So, this is kind of my husband’s story, but he gave me permission to post it on my blog. My husband was driving to work early last week, when he saw a deer at the side of the road stomping on something.
He beeped his horn, the deer bolted, and he got out to check on whatever it was stomping.
It was a little black kitten, eyes still blue, just a baby.
So he brought it home, gave it a bath, gave it some milk and some licks of liverwurst, and he called me to ask what to do.
I suggested he bring it to my dad’s old boss, an elderly lady who lives nearby.
So he brought it over, and it turns out it was HER kitten! His name is Mikey, and he had gotten loose, and she was SO worried about him.
My husband chatted with her for a while and left the kitten with her.
Kind of a happy ending? My husband says he didn’t appear to be hurt. So here’s to hoping Mikey has a long and well loved life!
Have you ever found a stray? What did you do with it? In Wisconsin, it’s my understanding that you can’t keep a stray. You have to turn it in to a shelter or what not and then, if it isn’t claimed, then you can adopt it.
How does it work where you live? We have Lost Dogs of Wisconsin as a major place to look for missing dogs. Inquiring minds want to know!
