Some Jerk Left Five Abandoned Kittens Zipped In A Suitcase On The Street

Today in miserable situations: five abandon kittens zipped inside a suitcase were discovered in Cardiff, Wales. A passerby happened to see the suitcase on a back street and opened it, only to find the nine-week-old kitties peering up from inside. One of them was stuck in the bag’s zipper, another kitty had a sore eye, and all of them had fleas, but they’re lucky to have been found otherwise healthy. The three male and two female cats are now in the care of the animal organization RSPCA, and will likely be put up for adoption shortly. According to the Daily Mail, Rachel Chapman of the RSPCA said “They are lovely kittens …We would rather the person called us first instead of just being irresponsible and abandoning their pets.” She also said the kittens would be available for placement in new homes if their owners don’t come forward. It’s hard for me to imagine that this was an accident (stranger things have happened, I guess) and I sincerely hope that doesn’t mean they intend to ever place the kitties back in the care of whatever colossal asshole got bored of them and dumped them on the street. I think, rather, that the RSPCA is looking for more information to sufficiently punish the creep. It’s one thing to throw helpless kitties on the street when they could be safely dropped off at a shelter, but it’s quite another to leave them trapped in a suitcase with no way to fend for themselves. Ugh, what is wrong with people? If you’re in Cardiff and have any information to share about the kitties or their owner, you can give the RSPCA a call at 0300 1234 999. [Daily Mail UK]
