“They had dirt on their claws and face and their ears were dirty too.
“One of them appeared to have urine burns near his paws, suggesting that they were kept in filthy conditions – and this has made me concerned about the kittens’ mother and all of the other siblings, so I am very interested in finding more Get information. ”
