Sonny was found dumped at Sunridge Park Railway Station


A passer-by found the black cat

A black cat was found next to a bin liner full of food and toys at a Bromley train station last week.

Long-haired Sonny was spotted by a passer-by who had just left a train at Sunridge Park Railway Station on Plaistow Lane.

Discovered at around 7pm on April 16, he was in a cat carrier outside the closed ticket office.

Next to him was a bin liner full of possessions that even included worming tablets.

RSPCA inspector Ellen Thomas said: “It is unusual for a cat to be dumped with quite so many treats and goodies.

“His carrier was brand new, and he had everything a loving owner might need to give him a happy life. He seemed to have been so cared for - it was almost as if someone had left him accidentally when they got on the train.

“We urge anyone with any information about what happened here to call us on 0300 1238018.”
