RSPCA investigates dumped kittens found in Hillingdon park

The RSPCA is conducting an investigation following the discovery of two 10-week-old kittens inside a pink rucksack in Sipson Meadow, Uxbridge.

Sadly, one kitten, passed away shortly after being found, while the surviving black kitten with white paws, named Magic by the discoverers, is now in RSPCA care.

Mark Hanley, RSPCA animal rescue officer highlighted the importance of the public’s role in reporting such cases.

He said, “One was very poorly and sadly died shortly after being found. I took the surviving kitten to the vets for treatment as he was very skinny and had cloudy eyes.

“Thankfully that kitten – named Magic – is well enough to now be taken to a RSPCA foster home, where he will remain until a permanent home is found for him.

“We’re very grateful to the person who called us as it’s unlikely Magic would have survived if he’d been left much longer.

“We are urging members of the public to come forward if they have any information that could help us track down the person responsible”

The RSPCA are asking anyone with information to contact their appeals line at 0300 123 8018, quoting reference 01186480.
