Rescued kittens find new home
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.”
