Three

Rejected and unloved

Found abandoned in a cardboard box, these four tiny kittens were filthy, covered in fleas and fly eggs and couldn’t stop shaking. We were their last hope.

A close call for these little kittens

When the kittens arrived at Wood Green, it was clear they needed urgent help, one was almost lifeless and so they were quickly rushed to the vet team.

The nurse found that two of them had really low temperatures and put them straight into an incubator to get warmed up.

Live maggots were also stuck to the kittens’ fur, so all four were given warm baths before being dried, treated for fleas and started on a course of antibiotics and worming treatment.

If the kittens, later named ‘Big Fish’, ‘Little Fish’, ‘Cardboard’ and ‘Box’ hadn’t come into Wood Green when they did, they wouldn’t have survived.

After 48 hours, the kittens were not yet out of the woods, but they had started to pick up

All four responded well to veterinary treatment and after a couple of days they were ready to move on to one of our most experienced foster carers.

We knew she would give them the dedicated care they needed, feeding them small meals, checking their hydration levels and giving them their antibiotics.

The foster carer also had to thoroughly clean and sanitise their environment up to four times a day to minimise the risk of infection as they hadn’t yet had the chance to develop their immune systems.

Help us give vulnerable kittens a vital second chance at life

Four kittens in their cat enclosure

Over the course of their time with the fosterer, the kittens really turned a corner. They put on weight and became playful; a real sign they were thriving.

Now all four little souls are healthy and full of life, and they have all found loving homes.
