TwO helpless kittens are looking for a new home after being found dumped in a cardboard box inside a shed.

The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after the duo were found inside the shed at Maryculter Organic Farm, just off the B979, on Thursday morning, June 21. The animal charity was alerted by the owner of the farm.

Now named Banana and Custard, the eight-week-old female kittens are recovering from their frightening ordeal at the charity’s Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre at Drumoak.

Animal Rescue Officer Lynne Craib said: “Poor Banana and Custard had been left without any food or water and were understandably distressed. We don’t think they had been there for too long before they were found and they’re in good overall condition, which suggests someone has been looking after them until very recently. The person who abandoned them would have had to jump over a locked gate to gain access to the shed but unfortunately the owner didn’t see anyone.”

Anyone with information should call the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
