Cats abandoned by owner at the KSPCA shelter

Sometimes at KSPCA we encounter the darker side of human nature. Recently a man came to our shelter and reported to Fred Atsiaya one of our kennel managers, that he had five cats in his car that he wanted to surrender. Fred said we would take them but we would like a donation from him to help cover costs.

The man agreed, walked out to his car, opened the doors threw the cats out and drove off. The cats understandably were terrified and ran off. We managed to catch three of them but unfortunately two have never been found, one of them being the mother of the half grown kittens. How heartless of the owner. Whatever small he would have given we would have taken in the cats.

Mother cat hid on the roof, but ran away and was never caught.

    Reading about what KSPCA, volunteers and animal lovers are doing is therapeutic to my soul. I have taken care of abandoned kittens in the past and it has been so gratifying to see them recover from the trauma that some brutal human beings have caused, and see them grow up and be all they could be. It’s unfortunate that the man abandoned the cats and drove off without leaving a donation, but on a positive note, at least he did not poison them, or abandon them in a forest.

    Hi, I also love animals and believe that they can be therapeutic in one way or the other.
    Last year I began taking care of two female stray cats oblivious of the fact that they procreate at least thrice a year. Now am stuck with four adults and five kittens and the cost of spaying and neutering is pretty expensive. My neighbours want me to abandon them as the breeding is getting out of hand. What do I do?

    That’s cruel. I’m in a situation where I can’t go back home bcoz I have 2 male cats who have been with me for 11 years. My father won’t let me back in the house with them. And I have no heart to abandon them. I love them n very protective towards them. I don’t know what to do. Do I have any rights to go back home without them being harmed in anyway?

    That is just complete outright brutal. I would like to figure out a way to volunteer and visit every now and then.
