A post went up on Facebook about a kitten that was found deceased in a back garden on Poplar Road in Strood. We attended and checked for a chip and to determine the cause of death.
The kitten wasn’t chipped, he is a ginger tabby and looks around 12 weeks of age. He wasn’t wearing a collar.
There was no sign of predation on the kitten, no bite marks or puncture wounds. The kitten was extremely skinny, all bones could be felt and the kitten had a lot of fleas. We are sure that the cause of death is malnourishment and/or flea anemia.
This kitten could have got himself lost and not been able to find a constant food source as he is so young.
Rest in paws heaven little darling boy xxxx
We will keep him safe at HQ and continue to search for his owners.
