An urgent appeal has been issued to reunite five newborn kittens with their missing mum.

Leeds Cat Rescue has issued an appeal after a stray cat gave birth in someone's kitchen in Seaforth Mount, LS9 last night (Wednesday).

The cat and kittens were moved to Trafford Avenue, a few streets away, but the mum bolted outside the house early this morning and has not been seen since, leaving the five newborns to fend for themselves.

A post shared on social media said: "Leeds Cat Rescue has the kittens in care but we need mum to reunite her with her kittens. It's a bad pic, but if anybody has any reports of a small female cat fitting this description in the area, please contact us."
