Two kittens were found at the Spring Youth Baseball Field in Troy on Sunday morning. The person that found them notified two police officers who were at the Stewart’s on Congress Street.

The kittens were found wandering around. They had a broken crate, no food, and frozen water. Luckily, they were found quickly, or they wouldn’t have survived the cold, snowy weather. The officers brought them to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.

“Kittens don’t do well in the cold, anything under 50 degrees typically gets them, so thankfully they were brought in as soon as they were,” said Kat Norris, Animal Care Lead at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. “We’re going to get them warm, run an exam on them, make sure they’re not dehydrated, give them their appropriate vaccines, and draw blood to make sure they’re healthy.”

The police officers that brought the cats to the humane society named them Walker and Spring. They’re now being cared for and will have a full, veterinary exam on Monday morning.

An investigation is underway to find the person responsible for abandoning the kittens, which are estimated to be between seven and 10 months old.
