Staff at the shelter decided to name him Russell, and everyone immediately fell in love with the fluffy black kitten. Despite his ordeal, Russell was actually in fairly good condition, and didn’t appear to have any health conditions or issues. Once he was all cleaned up and settled in, he warmed up to the shelter staff immediately, warming the hearts of everyone who encountered him.
“This gorgeous little boy is just adorable,” Burnham said. “We’ve no idea where he has come from. He could be a kitten that’s gone missing or sadly been dumped; we just don’t know. Either way, mum was not around and he shouldn’t be outside on his own at such a young age.”
