The person who discovered the kittens was Iván Rodríguez after hearing mewing coming from inside the hopper. He had been on his way to work on one of the new urbanizaciones (Aguacate Beach).

The rubbish-collection lorry was not far off, so it was very fortunate that he heard the mewing and stopped to investigate.

He decided to take them home until he can find a home for them. The creatures were born so recently that one still had an umbilical cord.

    I do agree with Fred. Not just the villages. I think that all dogs and cats should be chipped and neutered if roaming. Maybe some humans too. To the thing that dumped these poor kittens, you have no testes. You are guaranteed a place in the short line to Hades.

    There are far too many feral cats in Velez which are fed by well meaning folk so the population keeps rising most of who are in poor condition

    This happens often. Apama in Almunecar work tirelessly to save lives like this, fostering and finding adoptions for them. Vets bills are high but the save lives. Animals should be neutered.
