Dumped kitten is found in a box08 Aug 2012
A kitten found dumped in a box along with his dead littermate is on the mend after being taken in by Blue Cross.
The grey and white kitten, named Jenson by staff, was found in London and taken to one of the Blue Cross animal hospitals for treatment.
Understandably given his horrible start to life, Jenson was very subdued and underweight when he came into our care.
But he quickly brightened up and started to gain weight. Jenson is a really happy, playful kitten and has managed to put his past behind him.
Once he was given the all clear he was transferred to our Hertfordshire rehoming centre and he will soon be looking for a new home.
He’s a lively and fun young boy and, just like his racing driver namesake, very fast!
Blue Cross has taken in more than 1,100 dumped, stray and abandoned pets so far this year. Jenson was fortunate because he was brought to us but we know that thousands of animals on the UK’s streets aren’t so lucky.
We urge anyone who is struggling to care for their pet to contact a charity like us and rehome them responsibly.
If you’re interested in giving Jenson a home please contact our supporter care team on 0300 790 9903.
