ABANDONED kittens less than a week old have been found in a skip at Minster Lovell, near Witney.

The kitties are now being hand-reared round the clock at Blue Cross animal rehoming centre in Burford. They were found dumped in a skip in Brize Norton Road last month by workers.

Animal welfare supervisor Hannah Wiltshire said: “The kittens were freezing cold and covered in dust.

“They are far too young to be separated from their mum so we have been hand-rearing them around the clock. Sadly one kitten was too weak to survive but Luigi, Mario, Yoshi and Koopa are doing well. They will be found homes at nine weeks.

I'd like to dump the lowlife who did this in a skip for a couple of days and see how they liked it...

Have they not heard of the Blue Cross or RSPCA? And why wasn't their cat neutered?
