Last morning, I found a little grey kitten in my neighbour’s front yard. It was dehydrated, tired and was being attacked by ants and flies. I could not bear to see the poor thing suffering.
I brought it home and realised that it was also suffering from loose motions. I fed it some milk and kitten food. It revived after the meal and started rubbing itself against my leg. I washed it as it had poop all over its hind legs. Clean and fed, the little kitten settled down and relaxed in my front yard.
In the evening, I drove it to the doctor. He said that the kitten was around one month and very dehydrated. He gave it three injections and also prescribed some medicines. I gave him the first dose last night and made a warm bed in a box for it to sleep. Before he went into the box, he looked at me as if to say thank you. I really hope and pray he recovers soon.
A little love and care goes a long way in connecting with other beings.
