A CAT and kittens are recovering at the RSPCA Newbrook Farm hospital in Frankley after they were found dumped in a bin bag on a Birmingham street.
Kind members of the public waited with the cats after the discovery in Stratford Road, Sparkhill.
RSPCA inspector Boris Laserre rushed to the scene to collect the cats who were just four weeks old.
If the situation was not bad enough for the kittens, someone ran off with one of the youngsters.
The ones at Newbrook are being treated for fleas, worms and eye infections, so it’s very likely the stolen kitten is suffering with similar problems and will urgently need vet care. It will also need care and milk from its mum.
Insp Lasserre said: “ The kind people who waited with the kittens were also very upset and shocked.
“The person who dumped the cats should be ashamed of themselves and the person who took the kitten should not have been so reckless.
The kittens are only a few weeks old and need to be with their mother, it would be extremely difficult for somebody to hand-raise a kitten of that age without a lot of experience.
“The mum is very loving and taking good care of her kittens, and I am urging the person who took the kitten to get in touch and return him or her as soon as possible”.
Anyone with information about how the cat and kittens came to be dumped on Stratford Road, or about the whereabouts of the stolen kitten, can contact the RSPCA in complete confidence on 0300 123 8018.
