HOW could anyone turn their backs on these little cuties?

It’s hard to believe but someone did exactly that.

This beautiful litter of kittens was born in a busy vets after their mother was abandoned on the premises.

And you can meet them at Abbeymoor Vet Centre in Halifax Road, Hillsborough where they were born.

They came into the world last month after someone dumped their heavily pregnant mother and two five month old kittens in the Centre’s foyer.

Straight away staff at the centre reported the find to the RSPCA and also the Cats Protection League.

Unfortunately, both the charities reported they were completely full and, as a result, neither could take the three cats in.

And then the three became eight.

The Cats Protection League kindly paid for the kittens to be neutered and the centre then managed to find homes for the pair with friends of staff.

Now staff at the centre are ensuring the kittens’ mum is given a safe environment in order that she can look after her little ones for a few more weeks until they are old enough to be adopted.

They’re asking for prospective caring owners who may be able to offer any of the kittens or their mum a new home to please contact them as soon as possible.

The centre’s head receptionist Mandy Garner said:

“We have been looking after the pregnant cat and are pleased to say she gave birth to five beautiful kittens.

“In a few weeks we will need homes for them and also, after she has been neutered, the mother cat.”
