Abandoned Stotfold kittens looking for a happy new home

A pair of kittens abandoned in Stotfold are looking for a new home after being rescued from a shoebox.
Found in Regent Street on the evening of Sunday, May 27, Jo Beazley – a volunteer for Luna Animal Rescue – saved the kittens.
Speaking to the Comet about the experience this week, she said: “I was getting something from my car when I saw several people at the corner shop in Regent Street looking at something on the floor and I heard them say the word ‘kitten’.
“Being a volunteer for the rescue charity and having just finished fostering four previous kittens, I thought I had better go and have a look.
“When I got there I saw a box on the floor and one kitten had been released from it, while the other was cowering scared still in the shoebox. From what I could see the box had no air holes and was taped up.
“It was so cruel of someone to just leave them there, not even close to a vet where they could be helped.”
Jo immediately took action.
“They were really hungry, thirsty and hot. I don’t know how long they had been there,” she said.
“I was really shocked, but knew straight away that I needed to get them to safe place to be checked over. Passersby didn’t really know what to do so I had to help.
“I took them in, we quickly set up a safe area for them, fed and watered them and they were taken to the vets the next day for a routine check and vaccinations.”
With Jo’s care and the help of Luna Animal Rescue, the kittens – named Chicken and Beef – are recovering well.
“They have been with me since I found them and they are now thriving, tearing around my living room and causing a lot of trouble,” said Jo.
“They are up for re-homing in the next week and I’m sure they will find a loving home.”
Chicken and Beef are just two of many pets being helped by Luna Animal Rescue, who have rehomed hundreds of animals since being founded in October 2013. The charity, which is registered to an address in Arlesey, has foster families across the UK, but mainly in the Beds, Herts and Cambs area.
