Kitten tied up in a bag and thrown in a bin in North London

The RSPCA is appealing for information after an 8 week old tabby kitten was found tied up in a plastic bag and thrown in someone’s bin in south Tottenham.

The terrified kitten was discovered at around 1pm on Sunday 1 October on Kitchener Road, Tottenham, North London by a member of the public who found the bag inside his bin after hearing it rustling around inside.

He called the RSPCA and animal rescue officer (ARO) Neil Coleman collected the kitten and put notices up in the area. She was taken to a local centre where she has been named Chanel.

Neil said: “This is appalling and whoever is responsible must be callous to discard a kitten and throw her away like rubbish.

“If it wasn’t for this member of the public finding her, she would have suffered a lengthy and terrifying death.

“I am just hoping someone may have seen something suspicious and can help me with my investigation. We think the kitten could have been in there for up to 24 hours, she was absolutely terrified.

“I am also appealing to see if anyone knows of anyone who had a tabby kitten like this but is no longer in possession of her.”

Anyone with information should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018, quoting reference number 1162260.
