To the person that left the three tiny sick kitten
Posted by snickers (+819) 11 years ago
Kittens in front of the pound today in a empty box with no blanket. Karma someday will be knocking on your door.
No thanks to you they are warming up and hopefully will live to be adopted out when they are old enough.

I agree it sucks that they were left there in that manner but at least they were left there at all. Sadly, far too many people simply dump unwanted pets in the woods or on the side of the road.

oh, poor babies! They look cold! Is there anything I can do?
Top
Posted by snickers (+819) 11 years ago
I get those in also. All the critters here are from the worse abuse situations that weren't adoptable. Throw from moving cars, hit on the head and even worse situations.
But the thing that makes me angry about these is that it was COLD here and they didn't even have a blanket in the box with them. `
If anyone can foster them until they are eating on their own and can be adopted out please let me know. I am really short on time with all the critters here.

Thanks so much to the two people that offered to foster.
I will keep them the next two days to make sure that they are stable as I know you both have kids. Then we can split them up. The orange and gray/white are doing better then the torty.
I will get in contact with you both in the next few days. Thanks again

We rescued a little benji type dog years ago. Someone threw him out by the train tracks when he was only about six weeks old. We found him under my daughter's car at Christmas time. Cold, scared and stinking of diesel. He became my pillow puppy and I still have him. Someone sure missed out on a bundle of love. But I'm glad they didn't keep him. I hate to think what kind of tortuous life he could have lived!

I've often wondered if the trauma of abandonment often results in a animal being more loving and loyal when adopted by people that know how to foster that relationship. Most of my pets came from those circumstances. Sure seems to be the case. The only exception was a cat who would have been skittish regardless.

Bottled raised kitties make great pets because they bond with people as their caregivers

They are lots of work and some die

So true, Snickers, they are a lot of work! But so worth it all when you factor in how much fun they are to watch They're also much easier than puppies, as soon as they move around they usually use a litter box. Good luck to the volunteers that have offered to help with these!

Snickers,
Thank you for taking care of these kittens. This upsets me. Ditto what Wendy said. Spay or neuter your pets!!!!! I wish I was in Miles City, I would adopt one of the kittens.

Your a good person to help out these babies. I showed their picture and told their story to my two spoiled cats, trying to point out how lucky they where. They just hissed at me and went back to sleep by the heat register in my chair, I'm sure they will make me pay for waking them.

If you still need someone to foster a kitten, I can do so. I am home often and I don't have any kids. Please let me know!

They had their first bath
All three are doing better. As soon as they are healthy I can send them to the foster homes. They are eating a special mixture on their own. If anyone wants to adopt them as soon as they are healthy they can adopt them through East Main Animal Clinic
Right now they are on eye meds and meds for the Upper respiratory infection. But they are healing up quickly

In the bottom picture of the orange kitten, what is all over its paw?
Top
Posted by snickers (+819) 11 years ago
That was cat litter stuck to his foot because he was wet.
They are at their new foster home and getting spoiled rotten. They were getting lots of love.

This breaks my heart! If you need any help i can help. I am not working right now, i am a student at mcc and am only gone for about one hour for class. I would be willing to take care of these kittens till they can find good homes.

How can people be so ignorant!

If you think this is appalling, did you read about the cat that was tossed into a bonfire on the front page of last night's Star? Steve had a terrible time writing the article without using the sort of language that is inappropriate to a family newspaper.

The cat was neutered by the fire. We figure whoever did it deserves the same treatment.

I can't believe even the most animate haters of cats could do something like that I don't care how high or drunk you are...if the ability to do things like that and the donkey shooting don't define truly deranged minds, I don't know what does. Sickening..

Serial killers apparently start out abusing animals...

On CCN.com a couple of months ago, there was a story about a man who hung his 2 pitbulls up in the basement and then shot them with a gun with a homemake silencer on it --- all because he and his family were going on vacation and they couldn't afford to kennel them. Needless to say, he got hung up by his.

Terrible story in the STAR about the cat and a bonfire. Sick-sick.

Wonder if it was a random act as the donkey killings, or an example of Ritual Sacrifice re Paganism, Satanism, Druidism as discussed on this forum a while back?

The kittens are doing great. One has been adopted out and we have 2 left. IS anyone interested in adopting these kittens? I would prefer they go together as they are very attatched to each other.

Don't feel bad if they are separated, Bluetooth. As they get older, they outgrow that very quickly. I raised a batch years ago for East Main, and ended up keeping 2 sisters. By the time they were a year old, they stopped even playing together. Now, they pass each other in a room, hiss and one will take a swipe at the other and run off

Kudos to you for taking care of these three

It just makes my heart sink. I am so glad that there are people out there who really do care, in my mind there are only 2 things in this world that are innocent and helpless. Children and animals. They are dependant on us to take care of them. I hope for every heartless person in this world there are a dozen more who care. Thank you to all the hard working people who make this world a better place

I don't like the fact that these poor kittens were dumped. I am thankful they were dumped somewhere where they were found and someone can take care of them. Thanks to all of the volunteers.

What really bothers me is the idiot who threw the cat in a bonfire. As Amorette said in an earlier post, that person should receive the same treatment!

Ever so true, Vicky. The reality is..we'll be lucky if we see another "heart-felt" apology in the paper, as was the punishment doled out to the sub-human donkey torturer. I have heard through the ever reliable rumor mill, this perp has been bragging about doing it, and is very proud of himself/herself? Hope they have to pay the East Main vet bill That'll slap the smirk off

Did they find the person who did that to the cat? I think they should have a psychological evaluation! I can not believe you would hurt an innocent animal like that.
