The RSPCA is appealing for information after a cat was dumped at a Tesco store in Nottingham City Centre.
A man with his hood up walked into the Tesco Metro store in Victoria Centre at 6.30pm on Saturday 2 January and put a blue carrier bag containing the cat next to the counter, before walking away.
The black and white female cat - thought to be aged about two - is in good health and is currently in the RSPCA’s care. She has been named Victoria after the shopping centre where she was dumped.
This was a very unusual thing to happen, as the Victoria Centre is a busy place so someone must have seen this man walking into the shopping centre with a cat in a blue pet carrier."

Two pregnant sheep inhumanely killed in a Northamptonshire field were butchered for their meat, police have said.
The animals were attacked at some point overnight on Monday, December 28, in a field off Horton Road in Denton. Their remains were found at 8am the next morning (December 29).
"This type of incident has happened a number of times over the past 18 months in the Denton and Brafield-on-the-Green areas.
"I would ask residents to contact the police if they see any suspicious people or vehicles near fields with sheep in them and to call us if they are offered cheap meat not from a butchers.
"In this latest attack, the two sheep were pregnant and would have been terrified. It certainly was not a humane way for them to be killed."
A cat from Wellingborough has been shot with a pellet gun for the second time this year.
Charlie the cat was shot in the Oak View area sometime between 8.45am and 3.50pm on Tuesday, December 15.
As a result of the attack, he had to have an eye removed and a pellet was found lodged in his neck.
The pellet also injured his mouth.
Charlie, who is described as a very friendly cat, was also shot with a pellet in February this year, when he also received injuries to his face.
Officers investigating the case believe he may be being targeted as there are other cats in the area who have not been shot at.
Witnesses, or anyone who knows anything about this incident can call Northamptonshire Police on 101.
