A kitten is being cared for by an animal charity after it was dumped in a bin outside a restaurant.
A passer-by heard the young cat crying in the bin in North Street, St Andrews, on July 12 and it was handed in to Provost Veterinary Group in Largo Road.
The kitten, named Rascal by Scottish SPCA staff, had been put in the bin with another young cat but it ran off when they were discovered.
The animal charity is now appealing for any information on how the cats ended up in the bin.
Animal rescue officer Susan Witton said: ''The wee guy was discovered with another kitten who managed to run off before the member of public was able to catch him.
''He's been named Rascal by staff at our centre in Lanarkshire where he is being cared for.
''If anyone noticed any suspicious activity or has any information we urge you to get in touch.
''Anyone with information is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA animal helpline on 03000 999 999.''
