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.
