Two cats dumped at side of road - ross and chandler

Two cats have been found dumped in a remote layby on a closed road near Nantwich, RSPCS officials said.

Animal rescuer inspector Jenny Bethel said it was lucky she found the hungry cats, who are such good friends they have been named Ross and Chandler.

The RSPCA has now launched an investigation after they were found on some dumped tyres in a layby off the A51 London Road near Bridgemere.

An anonymous caller reported to the charity they had seen two cats in a layby but could only describe the location as being “seven miles from the RSPCA’s Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre“.

When asked by the RSPCA’s call handlers if they could monitor the cats or transport them to safety, she refused.

Animal rescuer inspector Jenny Bethel was sent to try and locate the two cats on Tuesday (January 12).

After driving in the area she was struggling to find the location so decided to widen her search and went down a narrow road which was closed.

She found the two cats stood on some dumped tyres in a layby.

The friendly young male cats ran to greet Jenny but were clearly frightened and hungry.

Jenny said: “It was so lucky I managed to find the cats as they were quite a way from the location described and down a closed road.

“I just can’t understand why anyone would want to dump such lovely cats but especially in such a desolate location – where they could have perished.

“When I pulled up in my van they were sitting on some dumped tyres and looked so scared and as I got out of the van they came to greet me and were all round my feet.

“They are adorable.”

Jenny took the cats to Stapeley Grange cattery where they were found to be in good health.

Staff have named them Ross and Chandler after two characters from the popular TV show ‘Friends’.

They were very hungry and immediately enjoyed eating some food.

Once they have recovered from their ordeal they will be put up for adoption.

Jenny said: “I would like to find the owner of these lovely cats – who are not microchipped – and find out how they ended up in this lay-by.

“They were left in a dangerous situation and had they not been found so quickly the consequences could have been fatal.

“Anyone struggling with their pets should contact a charity for help.”

Anyone with information or who saw anything suspicious should call the RSPCA appeals line on 0800 123 8018.
