A woman in Granada was coming home when she discovered a box had been left on her doorstep. When she opened it and discovered its contents, she had the shock of a lifetime.

Indeed, inside were four helpless kittens, who were visibly only a few days old.
A call for help
The woman immediately posted pictures of the litter on Facebook and made a desperate plea for help.
She wrote that she knew the kittens had been left there on purpose – why else would they have been in a box? She assured followers that she had waited for the mum to show up, but to no avail. The kittens were really and truly alone. Finally, the woman also mentioned that she was unable to care for the kittens herself as she already owned several pets. But she knew that without help, and in the hot Spanish weather, the kittens stood no chance.
Protecting our pets
It didn't take much time for someone to volunteer as a foster. At least this time, little innocent lives were spared.
However this is an important reminder of the importance of spaying and neutering pets! These kittens more than likely came from an unwanted litter, and were discarded because their mum's owner wasn't interested in caring for them. Spaying and neutering saves lives!
