PRESS RELEASE : 9/12/16
Gorgeous Gordon fights battle to stay alive.
Local animal rescue charity, Rain Rescue have taken in a two day old kitten in an attempt to save his life.
The teeny tiny kit was saved after the mother cat rejected him and he wasn’t getting the vital feeds he needed.
Lauren Sanderson, Rain Rescue’s deputy manager, said: “After being contacted by a desperate member of the public asking if we could help, we took Gordon into our care. He is now in a foster home with one of the team receiving round the clock nursing and hand feeding. He’s very small for his age and although he is feeding well, he’s not out of the woods yet. ”
Gordon’s plight has gone viral on Facebook with over 50,000 people seeing the post of his arrival into the rescue and viewing daily updates on his progress.
Over the last year Rain Rescue, who are based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire have cared for over 460 abandoned and neglected dogs and cats, taking in those most vulnerable like cats and kittens abandoned on the streets and dogs due to be put to sleep in the local authority stray kennels.
