RSPCA struggling to cope with kitten "overload"

THE RSPCA Queensland's Wacol Care Centre has a staggering 54 kittens looking for homes.

Sadly, despite de-sexing campaigns and warnings, the cat breeding season has taken its toll and RSPCA staff and volunteers are struggling to cope with the overload.

"We don't want people to get a kitten for Christmas without seriously considering their future responsibilities but we are urging people to adopt not shop," RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Michael Beatty said.

"We have a huge variety of kittens, cats and dogs so please come to the RSPCA first."

For more information on adopting a kitten, visit the RSPCA website.
