Kittens in suitcase
11 April 2017
A group of 15 tinykittens are recovering after they were found stuffed into a suitcase that had been dumped at the side of the road.
The baby cats – thought to be aged between three and five weeks old – were discovered by a veterinary nurse as she made her way to work on Saturday morning in Dagenham, Essex.
Whoever dumped the youngsters had poked small air holes in the suitcase so that they could breathe.
Welfare & Homing Officer Alison Gambles said: “Although they were all alive and in fairly good condition, they were clearly far too young to be away from their mothers.
“Six of them had obvious cases of eye infection and although the others seem okay for now, we will need to closely monitor them.
