RSPCA staff say they’ve been left ‘shocked and horrified’ when they discovered two recycling boxes filled with cats and kittens dumped on their doorstep.

Workersin Aylesbury made the discovery after finding the two boxes, with the lids screwed down, at their gate.

“When we opened the boxes we found two adults and five kittens in one box and one adult and six kittens in the other.

“They were very hot and there was faeces and wet blankets at the bottom of the boxes.

“They were also all full of worms and in desperate need of help.”
