Five kittens are recovering after being buried under rubbish and left to die. They were found by a member of the public in a small cardboard box. It was buried under rubbish beside bins in Basingstoke.
The kittens were crying to be fed, underweight and cold. Happy Cat Rescue at Bordon took the animals in. They have been hand-reared for the past six weeks - bottle fed every two hours. One of the kittens died, but the others are now said to be 'flourishing'.
