Gus had to have his tail amputated after he was attacked by a fox


An animal charity in Kensal Green is appealing for an adopter for a kitten who lost his tail following a fox attack.

Over the last two months Gus has been in the care of the Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, but has been nursed back to health and is ready for pastures new.

He was two-months-old when he arrived at the home with his back legs and tail stiff and sore.

An x-ray showed that his limbs would heal however his tail would have to be amputated.

He’s a lovely, playful adorable kitten who is rocking the stumpy tail look with pride.

If you are interested in adopting Gus or any other animals visit the Mayhew’s website.
