The tiny ball of fur, thought to be four weeks old, was handed to train staff who passed her on to the animal charity The Blue Cross. Veterinary nurses cleaned up the young cat, who was found on Monday evening covered in a sticky substance and named her Victoria after the central London station where she was found.
A spokesman for the charity, based close to Victoria station, said: “It is a mystery as to why she was left on her own, without her mum or possible littermates. “Little Victoria is certainly one of the most unusual items of lost property handed in to London Underground.” Because the kitten is so young and should be feeding from her mother, the nurses have been hand feeding her and providing round-the-clock care. Victoria is doing well and will be transferred to its rehoming centre in Lewknor, Oxfordshire, next week.
