THREE kittens were found dumped in the toilets in Worthing railway station.

The RSPCA is appealing for information after the eight-week-old tabby kittens were discovered huddled together in the corner of a cubicle by station staff.

Station group master Jim Cumming said: “It was a bit of a surprise to find these poor little things cowered in the corner of the toilet that morning.

“They were huddled up so tightly together that they were easy to miss, and I don’t know how many people may have walked past them without noticing them. At least no-one hurt them or stepped on them or anything.

“It caused quite a stir that morning. We had them all in the office trying to warm them up a bit, which was lovely, although quite shocking to us all that someone could have just left them to fend for themselves in this way.”

The kittens have been named Lulu, Boggy and Flush by staff caring for them. They are still in a poorly state of health but it is hoped they will soon recover so they can be rehomed.

RSPCA animal welfare officer Marie Stevens said: “Had they not been found when they were who knows what would have happened - we are so grateful to the station staff for the care they showed these little animals.”

Anyone with any information about how the kittens came to be dumped should contact the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.
