A HEART-BREAKING appeal has come from an animal rescue centre after a group of kittens were abandoned in the most horrific way.

The four kitties came to North Clwyd Animal Rescue, based in Holywell, to continue their recovery and hopefully find their forever homes after suffering a terrifying incident in Denbighshire.

A rescue centre spokesman said: “These little cuties were chucked out of a moving car like a bit of rubbish! It’s so sad to hear a story like this let alone seeing what happened to them and treating them afterwards.

“They are such beautiful kittens, and we can’t understand why anyone would do this to one animal let alone four innocent kittens. Thankfully they all survived the fall and a lovely, caring passer-by saw the incident and rescued them and brought them to NCAR.

They were described by the centre volunteers as “battered, scrapped and bruised” upon arrival.

The quartet have since been named Ruff, Tumble, Roly and Poly.

The spokesman adds: “Sadly, Tumble has broken ligaments and nerve damage in his front leg and will have to have his leg amputated. Honestly, words can’t express how sad this is and why people feel the need to dump animals when there are rescues like us.”

If you’re reading this, and want to do something to help, the centre explains how you can make a difference to these cats.

The spokesman says: “It’s been a tough year got everyone and especially at NCAR and when we see cases like this it just makes our work even harder.

“If you can spare a £1 or even more, it will help support the care and treatment for these kittens to their road to recovery and hopefully soon they will be ready to find new forever homes.”
