Two ‘beautiful’ kittens who were left to freeze to death in a Worle car park have found a ‘wonderful’ loving home, after beating the odds to recover from their ordeal.

These before-and-after photos show the kittens' miraculous recovery. These before-and-after photos show the kittens' miraculous recovery.

The pair were discovered by a member of the public inside a zipped-up cool bag, which had been dumped in a shopping trolley outside Sainsbury’s in Queensway. Unfortunately, they were found with a third kitten who was already dead by the time they were discovered.

However, the pair who survived are now on their way to a new forever home after they were treated for cat flu and were further rehabilitated by RSPCA North Somerset’s team in Brent Knoll.

The cats have been named Scott and Ann after the veterinary team which cared for them, and both have made a full recovery from their devastating start in life.

The RSPCA’s deputy branch manager Katy Freeman told the Mercury: “The photos of them (when they were dumped) were horrific – now they are just wonderful healthy kittens.

“We are immensely proud of everyone who played a part in their rescue and rehabilitation.

“They have grown so much in size and personality over the past few weeks, but they do still have a shy disposition and so we knew they would suit a quiet home with owners who will be patient and allow them to settle and help to build their confidence. To our delight, this home has already been found and they will hopefully be starting a life with their new family very soon.”
