"The poor kitten was seen hitting the road and rolled over a few times before stopping. The witness in the car behind had to swerve to avoid hitting her and initially thought she was a piece of rubbish that had been thrown out of the car. It was only when the kitten moved her head up did they realise it was an animal and stopped their car to help."

Caren went on: "We are so grateful to the driver that stopped to help poor Daisy. This poor kitten was just thrown to the kerb like a piece of rubbish. I have dealt with incidents of animals being dumped and abandoned before but this is extreme. It is very lucky that this little kitten survived.

"The vet is hopeful that Daisy will pull through but the next 36 hours are crucial. She has a pull injury to her tail which means her tail will need to be amputated and she has a lower jaw fracture and head trauma. There may be more damage but until she is fully stable we won't know the full extent of her injuries.

"We are hopeful there are other people who know what happened or have footage of it which could help us track down the person that did this to poor Daisy."

Caren added: "I would urge anyone who may know where this kitten has come from to call our inspector appeal line as soon as possible on 0300 123 8018."

If anyone has any information about how Daisy came to be abandoned, please contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
