Newark: Kitten hurled from moving vehicle on A46 is now thriving thanks to RSPCA Radcliffe
A kitten that was hurled from a moving vehicle on the A46 and left for dead is now thriving in her new home.
Little Bess was lucky to survive after landing on her face after being thrown from a car around 12 months ago.
The six-week-old kitten suffered trauma to her eye, nose and mouth. There was concern she may have also suffered injury to her brain from the force of the impact.
A member of the public witnessed the incident and an occupant of the car throwing more objects from the window.
It dawned on them there may have been more kitten hurled from the vehicle, and they searched the area to find them.
However, only Bess was found and taken into the care of RSPCA Radcliffe.
Bess is now thriving in her new home and is playful and mischievous.
Although her story is shocking, it's not unique. To help the Radcliffe animal centre to continue providing care to animals like Bess in order for them to recover and start new lives, you can donate £10 by texting RADCLIFFE to 70085 (texts cost £10 plus one standard rate message).
