WALES – This cute kitten has been named ‘Station the cat’ after being found in a bag on a train at Cardiff Central.
Station, who is a gray and white male cat, was discovered in a navy sports bag on the 6.31pm arrival from Rhymney to Penarth.
After finding Station, Arriva Trains Wales turned to social media search to try and find his owners.
Arriva Trains officials claim they are unaware of who found Station.
The duty manager reported the matter to the social media team after the cat was discovered in an attempt to ask followers to help.
Arriva Trains announced that the RSCPA took Station to a vet to receive care in Newport.
Station, who is believed to be approximately six weeks old, required urgent care after contracting cat-flu.
He was also “malnourished and poorly”.
RSPCA animal collection officer, whose name is Gary Lucas, stated: “This poor kitten was found on the train in a bag last night at around 7.15pm and was then taken off the train at Cardiff Central Station. He must have been so scared on his own.
“I took Station immediately to an independent vet, where he is currently receiving treatment. When I took him in he had runny eyes and was lethargic, but he is doing well really today and is alert and is eating well.
“It sadly does appear that he may have been abandoned on the train, but we are appealing for information to try and find out what happened as someone could have forgotten him.
“Someone may have seen who was carrying the bag or may recognise the kitten.”
It is hoped that Station will be able to fully recover and be collected next week to be taken to his new home.
A spokesman for Arriva Trains Wales stated: “We’ve had a great response from the public. Fingers crossed for a Purrfect ending to this story!”
