Dogs discover abandoned kittens
The lives of three lucky kittens were saved thanks to the nosy nature of two dogs.
The kittens, which are about nine weeks old, were discovered at the bottom of a garden on Newtown in Thetford, Norfolk, when the homeowner’s dogs sniffed them out.
One female tortoiseshell and two black males were discovered in a small cardboard box having been abandoned by their former owners.
Rehoming officer at Breckland Cats Protection, Jackie Nunn, said the kittens were now being fostered in Methwold.
She added: “If the dogs hadn’t found them they wouldn’t have survived the night.

“We think they were only out there a little while though and they’re doing well now. It’s so frustrating that things like this still happen though.
“We keep going on about how we can help people if they are struggling and for people to neuter their cats but some just can’t be bothered.”

She went on: “We would like to find a home that’s really safe and away from busy roads and where someone is home for part of the day or could pop home at lunchtime.”
She added that a home with children would be suitable as long as they were well-behaved.
