Cat found stuffed in dufflebag and dumped in bin

Loving moggy left terrified by ordeal.

A YOUNG cat was discovered cowering in terror after heartless thugs stuffed it in a rucksack and dumped it in a dustbin.

The moggy was found by a passerby in Stamford Hill on August 27 who spotted the bag moving and opened it.

The black cat, thought to be one to two years old, was found bent double inside and the RSPCA was immediately called.

Named Duffle by staff at Central and North East London RSPCA where he now resides, the semi-long haired feline is on the lookout for new owners to take care of him following a traumatic event.

Jenny Eden, of Central and North East London RSPCA, said: “Too many people think they can dump their pets like rubbish when they no longer want them. Duffle was squashed into a small rucksack and thrown into a bin - if no one had seen the bag moving he would be dead.

“We have no idea how long he was in the bin for but he had been squeezed in and the bag had been zipped up so it was obviously deliberate, he had been discarded like a piece of garbage.

“He’s a beautiful, friendly boy despite his ordeal and he loves a cuddle. Now needs someone to give him a loving home.”

Duffle is one of the dozens of cats and kittens in the branch’s care looking for new homes. To try to encourage adopters to come forward the RSPCA branch is waiving the usual �50 adoption fee and offering neutered and micro chipped adult cats free, subject to a satisfactory home check, in September.
