Cats Protection launches Christmas animation
The animation is based on a true story of a kitten called Misty that went missing earlier this year.

‘Libby left behind’ is based on a true story

Leading feline charity Cats Protection has launched a heartwarming Christmas animation to raise awareness of the important work it does.

The animation is based on a true story of a kitten (pictured) that went missing earlier this year. Freezing cold and hungry, the kitten was dumped in a box on a roadside and somehow became separated from her brother and sisters.


Thankfully there is a happy end to this tail, and Libby - now named Misty - was eventually reunited with her littermates. Misty’s owner, Amy Smith, said: “Misty has settled amazingly well into our home, she has found a best friend in my daughter Lily and likes to follow her around the house. She also loves to chase bugs in the garden. We feel very lucky to have her.”
