Tuesday is always ops day with our Newburgh vet Claire Poole so Sue spends Mondays gathering up feral cats needing neutered. This Monday Sue dealt with a call from the SSPCA who had asked for her to trap a mum & kittens in a garden in Leven. Sue was horrified to see the mum cat had a collar around her rib cage! The 2 kittens, a lovely tortie girl & a peach-ginger boy, about 3 months old, are unfortunately beyond taming. After 5 hours Sue had only trapped the semi-feral mum – the lady whose garden the cats were in had been asked by Sue not to feed them but the kittens weren’t hungry enough to come to the trap as the previous night’s meal leftovers of spaghetti bolognaise had been put down for the birds & the kittens obviously liked Italian! Sue had to call it a day as it was getting dark – by the time she got home the male kitten was in the trap & the lady’s husband kindly brought him to Whinnybank. Hopefully the female kitten will be caught soon. We’ll keep you posted re the mum cat’s collar injury.
