RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after three very young kittens were found abandoned in a box in a lane in Caerphilly.
The kittens, two of which are tabby and one black, were found by a member of the public on Friday (3 November), in the Ffordd Erw area of the South Wales town.
RSPCA Cymru is urging anyone with information about how the three kittens came to be abandoned in this way to contact the RSPCA’s inspectorate appeal line.
All three are currently being hand-reared due to their tender age – with the kittens all thought to be between two-and-a-half and three weeks.
Selina Griffiths, RSPCA inspector, said: “These little kittens were screaming, and appeared very unsettled, when RSPCA Cymru collected them.
“It’s unthinkable why anybody would deem it acceptable to dump these poor defenceless kittens in a lane like this.
“Sadly, this is one of a number of dumped cat and kitten incidences RSPCA Cymru officers have been responding to – following abandonments in recent days in Newport and Dolgellau.
“We’re eager to find out what happened to these kittens – and we’re urging anyone in the Caerphilly area with information to contact our inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018. Calls to this number are treated in confidence.”
