Appeal for information after sick kitten found in bin bag

a black kitten held by a Scottish SPCA staff member

We are appealing for information after a black, semi long-haired kitten was found in a bin bag in Newmilns, East Ayrshire.

We were alerted to the incident after a member of the public found the kitten abandoned next to a disused railway line on 16 September.

Scottish SPCA inspector McIntyre, said, “This male kitten was found abandoned in a black bin bag, and is approximately 10 weeks old.

“He is very thin and has severe anaemia. He also had a high flea infestation and was covered in maggot eggs when he was found.

“Unfortunately this kitten is not microchipped, and was not wearing a collar when he was found.

“We understand that vet bills can cause worry, but this is not the way to give up an animal.

“If anyone recognises this kitten or has any information about this incident, we would ask that they contact 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.
