There were two bin bags with two cats in each – one of which was pregnant.
The boy’s mum Donna desperately phoned the RSPCA after making the gruesome find.
Donna, who has five cats of her own, told GrimsbyLive: “My boy was so distraught at what he saw and the neighbours’ cats are scared of going out of their homes.
“Cats have a sense there is something wrong and don’t go near this area.”
She added: “I was sickened that anyone could do this to pet cats.
“I daren’t look in the undergrowth because there could be many more. It stinks.
“I just want to know how they died. Until we can get in there, we don’t know how many there are.
“It could be for breeding and then they are murdered. They are all young ones.”
Donna had seen a silver people carrier visit the car park in Grimsby on several mornings previously.
She said the driver had thrown bin bags from the car before driving off.

Inspector Laura Jones is appealing for information to find out how the cats died.
She said: “This is an extremely distressing and concerning discovery.
“At this stage, we don’t know how these cats died however, it is unlikely that these four healthy looking cats died naturally so we are very keen to find out what happened to them.
“They were found in bin bags in some undergrowth not far from the social club.
“They looked in good body condition and there were no obvious injuries apart from some blood on their noses.”

She added: “We believe one of the female cats was also sadly pregnant when she died.
“There were other dumped bin bags found in the area which the caller was concerned could potentially hold more bodies but on closer inspection, these ones did appear to have rubbish in them.”
The cats – believed to be of Oriental or Siamese breed – were not microchipped and appeared to have died recently.
