Kittens saved from becoming wedding gifts
These kittens were going to be given away by a bride on her wedding day until the RSPCA stepped in.
The three kittens - Mars, Jupiter and Venus arrived at Animal Lifeline in Sutton on Friday August 17.
The two brothers and a sister were due to be given as gifts to the bridesmaids at a wedding in Southall on Saturday.
However, the mother of the bride, concerned for their welfare, called the RSPCA and the kittens were transferred to the safe hands of Christine Redwood.
Mrs Redwood said: "The three little ones came in via the RSPCA as they are absolutely choc-a-block. They were going to a wedding reception on Saturday.
"They were going to be gifts for the bridesmaids and they would be passed around and around - it’s terrible.
"[The bride and groom] were going to give them a kitten each as a present- it’s a joke."
The centre which is usually inundated with animals has also recently received a black kitten that was dumped in a cardboard box in Tooting.
The male kittens have all been neutered and all of them have been micro-chipped and vaccinated.
Home checks are carried out on each person who wants to adopt a cat, they cannot live in a flat and must have a garden.
