Animal welfare volunteers are searching for missing kittens after the ‘mother’ cat was found abandoned in a box in the street with a note.

A call was received yesterday by Canning Town’s Celia Hammond Animal Trust that the cat had been left in a cat-carrier on a wall near to the A11 Bow Roundabout flyover.

There was a note asking the finder to look after her - but no hint of any kittens.

“We brought the cat back to the clinic and unfortunately realised she was absolutely full of milk and was clearly feeding kittens,” Celia Hammond said.

“We are desperate to find where the kittens are - they won’t survive without her in the cold.”

Now staff are caring for the cute, two-tone brown, ginger and white adorable feline while they look for her kittens.

There was no mention in the note left with the box about any kittens, so the animal trust is appealing for the public’s help to find them.

“Perhaps the cat had the kittens outside and the person who abandoned her didn’t know,” Celia added.

She is urging anyone who hears kittens crying in the street to call the clinic on 020 7474 8811 and volunteers will collect them.

The charity is also hoping to find the cat’s owner while searching for the missing kittens.
