The long haired cat - who has been named Millie - was found in a bus shelter near Kingstanding Road Police Station. The bus stop is located outside Lydons Vets. She was dumped with a cat carrier and a note reading ‘I am a one year old stray, I need a loving home thank you’. RSPCA inspector Elizabeth Boyd said: “Millie is a lovely, friendly cat, she is now being cared for at an RSPCA animal centre and is doing really well.

“She is in good condition and has a nice temperament so it may be likely that someone has abandoned her rather than her being a stray. “If anyone does recognise this cat we would urge them to get in touch with us in confidence by phoning the inspectorate line on 0300 123 8018.” Every year the RSPCA is called out to rescue thousands of animals across England and Wales after their owners abandon them in 2015, the RSPCA collected 4,521 abandoned cats.
