They were only five-weeks-old when they were found dumped in a rundown caravan by the River Great Ouse in July.

Cat's protection Downham Market Adoption Centre and a fosterer cared for them until they were old enough to be adopted and get them used to living in a domestic setting.

After returning to the centre, they were snapped up a week later by their new families.

The charity stressed the importance of its regular fundraising efforts.

Lindsay Tempest, Adoption Centre Manager, said: "Fundraising and events like our upcoming Barn Dance in Watlington are what allow us to look after cats like PK and the caravan kittens.

A charity barn dance will be held at Watlington village hall on Saturday, September 14 at 7pm. Tickets can be bought at the centre on 01366 382311 or in person.
