Two tiny kittens taken from a Suffolk animal shelter during a raid have been found.
The 12-week-old cats, called Pluto and Lilo, are thought to have been stolen during a raid on the RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich centre, based in Martlesham, between 4.30pm on Monday and 8.20am on Tuesday.
Volunteers say they are “relieved” to have the cats back.
Reacting to the news, staff said: “They are back!
“We have just had our kittens handed back to us at the centre after being found in an ottoman in someone’s house, hot and sweating.
