Kittens Found Abandoned On Roadside In Taped-Up Box

Three kittens have been rescued from a taped-up box left on the side of the road in the NSW Hunter Region.

A member of the public came across the carton of cats in Gresford at the weekend.

Thankfully, the kittens were still alive.

RSPCA inspectors were called in and the animals were taken to the Hunter Veterinary Hospital for a check-up and are said to be doing very well.
