Arriva Trains and the RSPCA are trying to find a new home for a kitten who was found abandoned in a sports bag on a Penarth-bound train

The kitten – a grey and white male – was discovered when the train, which had set out from Rhymney, arrived in  Cardiff at 18.31,  just three stops away  from what was his ultimate destination –  Penarth .

There was no sign of whoever had abandoned him on the train.

Railway staff  imaginatively christened the little cat “Station”  and called in the RSPCA . A veterinary inspection revealed the little animal is only about 6 weeks old, had not been given enough to eat and was “poorly” .

The RSPCA has now taken him into their temporary care at Newport where he’s reported to be recovering,  eating heartily and  “doing really well”.

They now believe the kitten was “deliberately abandoned” on the train  but have now taken to social media in the hope that someone, somewhere recognises him. Meanwhile they’re hoping someone may come forward to offer “Station” a new home (and very possibly a new name).

As the little kitten was originally headed for Penarth, it’s hoped that perhaps someone in the town may be able to take care of him. The RSPCA information line is on 0300 123 8018.

    Punish it for travelling without a ticket.
    If you catch them young enough it will be a lesson for life.

    How sad, I can’t believe that there was not a curry house in the Rhymney valley that would have taken him in, they are so much nicer when they are young, bones not so crunchy, etc., but i’m sure that there is one in Penarth that will help out.
    Only joking of course……they are much better in a pie 🙂 🙂🙂
    Opps, better duck I think, ‘cos now the kitty litter will fly !!!!!

    What is going on with the comments here? Starting to get ridiculous! I thought of an idiotic thing to say but realised it had already been said. Several times.
