Some lucky kittens temporarily fostered in Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR) volunteers have found new homes after being introduced to the public at last Saturday’s Lambousa Market in Lapta.
KAR, which is currently caring for 60 cats and kittens, managed to find owners for five of them that were taken to the market for a first-ever “KAR Kitten Day”. A further three were homed during the week, but there are more than 20 kittens still waiting to be homed at the centre, KAR said.
Volunteer Maggie Smith, who is currently fostering three kittens, said: “All of them were just dumped without their moders.
“We need more people to realise that owning a cat does not end with feeding it but they should neuter them to stop creating a growing population of stray kittens, all of which cannot be saved.
“Our remaining kittens are in desperate need of being homed and we welcome people to visit our offices to find out more and to get to know these lovely characters.”
