A PAIR of adorable moggies are looking for someone to take them in this winter after they were found dumped next to a bin.
The RSPCA’s Southall cattery is appealing to people to look after a deaf kitten named Rio, who needs a helping paw from brother Nate as he acts as his ears as well.
Both cats - one black, the other white - will need to be adopted together as they have formed a strong bond.
The cats must be kept indoors and only allowed out under supervision in an enclosed space like a garden as Rio is in danger of being hit by vehicles, since he cannot hear them approaching.
RSPCA animal care assistant Michelle O’Brien said the brothers have a special connection.
She said: “The bond they have is magical, it’s a unique relationship. Because Rio is deaf he looks to his brother for guidance and really relies on him.
“We haven’t been able to find someone to adopt them, which is a real shame. They have been with us so long it feels like they have grown up in the cattery.”
The pair were part of a litter of five kittens found dumped in a box next to bins in Clarendon Drive, Putney, in June.
Three of the group have been re-homed but Nate and Rio have still not found loving owners.
Anyone who is interested in adopting them can visit the cattery in Burket Close, Southall, which is open from 11am to4.30pm every day except Wednesday.
There is a fee for adopting an animal to cover the cost of neutering, vaccinations and microchipping so cats can be identified if lost.
