Three kittens found abandoned in a cardboard box this week in Hartford are being cared for by volunteers. The felines were discovered Tuesday by a trash collector. They are about three weeks old and, despite some health issues, they’re doing better.
Judy Levy is the president of West Hartford-based Animal Friends of Connecticut. She says she retrieved the kittens and took them to a veterinary technician friend of hers.
Levy says animal abandonment is a major concern in Hartford. She says last month one kitten suffered serious injuries when a child attempted to flush it down a toilet. Levy says it will be at least five weeks before the kittens are ready for adoption. For informtion or to donate to Animal Friends of Connecticut, call (860) 232-1393.
