The young adult male tabby was discovered inside a cat box, in six inches of water in Spalding, at 8.30am on Monday. The RSPCA was called, and has taken him into our care.

He was unhurt and in good health, and he looks as if he has been cared for, so it is possible he is a much loved pet and that someone else dumped him in this callous way.
