WILLIAMSBURG, Brooklyn — NYPD officers rescued six gray kittens from a suitcase that was discarded in a parking lot near the Williamsburg bridge Tuesday.

The abandoned kittens were found just before 7:30 a.m. at a parking lot on Wythe Avenue, according to police. After the officers rescued the kittens, they were taken to American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals for a medical examination.

The NYPD also posted photos of the kittens on Saturday. They seem to be in good health and one even posed as “surprised kitty” in one photo.

They do not know how the kittens ended up at the parking lot and are investigating the incident.
