Another Rescued Kitten

This little guy was rescued yesterday.  I was up at 4:00am and could not sleep.  When I went to the kitchen, I could hear this high pitched meow coming from the very front window. 

I tried to see which cat it was, using a flashlight, but could not.  I did see our barn cat Tim, so I thought maybe it was him.  

Later that afternoon, the kids came running, saying "you gotta come see this."  My son said, "I thought I heard something this morning."

We, at first glance, thought it may be blind, or have an eye injury the way he held his head to the side.  Once we got him in the cat carrier we saw that he may have been hurt by someone tossing him out their car window, while driving by.  He was underneath a large evergreen that is not far off the road.  It makes me sick that people do this to animals.

It's a poor photo, but you can see the little guy is hurt.  My son was able to drive him to the Humane Society for a $30.00 donation.  It's sad we have to pay to get him help, but it's better than a larger vet bill, and this little guy gets a new life.

Speaking of donations, my one daughter is participating in a fundraiser to raise money for the same Humane Society.  They have taken the two kittens we've rescued this year.  Hop on over to her blog to help donate to the yearly Mutt Strut.

She would very much appreciate any donations.  So would the Humane Society. Someone had to help these animals get a new chance at a good life.

Does anybody know of a place to take rescued kitten? I have been getting little kittens maybe 6 weeks old who keep coming near my yard and i have 3 rottweilers and am scared they will hurt the babies, not on purpose but the kitties are little and they are very big. please help me find them homes. I have one now that appears to be a female tortoisshell. call 813-715-4579 thank you.

Dorie call the Humane Society in your county (or any nearby). If there is no Mom, they usually will take them in and care for them.

call the county dog warden. they will tell you what is available in your neck of the woods.
if you get a rude person call the county courthouse and ask there.
