9 September 2008 - 3 six week old kittens, found abandoned in a box in Tawa are the first kittens to arrive at Wellington SPCA this kitten season. The kittens, all in good health, are now being cared for by a fosterer until they are old enough to be desexed and rehomed.

Wellington SPCA estimates it will care for in excess of 1,000 kittens this season. Many, like the three who arrived today, are abandoned to an uncertain fate. The lucky ones are found and cared for by Wellington SPCA. Kittens under 8 weeks old are cared for in temporary foster homes.

"If you have a cat that isn't de-sexed, now is the time to do it" said Judi Weir, Chief Executive of Wellington SPCA. "There are far too many unwanted kittens born each year. If you don't know 8 people who want a kitten, then please, don't let your cat breed. De-sexed pets live longer happier lives, so you are doing your pet a favour" she continued.

Anyone interested in fostering kittens this season should contact Wellington SPCA on 389 8044.
