Five cats abandoned in small Box!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I used to volunteer for a rescue organization, but quit due to stress the owner was causing me. I recently started going back once or twice a week, and fostering kittens for them. I get a call up this afternoon and it was the centre, needing me to help out for half an hour because some cats were coming in. I got there to find a man standing there with a box that had been duct taped all over.

Anyway, he said 3 of the 5 cats that were in the box excaped when he was putting it in the car, and we leant him our live trap to hopefully catch them. He had gone away camping for the long weekend here in Canada and came back this morning to find a box with 5 adult cats on his doorstep. Now this box was waaaaay to small to fit 5 cats in it for one thing, and had no holes for them to breath, whoever dropped them off their had taped everything up.

Heres some pics.

Of the box


another shot of the box, mind my foot



heres one of the two cats he was able to keep n the box, Bess we named her, she is either pregnant or has given birth recently.


This is Camilla, she is definatly pregnant, I could feel at least one baby in there, when they go to the vets, they will know more than I do. She is also deaf.



how can people do this to poor helpless kitties?

People like that make me sick But i always say, what goes around comes around and i hope whatever happens it's twice as bad!.

Aww, those poor kitties. I can't believe the creep that abandoned them put them in a box with no air!! I'm so glad that you are there to help them!

Some ppl are sick... it really makes me angry....

Well done anyway on helping out with the poor babies. I wonder what their story is though?

Btw, are they both blind? It's just their eyes look a funny colour

The things people do *shakes head*. But the kitties are now in good hands and hopefully will find loving homes. Camilla in particular is striking, with her eyes. If I was closer I'd snatch her up!

Bess is scared when you go to touch her and Camilla walked around and hissed when she saw the other cats, so I am pretty sure they can see, they may have some vision loss though. They are also flea infested and have scabs from the bites. And have hair loss from them as well.

I will know more when they go to the vets this week sometime. Their was no way to get them up today because it being a holiday and all.

Bess's eyes reflect the way my 15-year-old kitty's eyes reflect because she has cataracts. Vet says it doesn't really impair her. (It sure doesn't affect her eating!)

I used to have an odd-eyed cat, and her retinas reflected 2 different colors the way Camilla's do. It's too bad she is deaf, and I REALLY hope you all can find nice homes for them.

-smacks head- I forogt to look at their teeth to see how old they are approx.

I am pretty sure Camilla is a first time mum.. but not sure.

Also, last august we took 3 adult white cats, and two white kittens from some people, all but one of the cats were deaf. The lady said she had 5 other cats to give to us, but we couldn't take them because we were full and couldn't afford to take them without doantion being given, told them to seperate the males from the females and we would take them when we could. And now 5 cats show up on someones doorstep, one of them that we know of is white and deaf.. I think it may be from the same people, not sure yet, I have to call around and get her number and check it out.

What makes a person think it's acceptable to treat animals this way! At least these poor kitties are safe now. Thanks for caring for them.

Man that is terrible that people are so stupid like that. Not that I promote doing this but they could AT LEAST put up a free cats sign, instead of putting them into a small box, I don't like free pets but better then a box with no air!

Wanna hear something else about stupid people? I was on the phone with a lady at the shelter today and she wanted to sign up her cat for our low cost spay neuter clinic. After I signed her up (which means I took her name, phone number and address) and then she proceded to tell me that they actually have a whole barn full of cats that people drop off and they can't afford to fix them all so they just shoot them. She voluntarily told me this information. Stupid on her part. So I turned around and handed her name and contact info to the humane officer who was sitting right behind me!! I want to tell the lady "ok our humane officer will be over shortly to pay you a little visit, have a nice day!"

I believe that people who do these sorts of things to animals will meet their fate on judgement day. It both breaks my heart and angers me that people are capable of such horrible acts. I remember when I was in high school, I had to read Dante's Inferno. After we read the book we had to create our own "level of purgatory". For my paper, I created a level of hell for animal abusers! Needless to say, my paper was the longest and most descriptive in the class (I got an A+ too!)

Well, you'd have to arm wrestle me for her!

They're both adorable, and in infinitely better hands now!

People! Grrr!

That is very sad, some people do not have a brain. Thanks for people like you trying to make a differance. I still say Cats do not get the same respect as dogs at all, and I don't understand that.

I think the saem way. I play on a dog Sim, and I had made a post in the forum there about not letting your cats outdoors unless supervised or a fenced in yard that they can't get out of, and I was attacked by this one person sayign its cruel to not let them out, that her cats are allowed to wander as far as she like.
I said that if it was her dog, would she let him wander as far as he like. And she was speachless for awhile before coming up with, 'Cats are different then Dogs' sure as hell they are different, but they deserve equal treatment.

What a shame for her. How is she coping with it? But at least it happened where people understood and could care for her.
