A woman has been seen throwing a kitten out of a car before driving off near Southampton. At about 6:10pm yesterday evening a silver Vauxhall Zafira shaped car with a black roof box was seen by a fellow driver pulling into the entrance of St. Bernard’s Church on Southbourne Avenue in Holbury.
A female then opened the car door and threw the young kitten out of the vehicle before quickly driving off. The terrified six month-old kitten was picked up by the person in the car behind before being taken to a local vet practice.
Anyone with any further information about this incident is being urged to contact the RSPCA inspector appeal line immediately on 0300 123 8018.

Two girls who filmed themselves throwing a kitten across a room have been found guilty of cruelty to the animal at a youth court in Maidstone.
The 15 and 16 year olds from the Isle of Sheppey laughed as they tossed the terrified animal between them, and then posted the video on Facebook.
They were fined £85 each. You may find some of the pictures upsetting. Sarah Saunders reports and speaks to Ch Insp Steve Dockery from the RSPCA.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service have rescued a 6-week-old kitten after it became trapped in an "underground wall cavity" in a property in Millbrook in Southampton.
It took specialist officers just under 2 hours to retrieve the kitten.
It's not known how it came to be stuck in the cavity.
