An adorable one-week-old kitten that had been ditched in a garden shed during the height of the coronavirus pandemic was saved by a passerby who heard his desperate cries.

Logan, a grey tabby cat, was discovered in a garden shed and then to Grimsby’s Blue Cross Animal Hospital during coronavirus lockdown.

The kitten was so week it had to be hand-fed every three hours and was given round-the-clock care.

Hannah Owen, Animal Welfare Assistant at the Blue Cross branch, said the animal’s eyes "weren’t fully open," when he arrived.

She told GrimsbyLive : "When Logan first arrived here his eyes weren’t fully open, and we needed to hand-feed him using a bottle.

The little kitten was "so tiny" when he was discovered

"He was so tiny that we popped him into a small crate so he could spend lunch in the team room with us in safety.

Hannah added the tiny kitten would happily cuddle up with a teddy "that was double his size" and drift off to sleep and "have a good snooze."

Once Logan recovered, the Blue Cross then searched for a loving home for him, and he is now thriving in his forever home.

A spokesman added: "We couldn’t have done any of this without the generosity of our kind supporters, who rallied urgent calls for donations after many of our funding streams ground to a halt when the Covid-19 outbreak took hold.

"To all of you, thank you."
