TWO kittens dumped in a tied-up plastic bag have found a new home. 

The black-and-white duo were just weeks old when they were discovered on June 26 near the Harbour Masters Office in Porthmadog in a plastic bag in a bin.

They were both in good health and were taken into RSPCA care at its Byn-y- Maen Animal Centre in Colwyn Bay.

RSPCA inspector Mark Roberts said: “It is just so sad that they were just callously dumped. They must have been so frightened.

“But in our care the kittens did really well and it’s lovely to hear they have a new home.”

Their new owner Debbie Parry from Llandudno has named the kittens, Lexy and Mercedes and also gave a new home to a third kitten housed at Byn-y- Maen.

Debbie said: “They are adorable. I had been going back to the centre a couple of times to see them and then I picked them up.

“The three of them completely settled in so quickly and felt at home. Considering their background I could not get over it.

“They were playing and investigating. They are so cute and loving.”

Kennel and cattery supervisor Chris Butler said: “We are delighted that they have gone to their forever home and have been rehomed with another kitten we had in our care.

“We also have many more cats in our cattery who all deserve loving homes, so please pop in for a visit and say hello to the animals currently in our care.”

RSPCA Cymru has recently revealed that 7,589 animals were collected and rescued in 2015 in Wales, and out of these, 540 of the animals rescued were due to abandonment.
