Utterly Paw-some! Adorable cat abandoned at bus station adopted by Wrocław mayor
An abandoned cat is Feline fine after finding a new home - with the mayor of Wrocław.
The kitten was found in the early hours of Friday morning after being dumped by a family at a bus station in the city.
The family, two adults and a boy and a girl, were reportedly planning to catch a bus to Prague but didn’t realise they couldn’t take the moggy with them.
Instead they left the British shorthair cat in a corner of the bus station where it was found by a member of staff who took it to a local animal shelter.
The shelter then posted the story on social media where it was seen by Wrocław mayor Jacek Sutryk.
Taking heart, the mayor then made the surprise move of posting on Facebook the news that he had decided to adopt the cat and invited locals to help name him.
Today he posted an update saying the cat’s name was Wrocek and that he had officially moved in.
The mayor wrote: “Today I became the guardian of Wrocek :) :) :)
“Despite the accompanying stress for both of us, we became friends at first sight :)
“This little friend will be present in my office from today. Anyone who is worried that Wrocek will not have proper care here, calm down - Wrocek will live with me, every day, every weekend we will spend together, while during the week he will be adequately looked after by myself and my colleagues in the Office, where he will have his own cozy place.”
Prosecutors say they have now been contacted and if the person responsible for leaving the cat can be located and is found guilty of deliberate abandonment, they could face up to three years in prison.
