RSPCA Appeal After Kittens Abandoned at Tennis Courts

The two kittens were dumped at Hammersmith Park in London

The RSPCA is appealing for information after two kittens were found abandoned in a cat carrier by some tennis courts at Hammersmith Park.

The two kittens, one ginger and white and one black and white, were found inside a cat carrier by a concerned member of the public on Wednesday (2 November) at around 8.30am.

The male kittens, which are around five months old, were then rescued by RSPCA animal rescue officer Holly Walker who took them to the RSPCA Central London Branch for some much needed TLC.

Holly said: “These two young cats were abandoned in a cat carrier by some tennis courts. Thankfully, they were spotted by a dog walker who realised they had been dumped and contacted us for help.

“They are such sweet, cute kittens and it’s so sad to see they have been given up and abandoned in this way. Thankfully they are in good condition and are now getting the care and attention they need at our local branch.

“We know that times are tough at the moment and people are struggling financially which means they may no longer be able to afford to keep their pets, however, there is never an excuse to abandon an animal like this. We would urge anyone who is struggling to please reach out for help from friends and family and charities.

“We have lots of advice on our Cost of Living Hub, as well as links to local food banks which provide pet food and how to get discounted veterinary treatment for those who are struggling.”

The RSPCA has sadly seen a reduction in the number of pets being rehomed; and an increase in animal intake via the frontline inspectorate. Worryingly, the animal welfare charity fears many of the animals being picked up by their officers are linked to the cost of living crisis – particularly abandoned animals.

The kittens are doing well in the care of the RSPCA now and have been named Phineas and Ferb. They are sweet and friendly kittens who will be rehomed once they are ready.

Now the RSPCA is appealing for anyone with information about this incident to please contact them on the inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
