The RSPCA is appealing for information after five kittens were found in a sodden cardboard box between Rhos and Penycae near Wrexham.
The animals were discovered by a member of the public on a footpath on Tuesday, January 29, who gave them shelter by taking them home.
Th eight week old kittens were sealed in the box which was disintegrating as a result of heavy rain.
RSPCA inspector Kia Thomas said: “It beggars belief that someone could be so heartless as to dump small kittens like this. It’s vital that we hear from someone who may know something about this incident."
