In Aubagne near Marseille, neighbours became aware of a frantic mewling sound that went on day and night. It seemed to last for days and local residents became concerned.
Eventually, they located the source of the noise to a balcony and a tiny, desperate kitten. At first, they may have assumed that the kitten’s owners were out at work, or worse had gone on holiday and left the little kitty alone.
A shocking discovery
But, the truth might just be even more concerning...It seems that while the cat cried desperately in sub-zero temperatures, her owners were inside watching TV and going about their normal lives – callously oblivious to her fear.
But, as we all know, animal people are the best people and it didn’t take long for cat-loving neighbours to intervene. They contacted Société Protectrice des Animaux Maltraités et Errants (SPAME), an animal welfare organisation, and alerted them to the sad kitty’s plight.
A timely rescue
Shortly afterwards, volunteers arrived with the support of the local fire, rescued the kitty and took her to safety.
Thought to be less than a year old, the cat is now safe at the sanctuary and waiting patiently for her loving forever home.
You deserve a great family little one, fingers crossed the perfect people come along soon.
