A passenger discovered the kitten in a box left on the train and took her to their customer services.
Tube worker Sue Cooper arranged for to be brought to the nearby Blue Cross animal hospital in Victoria to be checked over by vets. Nicknamed ‘Victoria’, she was covered in some unknown sticky substance. She was cleaned up but otherwise she was found to be well.
Because she was so young and should still have be feeding from her mum, the vet nurses stepped in to hand feed her and provide 24 hour care.
It is a mystery as to why she was left on her own, without her mum or possible littermates. Once healthy enough, Victoria was transferred to the Blue Cross Lewknor rehoming centre.
Little Victoria is certainly one of the most unusual items of ‘lost property’ handed in to London Underground.
