The four kittens we’re found by a passer-by who noticed them in a bush in Chesterton.
Four terrified kittens found covered in fleas and their own urine tied up in a black bin bag are looking forward to going off to loving news homes after being nursed back to health by pet charity Blue Cross.
The kittens were just weeks old when they were found by a passer-by dumped in a cat carrier which was tied up in the bin bag in a bush in Chesterton last month.
The four brothers – which have been named Robb, Jon, Rickon and Bran – were underweight, covered in fleas and their own urine and generally in a very poor state when they were brought in to Blue Cross Cambridge on Garlic Row.
Staff feared the kittens might not pull through. But after much love and care from the staff, along with a much needed bath, the kittens, now 13 weeks old, are back to full health and are now preparing to go off to the loving new homes they deserve.
Sarah Bates, Blue Cross Cambridge Animal Welfare Supervisor, said: “Robb, Jon, Rickon and Bran were covered in fleas and soaked in their own urine when they were brought into us. No doubt due to their terrifying experience of being trapped in the carrier in the darkness.
“We’ve no idea how long they had been tied up in the bag before they were found but they were very underweight and they may not have survived much longer had they not been discovered.
“We’re so happy to see them all back to full health. They are all reserved so should be heading to their new homes shortly where we’re sure they’ll make their new families some great little companions.”
