Heartwarming story: Kittens rescued at River Square


Meet River & Square – two adorable male kittens rescued from being trapped between River Square Shopping Centre’s walls.

After some construction took place in the shopping centre, River was first to be rescued. An hour or so later, Square was reunited with his brother.

50 Shades of Spay was contacted soon after River Square had rescued the kittens. They were both welcomed with loving arms by Yvette Wilde who started 50 Shades of Spay in 2014.

“It all started by initially assisting people with sterilizing their animals. 50 Shades of Spay changed shape throughout the years. Whilst the main emphasis is on sterilization, I am also able to assist with community emergencies as in the case of River & Square.”

Along with Yvette, River and Square took a road trip to a friend at Baxter’s Bark & Breakfast (she loves cats just as much as Yvette). Together they decided that the kittens weren’t sick or injured and once they have been declared healthy by their vet, they’d be put up for adoption.

Even though these two kittens haven’t had a positive start in life, they’ll soon be up for adoption in the hopes of finding their furever home.

Unfortunately this is not the outcome for most kittens born to feral mommies. They often die of cold, starvation and illness. This feral mom did a great job as both the kittens are in very good condition.

“If anybody has an unwanted cat. Do the right thing and take it to your local SPCA. Feral cats actually perform a very good service to humans if they have been sterilized and there is somebody that puts food down for them. They keep rats, snakes and cockroaches at bay. But like anything else they do need some care.
Thank you to River Square Shopping Center for caring enough to make a difference.

Raise a helping hand. Spay & Neuter – help those that cannot help themselves.
