Thankfully our Major Investigations Team arrived just in time to help. They very quickly transported Barley, and eight other kittens, into the care and safety of RSPCA vets.
RSPCA Veterinarian Dr Kiki examined Barley and found she was suffering with conjunctivitis, ringworm and a serious ear infection. Most of the other kittens had chest infections, along with other ailments.
Dr Kiki estimates the cost of restoring them all to health and preparing them for adoption ended up being over tens of thousands of dollars.
Thanks to you, Barley got a second chance at love and the happy home all animals like her deserve.
Today, Barley’s new family tell us she is “a lady of leisure” who brings so much joy to her adopted family.
The kitten traders responsible were held to account and found guilty of several charges related to illegal selling activities and animal cruelty.
Outcomes like this are what makes the RSPCA’s work so important - and I really hope you’ll help again today to make more happy endings like this possible.
