Seriously, no kidding! This adorable little thing stumbled after me in the dirty mud puddle filled road last Monday. As I walked home from dropping the girls off at school, I came upon a dirty mud puddle that this little cutie was trying to find it’s way out of. It had eye infections so bad that it couldn’t open them for the swelling. It had a runny nose worse than any I’ve seen and it cried this pitiful little”help me” sort of cry. It was having trouble breathing and I was expecting it to kill over at any moment. My heart went out to it. I picked it up by the nap of the neck afraid of what disease it had. Carried it a few doors down to our house and put it in the back yard. All the while I was telling it that I was going to get in trouble for bringing it home.
I called to Michael and he came outside. We tried to feed it and give it water..but it wasn’t interested. It just kept crying and stumbling around. I was about to go grocery shopping, so I left it in the back yard and left. When I returned home a few hrs later I was half way hoping that it would be gone and I wouldn’t be faced with the heart breaking decision to put it out of it’s misery. Well, it wasn’t gone, it was still there crying. Michael said…”Take it to the vet.”
So before he changed his mind, I hopped in the car and Trinity and I flew down to the nearest vet as it was almost 5:00. The vet was still open and saw us without any charge. She said if I would give it a home, she’d do it for free. So…after we spent about $20 at the pharmacy, fed her the right food and loved on her for a few days, this is what she looks like! She is doing so much better…and by the way, her name is Tigra.
