Peanut, Almond & Nutmeg: Rescued From Being Tied Up In A Sealed Box And Dumped

Meet Peanut, Almond and Nutmeg (as shown from left to right), three kittens who were saved and given their lives back.

The utterly adorable trio were tied up, placed in a sealed box and left to die earlier this month in Burton Latimer UK, where the weather is turning cold on October’s autumn nights. By chance, a local resident out walking their dog found the kittens on October 14 when the dog heard meows and went to investigate.

The kittens were taken into care by the Wellingborough and Rushton branch of Cats Protection and were then entrusted into foster care with Ann Glaus, who named them and is providing them with a loving home life until they are ready for adoption. Almond already has a home to go to; as of this writing, Peanut and Nutmeg still need to find their forever homes. The kittens are about 8 weeks old.

The Wellingborough and Rushton Cats Protection reports an increase in such dumpings this year, as have rescues and shelters throughout both the UK and the US, and beyond.  Whenever we learn of stories like this one we see appeals from the local animal welfare groups reminding people to please take unwanted companion animals to a rescue or safe shelter rather than dumping them. Since the thoughtless among us are dumping in increased numbers, that leaves the rest of us, who are in the majority, to step in and help, as did the person who found the kittens, along with Cats Protection, and Ms. Glaus.

  1. SO THANKFUL FOR THE FINDING OF THESE THREE ADOREABLE BABIES — I CRY WHEN I THINK OF HOW MANY ARE NOT AS FORTUNATE. WISH I COULD ADOPT ONE BUT THAT’S A LONG LONG FLIGHT! (PLUS OUR LITTLE LIBBY WON’T ACCEPT ANOTHER CAT INTO THE HOUSE SHE ENJOYS BEING AN ONLY CHILD).

  2. Poor little kitty! Don’t how someone could be so mean and uncaring to do such a thing. Glad to hear that they are in good and caring hands now.

  3. I’m glad that they got rescued. I hope the other two find homes soon. Great people who took the time to follow the dog and the foster care givers are the best.

  4. who ever dumped or discarded these kittens are no better than any criminal or animal abusers for they are! And the ones who rescued these kittens and the ones who foster them are true heroes ! dumping any animal should be a crime and those who treat animals as if they were trash must be put behind bars and be treated as trash!
