Get meowt of here! Meet Victoria, the abandoned kitten found on the Tube
Metro [UK] ^ | 11 Jul 2013 | Connor Sephton

Posted on 07/12/2013 2:37:43 AM PDT by Slings and Arrows

A kitten that’s believed to be just four weeks old has been found abandoned on a London Underground train.

The tiny feline was handed into Tube station staff when commuters discovered her on a District line service on Monday evening. It’s unclear how she ended up on the network.

She’s now in the safe hands of animal charity Blue Cross, which said a sticky substance had covered her dark fur.

Nurses have named her Victoria based on where she was treated at the charity’s animal hospital, which is in the central London area. After all, other options including Piccadilly, District and Circle just didn’t seem right for her.

A London Underground spokesperson said: ‘We see a lot of lost property at Victoria station, but it isn’t usually so wriggly!’

Her age means that she needs round-the-clock care, as Victoria’s mother would normally be feeding her.

Victoria is going to be taken to the Blue Cross rehoming centre next week, where it’s hoped she’ll find a loving new owner.

Looks like it’s all change for this well-travelled kitten.

If this cat had been found on Boston’s MBTA, she’d have to be named “Charlie”, but “Victoria” works for a British kitty found on the Tube.

It's a great kitty name, period - they all think they're royalty.

Look for the calls to start coming in for her when she is ready to be placed.

My initial reaction to the title was how does a kitty get found on YouTube.......

The tongue in that position is a cat’s “I’m hungry” sign.

You’re attempting to brainwash us with pictures of cute kittens.

It won’t work.

Wish I could get hold of the person who abandoned that tiny baby. Was it really too much trouble to drop her off at a shelter?

With the publicity (and the pics), I bet she will get a good home very soon.

She may not have been abandoned. I wonder if it was a case of a stray mama trying to move her brood to the train when the train pulled out.

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

Innocent children could see pictures like these and be overcome by emotion.

Have you no decency?
