According to Herrera, the kitten was found in a serious condition but she believes it will recover.

She said the little feline was suffering from dehydration, hypothermia and hypoglycaemia.

Herrera added: ‘We have to keep bathing her so her skin does not get too irritated. She only weighs 200 grams (7 ounces) so we do not want to poison her.’
