A tiny kitten found abandoned in a cardboard box by some shop bins in Carterton has found a new home.
Five-week-old Baby was found all alone by a passing cyclist who heard her desperate meows.
She was taken to Burford animal charity Blue Cross who, as well as naming the kitty, gave her some much-needed TLC.
Baby was very thin, covered in fleas and terrified by even the smallest noise or movement, which staff put down to her “terrifying experience” of being dumped outside in the cold.
She is now in the loving care of one of their foster carers where she will grow in confidence in a home environment before being put up for rehoming.
Her foster carer Stacey Calladine said: “When Baby first arrived she was worried by even the smallest noise or movement but taking things at her own pace, she has really come out of her shell.
“She is now a bold, brave and friendly kitten who we are very happy to see go off to a loving new home.”
Jenna Martyn, senior rehoming manager at Blue Cross, urged people to take animals to the charity if they feel they can no longer look after them. She stressed staff do not judge when animals need to be rehomed.
