This feline family had a rough start in life, having been found in the most unlikely of places: a forgotten washing machine. No longer fit for purpose, the household appliance came to have another useful function. But the adventure for the kittens inside was far from over.
A female worker at a florist shop in Edgware, U.K., was pottering around outside in the garden behind the business. However, instead of finding more stock for the shopfloor, the employee came across something quite unexpected.
An old washing machine had been sitting there among the weeds for a very long time; indeed, so many plants had started to grow around it that nature had claimed it for its own. What’s more, a pregnant, untamed cat had clearly decided that this was the ideal place to have her litter and raise her young. It was perfectly private and quiet, so she made the most of this small oasis that nobody knew about but her. Or so she thought. In fact, her hiding place was about to be uncovered.
