SERIOUSLY? THE SEQUEL.

At six a.m. we were placing our trash in the street-side dumpster when we heard a faint meow. After some coaxing, out from under the dumpster came this little one. It’s been less than a week since the last dropoff (see previous post). Dumpee # 2 is much younger than the first kitten (this one is about five weeks), but healthy, though crusted in flea dirt and hungry. She has been seen by a veterinarian, bathed, and fed. A second foster has stepped up. We will offer her for adoption.

Did we mention how important it is to spay and neuter?

SERIOUSLY? The tiny creature you see at the base of the large tree is a kitten. One of our helpers heard her crying as he walked home from his shift at 10:00 p.m. The tree grows beside a bridge in the middle of fifteen acres.

As rescuers, we always caution people about assuming that stray animals have been dumped. Animals get lost in a variety of ways: they become frightened by thunderstorms or fireworks; they slip out doors; they jump out of windows in parking lots; workers/kids/visitors leave gates unlatched; other animals chase them, and they cannot find their way home. However, this kitten is tame and affectionate; she is not a feral born in the wild. There were no other kittens and no mother cat around (we spent some time looking). The property is fenced and posted, but the front fence is low (four feet) and near a highway. Our conclusion, sadly, is obvious.

Our dumpee, whom we have named Bridget, is about eight weeks old, weighs two pounds, and was covered with fleas. Had her Good Samaritan walked home a different way, or had she not meowed, he would not have found her in the dark. The next day had a high of 98 degrees, followed by strong thunderstorms at night.

We are a dog rescue, and we are full. Like other rescues, we receive dozens of calls and e-mails every week asking us to take strays, unwanted litters of puppies and kittens, dogs and cats that “cannot” go with owners who are moving. We need the help of everyone in addressing the problem. Please spay/neuter your pets. Donate—money, supplies, time—to your local animal welfare organizations. Don’t get a pet if you cannot make a commitment.

As for Bridget, she will remain with us until we find her a loving, responsible home. Her veterinary exam showed that she has roundworms (no surprise) but is otherwise healthy. Now that she has had care and food, she grows more beautiful and affectionate by the day. We have begun the necessary vaccinations. She will be available for foster or adoption in another two weeks. Our adoption contract requires spay/neuter, which we provide at our expense. If you can help us save this one, please e-mail us at stfrancisrescuenac@yahoo.com.

Please send Princess Muffet some love today. She is going into surgery this morning at a specialty clinic in Houston. We were lucky to get her in this quickly. This soft little one has been through a great deal, but she has the courage of a lion. A lamb toy helps. ... See MoreSee Less
