Found in a field

Elliott was just six weeks old when he was found in a field, cold and alone, by a member of the public.

The family did what they could for this tiny, filthy, black-and-white kitten. They contacted Cats Protection’s Swindon Branch who took him straight to the vet.

The vet confirmed the little cat had a damaged eye caused by cat flu and various parasites because of his outdoor life, but he was otherwise reasonably healthy.

A happy ending for energetic Elliott
Elliott stayed at the vet to receive treatment, then the branch collected him. With care from CP fosterers, Elliott began to build up his strength and became more playful, developing a love of hiding under the kitchen settle and pouncing on passing people!

The good news is that Elliott has now been adopted by Swindon’s branch treasurer, Jess Knowles, who says: “Elliott is lovely. He is really hyper a lot of the time and spends the majority of his time running around the house skidding into furniture.”

  1. Happy to know he has a home. Looks like my kitten.

  2. Oh how lovely he is my cat Dante was found on hills all alone here in Genoa Italy and he was taken to a rescue centre where I adopted him and he's very much like Elliot, he runs about bumping into furniture. I discovered later that Dante is a Turkish Van cross breed so he's a rare cat. Everyone should go to a rescue centre to get a cat because most cats who are there have a great need for affection and love and they do give you happiness in your life. I wouldn't be without my Dante.

    1. Thanks for sharing Dante's story, we're glad to hear it worked out well for both of you. CP is caring for lots of cats in the UK looking for caring owners just like you!
