RSPCA inspector Mike Scargill said: “It is very concerning that someone dumped Maggie like she was rubbish.

“She had been placed inside a bin bag, which was put inside a cat carrier that had been sealed with gaffer tape. Given that someone went to these lengths to get rid of her, it is likely that whoever did this did so with the intention of leaving her to die.

“We don’t know how long the cat was in there for, but there was a lot of urine and faeces inside the cat carrier. She is very, very lucky that she was found as she was just dumped amongst rubbish in the street and it is likely many people walked past without realising there was an animal inside there.

“Sadly, we have since heard that she miscarried her kittens which is likely to be as a result of her traumatic experience.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
