A woman was traveling late at night when she noticed a little animal running across the road, which she soon identified as a cat.
She drove over and stepped out, concerned, to check on the small kitten, and it was then that she discovered the mother cat sitting nearby, close to an open box. She stepped over gently and glanced inside, where she discovered three additional kittens huddled together, chilly and afraid.
The woman realized the tiny family wouldn’t be able to live much longer outside in the cold, so she carefully got them all into her car and drove them home, then phoned the RSPCA for assistance.
“I’m confident the unfortunate kittens would have perished if they hadn’t been spotted by this kind lady on Saturday night [in Birmingham, England],” Herchy Boal, an inspector with the RSPCA, stated in a news release. “They’re just a few weeks old and quite delicate,” says the narrator.
The RSPCA’s Newbrook Farm shelter took in the tiny family, and following a medical examination, it was found that all five cats were healthy. They’re fortunate that the cold didn’t make them siсker — and that the wonderful woman discovered them and took them in at just the right time.
“We’re in the midst of a period of incredibly cold and perilous weather, so abandoning a mother cat and her kittens likе this is terrible,” Boal added. “Thank goodness, this lady was able to take them home and keep them warm until we arrived, and we’d likе to express our gratitude to her.”
The mother cat was given the name Disco, and the kittens were given the names KP, NikNak, Pringle, and Skip by the shelter staff. The kittens are about 6 weeks old, and the whole family will be available for adơрtion shortly.
Everyone is ecstatic to assist in finding the cats their forever homes, and they are overjoyed that they all get a second chance after being brutally âbаndơnеd.
“Unfortunately, the RSPCA sees this all too often,” Boal added, “mums with their litters or kittens âbаndơnеd on their own by owners who ended up with unwanted kittens.”
“Now, I’d want to hear from anyone who knows where these cats came from or who is responsible for abandoning them in such a horrible manner.”
