The Scottish SPCA were called out this afternoon to reports of a family of cats stuck on the roof of an Inverness building due to be demolished.

The cats, including up to five kittens, were seen on the roof of a building in Polvanie View, Inverness, causing worried onlookers to call the SPCA to come to their rescue.

Scottish SPCA animal rescue officer, Natalie Munro, said, “We were alerted to a family of cats living in the roof space of a derelict building in Inverness, which is due for demolition.

“Unfortunately the cats and kittens are completely feral so we will need to set cat traps to be able to move them, as they’d be impossible to catch by hand.

“Once we’ve trapped the cats, our plan is to neuter and spay them before hopefully relocating them to a farm or similar rural setting where they can live as mousers.

"A home or cattery environment would be incredibly stressful for feral cats like these.

“If anyone has concerns about an animal in distress they should call our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
