ABANDONED cats are on the lookout for a new home after being dumped by their owner.

Male ginger cat Gingerbread and female tortie Naughty Girl were found stranded in a cat carrier on a walkway in Tring.

The pair, who were discovered by the RSPCA at around 10pm on Monday, November 15, were in a black wire cage with red handles.

The feline friends were found with no food or water and only had newspaper in their cage.

RSPCA animal welfare officer (AWO) Julie Britnell, said: “Fortunately these two cats were found by a passer-by.

“They were left on a night when the weather had started to turn very cold, and they were left without any food, water or blankets.

“It is very sad that someone has just left them to fend for themselves and not seek appropriate help instead.

She added: “Both the cats are really friendly and in good condition.

“If anyone is struggling to cope with their animals they should seek help at the earliest opportunity.

“There are numerous charities around that would be able to offer help and support.”

Both cats have been taken to the RSPCA Blackberry Farm Animal Centre in Aylesbury.
