What looked like an abandoned and 'screaming' suitcase turned out to be a bundle of joy as 15 kittens were crammed inside.
This is an AmoMama article about hope and new beginnings after a suitcase full of kittens were found by a veterinary nurse on her way to work.
Crammed into a suitcase left in the street, 15 kittens were saved by the nurse who was exactly in the right place at the right time.
Who knows what would have become of the poor critters had they not been found?

The nurse, who works at a Cat Protection branch in Hornchurch had been on her way to work when she had noticed something rather peculiar.
It was a medium-sized suitcase. But the suitcase itself was not the peculiar thing. It was what the suitcase was doing that puzzled her.
The suitcase had appeared to be making whining sounds.

"But with kittens this young and vulnerable, the outcome could have been awful."
Stunned and confused by the moaning suitcase, she strolled closer to have a better look, and a better listen.
She had indeed not been mistaken. The suitcase was alive with strange little noises, and it sounded to her like kittens.
When she unzipped the suitcase she was met with a terrible mixture of surprise and horror, sprinkled with a dash of relief.
She was relieved that she had found the kittens and could rescue them, but horrified that anyone could discard poor little kittens in a suitcase.
Who could have done such a thing, and why? She had an idea that there was a very precise reason why the kittens had been left in that exact spot.
She was well-known in the area and many in the neighborhood knew that she worked at Cats Protection. Who better than her to leave the kittens to?
She noticed holes in the top of the suitcase, allowing in fresh air so that the kittens did not suffocate.
Whoever had left them there, had left them there to be rescued.

The kittens were treated and examined and all appeared to be healthy and in good condition. Six of the kittens did have eye infection, but it was nothing out of the ordinary.
The kittens were between the ages of three to five weeks, and were though to be from three separate litters.
Staff at the Cats Protection branch named every last one of the kittens and are now bottle feeding them, giving them the love and attention that every cat deserves.
The kittens are still looking for homes, however, but their cuteness is a definite 'deal-closer,' and there's no doubt that they'd soon be in their own forever homes.
Do you love animals as much as we do? Then what do you think about people who abandon and discard defenselessness animals? We'd love to hear your thoughts.
