Little fluffy kitten found on Tube train

Thursday 11 July 2013
A tiny fluffy kitten has been found in a box on a Tube train in central London.
The cat, named Victoria after the station where she was found, is being taken care of by Blue Cross, an animal charity.
It is not clear how the animal ended up on the tube, or where her mother is. A passenger found her on the train in a box and handed her over to staff.
She was cleaned up by the animal charity's vets, who said she had "a sticky substance" on her fur. She is being given round-the-clock care and being hand-fed by nurses because she should still be fed by her mother.
A spokesman for the charity, which has a surgery near the 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."
The charity said Victoria was doing furry well, and it was paws-itive she would be transferred to its rehoming centre in Lewknor, Oxforshire next week.
