A MAN who stopped to rescue a cat which had been hit by a car and left for dead in Syon Lane is hoping to reunite it with its owner.
Jason Taylor of Osterley Gardens, Osterley, was on his way to the shops when he passed what he thought was a dead animal on the road, on his return he realised that it was in fact a barely alive cat.
He decided to help and gently manoeuvred the tortoiseshell puss into a box and battled against the clock to get the creature some help at about 8pm on October 31.
He said: "I was panicking the whole time that she would die. I can't believe how many people just drove by and didn't try and help me, this poor cat was almost dead on the road and no one seemed to care."
After trying two vets and the RSPCA branches in Southall and West Ealing, all of which were closed, he finally managed to get the feline fighter to Putney RSPCA.
Jason added: "The vet there said all they could do was put her on oxygen, the odds didn't look good, but I said whatever they needed to do I would fund it."
The kitten, named Little Puss by Jason, was diagnosed with a fractured pelvis and used up all of its nine lives up to make a seemingly purrfect recovery.
However, despite the happy twist to the tail Jason cannot look after her, he lives in a flat and works long hours as a video editor.s
He said: "The bill came to £484 in total, which was more than I was expecting, but it was worth every penny. I have put up posters to look for her owners but no one has come forward."
