A cat lover has spoken of her shock after taking in three kittens that were found abandoned in a black bin bag in Thetford.
The cold, hungry, and dehydrated six-week-old cats were discovered by a dog walker on Tuesday night in the woods near the Abbey Estate.
Jackie Nunn, a volunteer fosterer for Breckland Cats Protection, who is now looking after the three abandoned animals, said she could not believe that someone could be so cruel to the kittens. She added that the latest rescue case marked a busy year for the nine Cats Protection fosterers in the Thetford area.
“It has been a horrendous year and it has been a real problem for us to take in all these abandoned and feral cats. We have had to put them in our bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchens because there is nowhere else to put them. Some people have lost their homes and others have had relationship break ups, but it definitely has been worse this year,” she said.
