Tiny kitten found abandoned under hedge rescued by Blue Cross
A tiny kitten is being hand-reared by Blue Cross pet charity after been found abandoned under a hedge in Swindon.
The ginger and white kitten was just two weeks old when he was found all alone by a member of the public and brought to Blue Cross’s rehoming centre in Burford. It’s not known how he got there.
The cat, who has been named Burrito by staff, is now being hand-reared by staff before he is ready to be rehomed by the charity.
Selina Bennett, who is fostering the now five-week-old kitten for Blue Cross at her home, said he is doing well despite his terrifying ordeal.
She said: “Burrito is the most affectionate hand-rear I’ve ever had. He adores people and snuggles into you while he purrs loudly.
“He has a great relationship with my children and will rush to them when he hears their voices.
“We’ll be sad to see him go when it’s time for him to be rehomed but I’m sure there’ll be no shortage of takers for him.
“It’ll be great to see him head off to a loving new family when he’s ready.”
