A six-week-old kitten that was dumped in the woods by her owner and got caught in a trap is on the road to recovery.

The frightened animal, set to be renamed Peggy or Matilda, was taken to Beck Vets after being found last Friday.

They removed 5,000 maggots and eggs from the moggy’s mangled front leg, which they are now trying to save after it became infected . Head nurse Sue Connor has decided to adopt the little moggy herself and said: “She is only using the bottom half of the leg – it’s like she’s walking on her wrist. She will have to have a lot of treatment for a long time. She is jumping around and she’s very, very friendly. She’s just not bothered by what’s happened at all.”
