    Baby Kitten

    Post  DearWife on Sun 16 Jun 2013, 9:28 am

    So we came home from a friends home this evening, and as we release the dogs, I see a commotion with them in the front of the house.  I look down and they have found what I thought was another possum.  But then I hear a very small tiny, "meow!".

    I say that is a cat!  The dogs are going at it, when my husband ends up kicking my bigger dog to get him away because he wasn't letting loose.  When he did let loose, I heard another "meow".  It's little body had flung under the stool my son was sitting on earlier on in the day...he had put it there by chance when he was waiting for us to finish up in the backyard.

    My husband held my big dog back, while Mighty is in the mix but less aggressive about it.  I see the kitten, when my husband gives me some gloves to pick it up...I would have used my bare hands but no telling what it may have had.  Given the gloves, I gently lift the kitten off the ground to comfort it. 

    I bring it to a portion of the porch where our dogs couldn't get to.  Mighty is not sure what to do as he's looking through the porch bars...I am petting the kitten until it sits up on it's own.  It's eyes were teared up and closed.  We could not keep the little feller, so I had to take him out our yard.  I placed it in our neighbors flower bed that has small little yellow flowers.  I could not do anything else to save him, I do not know if it lived or died, but it was assuring that when the little feller was on the porch, it sat up like a grown cat would. 

    When on the porch, Mighty did not know what to think.  As I pet the kitten, Mighty watched intently, his eyes glaring steadily upon the little one...when I saw that, I told Mighty, see Mighty, this is a kitten...it is ok, and I went back to gently petting it saying, that it will be okay.

    I pray it is okay.  It happened all so fast, I wondered if the kitten found a compartment under our vehicle, and rode along with us but my husband said that was not possible, that it would have gotten very hot under the car.  It was all alone with no other cat in sight, and how it wandered into our yard as it did, is beyond me.  I wish I could have kept it, regardless if the neighbors in the neighborhood do not spay their cats and there are an influx of cats, it is still a kitten and has the breath of life within it.

    The flowerbed was the only place I could rest its fragile little body.  Its fur was like that of blonde...like this kitten but maybe a little darker:

    Ahhh...

    That was so sad to hear about, DearWife.

    Always gives me a sinking feeling when the hypothalmus of pets kicks in beyond stopping. Or is it amygdala?  When I read some books by Spencer Quinn (which he tried writing from the perspective of the dog (Chet), who is a sidekick to a detective(Bernie)) I see that he notes that Chet starts his actions before his comprehension fully kicks in.  It's why werewolves are always portrayed so unpredicatably, I suppose -- though that's not saying your dogs are werewolves.

    Hope the kitten survives and thrives after getting her bearings back.

    Below is an anecdote written from Chet the Dog's perspective:

    Spencer Quinn, novelist, wrote:We got on a freeway, then another, traffic stop-and-go at first, which made Bernie’s hands tense up on the wheel, but then it eased and we barreled along, the Porsche making a rumbling roar I loved and sights and smells zipping by so fast it would make your head spin. Mine doesn’t spin, exactly, but I can turn it pretty far back if I want, like really, really far, so that my nose is actually touching my -
    “Chet! What the *bleep* are you doing?”
    I whipped my head around straight, sat up tall and still, eyes front, a professional through and through.

    Sometimes nobody can really help how it all comes out in the end , it just turns out however it does.

    Hi beejean, you are right.

    I have held out some hope on that little kitten though.  I mean at least was given hope because twice now, I have heard on seperate days, 'meows' but a little older sounding than when I helped the little one, it isn't an older cat either.  I kept hearing the 'meowing' but not able to see where it was coming from.  The last I heard was a couple days ago...being the same sounding as the first time.

    well, if you catch a glimpse of the little kitten, might consider calling it Aliza (joyful) because it was able to move on past the incident.

    However, be mindful yourself, because cats have the flaw of imprinting whoever was near them at the moment that injury or fear struck and connecting that person as the "cause" of their harm. And you might be the one that's imprinted.

    Take Care, dear wife !
