Cat and her babies found dumped in Gloucester
A cat and her babies have been found dumped in Gloucester.
The RSPCA is appealing for information on how they came to be dumped.
A shivering mother cat and her two kittens were found abandoned on a bench in Berkeley Street this week.
The cats had been wrapped tightly in a pink paw print blanket and left on a bench in the town centre.

Luckily they were spotted by an eagle-eyed member of the public who took them home and called the RSPCA.
RSPCA inspector Rachel Heywood said: “The mother and kittens were left right next to the police station but no-one saw who dumped them, or when. By the time they were found they were obviously very distressed and frightened.
“Thank goodness for the swift actions of the passer-by - who did exactly the right thing in getting them home and warm and calling us,” she added.
The cats are currently in the care of the RSPCA and are responding well to some TLC.
The cats appear to have been well-cared for. The mother cat has recently had an operation and all three were in good body condition and litter trained - so the RSPCA are unsure how they came to be abandoned on the bench.
Anyone with information about where the cats came from should contact the RSPCA inspector information line on 0300 123 8018.
If the owner cannot be found, then the family who found them have offered to give them a forever home.
