On a cold day in Hoxton, London, passerby Chantelle McLaren-Smith noticed a small kitten on the pavement. She heard meows coming from underneath a nearby van’s hood and, upon opening the hood, found Tabby Kit among his three other siblings. The kittens were small, frightened, and shivering.
Tabby Kit’s mother was scared off as soon as the hood opened, and was never found again. His mother had found refuge underneath the van’s hood and gave birth sometime during the car’s 60-mile trek from Essex to London!
McLaren-Smith took it upon herself to nurse the kittens until she was able to get them to the nearest RSPCA animal shelter, located in Putney, a district in southwest London.
Unfortunately, none of Tabby Kit’s siblings made it through the evening. He was the only survivor.
However, Tabby Kit was not in this alone. McLaren-Smith’s two dogs, Chilli, a Jack Russell terrier, and Rodney, an American bulldog, helped nurse Tabby Kit back to health.
