Two cats trapped in a cat carrier recover from their ordeal

Two cats are being looked after by a volunteer fosterer after they were found abandoned in a cat carrier with no water or food. The cats were found near the Hob Nails Pub near Teddington and had been dumped in an old boat.

After a member of the public stumbled across the cats, they contacted the Cheltenham branch of Cats Protection for help. Barbara Drake, their Feral and Stray Cats Officer, collected the two cats and took them to the vets.

"These poor cats are very lucky they were found. They would not have survived much longer squashed into one cat carrier with no access to water or food" said Barbara.

After being taken to the local veterinary practice, both cats were given a full check. The male cat, a three to four month old ginger, has been named Robbie while the female cat has been named Lucky. Both cats were neutered, vaccinated and microchipped as well as being given flea and worm treatment.

The cats spent the weekend at the vets and are now being looked after locally by one of Cats Protection’s volunteer fosterers, while new homes are found for them.

As well as Robbie and Lucky, the Cheltenham Branch of Cats Protection has other cats in their care looking for new homes and are interested to hear from anyone who would like to volunteer their time as a cat fosterer.
