RSPCA urges Fenland public to do their research as the UK sees a boom in kitten buying

The RSPCA is concerned a boom in kitten buying could lead to more cats coming into rescue centres and needing new homes, as the charity reports there were 648 cat incidents in Cambridgeshire this year.

This July saw Google searches for ‘kittens near me’ increase six-fold compared to the same period last year (a 667 per cent increase).

During the lockdown, there has also been an 188 per cent increase in searches for kittens within just a few months.
