Foundation seeks a home for kitty

IF there is any truth to a cat’s nine lives then an unexpected visitor to the Endeavour Foundation Industries is down to eight as she escaped the near tragedy of becoming a recycled kitty.

Manager Lisa Wilson was alerted by her concerned workers yesterday morning as they went through the usual Monday plan after receiving a crate of cardboard from the dump to recycle.

As the workers were placing the boxes into a compressor they were surprised by a quiet meow just before they threw the item in to be crushed.

“It would have been potentially really ugly if the boys didn’t see it, financially disastrous and traumatic for the guys,” Mrs Wilson said.

Mrs Wilson said they were going to contact animal welfare yesterday to take care of the kitty and make sure she was either returned to her home or find her a new one.

“You like to think the best, and think no one has dumped her ... She has a beautiful nature and is really friendly,” she said.
