Dumped Black Kitten

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

My pastors wife had a box this morning and all the children were gathered around. I knew trouble was brewing. My 2 children ran to me and told me she found a black kitten in the bushes at the church this morning. It had really smelly diarrhea, was skin and bones, was very young (about 7 weeks old), had balding spots, and they thought it was hit by a car or hurt in its hind end.

I told them I would take the kitten if no one else wanted it. Well guess what? We have her.

Luckily I have a terrific vet and we got her in today. Yes, they have Sunday hours - awesome isn't it?

He had ear mites and every kind of worm possible. The vet was really neat and let my kids see the kittens ear mites on a screen (it was gross), she also let them look through the microscope at the worms. They even bathed the cat because he must have had the diarrhea for a while and he had sore spots on the back of his legs and was completely raw, poor thing. The 176 for all the meds and tests. He was tested for feline luekemia and aids - both negative. But the vet was kind enough to give us a 10 percent discount so the bill came out to 160.10.

Now we need a name. He is mostly black with just a tiny bit of white on his chest. Any suggestions?

Lucky

Smokey, Ash(es), Cinder.....

You're both Lucky to have each other. We have two cats that we adopted as rescued kittens and they have been wonderful additions to the family.

How about Angel. She showed up knowing someone from the church would take care of her.

In the Bible, when angels appear they always tell you to not be afraid. Even though her appearance was less than perfect, you chose to help her.

LOL! Great names. He sure is a lucky cat and spoiled too.

CLX is definately original. I'll mention that to the kids. I know it was a lot to spend and I didn't really need any unexpected bills right now. I think they did every test possible on him. I have other pets so I guess it's good we knew exactly what he had and got him treated for everything.

The kids are kind of thinking Ashy or Asher. I guess it will end up being whatever name they agree on.

He's seems to be doing really well. Eating and drinking a lot. He's not very active at all which bothers me but I have no idea what he went through and for how long. He must have come from some kind of home that gave him attention because he is very affectionate, not wild at all. I just wish I could see some spunk out of him. Maybe in a few days he'll be better.

Over the last 20 years all of my animals names have started with the letter B. When my 14 year old white cat Berkeley brought home a black kitten 6 months ago I named him BK, black kitty.It gets a few laughs but mostly eye rolls. :rolleyes:
