Appeal as Northern Ireland cat charity faces kitten crisis

By Staff Reporter

Belfast is facing a kitten crisis, according to an animal charity.

Cats Protection's Belfast Adoption Centre is desperately appealing for owners to adopt one of many kittens in its care.

A particularly busy kitten season has left the charity bursting at the seams and they are having great difficulty finding both new owners and foster carers for the homeless kittens.

Belfast Adoption Centre manager Bel Livingstone said: "As a result of un-neutered cats breeding, we have recently taken in over 40 unwanted and abandoned kittens.

"With over 100 cats already in our care, we are desperately looking for new owners to provide homes for these cats and kittens."

One of the kittens in need is Macavity who was rescued from inside a cavity wall at an Ardoyne Sports and Social Club by Cats Protection and Westland Fire Station in north Belfast.
