Six of 10 kittens abandoned in a cardboard box will soon be available for adoption from Langley Animal Protection Society.

Kittens abandoned at a Langley City dumpster are now being live streamed

It is unlikely they would have survived much longer, says LAPS manager Sean Baker. LAPS now has the furballs on kitty cam.

Ten kittens from two different litters were found in a box that was taped shut and left beside a dumpster on a hot day in Langley City last Thursday, July 3.

According to animal shelter manager Sean Baker, a good Samaritan heard meowing from the box and opened it. Three kittens escaped and haven’t been seen since.

The rest were brought to Langley Animal Protection Society.

Sadly, one kitten didn’t survive and the remaining six wouldn’t have either, if it hadn’t been for the good Samaritan.

Now you can watch these kittens live. LAPS will be live streaming their adorable ways 24/7. To watch the kittens go here or click on the video box below.

Baker said the kittens were very thin and hungry and wouldn’t have survived another hour in that box. They were brought to Mountain View Veterinary Hospital to be looked at.

A LAPS staff member took them home the first night to provide round the clock care. Now they are eating, playing and doing very well at the shelter, he said.

Three appear to be older and are all male. They will be available for adoption after they are fixed. The younger ones will be ready for adoption in five weeks and will spend some time in foster care.

“They appear to be social and friendly. They are not feral kittens,” Baker said.

He has been back to the area to attempt to locate the three missing kittens, but without any success.

The likelihood of finding the person who would abandon these kittens is very low, he said. They were dumped in an area that isn’t very visible to the public.

“If someone happens to find themselves with a litter of kittens that they cannot care for, the right thing to do is to contact your local animal shelter first (in Langley – LAPS),” said Baker.

“It is not reasonable to leave them somewhere with the hope that they will be found. In our experience, vet clinics can also be a good place to call and there are a number of cat rescue organizations that can be found online, such as CARES and VOKRA.”
