THOSE involved in the rescue of a cat that was hit by a car on the M25 near Leatherhead have hailed its recovery ‘miraculous’.
A woman who was driving on the motorway last month saw the cat being hit by the vehicle ahead of her. The cat was knocked down but managed to make it to the hard shoulder, leading the woman to pull over, along with another motorist, and they put the animal, which was now unconscious but still breathing, into her car and took her to a vet in Leatherhead.
After two weeks the cat, which has been given the name Lilibet, is being cared for by a veterinary nurse, paid for by the Epsom and Ewell branch of charity Cats Protection, with who Belinda Newman is a volunteer.
Miss Newman said: “She had a broken pelvis and a broken jaw. She was terribly thin and covered in ticks, but she has made a miraculous recovery.”
Miss Newman believes Lilibet is around five years old and is now looking for a new home for her.
Anyone interested in offering the cat a home or who knows someone who has lost a cat which looks like Lilibet, is urged to contact Miss Newman by calling 01372 456652 or emailing email@example.com.
