CATS Protection has appealed for help after three kittens were found abandoned in a box at Seaclose Park during the Olympic torch celebrations on July 14.
They were rescued by Cats Protection and are now thriving at the charity's centre at Ryde.
Around the same time, two kittens were found abandoned in Vectis Road, East Cowes, and four kittens were found in Clarence Road, also in East Cowes.
Jo Morrison, deputy manager of the centre, said: "We now have around 50 kittens needing homes, plus a similar number of adult cats.
"The problem of unwanted cats on the Island remains critical. Unfortunately, we are struggling to find new homes for around 100 animals in our care."
Cats Protection is open every day, from 11am to 3pm.
