AN ABANDONED cat was forced to give birth to four kittens in an empty house.

AN ABANDONED cat was forced to give birth to four kittens in an empty house.

Eliza, a young tabby, has been pregnant twice before, and went into labour on her own after her human family abandoned her.

Weston & District Cats Protection took the kittens into a foster home but Eliza, who is only 18 months old, could not be found. Fortunately, a few days later a neighbour found her and the family was soon reunited.

Re-homing officer Anne Bunn said: "Sadly this is not an isolated case. We will be swamped with calls about stray or unwanted pregnant cats and aggressive un-neutered males, and it is impossible to help them all."

Female cats should be neutered between four and six months.
