Girl Uses Birthday Money To Save 14 Abandoned Kittens

A kind young animal lover rescued 14 abandoned kittens who needed help. Lucinda, 13, was riding home along the Moonee Ponds Creek track when several kittens appeared in front of her.

“They were so cute. I didn’t want to leave them, they looked so forlorn and lost,” she said. “It was raining so I ran home to get a laundry basket to collect them.”

When she returned to take the kittens, another nine ran up to her.

Lucinda needed help for the 14 kittens so she called Lort Smith Animal Hospital and she was encouraged to bring them in.

“It was my birthday a few weeks ago and someone gave me $50 so I used it for a taxi to take the kittens into Lort Smith,” Lucinda said.

The kittens were vaccinated, castrated and microchipped before they found loving new homes.
