Editor, The Times:

Four tiny kittens were dumped like garbage in Blackpool late on June 24.

Weather was storming, but against all odds these wee things crawled off the road into someone’s yard. Three were found Monday – the fourth on Tuesday. All were hypothermic, hungry and frightened.

Whoever did this – think about the message you are sending your children, not to mention the whole moral issue.

Take responsibility as a pet owner. Yes, spaying or neutering is expensive, but if it’s not in your budget maybe you shouldn’t have pets that require this much care.

Taking them to the vet to be put to sleep is far more humane than dumping them for predators or vehicles to kill.

Note: At present the kittens are being bottle-fed and will be ready for adoption around Aug. 1. Hand raised kittens are extremely loving and bond closely with their owners, making unique pets.
