More kitten tales

In my last post I was having a mini-rant about free kittens and being aware of the potential costs of having a cat companion.  Well, here's a perfect example of a situation where that came into play.  I was forwarded a kijiji ad that said they had a kitten with a broken rib and couldn't afford medical care and would somebody help.  I sighed and looked around, I guess I was that somebody.  I ended up talking to a young girl the story was murky but their cat had kittens and the kitten fell or something and was injured.  They had no money, no car and no way to help the kitten, and to top it off the kitten was in Mississauga.  Thanks to Avril for offering to pick up the kitten and to THS for agreeing to take him right away, little Jeremy was delivered yesterday afternoon to the THS to get much needed medical care and a good home.  Avril said the house was full of animals, big dogs, a litter of puppies (surely destined to be sold), and of course an unspayed cat.  Little Jeremy is lovely, when I picked him up he was tiny and I could feel something wrong on his side, I know he's in good hands now.  
Injured kitten
Maria who feeds in the west end and has a female she just can't trap, found a litter of kittens a few weeks ago, no surprise there.  Thankfully she got them while they are young and has been able to tame them up, in a few weeks they will go to THS for adoption and be snapped up I'm sure.
