DEDHAM (CBS) – Investigators want to know who is responsible for abandoning two cats on a busy Dedham street over the weekend in a “cruel act.”

The Animal Rescue League says a Good Samaritan reported seeing a man leave a cardboard box on High Street containing two six-month-old cats.

The cats were dirty and not microchipped. The female cat had a broken leg and a rabbit nail in its tail, the ARL says, but both are in overall good health.

The Good Samaritan believed the perpetrator is a white man in his 30s or 40s, driving a dark-colored SUV that might be a Toyota RAV4 or Honda CRV.

The ARL hopes both cats can go to new homes in time for the holidays.

Anyone with information should contact ARL Law Enforcement at or call 617 426-9170.
