Evesham firefighter gains furry new family member

AN EVESHAM firefighter gained a furry new family member after adopting a kitten his colleagues found from a flat in the town.

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Fire Service on-call crew commander Kyle Annis heard about the discovery from crewmates, who had supported paramedics after a man was found dead in an Evesham flat.

Crew members heard a faint distressed ‘mewing’ noise and discovered a tiny kitten hiding in the background.

The kitten was found relatively healthy despite being malnourished and dehydrated.

The fire service members dropped the kitten off at Eveshams Cats Protection League, where it was cared for until it could find a new home, after agreeing on this with the deceased person’s family.

While there, the protection league called the kitten ‘Red’ in honour of the service that found him.

Kyle, 26, checked with his family and wasted no time in offering the kitten a new home.

He said: “It was sad that the resident was beyond help, but we were pleased the kitten was very much alive, if rather weak.

“Needless to say, we’re all delighted that Red has bounced back to health and is now full of mischief, and my family are thrilled to have a new pet.”
