A black and white kitten was found on a frosty New Year’s Eve in Boston.
Pilley’s Lane resident Mary Masterson said she heard a cat’s cries coming from a field near her home that evening.
“I kept hearing this cat and thought one must have been run over as this is quite a busy road here,” she said.
“I went out to try and find it but couldn’t see anything. But when I came back inside the cries started again.”
Venturing into the cold again, Mrs Masterson said she was greeted by the tiny kitten on her driveway.
“It’s such a lovable little thing - but as it’s so young I certainly don’t think it would have survived outside for very long.”
Her son visited homes in the area to ask if anyone had lost a kitten - but to no avail.
“I can’t imagine it would have been able to travel far as it’s very small,” she added. “We thought someone might have dumped it - but it looks like it had been well cared for.”
She is currently caring for the animal at her home.
