These cats and kittens were discovered in this cage in woods near Ilford by a dog walker.
They were off the footpath in deep undergrowth and were only discovered by her dog who was barking frantically at the cage. The frantic dog walker had no transport and called a friend who came with a car, between them they managed to get the cage out of the woods and drive to a local P.D.S.A (another charity veterinary clinic). The P.D.S.A are unable to take in animals for rehoming so they called us.
This photo shows the cats just arrived at our clinic. After being neutered, vaccinated and microchipped they all found new homes.
Cats being abandoned in baskets, boxes etc is an increasing problem, many are abandoned on our centres doorsteps but others are discovered in parks, by bins, outside shops or just left in the street.
This kitten was discovered in this box on the pavement outside C.H.A.T's Canning Town Veterinary Clinic.
