The RSPCA is asking for help from the public for information following three kittens who were left abandoned in a cat carrier near dustbins in Perivale.
They were discovered by a member of the public on 13 October 2023 at around 3:30pm, who called the RSPCA.
Animal Rescue Officer (ARO) Phil Heyes who came out to rescue them said: “The kittens are about 3 months old, two tabbies and a tortoiseshell. They were discovered in an empty cat carrier with wet food tipped in – so whoever has dumped them must’ve done it not long before they were discovered.”
Officer Heyes added: “We would like to hear from anyone who was in the area on 13 October and might have seen the kittens being dumped, or anyone who recognises the kittens. We urge anyone with information to contact RSPCA’s appeals line on 0300 123 8018, quoting reference 01169234.
“We know that times are tough, but abandoning animals is never the answer – if these poor kittens hadn’t been found, they might not have had such a happy ending. There is lots of help and advice for people struggling with their pets and people should always get in touch with local animal welfare groups if they need help. Neutering is also essential to prevent unwanted litters like this one.”
The RSPCA said the kittens were taken to RSPCA Finsbury Park Animal Hospital where they were treated for fleas. Staff have named them Lita, Jeff and Matt and are now at an RSPCA branch centre ready for rehoming.
