Lonely kittens - level 3

Lonely kittens - level 3

28-08-2014 07:00

Fifteen kittens are looking for a new home after they were found dumped in a suitcase in Southampton.

The kittens, all aged about just six weeks old, were spotted by a member of the public at about 8.30am on Friday, after someone pulled up in a car and dumped the open suitcase before driving off. The RSPCA is now appealing for information to find out who is responsible for abandoning them outside an animal charity hospital. It's not clear if the kittens are all from the same litter, and the RSPCA believes it's more likely that the cats are made up of two that have been dumped together, as there are so many of them.

Unfortunately there’s no CCTV footage of the area which means there's no description of the person who dumped the adorable cats.

Ten of the kittens are now being cared for by the RSPCA while five others are currently at a private boarding establishment.

The poor little kittens are also teeming with fleas and worms, but hopefully they will go to good homes.

Difficult words: spot (see), pull up (stop), RSPCA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), appeal (request), abandon (leave), litter (animals born to an animal at one time), CCTV footage (security camera video), adorable (cute), boarding establishment (business that provides accommodation for other people’s dogs or cats), teem (be full of).
