Mother Cat and 4 Kittens Abandoned in Carrier at Side of Road
Winnipeg, MB, June 28, 2017: A mother cat and her 4 kittens are safe at Craig Street Cats, after being abandoned in a small carrier at the side of St. Mary's Rd.
"We are appalled at the immense cruelty people can inflict on helpless animals," says Lynne Scott, Executive Director at Craig Street Cats. "The mother and 4 kittens were crammed into a small carrier, and left for goodness knows how long before a good samaritan stopped to investigate. The carrier is absolutely full of urine and feces. All 5 cats are very thin, and attacked the food and water bowls as soon as they were offered." Scott says the cats will see CSC's vet, and be held for several weeks before being offered for adoption.
