Enquiries are ongoing after the RSPCA took two abandoned cats into its care.

The cats were dumped in the corner of the Pets at Home store in Dewsbury.

Frightened but unharmed, the pair were found huddled together in a taped-up carrier. 

CCTV footage captured on the day shows two women entering the shop with the carrier and leaving empty-handed minutes later.

Staff phoned the animal charity and the cats were later collected by the RSPCA’s animal rescue officer Ollie Wilkes.

The cats were then taken to the charity’s Greater Manchester Animal Hospital for a check-up and routine flea and worming treatments.

The cats will be rehomed in the future, the animal charity said.

Enquiries are ongoing, a spokesperson for the RSPCA confirmed, and the cats are coping well.
