Another box of kittens have been taken to the RSPCA in Hlifax after being found dumped in a skip.

Staff at the animal rescue charity are not sure if the four cats, who are only a few weeks old, will survive.

They were brought in at 10.15am today after being found by workers at a building merchants in Elland.

“They’re very, very poorly,” said Julie Cockroft, Halifax RSPCA animal centre manager.

“We don’t know if they’re going to make it.”

Meanwhile the cute kittens pictured were rescued from a landfill site after being dumped in a skip last week.
Unknown to recycling workers, Flower and her brothers Fergus, Fred and Frodo were in a box in the skip picked up in Leeds and taken to for landfill at Ploughcroft in Halifax. 
Luckily, the kittens - who were just two weeks old - were spotted and taken to the RSPCA where cat Fifi managed to feed and care for them for a few days. Now her milk has dried up, they are being hand-fed at a foster home but will need permanent homes when they reach eight weeks old.

Jule said they have been inundated with cats and kittens this year, currently caring for over 100.

She stressed the centre can offer help with neutering animals.

She added anyone who wanted to help the centre should get in touch.
