The kittens were in pretty rough shape, found squished and sealed in the box among their own urine and feces, according to Charlestown Police.

Police said all of the kittens were alive in the box, though one had suffered head trauma, causing its eyes to be pushed out of the sockets.

Police brought the kittens, which are estimated to be about 10 weeks to 12 weeks old and are pets, not feral cats, to Charlestown Animal Control.
