The three kittens dumped at Stowbridge.
Safer Summer Staycation

Three five-week-old kittens that were dumped in a derelict caravan by the River Great Ouse need your help to get back on their paws.

Cats Protection’s Downham Market Adoption Centre, in Stowbridge, is caring for Jack Rose, Jagertee and Jazmin Sour until they are old enough to be adopted but need help covering the cost of their care.

Staff from the centre were alerted to the kittens on Monday by workers who were carrying out maintenance at the end of the charity’s property. Found covered in fleas, the trio need some much-needed TLC.

Lindsay Tempest, adoption centre manager said: “We believe the kittens were dumped as, apart from being covered in fleas, their long coats are in great condition and they are super friendly.”

One of the charity’s neutered resident mousers, Selby, who helps with rodent control, was found curled up with the kittens.

“Selby must have spotted the kittens in need and snuggled up to them for protection,” she added.

Anyone interested in giving them a new home can keep an eye out for them on the centre’s website:
