‘Drunk’ man dumped kitten outside block of flats as police launch probe

A helpless kitten, only a few months old, was dumped outside a block of flats by an apparently drunk man in a small village on the outskirts of Falkirk on Tuesday, March, 30.

Police are now looking for the man who reportedly placed the creature on a wall before then running away.

The heartless kitten abandonment took place on Main Street in Bainsford, Falkirk, at around 9:30pm on Tuesday. when a man was seen walking down the street with the tiny moggy on his shoulder.

He then took the cat – believed to be called Pixie – off his shoulder and dumped her on a wall. Now an animal welfare charity is appealing for information to catch the culprit.

Scottish SPCA inspector Robyn Myszor told the Daily Record: "The kitten is a black and white female who is only a few months old. She is not microchipped.

"At around 9.30pm on 30 March a member of the public witnessed a man walking along the street with the cat on his shoulder.

"He then put the cat down on the wall outside a block of flats and ran away down an alley next to the nearby Mario’s takeaway.

"The man was around 5”8 with short hair and appeared to have been drinking. He was holding a can of something at the time of the incident. He stated to some bystanders that the kitten’s name was Pixie."

"We appreciate that the man who left the kitten may have intended for the animal to be found," she added, "but this is not the right way to give up an animal if you can no longer care for them.

"Thankfully, the kitten is unharmed and is now in the care of one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres where she is receiving the care she needs.

"If anyone recognises this kitten we would ask that they contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999."
