This time of year is always difficult with lots of kittens being born and many unwanted cats and kittens coming in. We urge people to consider getting a rescue cat and remember RSPCA adoption fees usually include neutering, microchipping, full veterinary checks, worming, flea treatments and any vaccinations so please contact your local branch or centre for the cat of your dreams!
