UNITED KINGDOM – Little Aye Aye, Kane and Plankton all needed a bit o surgery after being found abandoned.
They are the neglected ‘pirate’ cats who had to have an eye removed having being found abandoned in south Birmingham.
The three kitties have been named Aye-Aye, Kane and Plankton after being rescued by carers at Cramar Cat Sanctuary.
The adorable kittens all had horrific infections in their eyes, with each needing to have one removed.
However, the resilient trio is now ready to treasure their new homes and hope to steal someone’s hearts.
“Aye Aye was living as a stray, Plankton came in with a really infected eye, and so did Kane,” said cat carer Alison White, who has worked at Cramar for 14 years.
“Kane was found after an eviction company got in touch and told us that the kittens had just been left.
“Sadly, one of the litter had already died and another two later passed away.
“But they are all doing really well.
“It’s unusual to have three cats in at one time who have needed to have an eye removed- but they can still go on to have a perfectly normal life once they get the treatment they need.”
The sanctuary is now appealing to anyone who might be interested in a cat, as the charity currently has more than 55 kittens in need of a loving home.
Carole Lowe, who is Chairwoman at Cramar, stated: “The cats were all found in a dreadful state.
“We think that someone must have thrown a cat out because it was pregnant, and the kitten has ended up in an awful mess after catching a horrible infection.
“People just don’t realise the consequences of their actions.
“And in this age of Google there is no excuse for not knowing about the proper care of a cat, and that it should be neutered.
“Any living creature deserves to be treated better than these poor cats.
“We would urge anyone thinking about getting a cat to go to their local rescue centre.”
If you would like to adopt a cat, Cramar is open each and ry day between 11am and 2pm for visitors.
