Edit: we think she’s actually a girl!
My better half and I went to his cottage this week for a couple of days. I was going to work remotely, but when we got there we saw a tree had taken out the power line. We called hydro and got them to disconnect it, then went to town for candles, batteries, that sort of thing. On the way back, we realized we forgot ice and turned around. On the second trip back, we saw something scurry in front of us on the road – a kitten! It hid in a pile of rocks, so we stopped and pulled the dusty little bag of bones out. It didn’t struggle, just watched me clean out a bin so we could drive her to the cottage. She looks about 2 months old. We gave her some tuna (very little to see how she could handle it) every few hours, and then got proper food and some free milk replacement from the local pet store the next day.
Luckily I had my camera, and she was happy to have me do a photoshoot with her – well, she was warm, dry and fed, so she didn’t care about much else!
We’ll make sure she finds a good home, she’s very sweet, affectionate, loves to be held, and purrs like a motorboat! If you’d like to adopt her, please let me know. I can’t keep her due to my allergies.
Also, we saw a barred owl! I’ve always wanted to see an owl in the wild!
poor little thing! so skinny!!
What!? I’m a piece of wood… you can’t see me!
I totally need to make this into an animated gif!
