RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a grey-and-white kitten was found on the Rhymney to Penarth train last night (28 September).

RSPCA animal collection officer Gary Lucas said: “This poor kitten was found on the train in a bag last night at around 7.15pm and was then taken off the train at Cardiff Central Station. He must have been so scared on his own.

“I took Station immediately to an independent vets, where he is currently receiving treatment. When I took him in he had runny eyes and was lethargic, but he is doing well really today and is alert and is eating well. Kitten found on Rhymney to Penarth train Sept16 pic2

“It sadly does appear that he may have been abandoned on the train – but we are appealing for information to try and find out what happened as someone could have forgotten him. Someone may have seen who was carrying the bag or may recognise the kitten.”
