    The Queen’s chauf-FUR! Pregnant three-legged Persian cat found living in dirty shed is living life of luxury after being rescued and adopted by Her Majesty’s head driver

    • Flo, a four-year-old white cat, was rescued by RSPCA in March in a ‘terrible state’
    • She was saved from a shed in Hayes, west London, and nursed back to health
    • Flo was adopted by Victoria Fitzgerald and her father Andy – the Queen’s driver

    A pregnant three-legged cat found in a dirty shed has been adopted by the Queen’s chauffeur and is living in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.

    Flo, a four-year-old white moggie, was rescued by the RSPCA in March in a ‘terrible state’ after she was found in the shed in Hayes, west London.

    After being saved and nursed back to health, she was adopted by Victoria Fitzgerald and her father Andy, who is the Queen’s driver.

    The cat had been living in a dirty basket in the outbuilding and was taken to the vets with an injury to her right front leg, which meant half of the limb was missing.

    She was taken to RSPCA Putney Animal Hospital in west London for treatment where the vets had to amputate the rest of her leg.

    Flo was also pregnant with one kitten which sadly did not survive birth. Her recovery was slow following two surgeries and the vets were unsure if Flo would pull through.

    She was fostered by Victoria, one of the veterinary assistants at Putney, who helped care for her throughout her ordeal.

    After a few weeks of fostering Flo, Victoria and her father decided they wanted to adopt the three-legged feline.

    As the Queen’s staff, Victoria and her parents live in The Royal Mews, part of the grounds at Buckingham Palace.

    Victoria said: ‘She really has gone from Aristocat to Aristocrat now she is living in the life of luxury compared to where she was before.

    ‘She is getting pampered with me and my parents and she has settled in so well and gets on really well with my other pets.’

    Victoria, who has worked for the RSPCA for three years also has four other pets: crossbreed dog Oscar, Albie the cat and two kittens who she is hand rearing called Maurice and Flounder.

    She added: ‘It is the most rewarding part of the job to see an animal who was in such an awful state like Flo was, be rehabilitated and find a loving home – and it’s even better that Flo could come and live with us at Buckingham Palace.’

    The animal charity’s hospitals, animal centres and frontline officers have continued to work throughout the coronavirus crisis.
