“Luckiest Kitten in Britain” Rescued After Surviving Backyard Blaze

After a blazing garden fire had been extinguished by the firefighters in Sunderland, everyone was surprised to learn that a kitten was there and somehow survived.

The 14-week-old kitten, named Phoenix, was rescued by RSPCA after the owner of the backyard called them for help.

“When Phoenix arrived, she was in a really sorry state,” Luka Atkinson, reception supervisor at RSPCA Felledge, told Sunderland Echo. “She was just six weeks old back then and to see such a tiny kitten that way was really hard for us. The skin on all four of her pads was burnt off and the fur on her face, tummy and legs was singed – she was lucky to be alive,” she added.

While most animal victims get better as time passed, Phoenix actually got a bit worse because she suffered from heat burns rather than from being directly burned.

“This meant the full extent of her injuries took a few days to come out; initially her fur looked singed and fuzzy but it gradually started to fall out and her skin started to crisp and fall off,” Atkinson shared.

The RSPCA team worked 24/7 just to ensure that the “luckiest kitten” will not only survive but lead a normal life.

“It’s definitely been tough seeing Phoenix go through her recovery… but the whole time we have had her here she has been eating really well, drinking, and has loved cuddles and playing, so we knew we had to keep going with her treatment and give her a chance,” said Atkinson.

Atkinson had temporarily fostered Phoenix until RSPCA finds her a permanent home.

“She is such a happy little thing and she eats, plays and loves fuss just like any other kitten and we hope people won’t be scared by her appearance while she heals,” shared Atkinson. “She runs riot with the other kittens at our center so we are just happy we have her a chance and saved her life – she really is the luckiest kitten in Britain.”

Neverland Ranch is Back On The Market: Take A Look Around the Amusement Park

Situated in the Santa Ynez Valley of Santa Monica, California, the almost 3,000 acre plot of land upon which Neverland Ranch was constructed has recently been placed back on the market. Nowadays, the one-time residence of international pop sensation Michael Jackson is going by a new name: Sycamore Valley Ranch. Much of the estate is as it was during the 15 years Jackson called it his home, except for a few glaring differences – namely, the removal of the fun-fair rides that gave the home its whimsical name Neverland Ranch. The very last vestiges of where the carousel once spun are still visible as you go through the grounds. Read on for an in-depth view of the ranch.
