Two young kittens who were rescued by the RSPCA’s carers in Brent Knoll after being found heartlessly dumped in zipped-up bag that had been left in a shopping trolley have got a loving new home.

The kittens, named Scott and Ann by the RSPCA team, have been nursed back to health at the charity’s Brent Knoll animal centre.

The kittens were initially discovered on January 27th trapped in a zipped-up bag, in a supermarket trolley outside Sainsbury’s supermarket in Worle, Weston-super-Mare.

A member of the public spotted that a bag had been left in the trolley and thought someone may have left their shopping behind by accident but was horrified to find inside the zipped up cool bag were two very poorly kittens, with a third kitten that had already tragically died.

He kindly rushed them straight to a local veterinary practice where they were given emergency treatment.

The two surviving kittens were then transferred into RSPCA care at the Brent Knoll Animal Centre where they received veterinary treatment for their diarrhoea and flu symptoms, along with a lot of care.

Katy Freeman, deputy manager at RSPCA Brent Knoll, told “After six weeks we are delighted that, although still a little nervous, they have both fully recovered and have now found a new home together.”

“The photos of them were horrific and to see them now, they are just wonderful healthy kittens and we are immensely grateful and proud of everyone who played a part in their rescue and rehabilitation.”

The animal welfare charity hope Ann and Scott’s story will help to encourage anyone who is looking to welcome a new four-legged friend into their lives to think about adopting one of the many unwanted animals that are currently being cared for by the team at the centre.
