Was going into town this morning and found #14 on the side of the road! She's very small, surprised I saw her. By the time I stopped and backed up to where she was, she had run back across a ditch, but I could hear her meowing. As I came around the back of the truck, she saw me and ran into my hands.
Anyway, was only about a mile from the house, so I turned around and got a carrier and took her to a vet. On my way back down the same road at about the same place I found her, there was a pack of 4 dogs headed down the side of the road. I know where those dogs live, and they have cats too, but who knows what could've happened? It was getting close to closing time and I didn't think I'd be able to get to my regular vet before they closed, so I went to one closer to my house. $138.00 later
, she's upstairs in an isolation room after having eaten a ton.
I think we'll name her Millie because I found her on Windmill Rd. Wanted to call her something else, but of course the wife thought it was stuuupid.
Anyway, here is Millie. (BTW, this is NOT the stray that's also been hanging around lately)
Vet said he thought she's about 6 weeks. She was infested with fleas and ear mites
She had also been thrown out of a moving car because she has scabs on her chin, upper left lip, and lower left eyelid. Also, her left upper and lower canine teeth are broken off.
She's a trooper tho'. She never stopped purring the whole time at the vet; well except to meow
She's gonna fit right in with the rest of The Herd!! We love her already
