Two kittens have been found dumped next to recycling bins at a supermarket.
A member of the public spotted the pair in a cat carrier at Tesco in Hailsham in East Sussex. They were distressed and covered in faeces and taken to Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare.
They are thought to be 8-9 weeks old.
Staff at Raystede have named them Bubble and Squeak.
Head of Cattery, Jane Moore said: "They are such lovely kittens, I just cannot understand how anyone could leave them like this. They are both very friendly and have obviously been socialised well."
Anyone interested in re-homing the kittens or making a donation should call 01825 840252 or visit www.raystede.org
