I could NOT, in conscience, leave this kitten!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ok, so...I found a little, tiny 5-6 week old kitten, & actually thought it was dead. Picked it up and it MOVED! It's poor little eyes were matted shut, as was it's little nose. I cleaned off it's face and it opened it's sick little eyes. I gave it some liquid antibiotics, I had(for another feral, older cat), --it took them, and wanted more! So, I gave it dropperfuls of water and then spoonfed it some canned catfood mixed with water. Then, it looked like it got real bad again(like, in a coma), so, I wrapped it up in a soft cloth (CRIED my eyes out!! ) and took it to the Vet's. I figured, he'd put it to sleep. Well......... at 6pm, I checked and they said it was doing better!!!!!! OK so that is GOOD! HOWEVER, my husband is very, very ill and in/out of the hospital. Taking in a sick kitten, would not be fair to that kitten, as we are gone to the hospital so much. Besides, my husband is not wanting another kitty I talked to the Vet's office and told them the situation. I told them I could not, in conscience, walk off and leave that sick and dying little kitten on the bikepath. They were so nice about it, but said the kitten was so ill, they may well, have to put it down.
Well, this afternoon, I called and that little kitty is SO IMPROVED!! It is up and around, and eating. NOW, I was really, really happy AND upset!!!!! I told the Vet tech about my husband and how I had such a dillemma. She called back and said: "Don't worry! The VET is taking the kitten to HIS house and giving it a home with him!" YAY!!!!!!
Today is a GOOD DAY!!!!!!!!

See? SOMETIMES, good things DO happen in this world!!!!

My sisters friend called me a cat whisperer, because im the only one who thinks of ways to bond with all the cats.

By the way great to hear about the kitten you rescued, that's an amazing rescue.
