|The morning after bringing her in|
Another lady in the park helped the kitten out too, but couldn't take her in because of their dogs, so left kitten outside with food, water, and a nice place to stay. Most anyone who knows cats / kittens knows they don't stay willingly in one place, even if it's decked out in the freshest towels. Once they have an agenda everything else goes by the wayside.
I've heard Dr. Naidu, the "father" of Lactoferrin, speak several times before, and he tells the story of a young lost dog that was hit by several cars on an LA freeway. The dog was severely hurt, yet he took the dog in and got him healthy, bones healed, and all that jazz.
A major take away I got from the several times I've heard him speak about the dog, is that if something happens, and we're aware of it, we must step up and take responsibility. Like in his case, he didn't hit the dog, nor knew the dog at all, yet he saw it and had to make things right.
A brief video featuring some of Dr. Naidu's accomplishments. He doesn't speak about the dog, just an overview of what I know about him. He's had several more large accomplishments, such as working with Indian Special Forces very early on in his career.
So, it is with this background and knowledge, that I stepped up to the plate to take this kitten in. The kitten appears healthy, though I would've still helped if she wasn't. Scatter, one of my current cats, is keeping his distance, and generally quiet. I don't think he's very pleased about this but he's not acting up. Paisley, on the other hand, continually voices her displeasure.
This Friday the kitten will be going to local humane society. She'll very likely get adopted quick. If she's not adopted before I leave will adopt her back myself. Another reason want to bring her in is to get her fixed and to make sure she has nothing bad, plus maybe she's a lost kitten who ran away from home?! Not quite sure.
I do get the distinct feeling she was a house kitten to begin with, then someone brought her out here to the boonies and dumped her, left her alone to fend for herself. I also get the feeling, not sure how accurate, that she was also part of a litter of kittens, and was one left and isn't too "kitten like" anymore.
|Look at them thar eyes|
Either way, she's in my care and I will do my best to make sure she ends up in the best home possible. When I bring her to the humane society will also leave a gift so that she'll be adopted faster.
Best wishes to everyone for the best Thanksgiving ever!
