The RSPCA is appealing for information after two cats were dumped in Houghton Regis.
They were found hidden in a discarded cat carrier at Georgina Service Station in the High Street on Wednesday afternoon. The animal welfare charity would like help from the public in tracing the cats’ owner.
RSPCA Inspector Jaime Godfrey is investigating and said: “They were placed with the door of the cat carrier against a wall which suggests the person who put them there was trying to make it less obvious that there were cats left inside.
“It seems like a deliberate case of dumping unwanted pets, which is obviously against the law, and I’d like to know who would do a thing like this. The two cats are in good condition and both very different. The black one is very lively and friendly, while the tabby and white cat is quiet and timid.
“Neither animal has a collar or micro-chip so we really need the help of someone local who may recognise these animals.”
If you can help trace the owner of these cats, call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message for Inspector Jaime Godfrey. The RSPCA is only able to help animals dumped like this thanks to generous donations from the public.
