Four kittens have been rescued by the RSPCA after they were found in a skip in Llanelli.
The kittens aged around two weeks were found at Bellevue Road yesterday morning (4 June) and had been hidden by rubbish in the skip.
RSPCA animal welfare officer Paula Milton, who was called to the location, said: “When they were first found, the ginger kitten only had his head showing – the others had been covered up by the rubbish in the skip.
“So it was really lucky they were spotted – it would have been easy to miss the fact that they were there. We’re very grateful to the person who found the kittens and contacted us.
“We don’t know the circumstances on how these kittens were left on their own – but we believe the mum could have been feral.
“The skip has also recently been moved, so it could be that the mum is out there somewhere looking for her kittens, which is so sad. The other scenario is that they could have been abandoned by an owner – so if anyone does have any information please get in touch.”
The kittens – three black and white and one ginger – have now been placed with a fosterer who will provide around-the-clock care for them until they are ready and old enough to be rehomed.
If anyone has any information about these kittens, please call the RSPCA inspectorate line on 0300 123 8018.
