In 2010-2011, RSPCA Tasmania destroyed almost 53% of the cats ir received, and closed down the Burnie Cat Shelter in the north west of Tasmania, meaning anyone neesding to leave cats and kittens has to do a more than one hour round trip to Devonport, a run down shelter that is not set up for cats. The premises were given to the RSPCA for the specific purpose - caring for cats - by an elderly couple, and the surviving widow is said to be devastated by the RSPCA's plan to sell of the premises for top dollar. At the same time, RSPCA Tasmania increased its bloated bureaucracy by appointing a business trainee who, of course, looks just so pretty in the media.

Hypocritical RSPCA Tasmania urges lucky break for black cats

TO COMBAT any bad luck that Friday the 13th might bring, RSPCA Tasmania suggests adopting a black kitten.

RSPCA's Launceston Animal Care Centre manager Lorraine Hamilton said the shelter was brimming with adult cats and kittens patiently awaiting a new home.

``The best thing is they come desexed, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and ready to love,'' Mrs Hamilton said.

``In March, we had 77 cats and kittens adopted, which is almost double the regular number.

``We'd love it if April could match that number.

``After all, the more animals we find loving homes for, the more animals in need we are able to take care of.''

There are more than 100 furry felines ready for adoption at the RSPCA's Launceston shelter.
