Lottie, the allotment kitten

Lottie was the only survivor from a litter of kittens born last year on our allotments. We never found out what happened to the other five, but little Lottie was a fighter and didn't give up.

I fed her every day in a fenced-off area behind our meeting room. She got used to me staying to watch her eat and I took many photos of her.

The Cats Protection League (CPL) lent us a trap to catch the adult cats but the first time I set it.......we caught little Lottie!

The CPL came to collect her, had her checked by the vet and looked after her for a few weeks till she was ready for rehoming.

We later heard that the new owners kept her name 'Lottie'.

What amazing blue eyes! Love the picture and the story. You are a good person for finding her a home and for feeding her until one could be found.

That's a great photo - Lottie is a real beauty. Bless you for caring for feral cats and for getting Lottie off to a good start in life with a new home through Cats Protection. It's heartwarming to know there are such kind people like you around to help animals in need.

She is gorgeous, her face looks as if there is a real warrior behind there, well done for catching her and giving her the chance of a safe and happy life

Hi Betty. What a charming little kitty. It was her luck to get caught at an early age and adopted instead of having to stay out all winter. Great job!

What a beautiful photo! Her beautiful blue eyes against the black fur with the greenery as! It's wonderful to hear that she got a new forever home. Please share any updates you may hear. Thank you for all of the kindest shown to the ferals.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
