BOOMER WAS ADOPTED DECEMBER 7, 2004!
A Good Samaritan saw a cat lying on the side of the road and stopped to see if the cat was still alive. Sadly, the cat was dead. But there was her 8-week-old kitten, huddled up against her body, not wanting to leave his mother. So the Good Samaritan picked up the kitten and brought him to us. Surprisingly, this was not a feral kitten that had been born outdoors. No, this is was an incredibly friendly kitten who purred up a storm the minute we took him out of his carrier and even with being in a strange place, dove into the food bowl and started to chow down. The only conclusion we can draw from this is that because the kitten is very socialized with humans, he was born in somebody's home, somebody who deemed it necessary to dump the mother cat and her kitten to fend for themselves rather than simply having the mother cat spayed to prevent her from having litters. The mother cat is no longer an issue. She will not be having any more litters. But fortunately, the kitten has the opportunity to be neutered and go on to a home where he will be cared for forever.
