    Police rescued a half-dozen kittens after someone threw them in a suitcase and left them for dead, the NYPD said.

    The felines had been tossed over a fence at a lot on Wythe Avenue near the Williamsburg Bridge in Brooklyn on Thursday evening, according to the Daily News.

    The 90th precinct tweeted photos of the little critters on Tuesday following their rescue.

    Sadly, a seventh kitten did not survive.

    The rescued kittens are now with the ASPCA awaiting adoption.

    Anyone with information about who tossed the cats is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
