Kitten finds new home after mother killed on Norfolk road

A three-month-old kitten, whose name was chosen by lottery players, has found his forever home after being orphaned when his mother was killed on a Norfolk road.

Tiny tabby and white Pickle and his siblings were just three weeks old when a passer-by saw their mother’s accident and rushed the kittens to Cats Protection’s adoption centre at Stow Bridge.

They were passed on to be fostered by the society’s cat care assistant at Dereham, Lynzi Sizeland.

She said: They were too young to fend for themselves. I had to play mum to them, including bottle feeding them.

"It has been a challenge but also a joy to help get them ready for re-homing by encouraging their natural play behaviour, taking them for vets visits and so on and I am so pleased they have all found loving homes.”

Lynzi’s role is supported by the People’s Postcode Lottery and players were asked to choose his name.

All four kittens have now been re-homed and lucky Pickle is living the high life with Michelle and Simon, from Norwich.

Michelle said: “Pickle has settled in beautifully with our little family of cats. He is so confident and playful and makes us laugh constantly. He gets on particularly well with one of our other cats, Horace.

“We kept his name as it suits him so well. He is agorgeous little pickle and we adore him”
