Yesterday, Rescue Services responded to a call concerning kittens who were found zipped in a plastic retail bedding bag on a doorstep in Dorchester.

With the bag only being ten inches by twelve inches and three inches in width, five kittens were packed inside. The 3-week-old kittens seemed in good condition despite their stressful situation. They were taken to the League’s Boston shelter and examined by Dr. Martha Smith. After being checked out, Dr. Smith said, “They’re pretty sassy, so they should do well.”

The kittens were immediately put into foster homes and will remain there until they are 8 weeks old and able to be adopted.
