Happy Ending for Abandoned Kittens

One night in early September, our former Cattery Manager Kat Gibbs was driving home from work when she came across 2 tiny kittens in the road near our Freshfields Animal Rescue centre in East Lane, Ince Blundell. Kat immediately called our staff to tell us that it was likely that there were other kittens who seemed to have been dumped on the road and were running around in the traffic. Our staff, volunteers, visitors and members of the public immediately set out to try and safely catch them. After days of searching and calling, 2 terrified youngsters were found alive - miraculously safe but completely traumatised. Bramble was found in a bramble bush, and Carly was coaxed to safety by a kind local fisherman who waited for hours in his car to find her. One of our lovely volunteer fosterers took them in, nurtured them and recently returned two happy kittens to Freshfields Cattery, ready to search for their forever home. We are now delighted to report that Bramble and Carly have been adopted - together! Dawn Hurst, Operations Manager, said:'These two gorgeous kittens are now safe and happy thanks to a massive effort from our wonderful and compassionate animal-loving local community. Staff from all of our Animal Units here, volunteers, wellwishers, local residents and passers-by, searched literally day and night for many days until the kittens were found. Tracy Shipley, one of our fosterers, took care of them and nursed them back to health. Now, Jay Mangan and his family from Formby have fallen in love and welcomed Bramble and Carly into their home. Together, we can save lives and work miracles! Thank you to everyone who played their part in this story of hope'. There are many more cats and kittens just waiting for their own miracle here at Freshfields Animal Rescue, and we need your support more than ever at this time of year.
