Can you give a home to a kitten in need of love?

NEGLECTED and abandoned cat Milly has come through the most shocking of starts in life.

Vets believe she was partially blinded after being swung around by her tail and beaten over the head, before being dumped at the edge of a Cardiff wood.

But eight-month-old Milly is now being looked after by animal foster carers with a cats' charity.

They are keen to give the abused pet a happy ending by finding her a new and loving home.

And Fran Ross, a volunteer at animal charity Cardiff Cats Protection, is also hoping to find new homes for two seven-week-old kittens, Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee.

Mrs Ross said she was distressed after hearing about Milly's ordeal.

The 67-year-old, of Llanishen, Cardiff, said: "This has just upset us to be quite honest - how could someone do this? "Whoever had it has neglected the cat and then to go ahead and just dump it is just unbelievable."

Milly was found in a basket during torrential rain on June 7 by a couple walking their dog in Whitchurch.

The little cat, believed to be about eight months old, was taken to a local vet before being placed with a voluntary foster carer at Cardiff Cats Protection. Mrs Ross said Cardiff Cats Protection were keen to find a new, loving home for Milly.

The grandmother-of-five said: "We would love to find someone really caring. This cat is no trouble - it just wants to be cuddled really. It's a beautifully natured cat. It purrs when you pick it up."
