Res­cued kit­tens find new home

Pilbara News - - News - Court­ney Fowler

Af­ter be­ing dis­cov­ered aban­doned on North West Coastal High­way out­side Ex­mouth, two lucky kit­tens have had a sec­ond chance at life af­ter they were flown to Perth to meet their new owner this month.

Sav­ing An­i­mals from Eu­thana­sia founder Sue Hedley said Bon­nie and Clyde, as they are af­fec­tion­ately known, were found by a group of young back­pack­ers trav­el­ling to Dar­win.

“They were on the side of the road de­hy­drated, mal­nour­ished and des­per­ately need­ing care,” she said.

“The trav­ellers took them in and cared for them for two days as they trav­elled north.

“They stopped at a pop­u­lar travel stop close to Kar­ratha, where they met some peo­ple who sug­gested SAFE would be a great op­tion for the two kit­tens for them to get the help they needed.”

SAFE foster carer Greer John­son said af­ter three weeks car­ing for Bon­nie and Clyde, she was thrilled to see them go to a lov­ing new home.

“They are re­ally lov­ing kit­tens and have come a long way in such a short pe­riod of time,” she said.

“Bon­nie and Clyde were ner­vous to get close at first, but af­ter a few days they were fall­ing asleep in my arms.

“Fos­ter­ing them has been so great for my own kids, it teaches them re­spon­si­bil­ity and the great feel­ing you get from help­ing out for a good cause.”
