RECENTLY I visited the Hungry Horse between York and Skelton for a birthday meal for one of my children, during the course of which she and her brother noticed a kitten playing outside the rear entrance, which was quickly joined by a further three and their mother.
Surprise and delight quickly turned to concern when it was realised these animals were abandoned and apparently surviving on scraps fed them by customers.
A helpful and courteous member of staff told me that the RSPCA had been informed of the plight of the kittens and their mother but had done nothing because they were on private land.
Assuming this information to be correct, I did not realise creatures in need were beyond the help of the RSPSA because of their whereabouts.
Clearly the kittens and their mother are in urgent need of help and it is difficult to understand why they have been refused. The meal by the way was excellent, but spoilt by our concern over the fate these kittens and their mother.
