RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after four kittens were dumped in a crisp box on the side of a Cardiff road.

The 12-week-old black and tortie kittens were spotted in the early hours of Saturday morning (22 October) on the side of the road at Station Road between Llanishen and Lisvane.

“We don’t know how long they were there for, but thankfully they were spotted and a kind passer-by took them home.

“The kittens – one male and three females – have had a vet check and they are in all good health. They are really friendly and are really lovely kittens.

“We’ve decided to name them Wotsit, Pringle, Dorito and Quaver.

“They have not been microchipped so at the moment we can’t identify their owner. Inside the cardboard box there was a red blanket.

“We’re urging anyone with any information to come forward and contact the RSPCA inspectorate information line on 0300 123 8018. Calls will be treated in confidence.”  Kittens box Llanishen Oct16 pic3

The cats are currently at RSPCA’s Merthyr Tydfil Clinic. If an owner is not found the kittens will be made available for rehoming.
