CAMBRIDGE, MA (WBZ-AM) -- A two-year-old cat was left abandoned underneath a bus stop bench in Sullivan Square on Monday. The cat, named Marlee, is lucky to be alive as temperatures dropped below zero with the wind chill. 

An unidentified woman heard the cat crying inside a snow-soaked carrier around 5 p.m. Monday evening. The carrier had some toys, a blanket, and remnants of food inside. Concerned, the Good Samaritan took the cat to a local shelter where she is saying and contacted the Animal Rescue League on Wednesday. 

Animal Rescue League brought Marlee to their Boston Animal Care and Adoption Center where the cat will be up for adoption soon.

While Marlee was wearing a collar, she is not microchipped and does not match any reports for missing animals.

The Animal Rescue League of Boston's Law Enforcement Department is asking for help finding the person responsible.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact ARL Law Enforcement at (617) 426-9170 or email
