Tossed Away: Thursday Purrsday
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!
First of all…this story has a VERY happy ending. My purrs are cranked to high along with The Kid Sage because Mom L told us about the incredible rescue of these precious kittens when they were just about 2 weeks old…
They are about 4 weeks old in this photo…my former Vet Doc Josie, retired but not out of being a cat specialist…she fostered them for a week and Mom L went up to meet and hold them.
They, along with two other siblings, were discarded alive in a large garbage (rubbish) dumpster. A volunteer from Community Concern for Cats (CC4C) heard them and found them…they were covered in food and garbage. Likely they had not been there too long…hours, not days, as they were not too badly dehydrated. Unfortunately, two of them died.
These two, however, are now doing well. The black kitten had to have sub-q fluids which Doc Josie administered…and he was touch and go over about 15 hours. Doc Josie was feeding him every 3 or so hours. She thinks he is doing great now! They are both eating kitten wet cat food like champs.
This is a slideshow of the two surviving kittens…they appear a bit dirty..but they are receiving constant sponge baths..besides being messy eaters…they were, after all, tossed out as trash in a garbage dumpster.
