19 kittens found in plastic bag in Oneonta hospital bathroom
COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. —
A Cooperstown animals shelter is working to relocate 19 kittens Wednesday after they were found in a plastic bag in the bathroom of AO Fox Hospital in Oneonta.
According to the Susquehanna Animal Shelter, three or four different litters were found in the bathroom of the hospital, and the ages of the kittens range from two days old to four weeks.
The animal shelter said in a Facebook post that they are working with their current fosters to set up placements for the kittens since all of them will need to be bottle fed.
Shelter officials say it is very dangerous for kittens to be away from their mother at such a young age. Officials say because they were dropped off anonymously, they don't know where the mothers are or how long the kittens went without food.
"If you have kittens you cannot care for, PLEASE reach out to us for help! This is also why spaying and neutering is SO incredibly important and truly SAVES lives," shelter officials said in a Facebook post.
