Kittens in the Rubbish Bin

Those of us of a certain age will remember Top Cat pulling tasty fish heads out of a waste bin but this is more about somebody disposing of kittens in this fashion.

Costa Velez Benaudalla Kittens in the RubbishA Seprona patrol (Guardia Civil) based in Motril pulled five newborn kittens from a rubbish bin where a woman had allegedly dumped them, secured in a bag.

This occurred in Vélez de Benaudalla. It was a neighbour that alerted the Guardia Civil to this because when the woman deposited her ‘rubbish’ the neighbour could hear mewing coming from the small hopper.

The 79-year-old woman is presently under investigation over this and could face charges under the Protección de los Animales Domésticos act.

Seprona moved fast and located the bin with the kittens in it – had they not been discovered they would have gone through the compactor in the rubbish-collection lorry.

The police handed over the kittens to the animal rescue association, SOS Animales Salobreña, who are looking after them

Meanwhile the Guardia Civil identified and questioned the woman, who admitted that her female cat had just produced an unwanted litter.

    If the 79 year old woman had got her cat sterilised there would of been no kittens Very irresponsible of her and then too treat kittens this way when she could of taken them to a shelter is despicable and should be charged with animal cruelty

    We found three very young kittens next to a rubbish bin this Saturday. Took them home, one died but the other two are growing fast and are happy now.

    I think some 79 years ago somebody had produced an unwanted female human…..
    Hope the fines for this act of animal cruelty are harsh. Thanks to the Guardia Civil who acted fast and successfully.
