Skippy – the kitten found in a skip.

8th August 2017

Skippy, a six week old kitten, was found by workers at a Carlisle waste facility, alone in a skip, covered in rubbish. The caring workers, having checked that no mother was around to take care of her, took her immediately to Eden Veterinary Centre who gave him a clean-up and a full medical check-over.

The staff at Eden then contacted Oak Tree Animals’ Charity to see if we were able to take care of her and look towards finding her a permanent home.

Being six weeks old, it was important that Skippy gained experience home-life before permanent rehoming. We were able to find her a caring foster home for a few weeks in preparation for finding a loving new forever home.

The latest news is that Skippy is thoroughly exploring and enjoying her new foster home. The staff at Oak Tree are delighted!
