VICTIM OF OUR THROW-AWAY SOCIETY: DO YOU RECOGNISE THIS LOST CAT FOUND IN TABLE VIEW RECENTLY?

VICTIM OF OUR THROW-AWAY SOCIETY: DO YOU RECOGNISE THIS LOST CAT FOUND IN TABLE VIEW RECENTLY?

Sadly this lovely female cat, whom we have called Wendy has not been claimed.  It is so very tragic - we get about ten calls a day from people  who no longer want their cats, or who have not sterilised them and now do not want the cats and their kittens.  These beautiful animals are simply discarded like a piece of garbage.  The mother cats try so hard to protect their kittens but are helpless at the hands of people who dump them in rubbish bins, throw them out of moving cars or leave them in cardboard boxes outside animal shelters.  The cats and kittens are so perfect, so beautiful and so dignified, but  are regarded by many as not worthy of life. A mother cat will never abandon her young, often at peril to her own life. Can the same be said about humans?  Has anyone who has wanted their children to see a litter being born, ever watched the life go out of their eyes after they are injected with a lethal substance? Who dies first? The mother or the kittens? Our throw-away society where life has no value has resulted in shocking levels lf violence both to people and animals.  Surely we can do better than this?

 
Does anyone recognise this cat who was found off Blaauwberg Road near the streets named after wines?  She is clearly someone's cat and is missing her owner as she appears to be very sad and quiet.  She is black with white patches on either side of her face, white whiskers, a white chest and white paws. She also has a small piece of her left ear missing.  Please phone Adopt-a-Pet if you think this lovely cat may belong to you.  So far nobody has responded to our adverts in the press or to our notifications left at veterinary practices in the area.  If no one claims her within the next 10 days, she will be put up for adoption on 19th October 2012. Phone 021 465-4560 between 8:30-9:30pm
