Flood kitten has new home with rescuer

WILSON the kitten made headlines last week when she was dramatically rescued after 30 hours stuck up a tree in the Wilsons River, surrounded by flood water.

She is a lot happier now, with one of her rescuers - Cheyne Paul from the Lismore SES, giving her a new home.

 

Ms Paul and her daughter Skyla were very excited to pick up the kitten from the Lismore Veterinary Clinic.

"I dropped Wilson at the vet and left my name and number if she wasn't adopted," Ms Paul said.

"I wasn't looking for a cat, but destiny got in the way."

As for the name, it has stuck, Ms Paul saying that she really had no choice in the matter because the river was where she came from.
