Out walking their dog they could hear her distressing cries, what they found her, days from death, a kitten struggling to even walk.
They were taking their dog for a walk near Bill Quay, South Shields, UK, when a couple heard some cries of distress? Near the river, they found her, skin, and bone, a little kitten struggling to even walk, she was mere days from death.
They were told to leave her where she was, however, despite this advice the couple called a local shelter who immediately came to the kitten’s aid.
Lisa Wood, a volunteer with Willow Cat Adoption Centre is now giving her all the care and attention she needs.
The kitten’s brush with death was a very near thing. The poor feline had been attempting to eat dirt just to survive.
“Had the couple not brought her to us when they did she would have died a very slow and agonising death. It would have taken a couple of days for her to die,” said Lisa.
