Stuffed into a bag like rubbish, these cute kittens have been found abandoned at a railway station.

Two plastic clothes carriers were discovered in a shelter at Westenhanger station, near Folkestone.

The seven cats and kittens were all either pure black short hairs or tabbies.

They were found by a passerby, who took them to a cattery in Ashford and contacted the RSPCA.

The bags holding the cats had no identification and there was no CCTV at the station when they were dumped, last Tuesday.

RSPCA animal welfare officer Tina Nash said: "This was a callous abandonment of these cats.

"The person who did this had no idea when or if someone would investigate the contents of their abandoned bags.

"If someone saw anyone walking to the station with carriers like these or witnessed them sitting in the shelter can they please call our inspector information line in confidence on 0300 123 8018."
