A tiny newborn kitten who was cruelly dumped in a bin is recovering well after being rescued.
The little furry bundle, who's has now been named Misty, was just hours old when she was found by a member of the public in a bin on Harwood Court in Salford.
She still had her umbilical cord attached and had been tied up in a carrier bag. The person who found her called the RSPCA and she is now being hand-reared by fosterer Joanne Yoli.
RSPCA Inspector Lorna Campbell said:
Lorna said she is also very worried for the mum, who could develop mastitis if she doesn’t have a kitten to take her milk.
“I have made enquiries in the local area but I am eager for anyone who may have information to contact us in confidence on the inspectorate appeal line, 0300 1238018,” she said.
Joanne, who is fostering Misty alongside five other kittens, said:
The other kittens Joanne is looking after include seven-day-old Milly, who was brought into the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital, and Pixie, who was found lying on a pavement when she was just two days old.
