Cute kittens found living in washing machine rescued by animal shelter

Watch playful young cats in search of a new forever home

These adorable new-born kittens found abandoned in a washing machine were rescued by an animal shelter in Kensal Green.

The five-week old kittens, named Daz, Ariel, Persil, Surf and Fairy, were discovered by a member of staff in the garden of a florist, and called The Mayhew Animal Home.

The five felines found with their mum, a feral cat, living inside the drum of a washing machine were taken away to safety by animal welfare officers.

They were given a warm cabin, went through health checks carried out by vets and all were reported to be well and healthy.

The mum was also neutered and health checked then returned back to where she was found in Burnt Oak, Edgware as part of the Home's Trap, Neuter and Return programme.

They were put on foster where they could be properly socialised.
