Update on tiny, injured kitten

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A few weeks ago, I posted about the tiny kitten my neighbor dropped off at my house. She had found it in the road during Tropical Storm Elsa.

Initially, she was in rough shape. Among other health issues, she was very tiny, soaking wet, covered in fleas and had an eye infection, diarrhea and was bleeding near her mouth.

But, she had a voracious appetite, and ate constantly. In fact, for about a week, I made sure to feed her kitten milk every couple of hours, but didn’t have to for long after that because she was crazy about wet food too and able to eat that on her own. And, soon, she started to look better and better.

I gave her some pureed pumpkin, which helped clear up the diarrhea.

In fact, she soon became so active that most of the pictures I tried to take of her came out blurry because she wouldn’t stand still. So, I ended up with a lot of shots like this one:

Finally, though, I got some good ones that I’m sharing a couple of. Kitten, who is tentatively named Slugger, because of the way she bats away the challenges in front of her, is a healthy weight, very active and affectionate, and getting super pretty.

Many “Wow my pet did That!” posts feature some of our own pets, including:


Hermione is a multicolored tabby who enjoys stuffed animals and sticking her tongue out. Hermione hails from Holbrook, New York. She has a sister named Bonus, who is a also a rescue kitty but much more camera shy.

Miley was adopted from the Nash County Animal shelter in 2012. She enjoys long walks in the park, long naps on the couch, and sticking out her tongue (we think we’re sensing a trend here). She hopes the joie de vi¬∑vre she displays in some of these pictures will inspire you to take your doggie for a romp in the park.

We’ve said it before…we have no idea what kind of dog Scooby is but we do know he lives to take walks, making all kinds of weird vocalizations as soon as he sees the leash.
