Seven-week-old kitten Bess is on the road to recovery, reports RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre
A seven-week-old kitten continues her recovery after being thrown out of a car window on the A46.
Bess, who was rescued by volunteers from the Radcliffe Animal Centre on July 17, is making good progress according to the RSPCA shelter.
"Her wounds are healing, her confidence is growing, and she is starting to play and thrive," said Lyn Jarrett, from the Radcliffe Animal Centre.
"She has shown such bravery and she is really starting to show us her personality.
"We are hopeful her injuries are not long lasting, but she will need to remain with us for a while yet so we can be sure she is coordinating and developing properly for a kitten of her age.
"It’s heartbreaking to look into her eyes and know what pain and trauma was senselessly inflicted upon her.
"However, as much as we are sickened by the acts of cruelty we deal with, we know to focus on the task in hand with positivity and hope.
"This gorgeous girl deserves every bit of attention she is getting and is testimony to the care we provide."
The centre, which is independently financed from the national RSPCA, has been severely affected during covid-19.
