    Stop these foreign immigrants stowing away across the channel

    Stop these foreign immigrants stowing away across the channel 15th Sep 17 at 7:10 AM




    An appeal has been made to save three Dutch kittens who ended up in the UK after stowing away in a car engine.
    The trio - named Edam, Gouda and Tulip - were discovered by car mechanics after surviving the 311-mile journey from Eindhoven to Bracknell, Berkshire.
    Christian Lampkin and his family drove home without knowing the six-week-old cats were hidden inside the vehicle.
    After being quarantined, a pet charity is raising money to ensure the "sweet kitty babies are not put to sleep".


    As they are illegal, and have no pet passports, they have had to be put into quarantine.
    £3000 that will cost, and who's paying for that?

    I wonder if the car owner will be fined for allowing stowaways to enter the UK?

    I am sure that there will be no end of offers to rehome these ne'er-do-wells, who are obviously here not to escape any dreadful oppression against felines in the Netherlands, but purely because of the free food and housing they will get over here.

    I expect it will now encourage other kittens to make the same daring attempts to cross the channel.

    Where will it end? We already have more than enough cats in the UK!

    It's worse than you think, these are the second stowaways (that we know of) in the last few months.

    There's obviously some kind of kitten trafficking ring, we need to pounce on the top cat before we're overrun.

    Polish kittens, Dutch kittens.......

    Is there a makeshift cattery on the waterfront at The Hague, full of cardboard boxes, where all these felines are camping out, waiting their chance?

    I blame the media. When they realise they've been given a false impression of Hamsterdam and Ratterdam they move here.

    Doing the same job for less Whiskers.

    Not only rodent-catching, but in the cuteness stakes too. People think khat is a drug, it's actually kittens insinuating themselves into people's lives and turning them into slaves. They're slowly taking over the country by stealth.
