A member of the public found the box, with holes punched into it, in Queen’s Park on March 19.

Fortunately, this person decided to take the hamsters home and out of the cold until an RSPCA inspector could arrive.

Insp Callum Isitt said: “We would like to hear from anyone who recognises these poor hamsters or who has any information about how they came to be abandoned. They can contact the RSPCA in confidence anytime on 0300 123 8018.

“I have put posters up around the park and in the local area to see if anyone comes forward but if not we will be looking to rehome these hamsters.”

In an appearent message to the people who abandoned the hamsters, the charity added: “Hamsters can make wonderful pets but the RSPCA urges anyone thinking of taking one on to do their research, as is the case with any pet, before taking one home.”
