RSPCA appeal for witnesses after 12 kittens were dumped in Amblecote
5:00pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
TWELVE kittens that were dumped in a cardboard box in Amblecote are looking for new homes.
The felines were found at around 9.30pm on Tuesday September 24, near to some billboards by Laser Quest, High Street.
They had been left in a large crisp box, which was open at the top with a towel covering it.
It is thought the kittens are between six and seven weeks old and are from at least two litters.
The kind-hearted member of the public who found the kittens took them home for the night and they were collected the by the RSPCA the next day.
RSPCA inspector, Steve Morrall, said: “All these kittens do appear well looked after and well fed and they were left in a place where they would have easily been found. But at the same time they could have easily got out of the box and ran off near to a main road.
“We think that they would have been dumped between 8.30pm and 9.30pm and I would appeal to anyone who has any information regarding who owns these kittens to call the RSPCA. We would also like to thank the kind member of the public who kept the kittens overnight.”
The kittens are currently being cared for at the RSPCA’s animal centre in Shrewsbury.
Anyone with information should call the RSPCA’s appeal line, in confidence, on 0300 123 8018.
Alternatively, anyone interested in offering a kitten a new home is urged to call 0300 123 0753.
