Newborn Kitten Found Alone in a Park

Friday, May 02, 2014

Meet adorable little orphan Boo. Highcroft client, Alex Thomas, stumbled across Boo whilst he was taking photos in a local park; he could hear her crying and found the 8-day-old kitten alone in the brambles amongst some rubble.

She was cold and hungry so Alex took her home to look after her. However his partner Jessica Bookham, pictured below with Boo, is expecting her first baby and they found it difficult to keep up with the two hour feeds that Boo needed. So they brought her in to Highcroft where veterinary nurse, Ashley, took over and hand reared her. Ashley has hand-reared over 100 animals within the last 6 years so Boo was in good hands.

Boo is now completely healthy and happy and has just been returned to Alex and Jessica who have adopted her into their family, with Marley the cat, and soon to be joined by their own baby.

What should you do if you find an animal?

If you come across an abandoned animal, Ashley recommends that you watch them for a couple of hours to make sure the mother doesn’t return. If you take them away after that it's important that you phone the RSPCA to report the incident.
