The RSPCA is appealing for information after two kittens were found abandoned in a black holdall bag near an allotment in Yaxley near Peterborough. The kittens were found at around 9pm on January 30 near to the allotments near Holme Road by a member of the public, who took the kittens home and kept them safe.

The incident was reported to the RSPCA and Animal Rescue Officer Naomi Sadoff attended. She collected the kittens and took them to a vet for check-up.

The kittens are thought to be five or six months old. One is a black female and the other a white male with a tabby tail and tabby spot on his head.

Both cats were very friendly but were covered in fleas.

Naomi said: “We are grateful to the member of the public who found these poor kittens and kept them safe.

“They had been found inside a black holdall bag and there were some biscuits inside. Neither cat was microchipped.

“Both kittens were very friendly and it’s so sad to think someone just abandoned them in this way.”

Last year, the charity received 20,999 reports of an abandoned animal – more than in 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Naomi added: “We understand the financial difficulties some people are experiencing right now, however abandoning your pet is never the answer. There is help and support available and – as we all strive to create a better world for every animal – we would urge people to contact their vets, local rescues, and animal welfare charities.

“Anyone who has information about the two kittens call the RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018 quoting incident 1216332.”

Both cats are now being cared for by the RSPCA.

  • This year the RSPCA celebrates its 200th birthday. To mark this special anniversary the animal welfare charity wants to inspire one million people to join their movement to improve animals’ lives.
