A ''very busy'' kitten season has kept Queenstown Cat Rescue
occupied with caring for and rehoming kittens.
To help the rehoming process, a kitten adoption day will be
held next Saturday from noon to 5pm in Fernhill.
Queenstown Cat Rescue co-founder Ruth de Reus said there
would be around 15 kittens which she hoped would go to new
''We have already adopted out a small number of kittens but
aim to have an adoption day to enable people to come visit
the kittens in the one place.
''Otherwise, people will need to visit individual homes that
are fostering kittens.''
The breeding season continues and Ms de Reus said the cat
rescue was still picking up kittens, many of them stray.
''We are always looking for volunteer fosterers, due to the
high number of kittens that we are getting.
''This will continue through until March-April as kittens are
still being born.''
She said this year was busier than last, although the busiest
season was 2009, the year cat rescue was formed.
The kittens for the adoption day are ones which have been
reported by the public in areas throughout Queenstown,
Fernhill, Goldfields, Frankton, Arrowtown and Dalefield and
removed by rescue volunteers.
The adoption day will be held at 2a Miller Pl, Fernhill, on
Saturday, January 19, from noon until 5pm.
