The Mayhew Animal Home takes care of postman’s special delivery of kittens

A postman in Harlesden became the recipient of a special delivery when he discovered four kittens and their mother in his mail trolley.
The cute moggies, who are only two-weeks-old, and their mum had been living out in the cold and rain since they were born.
They are now in the care of the Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green, who are looking after them until they are ready to find loving homes.
To celebrate their postal service roots and unusual start in life, Mum has since been named ‘Jess the Cat’, and her four kittens Postman Pat, Mrs Goggins, Miss Hubbard and Granny Dryden after the popular children’s TV show.
The Mayhew is reminding pet owners that neutering their cats is vital in order to reduce the stray and feral kitten populations.
You may also want to watch:
Unneutered owned cats will go outside and breed with local stray and feral cats, leading to litters being born in gardens and abandoned buildings and therefore becoming vulnerable to the outside elements.
Anyone with concerns about abandoned litters, or animal welfare enquiries can call 020 8969 0178 and can book a low-cost neutering appointment at The Mayhew’s vet clinic on 020 8968 2447.
If you would like to adopt any of the animals in the charity’s care please call 020 8969 0178 or visit www.themayhew.org.
