The RSPCA is investigating after a kitten was found tied up in a pillow case on a pile of grass cuttings in Suffolk.

The black kitten, nicknamed Snowy, is thought to be about six months old and was found at Lound near Lowestoft on Thursday 8 September.

The kitten was discovered at around 8am but the pillowcase was reportedly dry, suggesting it had not been there overnight where it would have most likely become damp following the misty weather overnight.

The RSPCA says there were also no footprints around the grass heap, which may also suggest that the kitten had been thrown over the nearby hedge.

“This is a really concerning incident. The kitten was found wearing a collar, but had had no tag or microchip. At this point we don’t know if she was abandoned by her owners, or has been stolen or lost, and then cruelly dumped by somebody else.

“Thankfully the kitten is doing well now she’s in RSPCA care, but why somebody tied her up in a pillowcase and left her alone is mystery, not to mention a really terrible, cruel thing to do.

– Amy Collingsworth, RSPCA deputy chief inspector

The kitten is being cared for at RSPCA Norwich and Mid Norfolk branch.

She is said to be doing very well and is extremely sweet and playful, despite her ordeal.

If no owner comes forward to claim her after seven days, she will then be able to be re-homed when she is ready.
