This is Karen, and just one of the cats in Cats Protection’s care, looking for her fur-ever home.
Karen is one of four tiny kittens who were found dumped in a cardboard box on the Ashdown Forest, a beauty spot just a short distance from Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre.
Desperately in need of care, the four-week-old kittens were discovered by a dog walker just a couple of days before heavy rain lashed the area. Far too young to be away from their mother, all four were dehydrated, hungry and in need of veterinary attention when they arrived at the centre.
As well as being abandoned, the kittens were all found to have deformed stumpy tails and Karen has an abnormally formed leg which may need to be amputated.
Karen and her other three siblings – Keith, Keiran and Kiri - all survived their ordeal and are now being cared for by staff at the centre until they are old enough to be rehomed.
The tiny kitten loves Felix kitten in jelly and Purina Pro Plan kitten biscuits and is just one of the 144 cats and kittens at Cats Protection’s National Cat Adoption Centre being fed by the important donation.

In partnership with the food industry, charity partners and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), FoodCloud has produced several short films which outline how redistribution of quality food benefits communities and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The initiative calls on Irish food manufacturers, suppliers and farmers to donate their surplus food to charities which would normally go to waste.
