Three kittens found dumped in a holdall in the Ashdown Forest are lucky to be alive say staff from the Cats Protection's National Cat Adoption Centre. The trio, now named Piglet, Forest and Fidget, are not wild so would have struggled to survive being dumped.
“These are domesticated kittens who would never have been able to fend for themselves, particularly during this cold snap.
“The bag they had been dumped in was filthy with faeces so we're pretty sure they had been contained in it but had managed to wriggle free. Had they not, they may never have been discovered.
“It is very sad to think of these very friendly kittens being dumped in the middle of nowhere and just left for dead, they are very fortunate to have been spotted by walkers."
– Danielle Draper, Manager of the National Cat Adoption Centre
