Mrs Eggleton said: “We would never have seen them in a million years, because they weren’t crying. Whether someone abandoned them, and what happened to the mother, I don’t know.”

The couple have been looking after them and will rehome them.

Anyone interested in the kittens should call the couple on 01359 242504.
