The bundle of fluff, who has been named Russell, was discovered by a concerned resident of Mottram Close.

Collection officer (ACO) Paige Burnham attended and collected the kitten, she said: 'This little boy is just adorable. We've no idea where he has come from but he shouldn't be outside on his own at such a young age, he's probably only four weeks old.

'When I collected him he was shaking, scared and very hungry, he broke my heart but despite his ordeal, he is in good condition.'

She added: 'The RSPCA Norwich and Mid Norfolk Branch are now caring for Russell and hopefully once old enough we can find him a loving new home.'
