Kitten found in shoe box


The black and white fluffy kitten, who was taped inside a shoebox and dumped at a bus stop on the edge of Havering, has been renamed Louboutin after being rescued by the RSCPA.

Louboutin was found at a bus stop outside a garden centre in South Road, South Ockenden, last Thursday.

She was found by a member of a public in a Kickers shoebox with its lid taped shut with silver duct tape.

RSPCA Inspector Marie Hammerton said: “The person that called us heard a noise in the box, so had a peer through one of the tiny holes and saw a little eye peeping back at them.

“There was no cat mess in the box which suggests to me she’d not been there long.

“She’s in very good condition. She’s such a gorgeous playful little thing it is incredible to think someone would just dump her like that.

“She will be up for rehoming shortly and I’m sure she will be snapped up.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RSPCA Cruelty Hotline on 0300 123 8018.
