The Mayhew Animal Home are looking after six-month-old moggy abandoned in White City
A kitten dumped in a bin bag is in the care of an animal sanctuary in Kensal Green two days after the charity highlighted an increase in abandoned pets.
The six-month-old moggy arrived at the Mayhew Animal Home today after she discovered in a box in the tied up bag in White City, west London.
Yesterday, The Mayhew, which is based in Trenmar Gardens, urged pet owners to seek help if they can’t cope with their animals after a litter of kittens was dumped over the weekend.
The five four-week-old kittens were abandoned in a crumpled, open box in the bin area of a housing estate in Westbourne Park on Saturday.
The Mayhew runs many initiatives to help pet owners and provides free and low cost neutering appointments to tackle the pet overpopulation crisis, and the subsequent high number of abandoned litters being tossed aside with the rubbish.
Zoe Edwards, the Mayhew’s managing animal welfare officer, said: “Over the last month we have dealt with so many cases of abandoned, young animals.

“With a charity like The Mayhew offering help and advice to all pet owners and providing low cost and free neutering and vaccinations, there is no excuse for the people who are continuing to discard their pets.
“We are appealing for everyone to realise that neutering saves lives as a neutered pet means no unwanted litters. Anyone can approach us for advice and we are always happy to help.”
