The kittens after being found covered in grease

THREE orphaned kittens found covered in grease at a Rotherham industrial site notorious for feral cats are recovering well and in need of a permanent home.

Last month, the three male kittens were found without their mother and covered in a thick coat of oil and grime, hiding their natural colourings.

An RSPCA representative said: “These three boys have not had a good start, covered in oily grime on an industrial site and no mother around.”

The animal rescue charity said the site had a number of feral cats and after the “scruffy” kittens were monitored, it was believed they were motherless. 

“They couldn’t be left a long time, due to risk of exposure/starvation but also they could become really ill very quickly,” added the spokesperson.

“We’re talking to the site about helping manage the population.”

The cute trio have now been given a good wash and are being cared for by a “foster mum”. They love exploring and are very friendly!
