She said she was ‘appalled’ that the kittens were left and that they could easily have ‘died in this box in this heat’.  

The animals are believed to be ‘so thin their spines were prominent’ and they are ‘full of flu and all had sticky gunky eyes’. 

The kittens were taken to RSPCA Harmsworth Memorial Animal Hospital where they will be treated.  

A member of the public spotted the animals who had been left in a black and white cat carried that had been abandoned at the roadside. 

The person who found the kittens believed they could have been thrown out of a car due to the way the cat carrier had been found

Animal Welfare Officer Siobhan Trinnaman said they could have ‘died in this box in this heat’ and from the way the cat carrier was found it looked like it could have been thrown out a car 

The finder told the RSPCA that they believed that it could have been thrown out of a car from the way it was found.   

The kittens are believed to be around 12 weeks old, with one boy and three girls.

The RSPCA is appealing for anyone with any information and urges anyone who may know who owns the kittens to contact the charity’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
