A orphan kitten – thought to have been abandoned by its mum in a hedge on the Royal Welsh Showground – has been given a home by Penarth Councillor Ben Gray and his wife.
The six week old kitten was discovered alone in a hedge at the showground’s car park where this week Cllr Gray has been supervising operations at the show’s busy Park and Ride system which used by hundreds of thousands of visitors.
Luckily RSPCA officers Phil Lewis and Warwick Burgess managed to extract the little animal from the hedge . He was checked out by a local Builth Wells veterinary practice,. given a clean bill of health and was then promptly adopted by Cllr Gray and his wife Claire who will be bringing him to their home in Penarth.
The kitten has already been given a forename “Oscar” – and a surname “Hedge” – in recognition of the surroundings in which the little animal was found .
He’ll be joining the Grays’ other cat “Rolo” at their home in Penarth’s Plymouth Ward.
