THIS cute cat and her kitten are today looking for a new home after they were abandoned outside the RSPCA animal centre in Martlesham.

The black and white mother cat, which has been named Chloe by staff, and her 11-week-old son, Kipper, were dumped in a cat carrier outside the gates of the animal centre in Mill Lane on Tuesday July 31.

A note attached to the box did not name the cats but said the mother had been spayed since having the kitten.

Staff at the centre are now looking for anyone willing to rehome the pets.

Kieron Adams, the centre manager, said: “Both cats are lovely, but a little timid. We could separate them, but it would be much nicer if they could stay with each other and be rehomed together in a new loving home.

“It is always distressing when owners have to give their pets away, but even more bewildering for the animals when they are just suddenly left alone. Abandoning animals is never an option.”
