Meet Neptune, Sinbad and Galene, three tiny kittens who survived a week trapped inside a car with no food or water on voyage from Cyprus to the UK.
The kittens were discovered inside a vehicle on board MV (Military Vessel) Eddystone midway through a 10 day, 2,000 mile journey from Limassol in Cyprus to Southampton.
After being looked after by the ship's staff, the kittens were given a clean bill of health and have now begun a three-month stay in quarantine, being paid for by Cats Protection after which the charity will find them new homes.
The cost of the kittens' quarantine and finding them a new home is likely to reach over and above £2,000, and Cats Protection would be grateful for any donations towards the cost.
You can donate here or text CATZ83 and an amount of £1, £2, £3, £4, £5, or £10 to 70070.
Please note all funds raised in excess of this appeal will be used to help other cats and kittens in our care.
