The hunt is on for a woman who dumped seven cats and 17 kittens in taped up boxes on the side of a busy road in Everton.

The cats were found by a passerby who saw a woman driving a red Astra dump the boxes on Everton Road on April 16.

They are now in the care of St Neots Cats Protection.

Although the cats were in good condition the kittens were very young and five have since died. Three of the cats have also given birth since they were dumped.

Some of the kittens, which were only two days old when they were found are having to be hand reared by a specialist fosterer.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the offers of help, support and donations for these cats and kittens.

“We will ensure they are all given the best possible care and will find good homes for them all.”

If anyone has any information that can help identify the person who abandoned these cats, please contact St Neots Cats Protection on 01480 476696 or email stneotscats@hotmail.com

Donations of food, toys and other much needed items can be taken tothe group’s charity shop in St Neots.

Cts Protection is urging anyone who might find themselves in difficulty with a pregnant cat, or female cat with kittens, to contact either them or their local animal welfare organisation or charity for help and advice.

Contact friends, family members or neighbours to see if they can adopt your cat. If you cannot keep a cat for veterinary or behavioral reasons then contact a vet first to see if they can help. Cats Protection also urge owners to get their pet cats neutered.
