Animal rescue officer Zoe Paul said: “The kittens are around five or six months old and were found in the early hours of the morning inside a red fabric cat carrier.

“One kitten is male and one is female- they are both black and white.

“Although we appreciate that the owner may have intended the kittens to be found, this is not the correct procedure if you wish to give up an animal for rehoming.
