A woman in Gävle has gotten in trouble after she called the police to say she had found a bag in the forest containing seven kittens. That turned out to be a lie, the kittens were her own but she didn’t know what to do with them after the mother cat disappeared.

The authorities charged her with wasting police time. The newspaper “Aftonbladet” reports that those charges have now been dropped, but instead she will probably have to pay costs for the animal shelter that took care of the kittens after she called the police. “And that won’t be cheap” says Gävle Police spokesperson Mikael Hedström.

The good news is that after all the publicity, there are lots of people who say they would like to give a home to one of the orphaned kittens.
