RSPCA kittens need new homes

THEY’RE renowned for having nine lives but these cats have already used up more than one and they don’t want to waste any more.

Urgent new homes are being sought for about 50 cats and kittens in the care of Friends of RSPCA Gladstone.

The group will hold a Cat Adoption Day on Sunday from 9am to noon at its adoption centre (opposite NRG Power Station) in the hope of re-housing some of the large number of felines they have saved from a premature death.

Friends of RSPCA Gladstone cat foster care co-ordinator Anita Coad is calling on those considering buying a new cat or kitten to adopt.

Mrs Coad said people from across central Queensland attended the adoption days with some calling from as far as Brisbane to adopt a cat.

“We are averaging about four adoptions a week at the moment,” Mrs Coad said.

“We consider it a successful day even if we get one adopted.”
