Kittens dumped [14/12/2007]
Two newborn kittens were lucky to be alive after being dumped.

They were found along with two others, who later died, wrapped in a shirt in a carrier bag and left under some bushes outside a closed vets' surgery in Huddersfield, Yorkshire.

Someone passing heard faint miaowing and took them home to feed them.

When the surgery re-opened the following day he brought them back.

Staff at the animal clinic fed the kittens every hour and gave them lots of love and attention.

Thanks to the dedication of kind-hearted nurses at Anrich Vets, the ginger duo, Gerrard and Bagpuss, whose eyes had not even fully opened when found, have now recovered from their ordeal.

Nurses Nikki Beumont and Nina Testa grew so attached to the cats that they have adopted them permanently.

Nina told the The Huddersfield Daily Examiner newspaper: "We had to go and buy special equipment and we were walking around like zombies for the first few weeks.

“But we didn’t mind, you can’t just leave them when they are crying or hungry."

Although vets do rehome cats it is normally more common for people to take their unwanted animals to the RSPCA or Cats Protection League.
