The Crisp Box kittens

Written by on 25th October 2016

RSPCA Cymru are appealing for information after four 12-week old kittens were dumped in a crisp box on the side of a road in a Cardiff suburb.

The black and tortie kittens, which have been named “Pringle”, “Quaver”, “Dorito” and “Wotsit” were spotted in the early hours of Saturday morning (22nd October) on the side of Station Road between Llanishen and Lisvane.

RSPCA inspector Sophie Daniels said:

“These poor kittens must have been so frightened being left alone in a cardboard box in the dark.

“We don’t know how long they were there for, but thankfully they were spotted and a kind passer-by took them home.

“The kittens  – one male and three females – have had a vet check and they are in all good health. They are really friendly and are really lovely kittens.

“We’ve decided to name them Wotsit, Pringle, Dorito and Quaver.

“They have not been microchipped so at the moment we can’t identify their owner. Inside the cardboard box there was a red blanket.

“We’re urging anyone with any information to come forward and contact the RSPCA inspectorate information line on 0300 123 8018. Calls will be treated in confidence.”

The cats are currently at RSPCA’s Merthyr Tydfil Clinic. If an owner is not found the kittens will be made available for rehoming.
