Jim, who works at Perth recycling plant, called Sue in a panic to say he had found a 2 week old kitten near all the rubbish. Because Sue had 4 days of fundraising planned she wouldn’t have been able to feed it every 2 hours so she referred Jim to the SSPCA – they collected it & it is now in their care. Sadly, people do put unwanted kittens in wheelie bins on collection days! But the good news is that Jim later found 3 more kittens at the back of one of the lorries so the one on its own was probably from the same litter – he has put them safe where the mum has found them. The mum is one of last year’s kittens that survived & Sue has been trying to catch her for some time. Sue has monitored the recycling plant for years & the feral cats are now under reasonable control. Because the winter has been so mild we can expect very early litters this year. Happy news – the 2 elderly cats being fostered by Carol & Adam have now found a forever home.
