Staff from the Hornchurch branch of Cats Protection found the kitten, which they’ve named Guinness, with her mum and two of her siblings huddled in a box on a doorstep after being alerted by a member of the public.

A vet treated the vulnerable felines for fleas, which can be fatal for kittens, and estimated that the mother is a year old while the kittens are less than five-weeks-old.

In order to help find Guinness and her family find a new home the feline welfare charity has set up a justgiving page to cover the costs of her treatment.
