A New Tale for a Rescued Kitten

Bruce’s tale
very nearly didn’t start at all. A year and a half ago the bedraggled one-day
old kitten was alone on a footpath in the rain.
                
Luckily he
was spotted by a woman who was walking home from work. She took him home and
fed him around the clock to keep him alive.



The kitten
was named after that other famous orphan, Bruce Wayne.



The tiny
kitten’s story went viral. He now has over 32,600 Facebook fans from all over
the world who hang on his every photo and exploit – including getting to know
his “big sister” Jager (also a rescue cat), and changing colour from grey to
black.

Along with
climbing trees and frolicking in the garden, Bruce now dedicates himself to
raising awareness of other cats and kittens in need. Bruce has helped other
cats like DeeDee find forever homes.



Kathryn van
Beek (Bruce’s human) has now written and illustrated a children’s picture book called
Bruce Finds a Home. 




The book,
which is based on the story of how Bruce was found, encourages children to care
for and be kind to animals.


The
book supports The Animal Rescue Network, a
charitable trust dedicated to helping stray and abandoned cats and
kittens.
Bruce is currently running a Kickstarter campaign which allows people to
pre-order copies of the book. There’s a range of rewards for those who pledge,
including custom illustrations and even Bruce’s pawtograph!

The book is already 87% funded with two weeks of the four-week Kickstarter
campaign still to run. We feel sure that Bruce will achieve his goal of
releasing his book, supporting The Animal Rescue Network and encouraging
children to be kind to animals.
