THE manager of an animal centre in South Mimms has told how the care home is inundated with unwanted kittens.
Anna White, of RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre in Packhorse Lane, is appealing to readers who are thinking of getting a kitten as a pet to adopt one from a rescue centre.
She told the Welwyn & Hatfield Times: "Every year during July, August and September we are inundated with unwanted kittens and pregnant cats.
"This problem is getting worse and worse with literally hundreds of kittens looking for homes."
There are kittens of all shapes, sizes and colours looking for homes at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre.
Ms White added: "Please do the responsible thing and visit an animal rescue centre if you are thinking of adopting one.

"By doing this you will give an animal that really needs one a home and you will not be adding to the numbers of cats around."
