    Out on purr-role: Cute kittens born in a prison van are rescued after their mother 'broke in' to jail to give birth

    • Six kittens were found in a van inside Parc Prison in Bridgend, South Wales
    • It is a mystery how cat managed to get inside to give birth to the kittens
    • Mother and her six kittens were rescued by animal centre Cats Protection

    Prison staff found themselves lumbered with some extra inmates after a cat broke in to a high security prison van to give birth to six kittens.

    Wardens discovered the adorable cats when they opened the rear doors of the van parked inside Parc Prison in Bridgend, South Wales.
    They immediately called an animal centre to come and relieve the young kittens from their brief stretch behind bars.

    But their frightened mother ran off before she could be caught - and left the kittens behind. They were bottle-fed every two hours and all were doing well today.

    Centre manager Sue Dobbs, 46, said: 'It’s the first time we’ve rescued a cat from inside the walls of a well-guarded prison.

    'We don’t know how the mother cat got in there - maybe inside the van.

    'When staff opened the door at 8am they saw the cat and her six kittens lying there.

    On the mend: The tiny kittens need to be fed every two hours but are healthy and growing well

    'The temptation was to call them after notorious villains - but we decided to name them after more positive criminal-busting legends.'
    It is thought that the cats were only in the van for one night as it is used daily.
    The mother cat was later captured at the Parc Prison which houses 1200 men and young offenders.
    Staff were concerned she would reject her kittens as they had been bottle fed and handled by humans.

    But they solved the problem by smearing the kittens with cat food to disguise the human smell.
    She has been named Agatha and was today back happily mothering her six kittens.

    They will spend the next eight weeks at the cat rescue centre before being microchipped and re-homed.

    ^^Yes!! As cute as they are, there just aren't enough homes for all the ones left to breed by irresponsible owners.

    Nothing cuter than a kitten except several kittens. I wish I could take them all. But millions are euthanized each year and millions more live outside as strays. Breaks my heart. Not only do pets need to be spayed/neutered but the strays have to be trapped and spayed/neutered as well. It's overwhelming.
