TWO young cats abandoned in a taped-up cardboard box have been taken to an RSPCA shelter.

The moggies – who have been renamed Rambo and Arnold by the charity’s staff – were discovered on the doorstep of a private house in Ripon Road, Bournemouth, on Sunday afternoon.

Both cats are black and white males, and were found in an Amazon box which also contained a cushion and some dry biscuits.

A brick had been placed on top of the box. RSPCA animal welfare officer Sue Brooks said: “Enquiries in the area haven’t resulted in finding anyone who saw anything suspicious or who knows where the cats came from so we desperately need to hear from anyone with information.”
