Five week old cat found abandoned in a taped box

Animal centres in Kent say they have run out of space to care for abandoned, sick or injured cats. This cat was found abandoned in a taped box when it was just five weeks old.

Becky Blackmore, from the RSPCA said, "our local RSPCA branches never put a cat to sleep if it can be rehomed. However, resources are now so stretched that we need the public to support us to ensure we can continue to provide this service for unwanted, abandoned sick and injured cats in Kent."
