would be insulting. Maybe Karen T is a sarcastic person, and that doesn't typically translate well to writing. It’s not worth an impulse-reply to win a fight that might not even exist.
You're probably right. Good advice - it's just that particular word is so particularly...unple



asant and I genuinely would be horrified if one of my parents used it. I think it's a class issue. I overhear it in places like Churchill square and always wonder at the way some people are raised.

Everyone is brought up differently and I need to be more tolerant of the way some people speak and operate.
OMG, just caught this! So you're offended by me using the word, "arseholes"? It must be a "class thing", eh? Says the woman called "Youlikemyjugs" from Whitehawk. My co-workers and I are 'pursing' ourselves laughing at that one right now...
HA HA. Youlikemyjugs got owned!
Bless!

Look, I get that you're upset - you were obviously particularly embarrassed and stung by what I inadvertently revealed about your, um, background, but simply repeating my chosen moniker does not somehow hand you the victory you seem so desperate to acquire.

Incidentally, I have never been to Whitehawk; I just deplore your constant (and boring) denigration of this estate.

My advice: Engage with the substance of my comments if you are able, but please refrain from desperate attempts to shift the focus from your own inadequacies.

Say hello to your 'co-workers' from me - that really made me chuckle!
Only problem with that is, your comments HAVE no substance! :D BTW now that I 'own' you will you come and do my cleaning? Anyway exiting this thread now, I've said all I have to say... Neuter your cat and adopt the oldies! :-)
