The RSPCA recently uncovered 55 Siamese cats from a single home. That’s not a typo – a “animal hoarder” kept over 50 cats in his home in a case of breeding gone out of control. The RSPCA took all the cats in and is now looking for their new forever homes.
Siamese cats are among the priciest breeds out there. Going for £500, the 55 cats could be sold for a small fortune. That was probably the goal of the hoarder. According to RSPCA’s Liz Wheeler, multi-cat homes often arise as a result of unneutered cats. Just last year, the organization worked together with owners to neuter over 1,000 cats and prevent hoarding. However, cases such as this one pop-up from time to time. The staff is now hoping that the cats will be adopted in loving homes.
RSPCA inspectors saved the cats from a Croydon household on February 20. The beautiful Siamese cats are very intelligent and need a home with adults, not small children. Some will be rehomed together, while others will need to be rehomed on their own.
The 55 cats were taken to three shelters in the area – RSPCA Leybourne (Kent), RSPCA South Godstone Animal Centre (Surrey), and RSPCA Purley in Caterham. If you want to adopt one, contact any of the branches.
