Blue Cross declares kitten crisis


Blue Cross has declared a kitten crisis at their Cumbria branch after taking in a third more kittens this year already, compared to 2014.

Joanne Park, Volunteer Foster Carer for Blue Cross in Carlisle said: “We hope owners come forward for all of the kittens in our care soon. We are concerned that not enough local cats have been neutered and that we won’t have room to take in more unwanted litters.”

The branch currently has 16 kittens in their care and two of these litters were admitted suffering from serious eye conditions, one is now blind and others will have restricted sight. The kittens will be up for rehoming shortly.

Just some of the little cuties at Cumbria are pictured below:
