RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after two kittens were found locked in a suitcase in a Pontypool Park.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA after they found the two kittens at Pontypool Park.

RSPCA inspector Kate Parker said: “The caller found the kittens in an old suitcase around 2pm on 24 September. The kittens are around eight weeks old and are female and were found to be suffering from diarrhoea. We don’t know how long they were there for.

Kittens Pontypool 2“We are not sure what has happened here, but it seems likely these kittens were dumped. It must have been awful for these kittens to have been trapped in a suitcase, they are lucky to have survived.”

The kittens have been taken into RSPCA care and have received a health check at RSPCA’s Merthyr Tydfil Clinic. They were scanned for a microchip but they did not have one, so we can’t identify their owner.

Anyone who may have information about these kittens should contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls are treated in confidence.

The RSPCA would like to remind people to get their pets microchipped to give their lost pets the chance of returning home. It is also important to register the chip with a national database and update your contact details if you move or change phone number.
