A cat was tied up in a duvet cover, put inside a Lidl shopping bag and abandoned at a charity shop.
The young tabby cat was found by chance at the RSPCA shop on Blackstock Road in central London on Friday morning.
The animal is thought to be around a year old and has been named Stuart Lidl by staff who spotted him abandoned in a pile of donations.
Anyone with any information can call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018. Anyone interested in potentially rehoming young Stuart should call the Central and North east London on 07710 294180.
