Bird dies after being abandoned in cold weather alongside two cats and another bird in Glasgow SSPCA

A bird has died after being abandoned alongside two cats and another bird in Glasgow.

A Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals spokesperson confirmed that a member of the public found the animals on Berkeley Street on January 9.

The two cats, one tabby and one white, were found in a separate cage to the lovebird and red and orange canary.

The member of the public took the animals back to their flat where one of the birds died shortly after.

Scottish SPCA inspector, Elizabeth Lindsay, warned the public that leaving animals outside in the cold weather for a number of hours will cause them “significant distress”.

Ms Lindsay confirmed that the animals were now in the care of an SSPCA animal rescue centre and receiving the necessary treatment.

“We appreciate that whoever left these animals may have intended for them to be found but this is not the correct way to give up a pet if you can no longer care for them.

“If anyone recognises these animals or has any information surrounding their circumstances, they should call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999,” they said.
