unscheduled project

we woke up to LOUD and desperate meows a couple of mornings ago. this sweet thing had been abandoned in our part of the country. and i do with not much civilization. i wish people would be more responsible for another life, whether it meows or barks!!! poor thing has a torn up lip (not visible from the photo angle) and a prior broken leg we suspect. since it has a gimpy leg we have named it Chester. a lot has happened in it's short little life.

well, his little life has improved immensly in the last 48 hrs. he is eating well and sleeping as a kitten should. thanks to internet, we are learning what a kitten this young needs and maybe we can help it's survival rate!! it started playing with a small toy and is content when we are around.

this guy has to stay outside due to my intense allergies to kitties and cats. he has staked out a very safe corner of our garage and comes out when called for his meals. woohoo, what a quick study. food works everytime for all of us.

well, here's to the celebration of life and the little gifts that are presented to us along the way.

well you sure get a blue ribbon for rescuing Chester.... It really is a shame how people have no feelings when they abandon these poor wee souls.
