Could you have thrown her away?
This is one of two kittens found in a skip at Thetford Recycling Centre two weeks ago.
Staff at the Feline Care Cat Rescue Centre in East Harling have since dubbed the pair Laura and Carla - after members of staff - but are growing increasingly concerned that owners are dumping cats after another kitten was found in the same skip on Tuesday.
Molly Farrar, manager, said: “We are worried they are being dumped because this one has domestic traits.
“There’s an increase in dumped animals and rescue centres are stretched to full capacity. At some point the public needs to take responsbility,” she said.
The kitten found on Tuesday was sitting on an armchair to stay out of a foot of water in the skip.
He was safely collected by staff and all the cats are recuperating at the centre.
