A couple of days ago, I was walking home after a long day when I spotted this cute little baby all alone on the street looking lost and hungry-as a single stray kitten.
It's apparent the little kitten was deadly afraid of me, and sometimes fear makes a cat aggressive. They are always afraid of the unknown or something they know little about (just like humans do)-but hey, kittens are small and humans are big, so you cannot blame a kitten for being aggressive! See? those visible signs of fear? the raised fur and arched back? Definitely not a play-fighting kitty!
The first thought that came to my mind was: "Oh, poor, scared little thing! I have to save this furry baby from the streets." But how could I grab it unprotected (without protection gloves)?
Have you ever tried catching a wild baby cat right off the streets? No matter how small they are they put out a fight and you usually end up being a possible target for an attack.
Epilogue: I ended up bringing a cuddly bundle of purr home! (Don't ask how...you don't want to know!)
Afterwards, I called the local no-kill shelter.
After all, I am so happy to have succeeded in making the world a better place, at least for one little kitten!
Have you ever rescued a cat or dog?
Hope you have a fabulous Autumn weekend, my lovelies! xx
