Oh my gosh. It is so cute. I am sure it is feral. It ran across the road from a field and into another field. I snatched it up and brought it home.
My plan is to de-flea it tonight, giving a bath, clean its ears, get all the burrs out of its fur and of course feed the little devil.
Since I have an FIP positive tested cat, I cannot keep any more cats. I have the kitten in a large container with box, food etc. It is in my guest room. It seems scared and happy to be eating!
On Tuesday I will call my vet to drop the little one off for an evaluation, while trying to pitch the thought of adoption to one of my co-workers.
I think I may have saved this little one from a typical barn cat life. Around here farmers consider cats part of the farm but don't treat them with much respect. The come and go.....get sick, die, eaten by other animals, stepped on by cows etc. They also get hit by cars..... and reproduce like crazy, repeating the cycle.
I will keep you guys posted on how its doing. It looks quite healthy, but dirty and smelly. I think I spotted its Mom in the field too. The farmer won't miss the kitten. I am sure they have many more.
Why don't people spay and neuter their animals? I just don't get it.
