The RSPCA is appealing for information after a mother and two young kittens were found dumped today (May 22).
Fortunately the cats were found by a dog walker and rescued by local RSPCA inspector Stephen Reeves at around 1.30pm.
The mum and two young kittens were found in Mereway off Milton Road, Impington
They were dumped alongside a cardboard box with a pink jumper inside.
Inspector Reeves said: “This was a senseless act - the person who has done this clearly had no thought for the poor cats’ well-being. They were lucky to be found.

“When I got there the kittens were hiding in a large area of stinging nettles but fortunately were tempted by some food. Mum was very distressed and nervous and needed to be caught in a trap as I couldn’t get close.
“They would have struggled to survive as they are obviously used to being in a house.”
