Kittens which narrowly escaped being crushed when they were thrown into waste at a Cambridgeshire recycling centre are starting new lives after undergoing round the clock care at the Wood Green animal charity in Godmanchester.

Cries from the five kittens, which had been put in a cardboard box, were heard just before the waste was flattened and they were pulled out.

The hungry, cold and terrified kittens were taken to Wood Green where vets and nurses worked through the night to save them. One of the kittens was so ill it did not survive.

But the others, Aladdin, Sophie, Dodger and Oliver recovered and have been found new homes.

The charity said it was seeing more and more animals being abandoned in “appalling” life-threatening conditions each year.

A spokesman for the charity said: “Without kind donations Wood Green simply wouldn’t be there day by day, week by week, with the critical care that animals need until they find a loving home.”
