Kitten found dumped in bin bag finds a forever home just in time for Christmas

A two-month-old kitten who was found dumped in a carrier bag by the bins has found a loving home in time for Christmas.

The black and white kitten was rescued after a passer-by noticed the bag moving and called animal charity Blue Cross for help.

On arriving at the charity’s rehoming centre in Southampton, the kitten was named Grace by the team and went straight into a foster home.

Kim Simpson, animal welfare sssistant at Blue Cross, fostered Grace when she first came into the centre.

She took care of the young kitty until Grace was ready to find her forever home.

And just in time for the holidays, Grace was adopted last week.

Welfare assistant Kim said: ‘Poor Grace was covered in flea dirt and was obviously starving.

‘She was struggling to eat by herself and needed a lot of encouragement so I had to hand-feed first to encourage her but then she wolfed down the food given to her. She slept a lot, obviously exhausted from her ordeal, but wanted to be with me at all times.’

The kitten quickly regained her strength.

Kim added: ‘Grace became a typical kitten, she loved to play and would dart around the house and charge up and down the stairs. She was so friendly and so cuddly, she would purr away as I stroked her.

‘We’re delighted she’s gone off to a new home in time for Christmas where she will be loved and totally spoiled.

‘The new owner had told us she is settling in well and is a total joy which is great to hear. I think Grace will be having a very merry Christmas in her new home.’

Blue Cross is making sure the pets in its care who don’t have a home all have an extra special day by providing a special Christmas dinner for them.
