Appeal for information after 10 cats found abandoned in Paisley

abandoned cats in Paisley

We are appealing for information after ten cats were found abandoned under the A737 fly over on Blackstoun Road in Paisley.

A member of the public found the cats stuffed into two pet carriers around lunchtime on New Year’s Day.

Scottish SPCA Inspector, Isla Bell, said: “The cats are all a Persian cross and ragdoll cross type of varying ages. Four adult cats were found in one pet carrier and six kittens were found in the other.

“There was no room inside the carriers for them to move and they could have potentially suffocated due to the conditions.

“None of the cats are microchipped or wearing collars.

“The cats are now in the care of one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres and receiving the appropriate treatment.

“If anyone recognises these cats or has any information surrounding their circumstances, they should call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”




If anyone is concerned about an animal, please do not hesitate to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
