The RSPCA is looking for homes for 55 Siamese cats who came into the charity’s care from a multi-cat household.
an unusual breed of cat were rescued from a multi-cat household in the Borough of Croydon by RSPCA officers on 20th February.
They were then taken to three animal centres in the area – there are 11 cats at RSPCA Leybourne in Kent, six at the RSPCA Purley, Caterham and District branch and 38 Siamese cats at RSPCA South Godstone Animal Centre in Surrey.
The charity is now looking for homes after the large influx of these cats came into its care, which included young kittens and pregnant queens.
Liz Wheeler, RSPCA inspector, said: “Multi-cat households can often arise as a result of unneutered cats breeding until a situation becomes out of the owners’ control.
“The RSPCA often works with owners to neuter and reduce the numbers of cats and dealt with more than 1,000 calls relating to animal hoarding last year.
“The hope is that these cats can now be found loving homes and get their second chance at happiness.”
The Siamese cats will need a home with adults or families with older children. Some of them can be rehomed together as they are bonded, whilst others will be happier to be rehomed on their own.
Siamese cats originate from Thailand and are one of the first recognised breeds of Asian cats. Although every cat is an individual, Siamese cats are known to be intelligent, curious and talkative cats.
