Kitten thrown in rescue charity shop door
Staff at the Spotty Dog Cat Rescue received the shock of their lives just before the weekend when a man drove up to the cat rescue charity shop in Holbeach Lincolnshire and threw a kitten through the open door then told staff to "look after it"!
Owner Janet Green said "My volunteer was so shocked. When he first told me what happened I thought he was pulling my leg. I thought surely no one would do that but they did." She describes the man came into the shop on Thursday afternoon as in his twenties and he may have driven off in a small white van. "Credit to him for not dumping it on the roadside but it's still not good behaviour" she added.
The black kitten has been named Pandora and is now looking for a new home. Hopefully her next one won't be as brief as her time with her clearly heartless previous owner. Of course this isn't the first case of similar shocking behaviour where owners have abandoned animals on doorsteps, but it's the first time we've heard of someone throwing an animal through a rescue charity's door!
