Blue Cross calls kitten found on tube 'a mystery'

A four-week-old kitten found on the London Underground has been deemed the "most unusual items of 'lost property'" by the Blue Cross today.

The kitten was discovered on a train at Victoria station on Monday night.

A spokesman for the charity said today:

A passenger discovered the kitten in a box left on the train and took her to their customer services.

Tube worker Sue Cooper arranged for to be brought to our nearby Blue Cross animal hospital in Victoria to be checked over by vets.

Nicknamed ‘Victoria’, she was covered in some unknown sticky substance and cleaned up but otherwise she was found to be well.

Because she is so young and should still be feeding from her mum, our vet nurses have stepped in to hand feed her and provide 24 hour care.

It is a mystery as to why she was left on her own, without her mum or possible littermates. She will be transferred to our Lewknor rehoming centre soon.

Little Victoria is certainly one of the most unusual items of 'lost property' handed in to London Underground.
