A South Mimms kitten is struggling to find his forever home because of his bent front leg and his fosterer is now desperately trying to find someone who will love the three month old.

Yoda's bent leg. Yoda's bent leg.

Yoda, who has a bent front leg, and his siblings were just three weeks old, along with their mum, when they were rescued from the streets and taken to a fosterer’s home in South Mimms.

Sam Griffin, 50, of South Mimms, has been fostering animals for the charity Animal Aid and Advice for 18 months and took the family of cats in.

Sadly Yoda was born with a wonky front leg, but it doesn’t stop him doing all the things cats can do.

A vet checked out Yoda’s leg and declared that there were no health problems due to his bent leg.

Sam told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “He is very friendly, loves to sit on my lap and be stroked but he can be naughty sometimes too.

“He needs to find a family who will look after him, but people who come to see us choose the other kittens with normal legs.”

Yoda, who is now just over three months old, has had all of his jabs, a micro chip and has no fleas or worms.

Animal Aid and Advice ask for a donation of £80 which would cover the costs of all his jabs, micro chip, flea and worm treatments and castration when he is old enough at Village Vets.

If you would like to give Yoda his forever home please contact Sam by emailing
