Kitten dies after being dumped with family in cage near A71

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after three cats were found abandoned inside a cage on Allanton Road in Shotts, North Lanarkshire, last Monday.

The mother cat and her two kittens were riddled with fleas and had numerous health issues.

One of the kittens was too sick to recover, and had to be put to sleep.

Animal rescue officer Dawn Juma said: “The female cat was found with her two offspring inside a cage off the A71.

“They had been left on the eastbound side of the road heading in the Edinburgh direction.

“We are very grateful to the person who alerted us to the cats and stayed with them until we arrived.

Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006.

Anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

If you have any information, call the Scottish SPCA’s confidential helpline on 03000 999 999.
