The RSPCA is appealing for information after a kitten was dumped outside a veterinary practice in London.
The kitten who has been nicknamed Raccoon by staff, was found dumped in a pet carrier outside Medivet in Enfield on Monday 19 November.
RSPCA Inspector Jemima Cooper went to collect the little kitty, thought to be 10 – 12 weeks-old. She said: “This little white kitten was found early in the morning on Monday having been dumped in a carrier outside the veterinary practice in the dark.
“Vets at the surgery checked her over as she had sore, gunky eyes and evidence of old fractures. She was underweight and frightened. We have no idea who left her there or why they abandoned her but we’re appealing for anyone with any information as to where she’s come from to get in touch.”
Inspector Cooper took the little kitten to the charity’s Harmsworth Animal Hospital in north London where she’s now receiving treatment and being monitored.
Posters have been put up in the local area and Racoon’s details have been posted on PetsLocated in case an owner is missing her as she was not microchipped.
If no one comes forward to claim her, then once she’s back to full health, she’ll move to a rehoming centre to find a new owner.
Raccoon is not yet available for rehoming so the hospital asks the public not to contact them to enquire as this may block emergency calls coming through.
The RSPCA said that anyone who can help to establish Raccoon’s history is urged to contact the charity’s appear line on 0300 123 8018.
