A KITTEN has miraculously escaped death after being run over by a tractor and plough on a Hampshire farm.

The six-week-old kitten Meadow was discovered by a farmer buried deep in the earth that his plough had turned over.

Deputy manager, Liz Wood, said: "The farmer's tractor and plough had already run over the land she was on so she must have gone right underneath the deadly contraption - it’s a miracle she came out alive let alone unscathed."

The long-haired kitten was checked for a microchip, but had no identification. She has been posted on PetsLocated and RSPCA staff are now searching for her owner.

Liz added: "If anyone recognises Meadow then I’d urge them to get in touch. She could be a stray who got separated from her mum so if no one comes forward to claim her then we’ll eventually be looking for a new home for her - once she’s big enough.

"For now, she’s living with me and my other foster kitten, Sarah Beeny, who was rescued from 20ft inside a cavity wall. They’re a pair of adventurous kitties that’s for sure."

RSPCA animal collection officer Natasha Clarke collected the kitten after the incident, where she was taken to an animal centre for care.

It is not known why the kitten was on the farm.
