Dad and I were trucking down the highway and we both saw him at the same time. A teeny kitten sitting forlornly on the side of the road! Dad stopped the car and backed up to pick him up. This little kitty just sat there looking confused and let Dad pick him up. He handed him to me and we realized the kitty was injured. He was still actively bleeding from wounds to his nose, mouth, and one paw. One eye was swollen shut! There was a box nearby and we assume he must have been literally thrown out of a car right before we got there. Poor baby!
Into the car we jumped and raced over to the local Animal Rescue...who shook their heads at us. Nope, they could not take a wounded kitten. And they warned us that a cat with even minor injuries would be put to sleep by the local pound. Oh, the poor kitty! So I said that I didn't want to see him die and Dad forked out the cash for a quick vet visit. The vet gave some antibiotics and pain killers and said this cat was only about 10 weeks old.
With a little food and some TLC the little guy is doing much better. His wounds are healing and he is the sweetest little cat! We're calling him Happy Cat because he never stops purring!
We already have 2 adult cats with us! Help!!! We don't need another CAT!!!
