Cornish Cat Abandoned In Wind And Rain
2:04pm 7th January 2015
A Cornish cat has been abandoned on one of the coldest nights this winter.
Marvin was dumped outside the Duchy's RSPCA centre in St Columb on Saturday night.
He was left only in a small, pink and yellow pet carrier in the wind and rain.
The tabby tomcat was found the next morning, sat in two inches of rain water.
He has been left traumatised and nervous and staff reckon it will take time for him to recover.
Spokesperson Felicity Cross said: "It is so upsetting to think that someone would leave him outside in those horrendous weather conditions overnight. It was very high winds and very heavy rain.
"He was petrified when staff at the centre found him. No one knows just how long he had been left there as he was dumped outside the gates outside of opening hours.
"He wasn't found until staff came in to work at 8am on Saturday morning
"There was no bedding in the carrier and it was left uncovered so he was left soaking wet and sitting in two inches of rainwater.
"This poor boy is still very nervous and traumatised by the whole experience.
We are hoping there is someone out there who knows where he has come from and how he came to be dumped outside the Cornwall branch."
The charity is appealing for anyone with any information about where he might have come from to get in touch.
Anyone with information should contact the RSPCA Inspector Appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
