Appeal for new home for kittens abandoned in box on Hull street
THREE six-week-old kittens are looking for a new home after being abandoned in a box in the street.
The two males and a female were found dumped in 25th Avenue, north Hull, on Saturday night.
Luckily, they were found by a caring member of the public who took them in until they could be collected by the RSPCA.
The siblings are now being cared for at the Hull RSPCA centre in Clough Road until a new owner can be found.

Volunteers at the centre have named them Tom, Dick and Harriet and will be looking to rehome them as soon as their investigation has been completed.
General manager Alison Ripley said: "We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the abandonment.
"We are appealing for anyone with information about them to come forward.
"Once that investigation is completed, we will need new homes for them."
The cats are doing well in their temporary home but currently the shelter is full to capacity, with a cost of about £4.50 a day to home a cat.
The news about Tom, Dick and Harriet comes a day after the Mail reported two guinea pigs had been dumped in a plastic bag at the side of a deserted track near Hull's Beverley Road.
The guinea pigs are also now being cared for by the Clough Road branch of the RSPCA.
Ms Ripley said: "It's just horrendous that people can do this, not taking responsibility whatsoever for their pets.
"We urge people to get their cats neutered and we are offering neutering vouchers for people on low incomes so they don't end up with this problem of unwanted litters.
"The big problem for us and for many cat charities at the moment is that there are far too many unwanted cats for the amount of welfare spaces we have available."
The centre has now launched a "lonely hearts" campaign for Valentine's Day in the hope of finding new owners for the pets they currently have at the centre.
Hosted on Facebook, the centre has posted pictures of animals, with a list of their credentials, and is trying to match them up with owners.
The aim is to rehome as many animals as possible this month.
To adopt an unwanted animal, call the RSPCA on 01482 341331 or drop in between Tuesday and Saturday from 11am to 3.30pm.
Anyone who recognises the kittens or who saw anything suspicious on Saturday, February 9, should call the RSPCA on 0300 1234999.
