The saga of the kitten I found on a back road a few weeks ago looks like it will have a happy ending.
If you haven’t read the original post, I would recommend doing so. Then come back here and read this post as it will all then make sense.
Anyway, looking back – you’ll remember I found this kitten (3-5 weeks old) on a back road on my way to work. I took it to a local animal hospital, where they made sure this kitten had a chance. I, of course, had the chance to adopt it, but with a 15-year-old cat and the probability of things changing personally for me in the next few months being high, I decided it wouldn’t be best.
Still, if this cat was going to head off to the local shelter or something like that, I was going to figure something out.
My worries started to end when one of the vet techs told me she’d, at worst, make it one of the animal hospital pets.
Then she found a home for the kitten.
I can’t lie that it was tough. Look at the photos I have here – what a cute kitten. But if he is going to a good home, I can’t complain.
Anyway, about a week after bringing this little guy to the hospital, I returned to see it. It was meowing, exploring and everything else. The reality was somewhat of a head trauma, as well as it couldn’t see out of an eye. That all changed over the course of the week.
The day I went up, it was definitely exploring. He seemed like a happy kitten (again, see the photos in this post) and was way further along than I could have imagined. It was quite refreshing to see.
I still don’t want to know how this kitten ended up where it did.
The vet tech took the kitten home over the one weekend to let it play with a few other foster kittens. I was told the mama cat cleaned up the little guy and it played well with the other kittens.
Soon, he will head to his new home.
I hope, over time, this kitten grows into a good cat, has a long and healthy life and makes his new owner happy. I still can’t imagine what would have happened to that poor thing if I hadn’t been coming along that day. It probably wouldn’t have ended pretty though.
Instead, this kitten has a good chance at life. Hopefully everything continues to work out for him!
