Life is what happens when you’re busy planning….We’ve all heard that before.
Well I’d like to tell you about my weekend. But first I’m going to back up a bit. My hubby and I met on a dating site. I’m pretty sure the reason we were matched up by EHarmony is because we both had pets. LOTS of pets. (If they both like pets, they must be compatible, right?) Dan & I met…we fell in love…we got married….and now we have a furry blended family. We’re kinda like the Brady Bunch, but with 4 dogs and a cat. 🙂
Anyway, Saturday morning we decided to go for a walk. We wanted to start early because it was going to be really hot – 100 degrees by early afternoon. Off we went, enjoying our time together and the beautiful day. We were about two miles into the walk when I heard a noise. I said stop, listen, did you hear that? There it came again. A tiny little mew. Huh? Where was it coming from? We were at a really busy intersection. Not good.
We walked over to some bushes and listened again. Out from under them poked a tiny little face.
I remember thinking oh my gosh, what should we do? We can’t take it home. We can’t leave it here. We can’t have another animal. If we leave it here it will die! As all of these things rushed thru my head, we both knew the right thing to do was to take it home.
This is a tiny little kitten. So little & hairy, I wasn’t sure if it was a little boy or girl! We picked out a couple of names just in case.
We went to NorthPointe Animal HospitalÂ where Dr. McIntyre gave it a good check-up. She believes the kitten to be 5-6 weeks old and weighed in at just a pound. Dr. McIntyre checked her over carefully & informed me that we have a little girl kitten and other than being malnourished, she is in remarkably good health. We named her Stella.
My blog is about food, family, friends & fun. Does this fall into any of those categories, probably not! But I wanted to share this story because there is NO EXCUSE for abusing an animal. This tiny kitten was dumped – no food or water. It was facing certain death. Saturday we were lucky enough to stumble across this little creature. Bringing her home saved her life. We didn’t plan it, but Stella came into our lives on Saturday and it was a really good day!
