The RSPCA is urging cat owners to neuter their pets after five tiny kittens were found dumped in Ashford.

A concerned woman contacted the animal charity after coming across the six-week-old kittens in a Moses basket in Fairholme Road on April 23.

The kittens are now being cared for at RSPCA Millbrook Animal Centre in Chobham.

Animal welfare officer (AWO) Carl Hone went to pick them up.

He said: “The kittens are around six weeks old so really should still be with their mum.

“However, they’re thankfully all healthy and seem well so we’ve taken them to our centre in Chobham where they’ll be getting vet checks and lots of TLC until they’re old enough to be rehomed.”

They’ve been named Kanye, Kendrick, Kadi, Nicki and Gerald (or G-Eazy) after rappers.

AWO Hone has put up posters in the local area but, if no one comes forward to claim the cats, then they will be rehomed by RSPCA staff.

Mr Hone said: “Unfortunately, the RSPCA sees a huge influx of kittens every summer during kitten season because there are many unneutered pet cats and stray cats in England.

“The message we really want to hit home to people is that they need to get their cats neutered to avoid any unwanted litters which, in turn, puts a lot of pressure on animal charities and rescue centres like the RSPCA.”
