13 kittens left to die after being found taped inside a box

On the 22nd April on the island of Kos 13 kittens were found inside a cardboard box which had been taped shut. The kittens are all around 3 - 4 weeks old. 5 were already dead and 3 were so near to death that they sadly had to be put to sleep. The remaining 5 are being cared for by a volunteer for the 'Friend of the Society of Kos'.

It appears that the kittens are from 3 different litters. Most of the kittens have very swollen and red eyes (a common sympton of cat flu) which they are currently receiving treatment for.
