A CAT rescue centre in Newport has launched an appeal to track down the owners of two adult cats which were found abandoned in Puckpool Park, Ryde, on New Year’s Day.
It is believed that one of the cats had recently given birth and Feline Welfare, Newport, is anxious to track down the owners and also see if they can locate the kittens.
Anyone with information should contact Nikki Hazelgrove at Feline Welfare on 01983 521778.

Mike to even suggest I would agree with shooting an animal is just plain sick I feel very sorry for you that such a thought could even go through your mind how very sad you are.

I was bemused when dog licenses were dropped as if an owner can afford to feed and look after a dog a £5 licence would be trivial so this is one of those things that bemused me. A cat licence isnt necessary because very few cats other than tigers have ever hurt anyone but dog attacks are relatively common place with varying degrees of severity especially on children,However because I love cats and i am not a hypocrite I would have no objection to the licence tag and bell all of which my cat used to wear!Mr Crowe please dont be disengenous talking about guide dogs we all know that there are far too many dangerous dogs about in poor ownership.I hope you also agree to one dog per household??

James. Your Para 1. Cat licences/ Yes please ASAP and also the restriction of 1 cat 1 household.Para 2 Never seen a report of a Guide Dog injuing or killing anybody, sorry. Please enlighten me and post said report.Para 3 Quite agree and I feel that there is scope for a course for prospective dog owners which they must pass before they have a dog just as there should be a course people must attend and pass before being allowed to have childrenPara 4. You are cordially invited to visit by back garden right now and see the mess a cat has left on the suface of the carefully prepared garden. Bring a spade with you just to get the complete feeling and knowledge that it really is on the surface.Still in Paa 4. Quite agree with the stupidity of chucking the bag of doggy dirt in the hedge .......... to live there for ever :-(Para 5. Cat licence in the form of a metal disc on a collar with a bell to give the birds a chance

Cat licences?What an absurdity. Dog licences I can understand. Dogs can, and do, cause serious injury and death. Just do a search on the BBC news site for "Dog attack"Yes, it IS the owners, but an irresponsible dog owner is a much bigger danger than an irresponsible cat owner.Cats tend to bury their faeces. Mine has a spot in our garden where she does her business. Dogs **** anywhere and everywhere, usually slap-bang in the middle of public footpaths and cycle paths and often have owners who cannot be bothered to clean up after them (or do a half hearted job if the leavings are a bit sloppy). Then if the do clean up, they often sling the bag into the hedge rather than carry it around with them.No if there is any "licensing" to be done, then a return of the dog licence is of a huge order of magnitude more important than the absurdity of a cat licence.

Yes Mr Elliott and wear it on a collar round its neck with a bell to give the birds a chance. Any cat without a collar, licence and bell can be shot. The very responsible owners like Angela will have no problem with that, will you Angela?

Introduce a cat licence. They need controlling.

How did they know these cats were abandoned? Did they have their suitcases with them or some tiny black bags?Cats roam far and wide and under the law are classed as wild animals so they can, and do what they want. I dont have a cat anymore since my last much loved one died at 19 but I still love them as it is well known that dogs have masters but cats have servants and you just have to admire that!

Then go and speak to the owners of the cats and tell them that you have a problem instead of just 'MOANING' about it on here. Because I have told people to take control of there dogs when they just let them run soaking wet all over my things at the beach where I swim! I don't however come on here and MOAN about it under a report for something that isn't relevant, I do something about it and deal with it at the time.

"" Its not the cats Mike its the people who own them and don't take responsibility""Quite agree. So gald that YOU said that, but now you can see whee I am coming from with my first statement.I am a dog person and I always say when I see a disruptive/noisy/troublesome dog, especially if it is on a lead, pulling, barking and jumping about, "There's a badly trained person at the end of that lead"

I have three or though I didn't expect to as one is now 20 so I have had him with me most of my adult life. BUT mine have a litter tray which all three use and come in from the garden to use. They are not left to run around unattended and the people who live round me know that if they should cause any problem to anyone to come and let me know and I will sort it out. I can also say they do not have fleas and I do not leave then out of a night time. Its not the cats Mike its the people who own them and don't take responsibility. No matter how you feel it is not right to just dump cats in some park and expect them to just look after them selves. Yes I accept people have problems but you don't do that is just cruel. Where are her kittens because they do need to be found and taken care of whatever anyone feel about cats.
