A cat found abandoned entombed in a sealed cardboard has a new home in time for Christmas.
Back in October we brought you the story of the black cat that was saved thanks to an inquisitive dog being taken for a walk across Walsworth Common, Hitchin.
The dog refused to leave the box that was sealed with tape and abandoned on the common.
Now, after being cared for by an RSPCA rescue cattery in Arlesey, the cat has been re-homed with a family that already has two cats in Langford.

"It is great news at a time when we are suffering a crisis with so many cats being handed in or abandoned," said Pat Trussell, secretary of the local RSPCA group.
"This cat was left to die. She has now been re-named Wallis, has been neutered, micro-chipped and fully vaccinated for her new life. She is one of three cats at the house who enjoy a lovely garden and surrounding fields.

"This was a happy ending to this story but there are so many other cats in need of a home and the number of cats being abandoned and needing homes is growing all the time."
