A distressed cat was found dumped in Welwyn Garden City with a handwritten note pleading for someone to give the unwanted animal a home.
The RSPCA is appealing for information after the black cat was found abandoned in a urine soaked cat carrier and dumped in an underpass in Welwyn Garden City last Saturday, November 17.
The unwanted pet was found in the locked plastic carrier, with a urine soaked blue and grey hoodie and some dog biscuits.
He was also found with a note which read: “Please, please give me a home! Thank you very much!”
RSPCA Inspector Jaime Godfrey, who is now appealing for information, said: “The cat was in an okay condition apart from being soaked in urine and clearly distressed and scared.
“There is never an excuse to abandon an animal in this way.
“We understand that people’s circumstances can change but dumping him like this is cruel and callous.
“We are appealing for anyone who may have seen anything in Harwood Hill on Saturday, November 17, at about 7.30pm to get in contact with us, or anyone who may recognise the cat, or the hoodie.
“If you have any information which may help us, please call the inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.”
The six-year-old cat, who has now been named Midnight by RSPCA staff is being cared for at RSPCA Southridge Animal Centre.
If an owner is not found then he will be rehomed.
