Athlone Animal Welfare has had unprecedented demand for assistance with unwanted and stray cats and kittens this year.
The AAW cattery is currently at maximum capacity and unable to take in any more cats until the current ones are rehomed.
Due to unusually high temperatures experienced lately it is possible that the breeding season may have gone on longer than usual and female cats will continue to come into season so more kittens could be born in the colder weeks and months ahead.
AAW are particularly worried about this now that the weather has changed and winter is upon us. They urgently need loving homes for cats and kittens in their care so if you’re considering adopting a pet please contact them on (085 ) 1657200 or find Athlone Animal Welfare on Facebook.
