Poppy was tiny – she was taken straight to the vets for a health check. She was underweight, dirty, infested with fleas and worms and had scabby fur with sore patches on her legs.

After two weeks in CP care Poppy’s weight had doubled. The branch said she looked a picture of health and her confidence was coming on in leaps and bounds.

Slowly but surely Poppy progressed and gained weight. She was separated from her mum, so that mum Josie could have a quieter time and rebuild her strength. The vet’s opinion is that Josie has had litter after litter of kittens.
The branch said: “Coming into CP care has given Poppy the chance to find a new home. She now looks and acts like any other young kitten!”
Mum Josie is doing well and has now been adopted by a new owner, while Poppy should be ready for adoption early in the New Year.
