Abandoned Kittens and Cat Saved

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- An observant New Yorker reported an abandoned suitcase on a city street to police and as a result officers saved a cat and her kittens.

The closed piece of luggage contained a gray Russian Blue mix and her three kittens about 6 weeks old, reported the New York Daily News Saturday.

"They were a little lethargic," said Melissa Manders, coordinator for New Hope, a program that houses animals with health issues or other special needs. "But they weren't hurt."

Animal Care & Control officials in Brooklyn said the felines would be held for 72 hours and if no one steps forward the cats would be put up for adoption -- after the mother cat nurses her babies for another two weeks.
