My daughter and her boyfriend were walking in the park near to their student digs a week ago when they heard a faint squeaking. On looking down they spotted 4 abandoned kittens, no owner or mother in sight.
They didn't move the babies, but just waited to see if anyone came for them. A few hours later, with darkness approaching, they decided their only option to ensure the kitten's safety, was to take them back to the house.
The 4 kitties were very hungry, but not obviously feral; having been handled before, leading them to come to the conclusion that the kittens had been abandoned.
With Hannah coming home next week, I'm hoping she manages to find homes for the kittens, they looked about 5 weeks old to the vet and are well weaned; Kev is certainly not keen on having more feline members of the family, and I definitely can't see Captain (our own cat) being too welcoming!
