 I absolutely love cats. The funny thing is I don't have one of my own but am hoping to get a kitten soon. One time when I was younger I found a tiny kitten at a park. It had escaped from the home behind the park and I was able to get it back safe and sound, so in a small way, I can relate to this story.

Recently on a street in London, a suspicious bag with tiny air holes was left outside the home of a veterinary nurse. When she opened it, she found 15 kittens inside the suitcase stacked on top each other. Amazingly, all 15 kittens – a mixture of tabbies, grays and black and whites aged between three and five weeks and believed to be from 3 different litters. All the kittens survived the ordeal of being squeezed into the case with only a few air holes to breathe. cute_kittens_suitcase.jpgAfter the nurse found the 15 kittens, she then turned them over to the Cats Protection Hornchurch & District Branch. The kittens needed to be check for injuries immediately.

"Sadly, the case was found [standing] up, which meant the kittens would have all been laying on top of each other," said Alison Gambles, a spokeswoman for the shelter. It is beloved that, the kittens came from several litters born either three to five weeks ago. Because they were so young they had to bottle feed them. Once they are old enough they will be placed for adoption.

They have all been checkout and treated for infections. Other than that, all 15 kittens are happy and healthy. "They are all doing fine," Gambles said. "They are a full bundle of mischief."
