Tiny Black Tuxedo Feral I Found Today
The town I live in has a HUGE feral cat population and I see them daily, but today while heading to the grocery store I saw what looks like about a 7-8 week old black tuxedo feral kitten in the parking lot. Obviously looking for food. This one grabbed at my heart-strings so I had to act.
The cat leaped into a parked car and climbed into the engine bay. With the help of four people and about an hour of work the kitten was removed and wrapped in a towel. Now, do I take it home? I already have two adult cats (one Tuxedo).
So, the kitten is now here at home in a large pet carrier and is eating. He/She is almost starved to death.
At this point I intend to simply get it healthy, have it neutered and possibly release it. Although a beautiful kitten I'm not sure if it can be socialized, although still very young.
Sometimes—every few years—my heart will not let me pass. This kitten has a loud spirit that was calling me and I could not stop until it was safe...
Any suggestions from those who know I will welcome.
