Grantham man and his family rescues two more kittens in same spot where four others had been ‘left to die’

Two more kittens have been found in the same spot where four others were “left to die”.

Paul Clark rescued four kittens on Saturday after finding them in a taped up box while walking his dog in Gorse Lane, Grantham.

He explained that the box had been “dumped out of sight from the road” and that the kittens had “clearly been left to die”.

The four kittens originally found by Paul Clark.

Paul took the four kittens to Avenue Vets, where he says they are doing “really well”, and they will soon go to the Lincolnshire Cat Rescue Centre.

However, yesterday morning (Wednesday), Paul was walking his dog again and discovered another kitten in the same place that he found the four others.

Paul said: “I was unable to catch it and despite going back twice later there was no sign of it.”

Later in the day, Paul’s daughter, Hannah Clark, went to search for the kitten.

Paul continued: “[Hannah] not only managed to catch it but also with the help of my mum, Susan Clark, she caught another kitten as well!

“These two kittens strangely appear to be older. About six weeks. They have been taken to be cared for.”

Paul explained that the latest two kittens to be found are a few weeks older than the original four.

“One is a boy and is black and white, and the other a tortoiseshell female,” said Paul. “So probably from another mother and dumped at the same time or abandoned previously, though I would think the former is more likely.

“I am continuing to check the location regularly,no more kittens so far today (Thursday)!”
