We had to rent a U-haul yesterday to move a huge chair, and when we were returning it, a tiny kitten ran across the road, limping. Of course, I had to stop and get it out of the road. My sweetie was behind me in the truck, and could see that kitty had run under the back wheel and was on his way into my rim. I dove under the car like an idiot, and finally was able to free him, after being nearly run over several times. I got bitten several times for my effort. We pulled over to a safe parking lot, after being yelled at for laying in the road like that, we dug kitty out of all the junk in the car, and determined that he seemed a little banged up, but not really injured. He limped around last night on the bed, and I was beginning to get woried that he was a little more injured that we thought, but he got his bearings a bit and laid right down next to my s/o and snuggled like mad. He is trying to nurse of anything he can find, but he can eat solid food. I just checked on him, he is eating, has pottied just fine, and is waaay too cute to stay here for too long. He is kind of brown and gold tabby with huge ears and feet, and beautiful golden eyes.He has a great purr you can hear across the room. I am fortunate to have a small bathroom he can stay in until we can figure out what to do with him. I am going to call the Carolina Animal Protection Society as soon as I am done with this post, to see if they can help. I am no longer working, ang my s/o just changed jobs, so we are very tight on funds right now. They are very good with helping with vet care and fostering. I have never gone to them before, because there were others that needed them more, but I think this little fellow needs to be seen by a vet, even just to make sure he is not sick. Wish me luck!
